Travel Apps

Explore your world by finding deals, booking flights, knowing when to pull off the road, and getting out of town with the best travel apps.

    Google Maps is the number one go-to travel app that you can use to explore destinations before you arrive and make a note of places that look interesting by adding a star or flagging them on the map. As your travel plans shape up, you can use the map to put together a plan for the day by visiting places that are grouped together. You can also save your maps offline so that you won't get lost even if you don't have data on your phone.

    Roadtrippers is one of the most essential apps for any road trip. Roadtrippers is the ultimate travel planning resource for anyone embarking on a driving vacation. It's especially useful for travelers who have a clear starting point and ending point, but aren't quite sure what routes to take, what cities to stop in, and what to see along the way. You just punch in point A and point B, and Roadtrippers will give you all of the best options for getting from one to the other along with recommendations of hotels, restaurants, bars, and can't-miss points of interest. It's completely free to download and use, although a premium version is available with even more features. You can discover millions of places like local diners and quirky roadside attractions and get inspired by one of their premade trip guides. Once you enter your destinations, the app will calculate trip time, mileage, and gas cost. It will also show you destinations along the way you didn’t even know about!

    TripAdvisor is a number one app of the most popular planner apps on most mobile devices while traveling. When you search for a city in the app, you'll get a feed of other users' trips, photos, videos, articles, great places to eat, to visit, etc. Besides that, it is a nice place to book hotels, flight tickets, and find places for shopping. Tripadvisor download is available for iOS (iPad and iPhone) and Android devices as well as on desktop (PCs, laptops and Mac computers). However, the most valuable thing in TripAdvisor is what people are saying on the whole nine yards: airlines, lodging, food, and other items. If you still have questions left, there are TripAdvisor's forums which are a great resource for getting some specific travel-related information.

    Airbnb is an app that connects people who want to rent out their homes with people who are looking for accommodations in that locale.

To stay in Airbnb on your next trip, just visit the website or use the app, enter the location that you’re planning to visit, select check-in and check-out dates, and the number of guests included in the stay. Airbnb download is available for iOS (iPad and iPhone) and Android devices as well as on desktop (PCs, laptops and Mac computers).
