My Top Ten Apps for Travelling

Picture from Marketing Land

As my trip date is approaching I thought it was a good idea to share with you which are my Top Ten Apps for travelling. Nowadays, we all make the most of our smartphones and apps can help us in many ways, especially while travelling because sometimes we don't carry our computers with us. So let's get into the list:

Trip Case

I have downloaded this app after it was recommended by my favourite travel blogger Sir Chandler. This app is perfect for organizing your trip and have all the information regarding your flights and hotel reservations together in one place. It's very easy to use, all you have to do is forward your booking and flight confirmation emails to Trip Case and they upload all the information directly into the app. Another great thing about this app is that it's linked with the software the airlines use so whenever there is a change in your flight, you will receive a notification from the app. For example, when I was in Paris airport last year, the app notified my that the gate for my flight was changed and it was such a great help!





Booking

For this trip, it was the first time I made reservations via Booking so I have downloaded their app to have all the information about my hostel reservations and found out their app offers a lot more. For example they provided me with free city guides that I can download and see offline, with restaurant recommendations near my hostels and also good information regarding things to see in the city with maps, which is also very useful.





Google Maps

It's key to have a good map application to check all the places you want to see in the city you're travelling to. In this case Google Maps has a lot of useful information regarding the public transportation and you have the possibility to save the routes to the places you want to go to and then check them offline.

Dropbox 

This app is key to make back ups of your travel photos and videos. 

Google Photos

If Dropbox is not enought to back up your photos :P I haven't tried this one yet but I'm sure I'm going to use it in my trip.

Spotify

I love listening to music while travelling, so Spotify is a very important app for me. I love creating new playlists for each city and as I have the Premium version I can download all the songs I want and then play them offline. In case you want to follow me at Spotify here is my profile!

VSCO Cam

To edit all of the pictures so that they are Instagram perfect :)

Google Translate

As this is the first time I will be travelling to a place I have no idea about their language I though it was a good idea to download Google Translate just in case.

Global Blue

Their app offers offline maps for all the stores that are enrolled into their tax free program and also they have a calculator for you to check how much your tax free discount is going to be, which could be quite useful if you're planning to shop a lot :)

Snapchat

Because there's nothing as fun as recording all your travel experience and share it with your friends via Snapchat :) Remember to follow me on Snapchat @seizeyourstyle




Well, those are my top ten apps for travelling, I hope this was useful for you and in case you have any other great app that I didn't include in this list, leave it in the comments, I would love to know :)
