Heading abroad? Packing a few apps for your phone can make your traveling experience smoother. I have compiled the 5 must have apps to plan every detail of your trip and make the best out your adventures. I will provide an app for every process of planning the trip to make the process easier.
Firstly, you need to book your flights and there is an app for that. Hopper is an app that helps you book your flights. Also, this will help you save money and check out tips to have a fabulous holiday without breaking the bank. As well as it notifies you about the best time to book your travel. The app does all the hard work for you by keeping a lookout for price changes on any chosen destination.
Secondly the next step is “packing” for the trip. Packpoint automatically generates a bespoke packing list for your trip. All you need to do is just enter the destination and date of travel and few details about the things you will be planning on doing. Then it makes a list things to pack based on your preferences and you can further tweak to your desire.
Thirdly, the next step in your adventure is catching the flight and reaching airport on time without having to experience flight delays. If you’re after an app that tracks your flight departures and arrivals, then this app is for you. The app tracks flights by the flight number, airport or route. It also provides the gate number, arrival time and departure time which are updated in real time. It is the best app to see the progress of any flight in a map view.
Fourthly, the next step is navigating in and around the country/city you have arrived to. CityMapper, finds and utilizes public transportation information. It also offers the fastest way to arrive at your destination. The best features are that you can check train timings offline and it will even alert you when you need to get off.
5. Wolfram Sun Exposure
Lastly, this is a health app that is useful while you are outside. It helps you manage your time in the sun safely to avoid burning up and getting cancer in the long run. The app is very detailed and tells you how long you can stay in the sun before getting burned. It even evaluated the amount of sun exposure based on your skin type, the time of day, where you are and the strength of sun cream.
This is very useful app as sometimes we look at the sky and think it is not very sunny but you still burn. In cloudy days, you can still get sun burns as the rays can pass through clouds if it is a hot day. This app will help you never get sunburnt again.
Using all the apps recommended will make you have a easy stress free trip and you can enjoy more. Check out my website for more travel tips http://www.travelweekli.com
