PYMNTS’ Provider Ranking of Travel Apps traverses the known digital world, occasionally going off-road and off-the-grid in rating apps that take us to wondrous places outside. Remember outside? Sure, you do. Pack a bag. Board a plane. See the sights. It’s all coming back now.
We’ve taken to tied scores lately — or rather, that’s how the cards are falling — as competition intensifies in app country. Travel apps may even overheat if expectations for the return of travel are even half-true. We may be at a moment of peak undischarged travel demand.
Assuming that’s true, commit these rankings to memory. There will be a quiz.
The Top Five
That tie begets cascading changes down through this new Provider Ranking of Travel Apps, as almost everyone gains a spot virtually by default. Even so, the rank is the rank. Check it.
The Top 10
Who doesn’t love surprises? We’ve got two for you.
New at No. 9 this month is the Couchsurfing Travel App, offering local accommodations in thousands of cities worldwide.
Also new, at No. 10, it’s the PriorityPass app for airport lounge access.
