Hopper is another must-have travel app that helps you save money.

This app analyzes the pricing trends of billions of airlines. With all that data, they accurately alert you to the best time to purchase your tickets and which deal to choose.

You can set up alerts for multiple locations which help you choose which location you should travel to next. Instead of spending time and effort searching for the best deals, you can concentrate on other things — like packing!


PieSync is an essential app for travel if you go on a lot of business trips.

This app syncs all your information between multiple devices, like a work desktop computer and your smartphone. So when you travel on a business trip, you’ll have all the essential work information at your fingertips.

You can also sync data with team members based on the app. So if your boss needs to have all your client contact info while you’re away, this app handles it in seconds.

Google Trips

No list of top travel apps would be complete without Google Trips.

This app lets you create plans and itineraries for each day of your trip. If you have a blank spot in your day, you can also use the app to search for fun things to do. It’s a planner and the guidebook all in one.

The best part about it is that it keeps all your travel information in one place. You don’t have to waste time searching through emails to locate a reservation number or address.

Google Translate

Google Trips isn’t the only great Google app you should download. If you plan on traveling to a destination that speaks a different language, you need Google Translate.

Google Translate allows you to enter a phrase or sentence, and it translates it for you. You can then attempt to say the phrase yourself, or have the app dictate it for you.

Another great feature is that you can use the app to instantly translate text. If you come across a road sign or menu, you can use the camera function to translate to your language of choice.
