Mobile apps have revolutionized everyday life. From hobbies like fitness, and baking, to entertainment apps like games, and can’t forget utilities like GPS and calculators – apps have become a key element for our society. What we personally love about apps is that it makes our lives a lot more simpler, organized, and minimal. Being travel bugs, we take heavy advantage of apps that make planning our trips easier and apply resources that make traveling and booking quicker. Here are five of our favorite apps to use for travel for FREE!

1. SKYSCANNER

Save money with SkyScanner! First thing in planning a trip is to search for tickets; search thousands of airlines for the cheapest fares. On the go and great for change of plans, SkyScanner allows flexibility in changing flights and destinations.

2. TRIPIT

If you’re forgetful or too busy to follow up with your flights, TripIt is your personally flight assistant. TripIt syncs with your emails and sends you notifications if your flight is delayed or cancelled. It also assists in creating your daily itinerary. We used TripIt during our Seattle Trip and Alaska Cruise.

3. YELP

Probably the most used app by both Mary and I. We use this on a weekly basis. Yelp is the best (personal opinion) app when searching for local entertainment, food, or activity. Users can write a review of their own experience and helps you locate (requires data usage) the event if unfamiliar with the area.

4. TRIPOSO

No service? No map? No problem! Triposo is free map app that also works offline. Download city or country guides for more than 27,000 destinations. Just like City Maps 2 Go, it also provides travel tips, informative content, and popular places.

5. GOOGLE TRANSLATE

Traveling abroad can be unenjoyable if you have difficulty understanding the countries you’re visiting languages. Google Translate helps break that language barrier. It’s an easy to use translation app that comes in handy when asking for directions, food locations, and most importantly the latrine (restroom). You can also take a picture of the words and it can translate it into your own language!
