Simplify Your Holiday Planning With These 4 Apps
Planning a holiday can be stressful. There are so many details to get right and plans to remember. And even when you have it all figured out, something always seems to go wrong.
Luckily, there are apps available to help you out of a tight spot. Stop stressing about accommodation, currency or translation. Download these four apps before you go, and save yourself the hassle.
1. App in the Air
App in the Air will make sure your holidays never run off schedule. This app breaks each flight journey into four stages (check-in, boarding, take-off and landing times).
As you move through each stage, the information you need will become available. Flight information, check-in times, currency exchange rates, etc.
Are you looking to pick up a few foreign language phrases before you travel? Then Duolingo can help you with that.
Duolingo has free online courses in languages such as French, German, Italian, Dutch, Irish and Portuguese.
Learning is fun and interactive with pronunciation practice, word games and more.
3. Google Translate
Now you can have all the convenience of Google Translate right in your pocket.
If you’re still struggling with a foreign language, don’t stress. This app searches and translates almost any word, from 90 languages.
There’s also a feature that reads text in a photo. For example, take a picture of a menu or street sign and Google will instantly translate.
4. XE Currency
Exchanging currency can end up costing you big. If you don’t get it sorted at the airport or before you leave, you might get stuck using local money traders who charge massive commissions.
But the handy XE Currency app helps you save money. The app can help you exchange currency anywhere in the world, so you can keep track of your spending.
It also offers live proprietary exchange rates, rates for precious metals, and historic currency charts.
