Appy holidays: 6 of the best travel apps to download before your next trip
I have a lot of friends who go on these amazing, spontaneous holidays with no plans and no knowledge of where they're going, the language or the culture, but the whole idea of that totally freaks me out. I'm the type of person who really plans ahead. I like to have all my accommodation booked well before I set foot on a plane (the one time we didn't saw us spending the night sitting under the Eiffel Tower which was both lovely and horrible at the same time) and like to do my research on where I'm going so that I can get an idea of some fun places to go or a few polite words in the native language (because good manners are the one thing I always try to take with me!). It just helps me to feel more in control of my trip that way.
These apps help you out in the planning stages of your trip no matter how long you're going for. Whether you want to get a good idea of the weather, need help packing or want to avoid jet lag you can guarantee there is an app for that! Get these on your phone when you start planning your trip and you'll be a travel pro in no time.
