Everyone enjoys a good vacation, but that can easily turn hazardous if you lose your way, pick out a bad restaurant or don’t properly plan.
This is especially true for those of us who go on a vacation internationally. With Covid19 pandemic everywhere, flights are regularly getting rescheduled, SOPs are changing and things are generally a little more unpredictable than before.
We know vacations are important and travelling is great for mental health. So we are all in favour of it, but we need assistance more than ever (now especially)
There are a ton of travel apps out there designed to make planning these vacations easier. Here is a list of the most essential of such travel apps.
