The world is bigger than you think and the days are getting shorter. There’s so much to see out there and seemingly so little time to do it. If you are one of that wanderlust, you will find these helpful apps that everyone has been talking about lately. The following apps can help tide you over until your next trip by giving you travel plans easier.
Talk about eye candy! Scrolling through Trover, you’ll find hundreds of thousands of stunning photos from all over the world that’ll make your wanderlust spike. See someplace that stirs your soul? The photos are all geo-tagged, so you know exactly where to go.
If you’re getting ready for your next great adventure but feel a bit insecure about your lackluster language skills, you’re going to want to make sure you download iStone. This easy-to-use app boasts a phrasebook of more than 300 daily phrases (think “Where is the bathroom?”) in a dozen different languages. Plus, you can even use it offline.
Available for iOS
Whether you’re actively shopping for your next travel arrangements or simply window shopping, Skyscanner should be your go-to for price comparison. The intuitive app lets you search, compare, and book flights, hotels, and cars so you can find the best deals for your journey.
Airbnb is a great app for planning trips in terms of looking for a local apartment or hostels. Just imagine holing up in a lovely apartment in Rome, sitting on the terrace sipping something hot and sweet. With over 600,000 listings in more than 34,000 cities, Airbnb is perfect for finding charming digs (whether you actually make the trip or just dream about it).
If by some remote chance you haven’t already downloaded Instagram, there’s no time like the present. Plug in travel-related hashtags for serious users. Follow other travelers’ accounts to peek where they’re looking and going.
Want to know the real, honest-to-goodness truth about that hotel you’ve been eyeing for your next vacation? Make Oyster your BFF. This app lets you peruse super frank expert reviews—along with photography and 360 panoramas—for thousands of hotels around the globe. You can search by price, theme (i.e. kid-friendly), or just feed your need to wander by reading travel diaries.
Like Oyster for cities, Findery lets you scope what others are saying about your potential travel locale before you plan your next trip. Because the insight is compiled from “notes” left by other travelers, the app feels trustworthy and, if we’re being honest, kind of cozy. Like an old friend, you can call for some spot-on advice.
Available for iOS and Android
