We all have our favourite apps for when in our hometown, but which ones are you downloading for when you’re on holiday? We’ve tried and tested many apps but here are our five must-have free apps that work on your smartphone.
PackPoint is an intelligent packing list builder for travellers. The app will tell you what you need to pack based on length of travel, the weather at your upcoming destination, and any activities you've planned during your trip.
Google Trips makes it easier for you to plan and organize your trips. The app automatically maps out half a day or a full day of suggestions on what to see and do. By tapping the "magic wand" the app gives you a set of nearby attractions.
Citymapper offers public transport and walking routes to get you from destination A to B. The free app gives you real-time information, multiple routes, and updates on when the next bus or train will arrive. The app is simple to use and you can set up alerts to get a notification in case of any delays.
You can use Citymapper in Paris, Milan, Copenhagen, Brussels, Lyon, Berlin, Barcelona, Lisbon, Stockholm, Madrid, and Rome.
We love Citymapper - but as one of our travellers Catherine let us know... sometimes you need an alternative. Enter Moovit - covering way more destinations. It might just be your best friend when you're off the beaten track.
We're sure everyone and their dog has used Google translate once in their life. This free service instantly translates words, phrases, and web pages between English and over 100 other languages.
When you’re travelling, you’re likely going to be taking lots of pictures to share on the 'gram. We highly recommend the easy to use VSCO for all your editing needs.
The ultimate map with free Wi-Fi hotspots anywhere you travel. The best part of this app is you can get WiFi suggestions without a network connection.
