10 Amazing Travel Apps You Didn’t Know Existed

1. TripIt

TripIt is a free travel organizer – this baby will plan your ENTIRE trip for you from your flight to your car rental.


2. Free Wi-Fi Finder

This app will locate free Wi-Fi nearby, so you can access the internet no matter where your adventures take you – and more importantly, Instagram your trip!

3. PackPoint Packing List Travel Companion

Can’t afford to check your bag? Have the common college girl problem called “you need to pack every pair of shoes you own?” This app will help you organize your packing based on your travel destination, the weather, and planned activities.

4. Concur – Travel, Receipts, Expenses

On a budget? No problem! This app will keep track of all your receipts during your trip, so you can stay within budget.

5. Airbnb

Okay, you’ve probably heard of this one, or have even used it! But I had to include it because it’s the hot thing right now and people have had great (and cheap) experiences. This app allows you to book a place to stay ranging from a house in Morocco, to a bedroom in Australia, to an entire flat in Los Angeles; and it’s usually cheaper than staying at a hotel.

6. Foursquare

Explore places to eat, drink, shop and sight-see! You tell the app what you want, for example “romantic restaurants,” and it tells you where to go.

7. XE Currency

In a foreign country? Not sure if you should be buying that purse for 50 euros? Use this currency converter!

8. DrinkAdvisor

Wherever in the world you have landed yourself – you gotta check out the clubs. DrinkAdvisor is a guide to bars and clubs in the area, with reviews and ratings for each one.

9. KickBack

Already been to the clubs in the area? Use this app to find local events to attend. There may be free concerts or festivals nearby.

10. Phrase Party!

Play this game with your family or friends to pass time in the hotel room or while waiting in the airport.
