Free: Lonely Planet iPhone city guides for stranded travellers

In response to the travel chaos caused by Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano, which has covered northwest Europe in a massive cloud of ash, Lonely Planet is offering 13 of its European iPhone city guides free to stranded travellers.

With a lot of travellers stuck in unfamiliar places, these city guides will provide much-needed, practical information as well as suggestions on what to do whilst stranded.

The 13 apps are available for free now until 11.59pm (GMT+12) Thursday 22nd April 2010.

The guides can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store at the links below:

Amsterdam
Barcelona
Berlin
Budapest
Copenhagen
Istanbul
London
Moscow
Munich
Paris
Rome
Stockholm
Vienna

Please share this link with any friends or family who have had their plans affected by this.

Note: If you download the app for free, it is yours to keep. You will not be charged in the future for an app that you have downloaded free.
