Lockdown has meant we haven’t been able to travel, but that doesn’t mean we can’t plan our future trips! I love travelling and am in the process of planning a few trips myself. I thought it would be helpful to share 5 essential travel apps everyone should have downloaded on their phones!
Airbnb is a great app that helps you find cool and unique places to stay around the world. The prices vary depending on what you are after and can save you a ton of money that would have otherwise been spent on a pricey hotel. What I love about this app is it’ll show you all the available accommodations for the dates you chose. There is such a wide variety of places to stay around the world and you can also read the reviews of people who stayed there previously!
Hotel, Trivago. We’ve all heard it on TV but this app is genuinely great at finding cheap hotels! This app allows you to put in a budget and will show all the hotels suitable for you on a map. This means you get to see how close you are to everything. This app is ideal for those who don’t want to stay in private accommodation, such as Airbnb. You also get to see photos from previous guests’ stays and see what they rated the hotels.
Bit of a daring one, but LuckyTrip was everywhere a few years ago. This app is great for people who want a holiday picked for them! You just need to enter your budget and what dates you are available, then LuckyTrip will flights, a hotel and an activity for you to do! You even get to alter the trip to choose a different hotel or hostel, depending on your preference. The app will also let you know what the weather will be like when you go, so you can pack accordingly!
This app is perfect for those of you travelling through Europe. It’s one of the most essential travel apps as it shows great prices on trains, buses and flights, so all of your tickets can be booked in one place! It’ll allow you to compare the prices and find the cheapest way to travel, as well as show the companies you will travel with and the times you are due to arrive. This app is perfect for people who like to plan ahead or even buy some last-minute tickets for a spontaneous trip away!
This app is essential for finding cheap flights. Just enter your destination and it’ll show you the best dates to fly, plus more details of the flight. This includes what company you’ll fly with and how many stops there are. The app also has an additional COVID safety filter, so you can see how safe the flight is.
