Have you ever traveled to a new country or city and wondered where you could find vegetarian or vegan food? Maybe you were looking for a place that at the very least had those options in case your dining buddy isn’t on that wave. Look no further than the free app HappyCow!
If you have ever flown out of the country then you know coming back can be a nightmare. Long lines wrapped around so that someone can check your passport and potentially ask you some questions. You could literally be standing there for an hour or more. A free app aims to help you bypass those long lines, Mobile Passport.
Figuring out where you want to go and how you are going to get there is only a part of traveling. What to do and see once you get to the destination is a whole other thing. People are always trying to discover what there is to do in different cities. Attempting to find the best tour or activity can be daunting, especially when there are so many companies doing the same thing. GetYouGuide is an app to help you figure out what you can do in many cities around the world.
There are so many sites and apps to help you find the best airfare prices. Last time I told you about how SkyScanner works to find the best flight deals. Saving money is always a great thing, especially on flights. Now I want to introduce you to another app that will aid in that quest, Hopper.
While traveling you can spend a good amount of time in an airport. Between arriving early, flight delays, and layovers everyone wants some level of comfort. Lounges come in handy for this and many of them have amazing amenities. To find a lounge/club and give your trip an upgrade, the app LoungeBuddy helps you find one to best suit your needs.
Sometimes you will arrive at the airport really early anticipating very long security lines only to find out there is barely anyone there. Other times you may have too much liquids in your carry on bag only to be turned away from TSA and now have to check your bag. It is a lot of information that changes. The TSA realized all of this and more and has decided to make an app, My TSA, to help passengers.
Sometimes planning in advance isn’t an option. You may want to make a spontaneous trip to travel, have a staycation, or just need a last minute place to stay. Many times these last minute choices result in paying much more for a hotel room then you would have liked. The app, Hotel Tonight helps solve this problem.
Converting information is really important when traveling. Much of our time as travelers is spent figuring out currency, temperature, and more. These are important elements to know when heading to different countries. Knowing an exchange rate or what to wear are important factors. The GlobeConvert app is a great app to help figure this all out and more.
