Holidays can be stressful. You go away to relax but your met with constant road blocks.
"I want to fly to the other side of the world but like... I don't want to spend THAT much money."
"I am BUSTING but I cant see a toilet anywhere"
"So many fuel stations, such a big town. How the heck do I find the cheapest one?"
"That looks like a good price, but how much is it ACTUALLY taking out of my bank??"
If any of these sound like you, rest assured I've got your back! Since we all always have our phones on us, why not make them our handy little tour experts. If you're a fond traveler like myself, then you have probably already tried your fair share of apps. I'm not sure about your luck, but only 60% of the apps I try actually help me like they promise to.
With this list, I am going to save you time, money, and a lot of unusable apps.
Here are 5 travel apps that will make travelling a breeze!
1. Just In Time - Australia only
Just In Time is an application which allows you to find any nearby toilets. While this app isn't the most exciting, I can tell you that it has been a lifesaver MANY times.
2. Fuel Map - Australia only
If you are driving a vehicle of any type in Australia, then this application is a MUST HAVE! Fuel Map lets you look up all the fuel stations in your area and finds you the cheapest one. If you're anything like me, that 4c makes a difference!
3. Unit & Currency Converter
This one pretty well explains itself. Currency rates are constantly changing, and you don't want to get caught out thinking things are much cheaper then they actually are. This application also has the added benefit of converting many other units. Gone are the days of getting slightly concerned when someone mentions its going to be 100 degrees!!??
4. WhatsApp Messenger
WhatsApp is the perfect international (and domestic) communication app. All you need to use it is the WhatsApp app, internet and your mobile number. WhatsApp lets you make group chats, send messages, photos, videos, audio and documents, as well as make phone calls internationally for FREE! Yes ladies and gentlemen I know we all love a good freebie.
Hopper predicts your flight prices with up to 95% accuracy so you can put some of that coin back into your pocket! All you have to do is insert you travel plans, and Hopper with send you notifications based on whether you should book your flights now or hold off for a better price.
Well that's it folks, my top 5 travel apps.
