Here’s All You Need to Know about the Best Travel Apps Out There

The great thing about traveling is the opportunity to see more of the world, relax and get important stuff ticked off your list. However, that doesn’t mean the process will be all rainbows and sunshine. In fact, if you’ve traveled enough, you’ll probably be familiar with delays, loss of personal belongings, booking miscommunication, and plenty of other hair-pulling scenarios. Luckily for us though, there are plenty of travel apps these days to ease our journey and bring the fun back into traveling, and we’ve got them all here for you:

1. Airbnb

It’s by far one of the most successful accommodation booking apps ever, and it doesn’t even cater to hotel lovers. Choose from a wide range of “hosted” homes all around the world. Their amazing “filter” system allows you to choose exactly what you would prefer, and in return, you’ll get to explore and live in amazing rooms and homes during your travels. Now, isn’t that an amazing app to have?
Available on both iOS and Android.

2. Google Translate

Most of us are only able to speak one to two languages fluently, but that shouldn’t stop you from exploring the world and its amazing finds. It’s understandable that the inability to speak or comprehend another language can be an obstacle while traveling. This is where Google Translate comes in handy. Just type in your text or take a picture of an image with text and watch the magic as comprehension starts flowing through.   
Available on both iOS and Android.

3. Skyscanner

Nowadays, customer loyalty is fast dying out, and most people are focusing on getting the best deals there is out there. This is where Skyscanner comes in. With their powerful search engine, the app is able to scan and search millions of airlines worldwide in order to give you the best options. If you’re also looking for sweet hotel and car rental deals, you can find it all in their powerful app.

4. TripIt

Just imagine having a personal assistant with you 24-7 that you can easily depend on for updates, plans, and organizing your trips. In case you haven’t caught on yet, we’re talking about TripIt.

Available on both iOS and Android.

5. LoungeBuddy

If you’ve been to one airport, you’ve probably been to all airports (figuratively). After all, their comforts are usually reserved for the plane and their lounges, and it’s not entirely the most accessible airport feature. With LoungeBuddy, you’ll get to check and verify any airport lounge around the world, and also determine your eligibility for it. If you’re not into memberships of that sort, you might even luck out if day-passes are acceptable.
Available on iOS only.

6. Mobile Passport (Only for U.S. Travelers)

Tired of filling up those declaration forms to enter the U.S.? Well, you’re not alone, which is why you’ll probably want to get your hands-on Mobile Passport from now on. All you’ll need to do is create your profile, answer the relevant protocol questions and send it to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and you’ll instantly receive an encrypted barcode to scan when you land.
Available on both iOS and Android.
