Favorite Travel Apps

When it comes to traveling, accessibility it key. Below I’ve listed my favorite travel apps (so far) that I always use when I’m preparing or on vacation.

  1. Skyscanner: You can use this when it comes to finding flight deals. It can tell you when the cheapest time/month is to fly to a certain destination. Now if you have no destination in mind, but you have certain dates you prefer, when filling in the TO section, put in everywhere and it will give you a bunch of options. You can also set up a price watch for when the flight decreases or increases in price.
  2. MobilePass: This is great for if you do not have global entry. It’s only used for traveling in/out of the country. The only downside is, not every country is using it. You can either fill in the information/photo once you land at your destination or you can pay a fee for it and it will save all your info for you so once you land, you’re ready to go.
  3. Your airline: Whatever airline you have, more than likely they have an app. It can have easy access for boarding passes, flight reminders if you’re delayed, change seat assignment, and for some airlines, your entrainment is within the app as well (for watching movies/shows).
  4. Google Maps: Google Maps is a godsend and I use it every time I need some form of direction for whatever city I’m in. I use it a lot for the train/subway or using it to search for restaurants along the way during road trips.
  5. Google Translate: Sometimes when traveling, you may not know the language and at times it can stress you out if you aren’t able to communicate. They have more than 100 languages. All you have to do is download your desired language (before you trip) and when you’re ready just hover the camera over the desired language you want to translate.
  6. Yelp: I’m big on reviews when it comes to finding a restaurant. Some people have recommendations on what to try and people just share their honest review.
  7. Lyft: I usually use this ridesharing app if I’m in a city because I don’t know about you, but I hate driving around any city. Parking is always a pain or too expensive. All you have to do is request a ride, confirm your pick up and drop off, wait for the driver to arrive, and then get to your destination. Oh, and approve the amount.
  8. WhatsApp: This is a messaging system that is best used when traveling outside of the country. It’s pretty similar to iMessage, just download it before your trip and add your family and friends on it.
  9. Hopper: This app is more for price watching. You just need to put in your destination and a color coded calendar will pop up. It will then tell you the cheapest and most expensive dates to fly. You can also set up an alert for when the price drops.
  10. Kayak: I use this app to get price comparisons for hotels. It searches some of the more popular websites and it will show you the break down for each one.
