With Memorial Day weekend right around the corner, you've probably started thinking about summer travel plans, be it a flight overseas, a drive to visit family or maybe just a day-trip to the beach. No matter where you're planning on going this summer, high gas prices are going to make saving money more difficult than usual, affecting everything from the cost of a drive to the cost of a flight. That's why we're lucky Apple's App Store offers so many amazing applications that can help you save money and make the most out of your trip, whether you're planning to splash out on luxury accommodations or take in some sights with a bit more frugality. Beyond the traditional travel applications that find the lowest-cost flights, hotel rooms and car rentals, it's possible to find inventive, offbeat apps tailored to the more particular vacation-seekers. For those looking to visit large cities, for instance, there are a slew of apps dedicated to travelers to the country's (and the world's) concrete jungles, while road-trip maniacs can find fabulous routes and bizarre sites to see along the way. Summer's coming, so get your apps and hit the road, Jack!
