City breaks can benefit from use of technology
Date Posted: 30/06/11
Brits on city breaks have been told that they can get more out of their time away if they make use of technology on offer.
Yolanda Copes-Stepney, destination public relations officer for VisitEngland, said that people seeking weekend adventures now have access to lots of information at their fingertips through today's smartphones.
She added that applications like Enjoy England, which is currently free for iPhone users to download, allows visitors to plan their visits and find ways to save money.
"It can be overwhelming, but with the introduction of mobile internet apps, it means that we can have all of the information on the go and in our hands," she stated.
Ms Copes-Stepney went on to say that the Enjoy England app provides visitors with attraction information, such as opening times and telephone numbers so that they can make the most of their time away from home.
Users of the app can also personalise their search according to indoor or outdoor activities, depending on the weather, while budget and free ideas are also suggested.
