It's a technologically-advanced world and when it comes to travel, it pays to get appy. If you're anything like us, our phones are basically an extension of our hand, so we know how useful it is to have some handy apps at your fingertips when travelling. These are some of our favourites, that really take the stress out of travelling...
Airport App: GateGuru
A fantastic app for navigating your way through the airport and finding healthy food options at the terminal is through GateGuru, which features airport maps and a list of all the shops and eateries available near your gate or terminal. This is a great way to stock up on magazines, find the nearest coffee kiosk, or discover the best food places to head once you’ve cleared security.
Food App: FoodSpotting
Food is definitely a part of the travel experience and what better place to find dishes at great restaurants than on Foodspotting. Foodspotting is awesome as it allows you to instantly find whatever you’re craving, and, better still, these places are tried and tested by other people first (including experts), so you know what you’re getting is the real deal.
Itinerary Travel App: TripIt
Want to have your itinerary with you at all times? Load up your travel plans with TripIt!, an iPhone app that lets you load in your itinerary and all those details you need to satisfy your Type A organization personality. You can load in dinner plans, addresses for all the sights you want to see, and it will even port in your flight information. Pretty nifty!
Contiki App (Wait, what?)
That’s right, we’ve got our own app!
If you’ve already booked your Contiki adventure, check out the Contiki app – a place to tell your travel story. Get access to your Contiki MeetUps and your itinerary so you know what’s happening day by day. Note: You MUST have an existing Contiki booking to use the app – don’t download it unless you are going on a Contiki.
