Top 4 Travel Apps for Your Summer Getaway

If you think being on vacation means putting everything on credit, think again. Check out these four travel apps for your next travel destination.

Even with summer in full swing now, it’s still not too late to take that last minute vacation you were thinking about. With your road trip out of the way, maybe you’re thinking of going to a far away destination before you have to head back to the daily grind of work. Whether you head up north for some majestic hikes and rich foods, or down south for some fun in the sun and great clubbing, there are a few essentials everyone should pack. On the technical side of things, though, we’ve put together a list of handy apps that you might want to have on your phone when you’re out enjoying a brand new city. Check out these top four travel apps to have when you travel to your next destination.

1. Duolingo

duolingo travel Apps Out of the ten most popular international destinations for Americans, six of these destinations have people speak a foreign language. But, don’t let a different language stop you from exploring the Eifel Tower in Paris or the Colosseum in Rome. Instead, why not try the Duolingo app for Android and iOS? It’s free to use and it makes it easy to learn a new language – anytime and anywhere. Simply choose the language you want to learn and then choose the level of intensity, from casual learning to “insane” learning. Next, let Duolingo know if you are new to the language or if you know a little about it. Then, your lessons begin. Use Duolingo before you head off to your destination, or just learn as you go.

2. Mint

Mint Travel App Are you on a budget? If not, now is a good time to start.

It’s easy to overspend when you’re on vacation. According to the Detroit Free Press, 52% of Millennials accumulate credit card debt while on vacation.

Ouch! To make sure you’re always on budget, download Mint. It’s totally free and available for Android and iOS. Mint gives you the complete picture of your finances – your bank accounts, credit card balances and bills are all in one spot. What’s nice about Mint is that it learns from your spending habits and will offer up tips to help you stay on track with your financial goals.

3. WhatsApp

whatsapp travel app One of the great things about going on vacation is meeting new people. But a downside to this is trying to stay connected. Text messaging in a foreign country can get expensive – especially when your new friend is using an iPhone and you’re using an Android. But with WhatsApp, you can message each other for free over your data plan or WiFi. It’s free to download and available for Android and iOS. WhatsApp is a hugely popular cross-platform mobile messaging app (outside of North America) that makes it easy for you to stay connected with your new friends – without spending a penny.

4. SURE Universal Remote

SURE Unviersal app Now I know what you’re probably thinking – why would I need a universal remote app when I’m on vacation? Well, picture this – it’s been a busy day out scuba diving and dancing at the local pub. You get back to your hotel and all you want to do is watch a DVD. You get a DVD player sent up to your room and when you go to get it all ready, the remote isn’t working. Cue in the frustration and expletives. But, wait! Before you get all bent out of shape, just use your SURE Universal app. It works for TVs, DVD players and a whole slew of other devices and appliances. It’s free to download and use, and available for Android users. The SURE Universal remote comes in handy when you least expect it.

Don’t Leave Home Without These Apps

Getting out and spending time in a new city or country is invigorating. But, it also means you are out of your comfort zone. And if you’re in a foreign city, you might feel a little reclusive. Instead of keeping quiet, use Duolingo to learn the language and assimilate in a new culture easily. If you think being on vacation means putting everything on credit, think again. Even though you’re on a holiday, it’s important to stay on budget with Mint so that you can have more vacations down the road. And finally, use WhatsApp for messaging new friends in a new city and always have the SURE Universal nearby for when you lose the hotel remote or worse – it doesn’t work. Over to you – where are you planning on traveling and what travel apps are you using?
