Best Apps to travel with

Take the stress and worry out of travelling. Ensure you’re always one step ahead with these inventive travel apps.

Thankfully, technology helps to make our lives easier and more enjoyable. We’ve discovered the best five travel apps to download to help you have the best vacation ever, without worrying about a thing.

1. CityMapper

CityMapper is one of the rare travel apps that thinks about the environment. When you’re in a new place, you don’t always know your way around, and this will guide you. It’s built for people who use public transport, walk or cycle.

Currently, it covers 39 cities around the world with routes that are much better than Google Maps.

2. Airbnb

Anyone who loves to travel knows how expensive and inconvenient it can be to book a last-minute hotel. Airbnb is an excellent service which isn’t just limited to accommodation. Not everyone knows that this app also tells you about upcoming walking tours, cooking classes, and activities and adventures in your chosen city.

3. Skyscanner

This is one of our favourite travel apps for finding affordable flights, hotels and rental cars. It covers you for virtually every holiday essential you could require. Simply search where you’re looking to head, and the days, and it’ll provide you with a quote.

4. Uber

Did you know that Uber is now active in 84 countries and 737 cities around the world? The app is an on-demand service which comes in handy when you’re abroad. Request a car directly to you to help you get around safely and cheaply. You don’t need cash, and can pay from your Uber account, which is great if you’re uncomfortable with foreign currency.

5. PackPoint

This is one of the rare travel apps available to tourists. This app looks at the weather forecast and the location of your trip to help you pack your essentials. How many times have you arrived at your destination to discover that you’ve forgotten something? PackPoint has saved checklists to help you pack everything you need, without having to think.
