There are no doubts that the internet and the apps made our lives (and our trips) much easier! To help you on your next adventure elsewhere, we’ve prepared a list of 10 apps to use while you’re planning or during your trip! So, while you have Wi-Fi available, download them all and enjoy your holidays!
When planning a trip, Skyscanner comes in handy to compare fares from many different air companies. If you have some flexibility on the dates of the trip, it’s even better: you get to see the lowest estimate price on each day and choose the very best option for your budget!
Omio is a great platform to compare several options of flights, trains and buses from one city to another in Europe, considering prices, timetable and extension of the trip. With this app you will certainly find the transport that better suits your needs!
Of course we always want the best deal when booking accommodation, right? Trivago is here to help us compare prices of hotels in different platforms and pay less for the exact same room and service! Isn’t that great?
TripAdvisor is a great app to check reviews from other travellers about hotels, restaurants, tours and so on! This way you won’t be taken by surprise when you arrive at your accommodation, choose the first restaurant you find or hire a tour on the city!
This app is very helpful to check the tours available on the city you’re going to, compare the several options available and book them in advance, so you can save time on queues (and sometimes also money).
Before packing, it’s better to check the weather forecast, to be sure to take the appropriate clothes for your holidays! It’s also very useful during the trip, to confirm your outfit will be ok for the day before leaving your accommodation.
This app is incredibly handy to organise your itinerary, marking all the places you want to visit, restaurants you want to try and also add your own notes!
Mobile maps made our trips much more practical, and the best part is that we don’t even need to be connected to the internet anymore! Google maps offers the option to download the map of your destination, so you can use it offline later. No excuses to get lost and stressed!
All these apps are very similar, but the prices may vary between them, according to the area or time. So, if you want to save some money, the best option is having all of them on your smartphone, so you can compare the estimated fare for each trip before asking for your ride.
Flickr is very useful during and after your trip, to store your pictures in high quality. You can set it to upload all your new pictures automatically when you’re connected to the Wi-Fi, so you’ll have no risks of losing them in case of any problem. Then, you can organise your pics in albums and either keep them private, share with specific people or with the general public.
Do you use any other app on your trips? Tell us in the comments what are your favourite ones!
Maybe you’re looking to stay in the same city for more than a month? Uniplaces does not have an app (yet), but if you’re looking for a room to rent, a studio or a shared apartment, we can help you out!
