The best travel apps

Travel apps are absolutely the best thing you can take on your travel. It will save you time, money and also find you travel buddies. I made my personal the most used travel apps which I truly believe that it will make your next trip easier.  

Pinterest

Pinterest is a great app and social media platform to find ideas where to travel. It is a place where travel bloggers meet and give advises. You just need to type the city or country where you are heading to and you will get pins like: “the top visited places”, “the most instagrammable places”, “the best advises for traveling”, “the best cafes” and so on. If you have any question about the specific town then you will get the answer there. Especially, if you love to go to a new country without a specific plan or you just killing your time at a train station then it is a great platform for you.

Also, follow me to get my tips of travelling on Pinterest.

Instagram

It is a social media app, but for my travels I use to check the hashtags of the cities to check the most photographed places and to find ideas what should I visit.

VSCO

It is the best photo editing app. Your travel picks will be amazing! Edit, add filters and be ready to share.

Tripadvisor

Usually when I am traveling I also work remotely which means that I need to find some nice, not to crowded, with free WiFi, good coffee, cozy cafe near me where I could work. I’m kinda picky about it. Tripadvisor app shows all cafes at the town and how far it is, you can read reviews, view photos of other visitors, check the prices of the menu and so on. Although, it is the reason why I use this app, but you can also check there hotels, vacation rentals, flights, restaurants and things to do like museums, galleries and everything you can imagine.

Taxify or Uber

These apps are international transportation companies which are way cheaper than local taxi companies. Well, usually. I personally love more Taxify, but before travelling you should check if their services work in that specific country. Also, it is safer that local taxi service, because you can see on the app the rating of the driver and also after your ride you can leave a review about your experience with this driver.

Use my Taxify code to get a free ride: 79WBZ

Booking.com

Booking has a great hotel and hostel rooms reservation system. It is way easier to use Booking app than just to book a room on a hotel’s website. Also, booking has the best rating system, after every room booking you have to rate your experience and write what you liked and disliked.

Airbnb

Airbnb is an accommodation sharing app where you can find extraordinary apartments, rooms for your travel. It is cheaper than to live in a hotel and you have your own place, usually you can find the whole apartment for a reasonable price. Additionally, you can live in a house boat, house in a tree, a space themed apartment, just name it and you will find it on Airbnb.

Use my discount link for $35 discount for your first reservation.

Couchsurfing

Another accommodation app, but this time it is more about meeting people. Here you can find locals who has an empty bed, sofa or even a room and they can let you crash at their place for a night or two. In exchange you can bring a souvenir from your country or make a dinner, breakfast for a host. The only minus and I am talking from my personal experience that with Couchsurfing have also a plan B where you are going to stay for a night, because sometimes hosts just vanishes.

Revolut

It is not only an app, but also a card which made my life easier. On Revolut app you can always keep track of your travel expenses, send money quicker to Revolut users, check the currency of the local money. Also, it has a new feature where you can save a specific amount of money every month, week or day for your travels.

Kiwi

For all my plane tickets I use Kiwi app, because it finds the cheapest and fastest flights wherever I go. I love that it is easy to see the differences of price if you choose a different flight day.

Flixbus

It is a bus service in Europe which is both cheap and super comfortable. The app helps you to buy a ticket easier and you will have your ticket on the app.

Google maps

Well you can’t travel without this app! Also, did you know that you can save your maps and use it offline? Yes, you can. Also, if you are super lost then put your earphones and listen to your directions while looking super confident where you are going.

Check my blog post about how to be safe while travel solo.

Google translate

Trust me you will need to translate something during your trip like signs, instructions and so on.

Travel apps are absolutely the best thing you can take on your travel.
