Your planning process is not complete until you have equipped yourself with the travel apps that will ensure that you have a most memorable and enjoyable travel adventure.

 

1. Trail Wallet

This simple and easy to use app helps you to organise your trip expenses every month. You can also use it to plan your daily budget and you are then able to add your expenses as they come.

You can do this by adding the expense amount on your bill or receipt using the app on your iPhone on the Quick Add screen and you’re good to go.

With this app you don’t need to keep carrying around your receipts in paper form. You won’t also have to struggle to remember how much you spent on your transactions.

You get a daily, weekly and monthly overview that lets you see how you are doing with your travel expenses.

If you’ve come above your budget, the app can show you the problem areas so you know where to cut back. On the other hand, it will also show you if you are still below your budget, which is all good.

Some of its key features are:

  • See your daily budget by tapping on it and it shows the amount you have left to spend
  • View the detailed summary to see all the information about your budget
  • View the spending for the last five days with the Interactive bar chart
  • You can add multiple trips with different start and end dates
  • Option to set your travel  start and end dates automatically

2. Culture Trip

This app helps you to discover and explore hundreds of destinations worldwide based on the recommendations of others who have experienced it for themselves.

With this wealth of information, you can use the app to search where to go and what to do when you get there.

You can also keep a record of the place you wish to visit by adding them to a wishlist. Sort of like a bucket list.

When you get to a location, you can share it to find recommendations and tips on places to go or what to do around there.

3. PocketGuide

This is the app for you if you need a tour guide that you can carry in your pocket and suitable for travelling on a budget.

If you are travelling and need a tour guide, PocketGuide will do that for you. It’s great as a walking tour guide with maps that are added to the app so all you need to do is just to put on your headphone and listen to it to guide you.

A unique feature of the app is that as it leads you on your guided tour, you are able to listen to key information and historical stories about the locations you are visiting.
