Traveling can be somewhat hectic when you find yourself in an unfamiliar place. However, with booking, mapping, translating and personal travel tracking apps, it’s become much easier. Kayak, Yelp and Google Translate are already very popular and help to meet the every changing needs of travelers but more apps are being created all the time. Here are a few newer and less-known ones you might find useful when planning your next trip:
- Feel like you didn’t have enough time to explore and want to stay one more night? Download, Hotel Tonight, where it shows you hotel rooms for same-day and next-day hotel booking. What’s the best part? It’s user friendly and free!
- Are you all about checking your lists twice to ensure you have covered your tracks? Download PackPoint, a go-to packing app for detail oriented travelers. Put in your destination, length of stay and more, then the app will allow you to check off activities to generate a list of things you may need. Swipe on or off each item as you pack and you won’t forget a thing.
- Sometimes big cities or new places can be overwhelming, but with the help of Citymapper, getting around is made easy! Type in your starting and ending point and the app will generate routes you can take by train, bus, bicycle, foot and taxi. Prices are provided when needed and notifications of out of service transportation routes also show up.
- Do you have a lengthy layover or some extra downtime? Download Pocket, an app that lets you download interesting articles and videos. So, even if you can’t connect to the internet, you can watch or read whatever you please.
