In an era of innovative technologies, it would simply be irrational not to take use them to your advantage and enjoy the wide variety of functionalities that they offer making your life much easier.

Among these innovations of the 21st century are the specific applications designed for travelers, tourists, or simply for those who have frequent business trips. These travel apps will make the arrangements and planning of your trips much easier and faster starting from the booking of hotels, choosing the flights, learning about the country and culture you are heading, or simply guiding you through that country by extremely easy-to-grasp maps and navigating programs.

However, you might stumble upon some difficulties when having to choose a travel application because the mobile app market offers such a great number of travel applications that it might take you ages to choose the right one from them that will meet your needs and expectations.

For that exact reason, we have singled out the top travel applications narrowing down the number of apps you have to choose from as well as helping you choose from a list in which only high-quality apps with free user access are included. So here we go!

1. Citymapper

  • Information about real-time departures.
  • Disruption alerts.
  • Uber integration.
  • Cycle routes.

Citymapper is available in over 30 cities all over the world and comes in very handy. Therefore, if you travel often, it will surely be one of the travel apps with some good use.

The app is available for iOS and Android.

2. TripIt

3. Duolingo

Duolingo is good for travelling to different countries with its translation

No matter how widespread is English all over the world, in some countries, they don’t know English. Thus, the language barrier can actually create problems for you unless you have paid for a tour guide which is, of course, an expensive way to go besides a tour guide you might never get off the beaten track.

So coming to the point, we offer you an app that is a free way of learning new languages. Duolingo has over 70 million subscribers and comes with a comfortable and eye-catching design. Obviously, this app can’t be a replacement for a teacher and a full language-learning course. However, it will help you learn the basics enriching your vocabulary as well as making your grammar skills better.

For a tourist or a traveler having Duolingo at hand will mean never worrying about serious language barrier issues or getting lost and not being able to ask anyone your way back, say, to your hotel. For example, Duolingo can help you to learn Standard Chinese so you can feel more comfortable when traveling to China.

Above all, the app is fun as it is like a computer game with certain levels which you will have to pass to reach higher ones. Indeed, Duolingo is one of my favorite travel applications.

The app is available for iOS and Android.

4. LiveTrekker

LiveTrekker is a great app for adventure-seeking travellers

Here is a great app for all adventure-seeking travelers. With this app, you’ll be able to create a kind of digital journal which will let you see your trips on an interactive map.
