Travel apps have transformed the process of itinerary planning and reservation of air tickets and taken it to a whole new level. All it takes is a few taps on the keyboard of your electronic device and you are set to go.

Travel apps are available to guide you through the entire process beginning from travel planning to the start of your journey and beyond. Here are some of the top travel apps that you need to know about:

Travel Planner Apps

These are apps design to assist you with the decision-making process prior to travel and include:


A well-known name in travel planning, this is a useful app to refer to for information on your destination city, for example, Tripadvisor will provide you with a wealth of information, some of it derived from reviews gathered from other users. The app features photographs, recommendations on what to see, where to stay, where to eat, and other useful tips.


If, in place of a hotel, you prefer to stay in a house, apartment, or even houseboat at your destination, this app is a great source of information about rental homes of all types to suit your budget.

Packing Pro

This is an excellent travel planning app for those who do not enjoy the process of preparing for a journey. You will also find it useful if you are prone to forgetting to pack important items. Packing Pro provides you with a ‘to do’ list for essentials you need to take care of before travel, and provides suggested packing lists.

In addition to Travel Planner apps, there are also apps available to help you source for cheap flights such as:


A great app that is not only free but also compatible with both your Android as well as Apple device, Skyscanner has been in business since 2001 and prides itself in keeping pace with the latest technology. As a result, they can offer you low-cost multicity trips. Skyscanner is recommended for international travel and its ‘everywhere’ tool is highly rated for sourcing alternative lower priced dates to travel and cheaper months to fly.
