If you haven’t traveled very often in your life, you may feel a little overwhelmed as a big trip approaches. There are a lot of things you need to take off while you travel, so if you’re not used to it, you could be costing yourself extra money and find yourself unprepared once you leave.
There are plenty of apps that can help inexperienced travelers feel like they’ve been jetsetting around the world for years. Some of them can help you save a few bucks so you can have a little more spending money at your destination, while others keep you informed about everything you need to know. Here are a few apps that you should consider if you a newbie traveler.
A Good Booking App
Some of the most popular travel-related apps that you can find are those that help you search the internet for the lowest possible prices on everything from airline tickets to hotels and rental cars.
While all of the different apps have their own unique platform, design and options, they all pretty much do the same thing, so you can try a couple out to see if you like them. Some of the most popular ones are Booking.com, Kayak, Expedia and Trivago. Each of these booking apps lets you choose the dates of your departure and then will search for the best possible prices they can find on all of the flights and accommodations you need.
The apps may show different rates, so you can use several of them at the same time to compare and find the best price possible.
This app is a godsend for anyone who travels to a new city and can’t quite figure out what to do. All you have to do is open the app and see what’s “around you.”
The app will list all of the restaurants, bars, nightclubs, theaters, museums and more that are within a certain distance of you, and tell you exactly how far away they each are. This will give a few instant ideas when you can’t decide on what to do. The app also locates the nearest emergency services like hospitals and police stations, and will show any banks and ATMs in your area.
Weather Live Free
If you’re new to traveling, you may underestimate the importance of knowing the weather wherever you go: storms can delay flights and make you reevaluate plans, so it’s vital that you always know what’s going on.
This weather app by Apalon Apps tells you everything you need to know about the weather and features a constantly updates weather radar that lets you watch any fronts moving in or out of your area. It even has a widget for your homescreen so you don’t even have to open the open to know what the weather has in store for you.
Just because you don’t travel often doesn’t mean you can’t travel like a pro. Try one of these apps next time you’re ready to see the world.
