Apps have quickly become one of the best ways to save money and time on traveling. They can provide us with services that we would otherwise have to pay for, as well as save us time from finding a service or product.
I've used iPhone apps during all of my travels. Whether it to be an app to save me money, time, or translate languages, I've used almost every app to make my trip more enjoyable.
There are millions of apps to choose from, (seriously, millions), so it can get a bit overwhelming to find out which app is worth downloading.
Below are the top apps I recommend during your travels, whether it be a domestic or international trip. Enjoy!
Compare hotels, flights, and car rental deals among several service providers all through Kayak to ensure you get the best deal on your stay. It's free for all users and is a great service for any trip.
Mint allows you to connect your bank and credit accounts to figure out where all of your money is going. You can set a budget in place for food, drinks, gas, makeup, or whatever you'd like to save money on.
Find out where bathrooms are that don't require a fee. I wish I would've known about this in Europe or South America!
Get self-guided walking tours that provide you with information on famous landmarks, as well as tips from the experts and locals. There are self-guided tours of cities all around the world. I used this app when I was in Tokyo!
Find out where to get free WiFi when you're abroad.
Compare hostels on Hostel World from around the world by price, ratings, reviews, features, and more. The site is incredibly user-friendly. I've used it myself several times while I was backpacking in Europe.
Hopper predicts when is the best time financially to fly to a destination. You'll receive notifications when a cheap flight comes available, or when they predict the price will increase.
GasBuddy will tell you where to get gas in your area for the cheapest amount possible. Out of all of the gas-saving apps, GasBuddy is the most user-friendly.
Apps on both the iPhone and Android have proven to be helpful and make traveling a lot easier and stress-free when used properly.
