5 Apple iPhone Apps for Holiday Escapes

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - Thanksgiving may be fresh in the memory, but with Christmas and New Year's Eve just a few weeks away, Americans will be on the move again.

But the traffic jams, crowded airports, extra expenses and delays that often come with traveling during peak season do not have to cause frustration or stress. With all the travel apps available for the Apple (AAPL - Get Report) iPhone 5, planning ahead and managing travel hiccups has never been so easy.

"The on-the-go convenience of smartphones has facilitated their emergence as an essential companion for travelers," said Mark Donovan, comScore senior vice president of mobile, in a report on smartphone activity between December and February 2011. "We all know how hectic a travel experience can be, but smartphones have really stepped in to meet a variety of needs for travelers, such as coordination of schedules, locations, trip itineraries and transactions. With more than half of all smartphone users now engaging with travel content, there has never been a better opportunity for suppliers and OTAs (Online Travel Agents) to invest in their mobile strategies to provide a great experience and win loyalty from their customers."

TheStreet recommends downloading these five apps to ensure a smooth and sweet holiday escape:
