Hailed as one of the best transport apps around, Citymapper has saved our jet-lagged, tired selves from a meltdown on more than one occasion.
Not only does this travel app tell you how to make your journey in the 39 urban areas it covers across the globe, but also how much it is going to cost and factors in any disruptions en route.
You simply tell the app where you want to go and it will suggest a route and method of transport whether it is a bus, train, bike or Uber.
For international travel, this is an absolute must for those who are not multilingual.
This user-friendly app has several features tailor-made for travellers like its camera function, which can scan photos of signs or menus and convert the images into translated text, and the conversation mode, which allows you to speak directly into the microphone for instant translated conversations in 32 different languages.
This life-saving free app organises your reservations and travel plans in one central place and allows you to check your flight, rental car and hotel bookings and dinner reservations even when you’re offline.
Better yet, the app imports the information from Gmail and Inbox and organises them automatically, saving you a whole lot of pre-trip stress.
Google Trips also gives tips for places to eat and drink and attractions based on what is close by, your interests and availability and can map out an entire day for you.
This genius app takes the stress out of packing and ensures you won’t be left without an essential item when you arrive at your destination.
Whether you’re going on an adrenalin-pumping adventure, a work trip or an island holiday with the family, just tell the app where you are going and for how long, and it will automatically come up with a suggested packing list. As you pack your bag, tick off each item so you can ensure you have everything you need.
