Ready for Takeoff – Smart travel preparations
Five useful travel apps for your vacation
The holiday season is getting closer and so does the anticipation of a planned vacation or a longer trip. In your mind, you’re already making the first travel preparations and putting the most important documents in a safe place. To help you await your vacation in a relaxed way, we are introducing you to five useful travel apps that will make your preparations and stay abroad easier.
PackPoint – Packing made easy
This smart organizer app will help you easily master the most important and at the same time most basic of all travel preparations: packing your bags. To make things easy and stress-free, PackPoint will create your personal packing list. You enter the dates of your planned trip, the holiday location and which leisure activities you would like to pursue there and the app creates a handy packing list with all the important details. You can then edit and add more as you wish so that in the end everything will really end up in the suitcase and nothing is forgotten.
Google Lens – the smart travel guide
There’s so much to discover in a foreign city – from unknown sights to exotic dishes to new plant and animal species. Google Lens has the answers to your questions. The image recognition software instantly knows which statue you’re marveling at, finds recipes for delicious dishes, and picks out directions for your next destination. In this fashion, you will get to know the new environment even better and find your way more easily in unfamiliar areas.
The Booklet is a great idea to send a surprise to your travel companions or those at home. Or create your own postcard for your loved ones at home with the postcard service. In this way, you make yourself and others happy with your travel photos.
The ifolor app is available for Android and iOS.
SimpleCurrency – Paying fast and easy
SimpleCurrency has been developed to prevent stress during the holidays when it comes to the conversion of the various currencies. This user-friendly app easily calculates the amount you need to pay. You can select several currencies at the same time and use the app completely offline. In this way, you can keep an eye on your finances and better assess prices.
With a Travel Budget app you can record your expenses and keep track of your travel budget.
TripAdvisor – Vacation Planner and Activities Finder
If you want to find out about your vacation spot beforehand then TripAdvisor is the right app for you. Here you will find restaurants, attractions, leisure activities and much more with some information and ratings from the community. You can even come across the less touristy and equally recommendable destinations. You can mark your favorite destinations on the map and plan your perfect holiday from home.
Having these travel apps with you will not only facilitate the travel preparations but also your stay in the vacation spot. Have fun traveling!
