I know there are so many apps on the market that it can be super overwhelming. I for one always check out new apps and ask for recommendations, then I download them check them out and delete them or let them use my phone space. I don’t know why but I just stick to few good and reliable apps I have and I LOVE them. I will occasionally download few more and check them out if I like them and i know i will use them in the future i will leave them. I am not a super savvy tech traveller and I do most of my work on my laptop rather than on a phone so i limit myself to the ones i will use.
Here are my top 5 apps that I love & recommend
I love this app as it shows you all the flights by country and any destination you want. I think this is a super cool way to find cheap deals for any country really. I will usually open Skyscanner first and then check the rest of the websites. Their best feature is the country to everywhere search, I just wish they had this for business class as well.
I have written about Uber before. The on request travel app that you can use and order yourself a nice car instead of a cab. I love to use Uber in places I visit due to the fact that it is super easy and just a click away. I don’t have to have cash and I don’t have to worry if I get lost while exploring a new city. I know that If I walk too far away from my hotel in an unfamiliar area I can order an Uber to drive me back safely. Plus not carrying cash for a taxi and just paying via the app is excellent because I don’t have to worry about having extra cash on me for this purpose or trying to find a cash point. The only negative is that you do need to have wi-fi abroad to use the app, however there are plenty of spots with free wi-fi that you can use nowadays.
