Cover the basics of trip-planning like setting flight reminders and crafting your itinerary with these functions.
1. In-app reminders so you don't miss your flight
Add in your flight details after you’ve created a trip.
Whether you’re the meticulous sort who loves to be on top of your travel plans, or the laid-back fella who can’t be bothered with the little details, Ready To Travel has flight alert reminders to ensure that you won’t be dashing across the airport terminal to catch your plane.
Simply include your flight’s departure and arrival airport, time and date in your trip details and it’ll automatically be synced to the app!
2. Create and share trip itineraries with your travel buddies
Sorting out the logistics of your trip pre-flight can become quite the hassle - especially when it's a big group. The app allows everyone to be in on the planning, making sure we're all happy campers.
Just create an itinerary and then invite your friends and family to either view or edit it. This means one less site - like Google Docs - to refer to. Users will also be able to create private tasks within the itineraries, so everyone can keep up with their responsibilities for the trip.
Plan your route under ‘Itinerary’ and fill in the details accordingly.
Once you’re done, ensure that you and your buddies are on the same page, literally.
Alternatively, clueless first time visitors or those in need of a little extra help can refer to past routes shared by other users with the app’s itinerary discovery function. Simply follow the itineraries uploaded or plan your own path around their recommended attractions while you’re on the go.
3. Have reliable mobile wifi coverage in over 50 countries
Choose from ReadyWiFi Lite, Value, and Premium.
No matter how pressed for time or garang we may be, mobile wifi is a must. Be it for navigation, times of emergency, or even for the gram, Ready To Travel has 3 ReadyWiFi plans for you to choose from.
Price-wise, it’s similar to other affordable and reputable providers of mobile wifi routers. But get this - there’s free delivery to your doorstep, so you don’t have to make a trip down specially just to collect it.

As long as the countries fall under ReadyWiFi’s coverage, travellers will be able to stay connected with no added costs.
4. Pamper yourself pre-flight at a premium airport lounge
Get yourself SATS lounge access stat.
Airport lounges are often associated with being very atas and reserved only for VIPs, but with Ready To Travel, you can actually enjoy the perks of these luxurious sanctuaries as well, at a fraction of the price of a business class ticket.
No airline membership is required when booking with the app, so just select your trip and scroll to check out the different SATS Premier Lounges in each terminal. Plus, this is an app-exclusive perk too - you won’t be able to get one-time access to the lounge anywhere else.
You’ll even enjoy better service in case of a flight cancellation or delay, or if you need to change your seats.
