5 Apps You Need to Pack for Your Next Vacation

The summer is right behind the corner. Normally, you start planning your next vacation: looking for a perfect destination, booking flights, searching for cozy accommodation and so on. Once all of this is done, you can relax and start counting down the days until your dream holiday.


When the long-awaited moment arrives, it’s time to pack. Packing usually refers to preparing all your clothes and things you may need during vacation. Nevertheless, given that nowadays when we live in a digital era, you need to prepare your smartphone, as well.

There are many ways your little friend can help you while traveling and enhance the whole traveling experience: from getting by in a new town, sightseeing, talking to the locals, to handling money, receipts, and different documents. Therefore, you should dedicate some time to provide your phone with helpful apps.

Luckily, that won’t take much of your time because we thought of common problems you may encounter on vacation. So, we found some useful apps that will cover them. You only need to travel and fully enjoy your holiday. Have a look!

Navigate in a new place with ease


Google maps may work in your city, but when you go on a vacation usually you don’t have Internet and you have to chase a free Wifi. So, you end up asking locals for directions or interpreting an old fashioned map. If you can relate with this situation you need to download MAPS.ME for your next trip. It allows you to use maps without an Internet connection and most importantly for free. Simply enter the location where you want to go and this travel app will quickly guide you. From now on you’ll get by in an unfamiliar place like a local, without losing and squandering your precious traveling time.

Are you a traveler who always carry a guidebook by your side? Naturally, how else would you know the best places to visit, what to eat and to try out?! Well, it’s time to put away your guidebook and find out everything you need from the first-hand. Localeur gathers all tourist attractions and recommendations from the locals, so you’ll get really reliable information directly from someone who lives in that area.

Do you speak English?


When traveling abroad, it’s time to brush up a little bit your language skills. Not only will the communication go smoothly and without misunderstanding, but locals will appreciate it highly, so you’ll probably get a special treatment. This doesn’t mean you need to master completely one language, a couple of key phrases will do the trick. The best part is that you don’t need to take a course, you only need one app. Duolingo will help you learn a new language completely for free. You won’t even feel like learning because you’ll have fun playing games. It doesn’t take much time, but you’ll gain a lot.
