Best Travelling Apps

The advances in technology have made travelling much easier and can help to reduce the stress of navigating unknown areas. One of the greatest advancements was the development of smart-phones, which today, are often affordable and always within hands reach. There are a number of smart-phone apps available on the market to help reduce stress of travel and enhance your experiences. Take a look below at some of our top apps to download:

1. App in the Air

App in the Air is your own little personal flight assistant in your pocket. The app provides great updates about your flight, information on your flight status, waiting times and even airport tips. The app is available to download for both Apple and Android users, with a free or premium version.

2. Cities Talking

Cities Talking is a great app if you are fairly new to a destination or visiting it for the first time. The app provides a selection of walking guided tours for most European cities. Using your device’s GPS, the app knows where you are, enabling you to travel the city without Wi-Fi or a data connection!

3. Expensify

Available to download from iTunes and the Google Play store, Expensify is a great app to help you keep track of all your expenses on the go. Using the app, you can cleverly scan all your receipts and summarise your spending at the end of any trip.

4. Gas Buddy

The perfect app for those of you who love to hire a car on your travels. With Gas Buddy you can take away the stress of having to find the next fuel stop in an unfamiliar area, the app can not only help you find where the next gas stop is, but can help you save money by finding the cheapest fuel.

5. Google Trips

Relatively new to the market and available for free on both Apple and Android devices, Google Trips is a great addition to any traveller’s pocket. Google Trips allows you to bundle reservations, find nearby attractions, customise itineraries and get recommendations based on your search history.

6. Stop Breath & Think

Travelling isn’t always stress-free, that is why Stop Breath & Think is such a great travel companion. At Questor Insurance we love the personalisation of the app depending on your mood, recommending mediation to calming walks. If you decide this isn’t the meditation app for you, there are plenty of others to try many offering different features.

* When downloading mobile and tablet applications always ensure you download them from a reputable source designed for your device e.g. iTunes and Google Play. When using a sat nav or your smartphone for navigation, make sure you adhere to the highway code.
