We’ve reviewed the best travel apps from the AppStore and GooglePlay to keep stress to a bare minimum.
Let’s delve into the world of these little digital helpers!
Maps.me is considered one of the most effective maps and navigation apps available. It’s free, works offline and is available in 20 languages. It also allows you to design routes and search for places like hotels, restaurants and even book them. You can easily save your favorite places and share them as your current location with your friends. As this app is offline, you will not require the internet connection when searching a certain location. You will be able to search any possible area by its name, category, coordinates or address. Moreover, with Maps.me you can get relevant information about traffic jams or changes in the routes as it is updated daily by 1.8 mappers worldwide.

Sometimes, not everything goes as great as you imagined. This is particularly true for flights: you can face delays, cancellations, and overbooking.
The AirHelp app puts the power back in your hands as an air passenger. Any disrupted flight in the last three years could mean up to 700 Euros compensation. AirHelp follows up your claim with the airline and gets you your money back. No hassle, no stress.
Upload your boarding pass with the app’s scanner and your flight’s eligibility will be instantly checked. Take a photo to upload supporting documents and get notifications about your claim, as they happen. In just a couple of taps, you’ve submitted your claim!
Sounds great, doesn’t it?
It would be strange if we didn’t mention our own App in this review.

It’s a real must for anyone traveling abroad. XE Currency looks like any other currency converter but it has one feature that might be very useful – it works when your phone is offline.
This free app tracks live currency markets across the world to provide you with accurate up-to-the-minute conversion tables.
We are living in a digital era and it’s hard to imagine our everyday routine without Wi-Fi, even when we are on vacation, even when in the mountains.
Tep Wireless will let you enjoy all the benefits of the continued internet access. They provide their customers with a Teppy – a pocket-sized personal WiFi hotspot so you can keep your smartphones, laptops, and tablets connected in over 100 countries, with unlimited internet.
One of MeetnGreetMe Team-members tried it out – and enjoyed it!
Hopper mobile app is really useful if you’re flexible with your travel dates. It not only tracks flight prices but also predicts the date when the price will likely rise, so you can really find suitable tickets and even buy them on Hopper – with a commission fee of a few dollars. Besides, the interface as really cute!
App in the Air is a trip planner for all things travel, starting from your plane tickets to loyalty programs.
Especially great is that the app shows you in real-time how long the wait is at security, check-in and baggage claim using other users’ data. The new feature, powered by AR, allows you to measure your bag to see if it will fit in your plane’s overhead bins.
We hope you find our list helpful!
