Here is a quick pick of 5 free apps for travel that we thought we would be useful. We know there’s a lot more out there so if you found one that you can’t live without please share!
Pack the Bag
No matter what, something always is forgotten. With this simple Pack the Bag app you can make a number of different lists depending on what type of trip you are taking and just check it off once it’s packed and ready to go.
This app is a roadtripper’s dream. It’s easy to use and let’s you select a number of different things based on your preferences. Accomodation, attractions, entertainment, food & drink, history, nature, shopping and sports are all major categories that you can select. Within those categories, it narrows it down even further. Pretty cool for a free app.
One more app that is great for road trips is GasBuddy. You can search by city, zip code or exact location to find the cheapest gas prices in the U.S. and Canada. It seems to be updated fairly frequently.
This JiWire app is key for finding a Wi-Fi connection when you’re out of town. All you have to do is plug in the area you’re in or let it find spots near you. It not only tells you paid Wi-Fi spots but the free ones as well.
This app is great if you are traveling internationally and need a quick currency converter. You can select and look at 10 different currency rates at a time.
