Wanderlust is extremely real. Even when you are doing your absolute best to focus on the routine pieces of your day-to-day life, it’s hard not to let your mind wander to the adventures out there that you have yet to enjoy. The good news is, technology has made it incredibly easy for you to make travel plans right in the palm of your hand.
If you are dying to get out and travel this year, then there are some apps that you absolutely need to download. At ParkDIA, we are all about making traveling as easy as possible. That’s why we’re going to take today to cover a few of the apps that you need to download ASAP.
Destinations on Google
There’s no doubt about it, Google takes the cake when it comes to being able to get a sneak peek of specific destinations. Google Destinations makes it easy for you to type in the location that you’re going to visit and enjoy the endless opportunities available when visiting. From places that Google thinks that you’ll be interested in when visiting to the weather forecast, this is an excellent way to get a grip on what to expect with the destination that you’ve selected.
More importantly, this is also one of the best places to scope out gorgeous pictures so that you know what you have to look forward to.
If you are open to the idea of traveling wherever the opportunity allows, then Tripnary is definitely an app that you should download. This app is extremely fun to use because the possibilities are endless and it’s changing all the time. Essentially, the search is based on what you hope to do on your vacation. So, for example, are you looking for a mountain resort or a beach vacation? Once you’ve entered your search, you will set the budget for your trip.
After you’ve made the search, Tripnary will notify you whenever there is a is an itinerary that matches your criteria within your budget or when prices drop. If you’re looking to stick to a budget with this next trip that you’re planning and you’re reasonably flexible with where and when you go on your trip, this is definitely an app to download.
Some individuals love to travel alone. There’s something exciting about getting comfortable on your own terms and having the opportunity to go wherever you please whenever you want. If you are someone that loves traveling on your own, Tripomatic is an app that helps independent travelers create an itinerary. Even if you are incredibly spontaneous and up for anything that comes your way, Tripomatic will key you into some of the places that are popular in the area that you should definitely make some time for.
The best thing about this app is that it truly provides you with everything that you need for your trip. From great places to eat and drink to the best sights to see, Tripomatic makes it easy for you to organize your independent trip, even if it’s just a little bit.
If you are one of those independent travelers that like to go wherever the wind takes them, then you know that there are times where your travels leave you in a bit of a sticky situation. What we really mean is that sometimes adventure leaves you without a roof over your head. While you can definitely try and get a room at a hotel for a high cost, you can also make the most of this app!
Overnight is an app that was designed with last-minute trips in mind. It’s relatively similar to Airbnb but is primarily intended for same-day stays. Ultimately, you search the app for a place that you’d like to stay, and a host will respond if they’re able to take you in for the night. If you love being able to travel without much of a plan, this is definitely an app that makes that possible.
Now that we’ve talked a little bit about booking a last-minute stay with hosts, it’s important that we talk about Airbnb. This is definitely an app that you might be familiar with, but it’s one that is important to cover nonetheless. Traveling is expensive, and the places that you need to stay while traveling certainly make up a good portion of the cost.
If you’re trying to save money where and when you can, Airbnb is a great app to take advantage of. This is different than the Overnight app in that you absolutely need to book your stays in advance. The primary reason that Airbnb is such a great app for travelers is that you can save some money and still enjoy a quality stay. Countless hosts have an extra room, house or apartment that they rent out to individuals that are visiting.
The places on Airbnb often provide you with a sense of home. Decorated to be comfy and cozy, you get the opportunity to have access to a full kitchen (most of the time) while also being able to come and go as you please. There’s no doubt about it though, it’s a great way to get a different experience and save some money in the process.
