So in this post, we are going to list down the 11 best international travel apps. These apps will help you search for or book flights, hotels, car rentals, vacations, cruises etc. So let us begin
Hopper helps you to tracks flight prices and also gives you the periodic updates. The thing which makes this travel app valuable is the level of detail it offers. As it tells whether you should wait to buy your ticket or you should book right now. Also, it tells you the date when the price will likely rise. Hopper also provides you with a commission fee of a few dollars. when you book tickets with them.
This app helps you make the most of a flight delay as this app collect loads of information about the airports and also tells you about the services offered, available Wi-Fi networks, lounges, transit options, and places to eat. I will never mind keeping this app on my phone.
3. Google Trips
Life seems to be impossible without Google products. Google Trips app collate some smart information from all other available services and convert it into a little travel pack. Based on the flight information which you’ve saved in your Calendar App, Google Trips will guess the destination where you’re going and also when you are going to travel. Therefore based on this information, it will help you to focus on websites which you want to visit while you are there.
Airbnb connects you with people having rooms, apartments and other accommodations to rent (including tree houses, trailers, and boats). You can choose a short-time vacation spot or a month-long stay, Airbnb will give you options all around the world.
The iExit app tells you exactly what is near the next highway exit, simply from gas stations, restaurants to ATMs. If there’s any particular restaurant chain or any specific service you are looking for, you can mark it in favorite and this app will tell you whenever it will be on your route.
I call this app a life saver for travelers particularly because it has depth reviews of hotels, restaurants, and sites to see. You can watch photos uploaded by other users to get an unbiased point of view. There are millions of users of these apps so you will find reviews for most of the hotels, sites etc.
AH! who can forget this app, nowadays where ever you go in the world you will find the uber services for you. Uber app removes the need of carrying local currency with you, speak the same language as your driver, and know local customs for tipping and haggling. Uber charges your credit/Debit card the right amount thatswhy you don’t have to worry about charges.
8. XE Currency
International travelers need this app badly, I don’t think I need to give reasons for this. XE Currency is nothing special, it works on most of the platforms out there, updates automatically, and also gives you currency conversions even when your phone is offline. The only demerit is that it contains Ads, but they are not that disturbing.
9. Google Maps
Google Maps is regarded as the best navigation app available out there. As it offers you directions for travel by any mode of the vehicle whether it be a car, or public transit, on foot, by cab, or even a bicycle. It is fairly reliable in most of the countries, and you can also download specific areas for using them offline. Google Maps can even be used for finding out places like museums or restaurants timings and also one can check how busy a place is at that moment.
10. Mobile Passport
Yes, it seems to be silly but believe me, it may prove to be a lifesaver for you. If you are traveling to the U.S.A, then Mobile Passport helps you in skipping the regular lines to enter the country and also it is officially authorized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection so all you need to skip long lines is to download Mobile Passport in your smartphone and add your passport information. You can do this quickly by scanning your passport with your phone’s camera. Mobile Passport is accepted at almost 24 airports in the U.S.A.
11. Google Translate
Google Translate remains the best app ever for travelers especially when you don’t know the local language. This app provides you with translations between more than 100 different languages, also you can listen to translations out loud and can translate dictation. You can also download some languages for offline access, which makes your life more simpler even if you are in a location without internet.
