Leave Your Worries Behind with These Wonderful Travel Apps

Traveling is something that most of us look forward to, but it can turn into a total nightmare when we’re unprepared or hit with unforeseen issues. At airports, it’s easy to lose track of your personal belongings (and people!), and there can also be other things stopping you in your tracks such as language barriers, delays, and miscommunication. Luckily for us though, there’s plenty of travel apps out there to help us get back on our feet and truly enjoy our travels once more:

Airbnb

Tired of staying in hotel after hotel? If you’re looking for more freedom and choices when it comes to your travel accommodation, you’ll want to get to know Airbnb. With the app, travelers are able to reach out and communicate with their preferred hosts, and Airbnb has also integrated several types of “filters” to make searches more effective. From getting a room to an entire house, there’s plenty of options for you to choose from.
Available on both iOS and Android.

Google Translate

You might be familiar with Google Translate in your search engines, but did you know you can also download their standalone app? Not only does this give you the freedom to translate on the go, it also allows you to download updated translation packages for faster translations. From typing in your text to taking a picture of an image with text, this great application is truly a lifesaver in more ways than one.
Available on both iOS and Android.

Skyscanner

Some of us are a little more reserved when it comes to using apps, but with technology advancing by leaps and bounds, it’s also becoming more user-friendly. Take Skyscanner for instance. Not only does it allow you to search millions of flights worldwide simultaneously to get the best offers, you’ll also be able to do the same thing for hotel and car rental searches. That’s pretty much equivalent to getting an all in one deal at the tips of your fingers.
Available on both iOS and Android.

TripIt

Imagine having a travel-specialized personal assistant on call for 24 hours in the form of an app; and yes, we’re talking about TripIt. This amazing travel addition not only helps you plan and organize your itinerary, it’s also able to store all your travel documents for easy access, sync with your mobile or online calendar, and present you with the latest travel options and updates right when you need it and want it.
Available on both iOS and Android.

LoungeBuddy

Ever been stuck in long layovers or just looking to spend some time in between your flights? If you’ve been to several airports worldwide, you’ll have concluded that their public spaces are pretty much the same in terms of comfort (and that’s not saying much. With LoungeBuddy, you can instantly check out and identify any lounges in a given airport and also the details you need to know if you’re eligible for it or not. Nobody likes hard chairs, so go for it!
Available on iOS only.

Mobile Passport (Only for U.S. Travelers)

This app doesn’t replace your actual passport, but it does serve to expedite the declaration process. You’ll usually want to relax during your flight without having to search around for a pen, and with Mobile Passport, you’ll get your declaration papers done in no time. Just create a profile, fill-up the protocol questions, send it to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and you’ll instantly receive an encrypted barcode to use upon landing.
Available on both iOS and Android.

If you’re looking for a safe and comfortable mode of transport to the airport, you can definitely rely on our Vancouver car service. Manned by reliable chauffeurs who have years of driving behind them, you’ll get to enjoy your time on the road with us before we drop you off. We’ll love to have you on board, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time!
