These Are The 14 Best Travel Apps for 2020

When it comes to planning and holiday-taking, travelers rely more than ever on their smartphones. Travel applications are not only a source of inspiration, they are also extremely useful for scheduling and handling transportation, making restaurant reservations, or discovering great museums anywhere in the world you travel to next.

Summer is around the corner, which means it’s time to talk about removing the winter coats and organizing your future vacations this year— whether it’s an official family vacation, a road trip, a solo fitness escape or a last minute long weekend getaway with the ladies. So it may be time to try free travel applications like TripIt, Kayak, and Hopper to make things a little easier while you plan your itinerary, do some quick pre-trip browsing, attempt to schedule flight times, hotels, and fun activities (all while keeping under budget). 

There are plenty of free travel applications that assist with everything from day-to-day hotel reservations and last-minute flight adjustments, as well as the ones that act as guidebooks and foreign language dictionaries. The best travel apps can help you navigate a new city; make currency conversions; pack a perfect suitcase; even give local tips on the ground. 

You will actually enjoy the build up until your next trip with the aid of these amazing travel apps!
