We all need handy apps that provide quick solutions for planning, organising and accessing necessary information while on vacation. Even though many would want to opt for staying away from their smartphones, there is no denying that they are very practical. In our next TravelHacks series we bring you 10 best most useful free travel apps that will transform your smartphones into invaluable companions.
My eVault is an app that enables you to store any kinds of personal inventory and travel documents. Save a copy of your valuable documents like passport, driver’s licence, loyalty cards close to you to be able to access them on any occasion. This app also lets you save the copies of receipts and warranties of purchases you make.
The time, when we were scrambling with troublesome fold-out maps is behind us. Google Maps has it all; this navigation app incorporates the features such as traffic updates, 360-degree street view (in case if the street view is not clear enough) and GPS navigation. No internet data? You can download the maps you need in the hotel you stay or any internet café and use them offline.
TripIt is an ultimate travel planner app. If you booked your flight ticket, hotel stay, car rental or restaurant online, you may simply forward the confirmations to firstname.lastname@example.org and TripIt will do the rest or you! The app will create an itinerary/plan for you, which both will be adjustable online and accessible offline.
If things go terribly wrong on vacation, TravelSmart is a first source to turn to. TravelSmart is an app that provides local emergency numbers and details of the nearest hospitals. Besides, with this app you may also look up the names of drugs and find first aid terms that might be indispensable.
Uber is an app that offers taxi services ‘at the push of a button’. Once you enter the requested details and match with the driver, his photo and details will appear. The payment can also be made via credit card. This service is functioning in 130 cities and 44 countries around the world and might come handy when you are abroad on holiday.
Perhaps speaking some basic local language might be convenient. Yet, sometimes it is rather tricky to express oneself in indigenous language. Thus, iStone Travel Translation app comes to the rescue. The app empowers you to translate sentences and then play them. The difference is that you can do this all while being offline.
When it comes to the attraction and accommodation reviews, there is no doubt that TripAdvisor is the best in practice. The only drawback of the app is that all of the information and reviews may only be accessed using WiFi or internet data.
XE Currency is a basic, yet very user-friendly converter that you will certainly need while on holiday. Trust me, you would not want to convert 5,433,238 Indonesian Rupiah into dollars manually.
