Apps for Travel
Whether you travel for work or whether you are a remote worker or a digital nomad. When travel and work come together, it can be a beautiful lifestyle or a mess. It really does come down to organisation.
You know that we love anything that streamlines processes or makes life easier.
So we wanted to share with you our favourite apps that have helped us through remote working, workations and many more travel and work-related adventures…
Google Maps has proven to be a little more reliable than Apple Maps. I really wish this wasn’t the case as I am an avid Apple user. But after trying (numerous) map apps, I came back to Google Maps.
Google maps offers you multiple travel options, and it is clear where you are and where you need to go.
Sticking with the theme of Google, Google Translate is a lifesaver. You can take a picture of any written or typed text, highlight it and get it instantly translated. A winner for someone like me who really struggles with new languages. It also helps you start to pick up certain words.
There are so many features of the Google Translate app; it is certainly one to check out.
Happy Cow is fantastic if you are vegan. I know not everyone is, but it is a great app to find vegan places in whatever destination you find yourself in.
I HOPE that you have heard of this one. It has to make the list as it really is a travel app essential. I love to use it to find secret finds and good wifi spots in new places.
Again. Not a new app to note but I want to include it for another reason other than the obvious ’to get food delivered to you’. It is an excellent way of checking out the food scene around your hotel or apartment, especially if you do have dietary needs!
There are many travel cards out there, but Revolut is one of our favourites. It is a prepaid card that you can easily top up with a few taps. The whole Cone Squad now has one, and they proved very useful during our Barcelona Workation.
Starling is actually my personal bank account in the UK, but it works well abroad too. You can withdraw money for no extra fee, and the exchange rate is pretty good. I am a big fan of Staring anyway as you can set goals and see where you are spending money, which is especially useful when travelling and working.
You may or may not be driving around in a different country, but if you are, Waze is super useful. It is a community of drivers that help notify you of any roadworks, accidents, speed cameras. It works in the UK but is especially useful when you are driving in new locations.
I mean, I know you are probably not new to Uber, but it needed to be on the list. Uber is great for when you are in the city and have no car. You can, of course, call the cab from your phone app!
Airbnb is a great option for long-term rents. You know the kind, too long for a hotel but too short for a 12-month lease. It also has a great function where you can find activities and experiences in the place you are visiting.
That is is for our must download work and travel apps. What apps are part of your app stack? Comment below or DM us on Instagram.
