You might be traveling far and wide. But the one that the modern traveler just can’t do without is the Internet (unless of course you are planning on digital detox). So here’s a list of 5 cool and handy apps that will help you plan and organize your itinerary better. From last minute packing to the latest news on your destination, these apps are indispensable. So here you go!


Let’s start with your budget first. Yeah, we all think about that. Tripnary is a simple and fun app. If you plan well in advance, Tripnary is going to send you notifications of flight prices based on your budget searches to your desired location. So you can buy tickets according to your price preferences. Catchphrase here: Plan ahead!



Okay, that’s self-explanatory. But we will give you the details anyway. In a nutshell, this app ensures that you don’t forget your travel essentials, ever again. PackPoint provides you with a customized packing list to suit your travel needs, be it pleasure your business. Just select your destination, date and purpose of travel and your list will be ready. So if you landing in London on a sunny day, PackPoint will tell you that. Now that’s cool!



No travel app list is complete without Airbnb. This power-packed app lets you become the local, like literally; wherever you go. Here’s one app that’s tailor-made to suit your needs. Find spots close to you, search activities or even by property-type (cottage, bungalow, etc.), explore the place like you’ve been living there for ages. In addition, the Airbnb Guidebook ensures that you don’t need to install a separate travel guide. It lists best bars, restaurants, hotels, and even unusual to-do things. And of course, comes with a host of tips for smooth travel.


XE Currency:

Smart travelers will have a currency converter for sure. XE currency has been downloaded over 20 million times since its launch. It has a lot of advanced features such as rates for precious metals and historic currency charts but for the average traveler it’s a savior for the simple fact that it has all the world’s currency listed.

Traveling with friends is fun but it can also get tricky. When it comes to “Who pays whom” part. Splittr saves you a lot of trouble that way. Keep entering the expenses on the go and Splittr comes in handy especially if you are on a long multi-destination trip.


And now comes the part when your travels are over – well at least for the time being – and you sift through photos on your device. No matter how hard you try to avoid it, the sheer number of ‘similar’ photos will simply be too many. Instead of painstakingly deleting one at a time, get Duplicate Photos Fixer. It’s going to get rid of all those facsimiles in just a few seconds. A post travel photo app can do wonders too!


Watch this space for all the details on a brand new photo app that lets you edit 100s of photos at a go and much more.
