Apps can help travelers with everything ranging from booking hotels and translating a foreign language to knowing the best time to book flights and best places to explore. With more than two million travel apps available, figuring out which ones are the best can prove a daunting task. The following apps have been selected for their usefulness and functionality.
If you ever have issues with cellular data while traveling abroad, this free tool will come in handy. It allows one to download detailed maps for offline use to your map. This offers turn-by-turn navigation for biking, walking and driving to select addresses and locations. The maps also feature useful tools to view what is nearby including ATMs, hotels, points of interest and more. It allows you to take advantage of Nashville limo service by ensuring that you get to where you are going.
- Google Translate
Google has so far rolled out several apps that are useful to travelers. Among them is the translator tool that helps translate more than 100 languages through voice, typing and camera. There are about 30 languages that can be translated through photo. This tool is a huge time saver especially if you favorite certain translations to pull them when need arises. You can also download 50 of the languages for offline translations if you don’t have international data.
- Cool Cousin
The app features maps created by locals from varied industries and backgrounds. Once you select your featured city, you can select who your ‘cool cousin’ or guide will be. For instance, if you plan to travel to Paris, one of the Cool Cousins may be a foodie who can share information about the best terrace restaurants and little-known hideaways. Other cities features on this app include Rio de Janeiro, Lisbon, Barcelona, Berlin, Rome, London and Tel Aviv. The app works on iOS devices and developers are working on an Android version as well as adding more cities.
Allowing this app to see your location enables it to find a last minute hotel where you can spend the night. It can also search ahead for one of the more than 900,000 hotels and vacation rentals. Depending on your search, Agoda shows a list of hotel options and even highlights deals within the selected dates and location. What I love most about Agoda is that its search filters allow you to narrow down the results based on location, dates, budget and other parameters. You have the option to view prices in various currencies while every hotel page contains amenities, reviews, photos and other information to help you make a decision on where to spend the night once you rent an airport shuttle Nashville.
