Not only you can travel in comfort, you can also travel in style – without necessarily spending a fortune.
So, here are 6 apps that can help making your traveling moment easier and more fun!
This app can help you decide your destinations as well as the fun activities to do. You can also learn the best route – along the hidden path or things to enjoy – among your destinations. What’s cool about it is that you can make custom itineraries, specifically meeting your own requirements and needs.
Let’s face it; gas isn’t exactly cheap and it would be nice to know a place or two with affordable and reasonable price. With GasBuddy, there are different reports from different users about which place offering the lowest price. With this app, now you don’t have to drive around finding the cheapest gas – while you are actually wasting the gas for your purpose. It’s silly.
Do you know that there are lots of arguments happening on the street because of parking? Yup, some people are willing to kill for a spot. But when you have this app, you know about the availability, as well as the ones closest to your area. And the cool thing is, you can even get discount coupons with this app. Awesome!
No more spending the nights on the road – literally – with this app. Most hotels don’t reach full occupancy every night, so they can offer the unused rooms for those looking for a place to stay – with lower rates, of course. So far, the locations for this app are still limited, but it can be quite handy; you have to admit that.
You basically can arrange your own field trip with this app, since you will get notifications about lots of stuffs, such as special events, restaurants, historical spots, and many more when you are within a certain location. When you rate the infos, the app can provide even detailed and significant info that you like. However, the app will drain off your battery when it is constantly on. To save up battery, you need to turn it on only when you want to use it. But then again, you may miss some of the exciting spots while it is turned off.
It is named Skymap for Android users, and Star Chart for iOS users. If you’re the type of person who likes enjoying night sky and see the thousands of stars, this app is the perfect one for you. Generally, you would look at the stars and don’t really know what they are. With this app, though, you simply point the screen to the sky and it can tell you what constellation you are looking at.
