Most Useful Travel Apps

What did we do in the age before smartphones?

The planning stages of your trip are as, if not more, important than the trip itself, but luckily there are tons of apps to help you out!

Never put this one to the test, but have heard major raves about it, basically you stay with a local in their home.

#6 airbnb

In case you’re not into slumming it, this app lets you browse houses and apartments worldwide for rent, whether it’s for yourself or a group of friends  

#7 XE currency

Very very useful if you don’t know what the local currency is in your home country currency…. save yourself a dollar or two by knowing the conversion.

#8 Lonely Planet city guides

I’m a huge lonely planet supporter, I always buy the guidebooks when planning a trip for whatever country it is, call me silly but I like having the hard copy guides. This handy little app is useful for on the road though, giving you city guides to download right on your phone.

#9 Uber

You guys know how it works, book a car, get where you’re going.

#10 AllTrails

For the outdoors person, trail maps for hikers, backpackers, and mountain bikers. With ratings on difficulty levels, and ratings by other hikers.

 

What apps do you guys use the most?

Thanks for reading, have a wonderful week.
