11 Travel Apps for Summer 2016

July 13, 2015

Let’s face it- technology is making travel a lot easier for us. With one touch of a button we can book a flight, a hotel, and order a cab to take us to the airport. Yes, it really is that easy. But if you find yourself still thinking of using a travel agent, or cutting out images of places that you want to visit, then we have the list of all lists for you.

That’s right- there is an app for everything these days. From pulling together a list of places, and things you want to do from experts or recent travelers to finding WiFi when you get to a new location.

Trover

Before a holiday begins, (and as soon as a holiday is over), those with wanderlust will love to spend time with Trover – the ‘visual bucket list’ app that allows you to plan, share, and contribute to a community of like-minded travellers and holidayers.
