With many of us frequently embarking on new travel adventures it is so important to stay organized and keep your travel plans on hand as you jet set from place to place. Luckily, in this day and age there are many amazing tools available to us at the touch of a button. You can now have your entire trip planned out on your smart phone and be able to send your itinerary to anyone in a split second. With so many apps for traveling to try out, it is often difficult to discern the practical and useful from the apps that won’t do us any service at all.
These five apps cover most bases for people who travel regularly or even for someone planning out their first big trip.
Foodspotting: Because we all have to eat, let’s start off with this awesome app designed especially for foodies on the go! Showing you the best places to nosh no matter what city you are in; this app pulls your location to find great spots nearby.
Packing Pro: Never leave anything behind ever again. The perfect app for anyone with a Type A personality – it catalogues your belongings by category and even by which trip you are on. Excellent for the pre-planner who loves digging their suitcase out three weeks in advance, or the cyclist trying to organize all the essentials for their bike trip.
