Google Trips

Planning and organizing your trips has never been easier, what with the introduction of Google Trips. Your things to-do list is automatically sorted with Google Trips based on your likes and interests. Even if you don’t like what Google suggests, you can tap the inbuilt “magic wand” and boom, a fresh set of nearby attractions come up on your screen within seconds.
The app saves all your travel information in one place by gathering travel data from your Gmail inbox and organizes it automatically. The best part is that the app is functional even when you are offline so you don’t need the internet to access your travel archives.


From dining to nightlife and transportation to travel options, Spot app provides expert recommendations for you to make the most of your vacation. You can also create a Wish list of your dream destinations and things you plan to do there. Once you decide to embark on one of your dream sojourns, you can share your list with your fiancé or your travel buddies to see how aligned your interests are for a particular destination.


Managing our finances on a trip proves to be a challenge for most of us. Mint was designed with an objective to solve this problem. It is one of the best apps to organize your finances for a trip. Keeping an eye on your travel budget and tracking your expenses becomes a piece of cake with this app. The best part is that it’s a “read only” app which means it doesn’t allow you or anyone to move funds between accounts, providing the additional security feature to the app. The app is free for android and IOS users.



One very important aspect that most of us ignore while travelling is our health. Although this would be the last thing we’d want, but what if something happens to us while we are travelling? In emergency situations, ICE gets you covered. The app stores details about your medical history, your physician’s contact details and health insurance information that can be accessed even if you have a lock on your phone. What enhances the app’s utility is the feature with which the stored information can be translated into 10 different languages.


Streetography is a fantastic app designed to help travelers who are a little skeptical when it comes to the locality in which they book their room stays. The app lets you check out an area before you book a stay with user-generated photos, which are a lot better than those on Google Maps. Streetography currently covers most prominent cities in the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K., Russia and France with future plans of expansion already in place.
