When we go on a trip, there is definitely a list of things we don’t go without. First we pack a passport, a bank card and of course a mobile phone, which can be a great tool when planning a trip. Nowadays, there are many travel apps that make it easier for us to plan a trip. Finding good apps is time consuming, and most of them aren’t exactly useful. We have already tried many mobile applications, but only a few have proven useful. Here is our list of 15+ useful travel apps to make our travels easier.

If you already have a travel date selected, you can set a reminder for a specific date in the app, which will notify you of any price changes with a notification.
We use the Google Maps or Maps.me application for navigation. We recommend the last one especially in moments when the mobile signal runs out or in case we do not have mobile data.
