If you use Kayak and Google maps to book a flight and then find your way around a strange city for a business trip. There is new or little-known technology out there that might make your travel less stressful.
To book your flight, try Google Flights. It uses the same technology as Kayak and Orbitz to find flights but it doesn't stop there. Google Flights shows you the cheapest day to travel, gives you the best combination of cost and trip duration and highlights the best choice in green. It might even notify you that the price of the flight you chose is going up or down and when that could happen.

App in the Air keeps you updated on how long you have to check in for your flight and notifies you of any flight-related changes. Here is Business Insider's map of airport Wifi passwords.
