Eight Apps You Must Download Before Your Next Travel

There are apps today to help you in every sphere of life, from health and education to shopping and entertainment. When it comes to travel, apps have made it easier to explore the remotest and most distinct destinations. From the planning stage to the arrival and sightseeing, here is a list of must-have apps for a seamless travel experience.

Google Maps: A widely used app for navigation, Google Maps offers turn-by-turn directions, real-time traffic updates, and public transportation information to help seniors navigate unfamiliar areas internationally as well as within India. The best part is that you can also choose the language of instruction.

IRCTC Rail Connect: This app developed by the Indian Railways has simplified booking train tickets for everyone. Users can also check PNR status and get information about train schedules, seat availability, and more.

Skyscanner: This is a brilliant app for finding affordable flight tickets. The app is an aggregator platform that compares airfares available across various booking platforms so that you can select the best deal while booking a flight to your destination. It lets you book one-way, multi-city, and even return trips to cities within the country, and internationally as well. You can also check out hotel deals on Skyscanner.

Medlife: Ever been in a situation where you forgot to carry your prescribed medicines, or ran out of them? Then this app will be helpful for you. It is a game-changer when you are travelling to a city you are unfamiliar with and are unable to find a pharmacy nearby. This online pharmacy app allows you to order medicines, healthcare products, and essential wellness items. However, this app cannot be used abroad.

Transport Apps: There are a host of transport apps that allow you to travel within the city or even to nearby spots with just a click. Ride-hailing services like Uber and Ola are convenient options for booking cabs and travelling comfortably within cities. They provide estimated fares, driver details, and real-time tracking. Uber is also functional abroad and is very helpful when travelling outside India.

While Uber can also be booked for intercity journeys, Redbus is another great option. It offers a wide range of bus options, seat preferences, and real-time tracking.

Weather Underground: It is certainly not ideal when your day’s plans are interrupted due to bad weather. Before travelling, it always helps to have an idea about the weather. Even though it may not always be accurate, it can help you prepare for your day. With a weather forecasting app like Weather Underground, you can plan your activities according to the projected forecast, alerts, and updates.

Xe Currency Converter: A currency converter app is extremely helpful when travelling abroad. While sometimes you may depend on quick mental math, a currency converter helps you be accurate and stick to a budget. Even though there are several reliable currency converter apps to choose from, Xe Currency Converter is the most up-to-date and easiest to navigate.

Google Translate: Another essential when travelling abroad, Google Translate takes away the uncertainty of travelling to a new country with a distinct local language you may not understand or know. Moreover, with a simple interface, it is very easy to get the hang of it in just a few minutes. From Japanese to French, Google Translate offers translation services for various languages, allowing you to communicate effectively.
