by May 13, 2019 0 comments

The travel industry has gone a serious transformation thanks to the rise of smartphones that allow us to quickly find information and share pictures online. According to the media reports, 41 per cent of the business and over 60 per cent of travel arrangements now happen online. Thus, the current travel industry faces multiple challenges to not only meet customers’ needs in person but also on the web. While there are plenty of travel apps available, here we bring you best travel apps that you can use to book everything from hotels to last minute flight changes to hitting the road and have that majestic experience.

Google Trips (Available on iOS and Android)

Google Trips has the advantage of having the largest search base at its core and gives many apps a run for their money. Offering customised tours, maps, guides and popping up information from restaurants and/or monuments that are close to your hotel, Google Trips is the best travel app you can have. The app collects all the travel information from your Gmail account, and stores it offline so you can access to it, if you are out on a remote area with limited or no internet connectivity of without Wi-Fi. The app offers complete day guides in more than 200 major cities.

Just fill your destination and click on Things to Do, and the app offers a wide range of categories — from top spots, kid friendly things to the niche art destinations, parks and gardens. You can also save them as lists that include opening hours, addresses, and reviews.

Visit a City (Available on iOS and Android)

Visit a City enters our list of best travel apps as it tries to overcome two big challenges faced by traveller – to figure out how much long you need to spend at each place, and then maximising your vacation time by grouping nearby attractions together. After you have selected your destination, the app offers best sightseeing guides depending on the number of days you plan to spend. The app provides detailed itineraries and other important bits of information that makes planning a lot easier. The app automatically pops up nearby attractions together and tell you how much time will it take to reach there, for instance, ‘five minutes by walking.’

You can also edit the itinerary by changing the day you visit a place and revising the amount of time you spend there. The app also allows you to book tours and also recommends best time of year to visit or tips for saving money.

Tripit (Available on iOS and Android)

TripIt considered as one of the best travel apps works by organising all your travel itineraries and documents in one place so you don’t have to navigate here and there among different apps before you even get to your destination.

The app connects to your email accounts (multiple accounts are supported), finds and summarise important travel information from confirmation emails. The app offers arrival and departure times, airport terminals, contact numbers for hotels.

TripAdvisor (Available on iOS and Android)

One of the oldest in the industry, TripAdvisor is regarded as the granddaddy of best travel apps. Unlike other travel apps that majorly show information about major cities, TripAdvisor recommends both top attractions to visit and hidden gems in just about every corner of the earth, along with restaurants, hotels, and vacation rentals.

The app also allows you to customise itineraries by saving the places you’re interested in to the app’s new Trips feature. The app also supports the destination you search with a feed of other users’ trips, photos, videos, reviews, and articles about that destination, all offering ideas and inspiration.

Roadtrippers (Available on iOS and Android)

Roadtrippers is another helpful travel companion that helps you plan your next road trip, discovering destinations, attractions, and other useful stops along the way. The app allows you to share your route and schedule it with friends and family.

Luckily, travel apps come to the rescue. Above is the selection of best travel apps that ensures sure your next trip goes off without a glitch.
