If Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano dumped liquid hot magma on your travel plans, Lonely Planet has some good news for you. For a short time, the popular travel guide is offering 13 of its city guides for free in the App Store.

Typically priced at between $10 and $20 in the App Store, Lonely Planet’s temporarily free guides aim to offer at least a little solace to stranded travellers.

“Travellers stuck in unfamiliar places need access to practical information as well as suggestions on what to do while stranded,” said Tom Hall, Lonely Planet travel editor, in a press release.

The free guide cities are: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Budapest, Copenhagen, Istanbul, London, Moscow, Munich, Paris, Rome, Stockholm, and Vienna.

Of course, these aren’t limited to those actually stranded by the volcano, so everyone can get the apps for free. They are only free until 22 April, though, so go to the App Store and start downloading.
