To travel is to get lost! But sometimes, you’ll need a hand to find yourself. That’s why we put together a list of the best apps for a Round-the-World Traveller. Check them out:
- XE Currency
When you are travelling to a new country and need to keep tabs of what are you spending, it’s handy to keep this great app around. You can add up to 10 currencies on the screen and it loads all the latest conversions when online, so you can have them available when you are offline. Free for iPhone & Android.
Walking around with a paper map is so yesterday! Download this powerful app to have access to all maps, everywhere in the world. You don’t need internet to use it and you can get directions to addresses/places as you would on Google Maps. Free download for iPhone & Android.
You probably used it already on your desktop, but having the app is so handy when you are on the go. Check for best places to go according to thousands of reviews or look up to accomodation and attractions all over the world. Plus, the mobile app now also offers a super cool timeline of all your activities and places you’ve visited while using the app (it’s also private, so it won’t be sharing with anyone).
- Google Drive
Keep all your documents, photos and important info in one safe place when you travel. Even if you lost your mobile, data or computer, you still have all the important stuff with you. On the cloud. Free for iPhone & Android.
Keep all your bookings like flights and accommodation in one place. Log into TripIt and let it do the rest. It will sync all the bookings you’ve made and show you an alert to make sure you don’t miss anything. Free fro iPhone & Android.
- Google Translate
Sometimes, words get lost in translation and having a translator in hand can be very helpful. The mobile app is great. Comprehensive and with more than 90 languages and even packs for download and use offline. Plus, it’s free.
