Changes in travel technology?

Jump to last reply

I have not been to Europe since 2009 and I wonder what has changed in terms of travel tech, particularly in Switzerland.

Phones -- I used to use calling cards because they were cheap, phone booths were ubiquitous, and it was no big deal if they were lost or stolen. Are smart phones the way to go these days or some manner of pay-as-you-go phone? Or are phone cards still viable? I don't need to be hyper-connected while I'm vacation.

Guide books -- Do the major guidebooks come in electronic form for smart phones or tablets?

Air travel -- Do I still have to take a plane to Europe or have transporters been invented yet?

Thanks!
