With the snow stranding travellers all over Europe, Lonely Planet has decided to make thirteen of its iPhone city guides free until December 23.
Company spokesperson Tom Hall said: “We know that travelers who might be stuck in unfamiliar places over Christmas will need access to practical information as well as suggestions on what to do while they’re stranded.”
With that in mind Lonely Planet is offering free guides for Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dublin, London, Moscow, Munich, Paris, Prague, St Petersburg, Stockholm, Vienna and Warsaw.
The apps are all available on the iTunes app store and can be downloaded to any iPhone with internet connectivity. Lonely Planet is hoping the offer of free apps might go some way to brightening Christmases that would otherwise have been spent waiting in an airport.
