Planning your trip to go overseas but have no idea where to start? Now, these apps have you covered! They can even make the decision of your best holiday destination easier by giving you information on the best attractions, basic prices and full-on reviews on places around the world.

It's difficult to think of a time before apps were there to save our asses! From organising documents to finding to cheapest flights, these are the best travel apps!

  1. Evernote – This app lets you send information regarding hotel prices, tourist attractions and flight information via email. Notes can be kept on Evernote in photo, text or audio for offline access – keeping a copy of your passport on hand at all times is extremely important in case the worst scenario happens.

    If you are in an area with small street-side shops or hidden attractions and you want to remember to come back, adding a note will also store a geolocation which saves a point on the map for you.


  2. Skyscanner – Booking flight is always a nerve wrecking experience because if you make a mistake, you will ultimately pay the price of countless hours on the phone trying to change details.

    Skyscanner allows you to do this all in one place and search for flights on a flexible basis. It allows you to book the cheapest flights and makes it easy for those who are coming back a different route. Skyscanner connect you directly to the airline's website to fill in the details.


  3. Hotel Tonight – It happens all too often when we travel to places and end up falling in love with a particular city – spending a couple of days there is just not enough.

    The only solution is to extend your stay but last minute bookings can be tricky. This is where Hotel Tonight comes to the rescue. It allows you to search for hotels on the day and the next couple of days making last-minute arrangements less stressful.


  4. Fancy Hands – Although this app isn't specifically for travel, it could still turn out to be your best friend if you are trying to organise an overseas trip in-between a busy schedule. The app allows you to submit tasks via email, text or audio which is then completed by Fancy Hands assistants who are allocated a 20 minute time limit.

    The assistants are able to make phone calls on your behalf and purchase things on your card to assist you in trip research, reporting delays, finding alternative routes and buying tickets.


  5. Pocket – Knowing as much as possible about where you will be holidaying is important so that you know what to expect. Reading articles about the culture of the country and other people's experience is vital but also chews through a lot of data. Pocket allows you to enter the URL of the specific article or web page to store it. You will then be able to access the app and read these articles offline.


  6. Sleepstream – Being jetlagged is a pain in the ass. You arrive at 6am raring to go and explore a new country but you feel like a truck ran over you at the same time. It wastes the precious, limited time you have on your trip. The only solution is to sleep on the plane and Sleepsteam helps you do just that by playing relaxing soundtracks to drown out the sounds of crying babies and noisy passengers.

    The soundtracks can also be set to a timer to prevent your battery from being completely drained.


  7. Lastly, and probably the most obvious, is Google Maps. In a large city where you have to walk everywhere and basically every street looks the same, Google maps will become your saviour! If you did your research beforehand and feel like trying that exotic restaurant everyone recommended, all you have to do is put the name in Google – which is especially useful if everything is in another language – plus, it caters for car, bus and walking.

    Google translate is also a fantastic addition and totally worth spending some extra data on, especially if the language is something completely unrecognisable like Cantonese. There will always be people around that do speak at least some English but, if you find yourself stuck in a situation where speaking is futile, simply type in what you want to say.

    Although it's not ideal, people can generally make out what you are trying to ask and they can type out their reply. It isn't the most polite way of communicating with locals but you gotta do what you gotta do!

 

And there you have it. Happy travels!
