There are literally thousands of travel apps available in the Google Play Store, but knowing which ones to download can be tricky. Here is a list of my favorite traveling apps that I personally use:.
- GasBuddy – You wouldn’t pay more for gas if you knew it was $.10 cheaper down the road, would you; so, why pay an extra $.10 on vacation? GasBuddy relies on real users to enter real-time gas prices, so you can find the cheapest gas within a reasonable distance. Plus, users who enter gas prices, get entered into a drawing to win gift cards for gas.
2.Expedia – While there are many hotel and car booking apps available in Google Play, Expedia is my favorite because they make everything so easy plus their prices are guaranteed to be the best!* (While checking out, you may even search for a promo code and save even more on your hotel).
3.Google Maps – there’s a reason Google Maps is already installed on most phones – because it is the best. Google Maps is a very accurate navigation tool that can estimate your arrival time, warn you of any delays and even show you an exact zoom of where you are going using Google Maps. In my years of traveling, there has only been one map I’ve been willing to trust and its this one because its so accurate.
4. Police Scanner – I may be pretty nosy, but when I am on vacation, I always like to know where the sirens are heading. The Police Scanner app allows you to listen to a real-time police scanner feed to hear what’s going on.
5. Tripit – this app allows you to organize and share your travel plans. From storing your past trips to planning your upcoming trip, Tripit keeps everything you need organized and easy to find.
6. Vacation Countdown – While this app does not technically come in handy while on vacation, it does give you something to look forward to after booking your vacation. The Vacation Countdown app gives you a real countdown of how long you have before your trip.
Those are my favorite apps, what are yours?
