Best Travel Apps for an Organized Holiday Trip

2

Everyone enjoys a good vacation, but that can easily turn hazardous if you get 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.

Luckily for us, 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 apps. So without further wait, check out the best travel apps:

Tripit

Tripit is a must-have travel app for anyone looking to keep their travel plans organised in a single and easy-to-maintain space. You simply forward all of your confirmation emails for flights, hotels, etc. to plans@tripit.com and the app automatically compiles a detailed outline of your trip. You will also have access to handy features such as detailed maps of your destinations, and you can even access your trip plans when you are not online. To put your trip together in a simple way, Tripit is a must have.

FoodSpotting

No travel guide is complete without mouth-watering food. For this purpose we recommend FoodSpotting; an app that combines the best of both Foursquare and Instagram. You take pictures of your dishes and upload them to the app complete with a review and the restaurant you ate at. You can then see reviews from anywhere; just by searching for the type of food you want. FoodSpotting is different from other food guides out there because it focuses on particular dishes rather than restaurants as a whole. So rather than searching for Chinese restaurants, you would instead look for the best General Tso’s chicken. This traveling app is specifically for those who are traveling abroad with an appetite.

HostelWorld

For those of you who are a serious case of wanderlust, HostelWorld is the app for you. Collaborating with over 35,000 locations around the world, HostelWorld gives you the power to book a bed or room at a moment’s notice. The app also doesn’t burden you with hidden costs or fees. You can also access your account to get reminders about reservations, as well as view hostel locations on an interactive map. The chronic traveller definitely needs this one.

Packing Pro

Packing Pro is a great travel app for anyone who is a packing perfectionist. It is also great for people like me who often forget things when they are packing (mostly due to last minute packing). Packing Pro allows you to create detailed lists to-follow while you pack. It’s more than just a list, though, Packing Pro allows you to add in images, reminders, and even a Need-To-Buy list. You can also email your packing lists to other people (for you micro-managers out there) as well as print them off through the app. Don’t let yourself (or anyone else for that matter) forget something on a trip again with this handy travel companion.

WandrShop

Of course, what is an international vacation without a little shopping? For those of you who are looking to bring back a souvenir or two, WandrShop is the app for you. This little app allows you to find local stores and specialty shops. The app also gives you important info like the store’s address and hours of operation. If you want to save yourself some time and energy, you can also save the stores you want to visit so you don’t have to look for them again. You can also get reviews and tips from other users who have already visited the store. It’s the best app for those looking to do a little spending on their holiday.

TripAdvisor

TripAdvisor is great for those of you who are looking for an app that can do it all. Find and book hotels, read restaurant reviews and reserve tables, and talk to an enthusiastic community who loves to travel. TripAdvisor does all of this and so much more. By using TripAdvisor, you can search for anything near your location, upload photos and share your own experiences, and even download maps of locations to use offline. TripAdvisor isn’t just recommended for travel enthusiasts; it is the standard for them.

I love FoodSpotting because I think being able to see pictures of the actual food is way more helpful than just reading someone’s review.

I would also add a good navigational app Spyglass. It works great when offline, assuming that you pre-download the maps that you need in advance. It shows your accurate coordinates and your current position on a map, allows to mark locations and waypoints, share your locations with friends and much… Read more »
