Top Travel Apps Spring 2018
Spring is upon us and with it comes a season of new travels! The following apps are my top picks for Spring 2018. Our phones have become such integral parts of our lives it’s hard to imagine life without them. You can use your phones to help you in your travels with the following apps!
Skyscanner is one of the best flight aggregators out there. It has helped me find some amazingly cheap fairs in the past! I’ve found flights from Central Europe to Southeastern Europe for as little as $13 USD using Skyscanner! It works by searching listings from across the web from other flight sales websites to the airlines own and it will bring you the lowest fare possible.
Adding Skyscanner to your booking routines may help you save money on your next trip! Who knows you may even find that traveling to another country isn’t as expensive as you though!
Duolingo makes learning a new language easy and fun! Through short daily lessons you can quickly become fluent in another language. I am currently using this to learn German! Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsche!
The best part about Duolingo? It’s free! Check it out!
Expedia is one of my longest go to apps/websites. I have been using Expedia for years. They have different tiers of loyalty for repeat travelers. Expedia is great for putting together travel packages.
Been lets you mark off the countries that you visit and keep track of your world map. You can update been on the go and it will sync across all your devices. It allows you to see the percentage of each continent you’ve visited as well as the world as a whole. Clicking on one of the countries will pull up information about it if you’re connected to the internet! I use been as a way to keep track of where I’ve been and to answer that age old question “What countries have you visited?” When someone asks me I just show them my been app and let them see for themselves!
The Kindle App by Amazon is a fantastic app for reading books on the go if you don’t own a kindle. You can download the app to your phone or tablet and read books from the massive selection of eBooks available for Kindle. I often read books on the go while I on a plane or winding down in my hotel room. Kindle is an excellent app for this! Get your free Kindle App from Amazon by clicking on the banner below!
Don’t have the time to read your book? This is where Audible comes into play. I love listening to Audio books and consume them at an alarming rate! I listen to them on the plane, while riding the train/metro, that dull time on a tour bus between stops. Traveling is full of waiting and a good way to fill in the time is by listening to an Audio book! I recently listened to The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss. You can get a Free trial of Audible with two free audio books by clicking on the banner below!
I hope you enjoy these apps!
