    Fantastic list of apps! I use many of them although in SE Asia I use Grab more than Uber as sometimes the prices are cheaper. As a Travel Card, we have recently found Monzo, it’s new and still in beta but so far so good. Many of these apps I haven’t even considered so I will pin this extremely useful post as you have covered everything, even things I haven’t thought of so thank you! #feetdotravel

      Thanks Angie – I will get Grab when I head abroad and try to compare! Monzo is something I looked that but I think you have to top up a minimum £100 – still might check it out!

    Great apps! We use about half of them and also highly recommend GPSMyCity for blogs you love and want to take on the go! They turn blog posts into GPS guided maps! #feetdotravel

    This is such an interesting article. I am using the majority of the apps and I will definitely check the ones I don’t. I tried triposo in Cuba and it was really useful, especially because you can use it offline. Thanks for sharing.

    I use quite a bit of this apps. Opentable is one I use all the time at home, but haven’t thought of using it when I travel. The amount of apps available to help make traveling cheaper and easier just grows and grows!

      There are just so many aren’t there? And I am sure there are some specific to the States too that I may not be aware of!

    This is such a great list. With the many apps available, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by it all so having recommendations from someone who actually uses them is great. I found I’d already downloaded a few that I never use (oops!) and will add some that sound great, namely Packpoint! I’m sure the app would never suggest packing 6 pairs of shoes! 😉

    This is great! I already use a few of these, but there’s several you mention that I’ve never heard of. I’ll be saving this for later and downloading many for future travels. Thanks!

    Holiday Pirates – love that name! Unfortunately for us Yanks, no US base yet. One more reason to consider moving to the UK! 😉 We’re also going to look into Revolut, but most of the others we either use now, or have in the past. Great list, Lex!

      Thanks guys – definitely keep an eye out for Holiday Pirates. It should only be a matter of time until they have a US version!

    Nice list! And I use many of these myself too. Looks like I’ll need to add a couple to my phone. Citymapper seems like a really useful one. I also like maps.me for off-line maps, because sometimes you don’t have a local SIM card right away. And you can pre-pin stuff on maps.me and it works through GPS without data. So you don’t have to worry about getting lost in a new place. And haha I don’t judge – I use Tinder too. I’ve met great locals through it who would take the time to show me around!

    About two third of the apps I use or I know about them. I often use Kayak and skyscanner for flights. One app I missed which you might want to add: foursquare. It’s quite good for local restaurants etc.

      Thanks George – I have used foursquare before but not recently so I will give it another go and see what it’s like now!

    I’ve not heard of Instabridge but I’ll download this app now, so useful. I tried Tinder whilst in Senegal last year, although there are not many users out there, almost all of them match! Google Translate is very useful, especially with the audio option. My French is terrible so I use it mainly in French speaking countries.

      Thanks James – apps can really enhance an experience abroad! I definitely found matching easier abroad too! My French is non-existent!
