6 essential apps for your vacation
The summer holidays are officially launched! It is time for the lucky ones among you to pack your bags and head out to new horizons. Beach, sun and relaxation are generally the key words of a vacation. We disconnect and we enjoy… But to make your holidays even better, I am offering you today 6 applications which I hope will help you throughout your stay.
The best free apps for a great vacation
If you are going on vacation with your vehicle, the app Waze will undoubtedly be your best traveling companion. Indeed, Waze is a gps navigation app very popular which has the largest community of drivers in the world.
Thanks to this huge community of motorists, the application can refine the road network in real time. Waze will keep you informed of traffic, roadworks, police, accidents and more in real time.
Finally, note that the application will also allow you to easily find a parking lot or a gas station. Waze is available for free on Android and iPhone.
Gasoline & CO
Unless you have an electric car, fuel is arguably one of the biggest expenses on your vacation. So, to stock up on savings, I suggest you install an app to find gas stations where fuel is at cost. I suggest you here Gasoline & CO, but be aware that there are others. I have also written you an article on this subject: 5 applications to find cheap fuel.
Are you looking for a supermarket, a bank or even a pharmacy around you? The application AroundMe available for free on Android and iPhone might help. All you need to do is select what you are looking for from the categories listed and the app will take care of listing you the addresses closest to where you are. AroundMe will also give you some useful information such as opening and closing times, telephone numbers and customer reviews.
Where are the toilets ?
Do you have a desire to do your business? The free app Where are the toilets ? will allow you to find nearby public toilets in no time. Thanks to its community, the application lists no less than 150,000 toilets around the world. From the app interface, you can set several criteria: free, disabled access, general rating of the place or the type of place (restaurant, public, shopping center, gas station or bar).
When you are on vacation in a foreign country or in a city in France that you do not know, it is difficult to know what there are as attractions or tourist places to visit. TripAdvisor is an application that will allow you to quickly discover all the things to do near where you are.
TripAdvisor lists all the activities you can do during your vacation: museums, sites and monuments, natural parks, games and entertainment, hiking and biking, and much more.
In addition, the application also allows you to find a hotel, a restaurant, a flight, a vacation rental and many other things that I leave it to you to discover. In short, TripAdvisor is the ideal companion for your travels.
XE Currency Converter
If you are planning to travel outside the European Union, a currency converter can still be helpful. The application XE converter available on Android and iPhone will carry out the conversions in your reference currency, currencies from around the world. The application updates the exchange rates with each launch in order to offer you the most accurate equivalent amount possible.
