There’s no doubt about it, travel apps make travelling that little bit easier and helps keep you connected to home and informed about the latest travel information. Keep peace of mind in your pocket by downloading the best travel apps before your trip so you can get help if you need it. If you plan to travel around Europe this summer, apply for your European Health Insurance Card here: europeanhealthinsurancecard.org.uk. Before you jet off into the sun, make sure you download the our travel app suggestions below:
There’s no longer need to download a number of individual airport or airline apps for a number of flight. Save your storage and download FlightAware. FlightAware allows you to track any flight in real-time. It also provides updates and enables you to see delays. You can even set up flight alerts to make sure you arrive on time!
We can guarantee you’ve heard of Google Translate, but have you go the app? We’ve all used it online at one point in our lives, whether it be on the streets abroad or to support your homework but thanks to advances in technology you can now take a photo of the text you want translated to receive an instant translation to any language!
Tired of keeping track of booking references? TripIt allows you to store and access them in one place! If you allow the app to access your email inbox, it will scan it for any existing booking numbers and add it to your itinerary for you, so you don’t need to worry!
AroundMe is an app anyone can enjoy. The app will identify your location and find all kinds of fun activities, restaurants and bars near to you. From finding the closest hospital, hotel, cinema or supermarket, this app does it all for you!
Ever been caught short? When you have to go, you just have to! Finding an available public toilet abroad is even harder than finding one at home. To use flush, all you need to do is enable your GPS and like magic you’ll be directed to the nearest public toilet.
Rome 2 Rio
The cost of public transport varies place to place which is why Rome 2 Rio is a great app to give you an accurate indication of the cost and the length of public transport available to you to help you get from A to B.
Maps.me is one of the best travelling apps available to download! There’s nothing worse (or more panic inducing) than travelling abroad and getting lost. Googling your way out can be costly, which is why Maps.me is a great alternative. Essentially, Maps.me is an offline map so you don’t need to worry about your data costs, but remember to download the maps before you go otherwise you’ll need to connect abroad.
Why not learn a little bit of the local lingo to help you abroad? More than 70 million people have downloaded the Duolingo app to help them learn the basics or to top up their vocabulary before they step foot elsewhere. You’ll need to complete a series of fun and interactive levels before you can advance further. Not only is the app free, it’s suitable for both iOS and Android devices, making learning a new language easy!
