Right, and fortunately for us we now have apps to get us through the tough bits. Here are five must have travel tools for the next time you take flight.

Dufl is a premium, luxury travel service that acts as a personal valet for travelers. The highlight of this service: the app does the packing for you. Yes, you read correctly.

The concept behind the app is to eliminate the main stressors involved during traveling such as arriving at the airport hours before a flight, paying for bags, fighting for overhead compartment space, and of course spending precious minutes waiting at baggage claim.
When traveling somewhere entirely new it can be difficult to discover local hidden gems and truly quality spots.
