9 Vacation Planning and Travel Apps to Make Sure No Vacation Days are Left Behind

From Citi Personal Wealth Management

Thanks to apps and technology, there are a number of incredible ways to make your personal and financial logistics a whole lot easier—so your vacation days can truly be a vacation to remember. Here's a sample:*

Vacation Planning and Travel Apps

User-generated review sites are a great way to find a variety of perspectives on your vacation options. The TripAdvisor app, for example, gives you access to more than 150 million user-generated reviews—accompanied by more than 19 million candid traveler photos—of the best hotels, restaurants, attractions, and more. Most of the travel booking sites also have vacation planning and travel apps to help you make arrangements on the go—Hotwire's app, for example, provides you with frequently updated deals on hotel rates. Not a good packer? Packing Pro guides you through the packing process so you don't forget anything you need, or bring anything you won't.

Money Management Apps

It's always difficult when traveling abroad to figure out how far your money will go in each country, but you can avoid this problem with currency converter tools like the Currency app, which puts up-to-date exchange-rate information in the palm of your hand. Your bank's mobile app is also a must-have when you travel.

Apps to Help You Stay Organized – and Connected

Instead of carrying a file folder filled with scraps of paper and receipts, look for an app that can help you keep all of your important travel documents at your fingertips, like Tripit, an all-in-one travel organizer that not only keeps track of your itinerary, but also scans your email inbox to compile any confirmation numbers you'll need on your trip. Apps like Free Wifi Finder are also lifesavers, since they can find you the closest place you can access free Internet.

Translator Apps

It's easy to feel lost when traveling in a non-English-speaking country. A translator app makes things a little less mysterious by instantly translating signs in other languages into your own; iTranslate is indispensable, because it puts a voice-activated translator in the palm of your hand. And one of the most important types of apps to have in foreign territory is something that can help in case of an emergency, like Help Call: It automatically connects you to the emergency services number (like America's 911) for whatever country you're in.

Apps to Help You Find Food

Looking for the best deep-dish pizza in Chicago, bagel in New York, or paella in Madrid? Download an app like FoodSpotting, which helps you find the specific dishes you're craving nearby.
