Here is a list of mobile apps I use on a regular basis for travel and travel research:
- Travel Blog Success – This is the online course in which I took way back several years ago to get me going in the industry and I still take advantage of the lifetime access to this day! Filled with excellent, step-by-step information to get you started on your dream career!
- GoEuro — Absolutely the best app you can have on a European backpacking adventure in order to make sure you are taking the cheapest transportation available (Hint: It is almost never by Interrail)!
- Maps.me — Save your wallet and stop using data while abroad. It’s not as difficult as you think to navigate a city without data, especially with offline maps like this.
- PalFish Tutor — If you are sufficient in English, apply to be a language teacher through this app and work anywhere in the world without any certification. It really pays off!
- Hostelworld — Ensure that you have somewhere to sleep at night with this app. It becomes as easy as a click of a button (Hint: it’s usually cheaper to book on this app rather than at the hostel anyway).
- Airbnb — I usually stay in hostels, but in some cities, it’s worth noting that you can find entire flats or private rooms for the same price as a stay in a hostel.
- Whatsapp — Again, save on expensive overseas cell phone bills with this great online communication app. Call, text, video chat, send pictures/videos, send recorded voice messages — this app has it all! Use WiFi! (Bonus: this app is the only app I’ve found that doesn’t decrease the quality of photos or videos sent!)
- VSCO — This is the best photo editing app I’ve come across. Make your photos flashy before you show off to friends and family back home!
