Fall Travel: Smart Apps to Use While Staying at Our Saskatoon Hotel
Smart technology is not only smart it can be a godsend when you’re away from home. This is especially apparent when looking at all the apps that are available to travellers and specifically for those visiting the beautiful city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. With just a click of a button, you can have a meal delivered from a choice of restaurants to your Saskatoon hotel room or search out local events and activities. Need a way to pay for parking or want to find a driving service? There are even apps available for those travelling with their pets. We’ve downloaded some of our favourites here:
Explore Saskatoon from the Palm of Your Hand
More than a business directory Townapps offers visitors a way to explore Saskatoon like a local. The free app features a local news feed, a 7-day Saskatoon weather forecast, info on local attractions and directions to them as well as a search tool for local restaurants, shops, services, as well as where to stay among Saskatoon accommodations.
Click to Find Events Around Town
Looking to see what concerts, theatre shows, sports games, movies, workshops, and other events are happening around Saskatoon when you visit? The nearify app allows you to search events by date, category, artist, venue and even what you’re in the mood for — martini party, anyone?
A New Way to Pay for Parking
For those driving around town from our hotel in Saskatoon, the WaytoPark app can be used as a way to pay for parking directly through your phone. You can even extend your parking session without having to travel to your parking stall. The app is available for both iOS (App Store) and Android (GooglePlay).
Hands Free Driving
There may be the occasion, such as a night on the town, where the car is best left at your hotel. To help with finding public transportation around the city, you can download the Saskatoon Transit app for both iPhone or Android, which provides GPS bus stop locations and routes around Saskatoon, as well as how long it will take for your bus to arrive.
If you are in need of a chauffeur or designated driver, why not leave the driving to someone who knows the city through DriverSeat Saskatoon. The app connects users with local drivers that will operate your own car around town as well as to and from the airport. You can also book a specialized shuttle service to and from your hotel suite in Saskatoon when transportation in a provided vehicle is needed.
Ways to Upload your Pet in Your Travels
If you want to include your dog in your travel plans, download Bring Fido, which makes it quick and easy to find Saskatoon pet friendly hotels as well as nearby dog parks, beaches, as well as pet-friendly restaurants and activities. The app also lists useful services and businesses such as dog walkers, groomers, vets, and pet supply stores in the area.
A Push for Hotel Meal Delivery Service
Developed right next door in Winnipeg, Man., the Skip the Dishes app is a food service, where you can order meals for delivery or pickup. Choose from a large choice of Saskatoon restaurants offering everything from burgers, pizza to vegetarian and ethnic choices and dine in with a delicious meal delivered right to your Saskatoon hotel suite with only the click of a few buttons.
