10 TRAVEL APPS YOU MUST HAVE
In this age, mobile apps are changing the way you travel, from helping you shave time and money off your next journey to helping you pack for your getaway. Here are my top ten travel apps you must have. No traveler should leave home without these apps! They’re just one download away from making your next trip easy going.
(travel organizer and planner)
It helps you to organize and plan any kind of group activity. You can easily create and share itineraries with
your friends and family for more efficient planning and travel. My favorite feature about this app is that it lets you pitch in your share of money for the event without any hassles. How cool is that!?
This app lets you create a master itinerary of flights, hotels, tours etc. for every trip for instant access to all your travel plans at one place. It keeps track of every detail and lets you share your plans with friends and family, too. And its free!
The ad-free pro version has some amazing features such as real-time flight tracker, VIP travel benefits and a lot more for $4.09/month (free trial for first 30 days).
AroundMe uses your location to search for the nearest restaurants, banks, gas stations, hospital and pretty much any local information. It also lets you book hotels or find a movie schedule nearby. This travel app comes in very handy when you’re traveling to a city for the first time. According to me, AroundMe is one of the most important travel apps you must have!
This ultimate packing app will organize and make a list of what you need to pack for your trip – making packing a lot easier. It makes a custom list of items based on the length of your trip, activities planned by you during the trip, nature of the trip, and also the weather at your destination! This is one of the travel apps you must have if you don’t want to forget anything on your next trip.
(hotel booking app)
Urgently looking for a hotel to stay at? This is where Hotel Tonight comes in – it lets you book some of the top-rated hotels in dozens of cities around the world at heavily discounted rates for one night.
Using this travel app you can download the city guide and maps of the city of interest, and once you have, the information gets stored and you can access it anytime without having to connect your phone to the internet.
7. XE Currency
(currency conversion app)
Want to compare prices in the local currency to what you’d pay at home? XE currency has got you covered! It also downloads and stores currency rates, so you don’t have to worry about being connected to the internet to use this app while abroad.
Besides tracking flights in real-time, FlightView also provides you with a lot of useful information including weather, gates, terminal info, baggage claim info, and more! You can also receive notification alerts of flight delays and status changes – useful for both travelers, and the one who is going to pick you up at the airport.
This amazing app allows you to privately share your photos with your friends and family back home. The app just not only creates a travel journal by collecting the photos and sharing them, but also plotting them on map.
This offline map app does not only offer city maps, it even gives you access to maps of national parks, theme parks, museums, and a lot more! You can download these maps when you have internet connection for when you don’t and access the information anytime.
