Travelling With Technology – Apps You’ll Go Ape For!

Technology is changing more quickly than we could ever hope to keep up with! But it’s worth having your finger on the pulse when it comes to apps – they are an amazing tool that we are already heavily reliant on. They are particularly useful for travellers – you can have all the information you need at the touch of a button even when you’re on the move. If you are planning a flight, then how about checking out some of the latest iPhone apps available? They are guaranteed to make life easier, and once you install them there’s no looking back.

Have a look at these amazing app ideas – they will transform your travelling experience!

Currency Converter Apps

Search for currency converters in your app store and you will be inundated with choice! It’s a great way of having information to hand when you shop and it will help you get the best exchange rate possible. They update automatically so you always have the most up to date information at your fingertips. There are plenty of good quality free apps which offer this service but the ones that charge offer a few extras here and there that might be useful to you.

Flight Itinerary Apps

Never lose sight of your flight’s arrival and departure date by installing a flight itinerary app! Flight times are constantly changing but these apps will let you know, so that you can plan around any changes. There are two main ones – Flight Status and Flight Update – which are great. You’ll have to pay for them but it’ll be money well spent.

Airport Parking Apps

Airport parking is always an issue wherever you fly from. Every airport has a different set up and if you are using an airport for the first time it can be hard to figure out how and where you park for the easiest access to the airport. You’ll probably have to pay for an airport parking app but it’ll save you loads of money in the long run as it alerts you to special offers and discounted prices. You’ll be able to reserve parking spaces, compare prices and check online forums for other customers’ experiences. It takes an awful lot of hassle out of airport parking. A quick search will throw up loads of app options but check out some reviews before you decide which one to install.

Navigation Apps

It can be hard to find your way around when you are in an unfamiliar place. Not anymore! Download a free app like AroundMe or Yelp and within seconds everything you need to know is at your fingertips. You’ll also be able to find local services and amenities such as bars, restaurants and banks. Wandering around aimlessly will be a thing of the past!

When it comes to travel, it’s well worth embracing the technology that is available to you. For a very small fee, or even for free, you will have information to hand that will save you time and money, and take all the stress out of travelling altogether. App-tastic!
