After Smartphone came in the market, it completely changed the way of travel. There are location updates, map guide, food finding app, hotel booking, flight booking and many more. No matter, where you’re traveling, your Smartphone always takes good care of you.
Planning a trip can be difficult but in 2019 there are numbers of free travel apps are available I mean a lot. I have a bit of thing of always wanting to find the easiest and quickest way of doing thing with less amount of effort.
Who needs travel agent if you have the best app in your Smartphone which not deliver information but also give advice, key insight, tips, and warning. So you can easily find the cheapest hotel or flight, best food, best place and many more for your favorite destination.
I have tested lots of travel apps along with some great advice from my fellow travel blogger and compiled the list of top 10 free travel apps which makes your life easier:
Generally, when you’re visiting any foreign destination then it is impossible to convince any landlord to let you rent a place. After that you have only 2 options left one is the hotel and another is hostels.
Hotels can pretty much set your money on fire if you’re financially strong that it’s ok. But if you take my advice than you don’t need to spend in the hotel.
On the other side, Hostels are completely opposite, they are pretty much affordable but you need to compromise with your privacy and there is lots of risk as well.
But Airnub can help you to find rooms, apartments, home and other unique places to rent including boats, tree house and trailers. It is very simple and cost-effective way to find a place for rent at your favorite destination. Whether you need short term vacation spot or month long spot Airnub has all option at all around the world.
Airnub has 2.5 million homes across over 190 countries and for some location, you can add tours, classes, workshops and other interesting stuff.
Skyscanner is one of my favorite travel apps to provide flight assistance.
If you’re looking for cheap flights, hotels and rental cars than Skyscanner is a perfect platform for you. It allows you to “Search everywhere” “Cheapest month”.
By search everywhere you’ll get all flight in cheapest to most expensive price for your destination. It provides data on almost all airlines in the world so that you can compare price and condition for the same route.
By cheapest month travelers will get all details on the basis of a month and you can choose the cheapest dates to fly. And the best part is that you can use both features at the same time so that you can book the cheapest flight.
Another feature of Skyscanner that will excite you is price alerts. You will notify whenever any fluctuations in price.
Tripit is one of the best travel planner apps which store all your travel plans in a well-organized itinerary, far better from your paperwork or notes.
All you have to do is forward all of your detail like flight, hotel, rental car, restaurant etc. to an email address and it will automatically integrate all your itinerary into a single spot so that you can easily view all upcoming plants at once.
If you want it will update your calendar with your trip details and also share your trip with your family or friends so they don’t worry about where you are.
There is paid pro version also available which send you the real-time notification about your flight status, send alternation in case of flight cancelation or when your favorite seat is available on the flight.
If you stuck somewhere where your data connection in not working and you have to urgently browse something or send any message than Wifi map will help you to find a nearest free wifi hotspot.
Wifi map is one of my favorite apps and every traveler should have because whenever you’re abroad than most of the time you’ll face internet issue.
It allows you to access free internet when wifi available with wifi password and tips. You can also share wifi with your friends on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and map navigation as well.
Citymapper is one of the best apps to find and use public transportation. You need to enter your current and destination location and it brings the best option to reach out there with estimated time and cost.
It connects with a few ridesharing services which show you the fastest route to reach out at your destination and also you can check subway and train schedule offline. You can subscribe for any bus or train then you’ll get the real-time notification.

It is integrated with Uber and other transportation services which allow you to book you Uber ride by this app only.
Now remove the language barrier with Google Translate. The app provides translation in more than 100 different languages and with the help of machine learning, it is more conversational. You need to just tap sound icon then it allows you to listen to translation out loud.
One of the best features of Google Translate is the Camera feature which allows you to translate sign and text. You just need to hold up the camera on a particular sign or text and it translates it for you.
For offline access, you have to star your favorite or repeatable sign or word and also you can download the language pack.
It’s always good to learn some common phrase of the local language of place which you’re going to visit and in this Duolingo will help you.
Duolingo is a funny way to learn a new language, it is like a game or quiz so at the same time you can learn and have some fun.
