Technology That Has Saved My Life

TripIt

This app is where I store ALL my travel information. On the tour, I travel by plane, bus & sometimes my own rental car and am staying in a different hotel nearly every week. This app allows me to store all that info plus include notes like my nightly rate, the pet fee, etc. It’s all in one place so it makes it very easy.

5 out of 8 trips coming up

Uber

Until I got to Vancouver, I didn’t realize how much I utilize this app (Vancouver does not have Uber). Since I don’t have a car and am in unfamiliar cities and sometimes the public transit seems too much effort to figure out, I often take Uber. I love that I can use it in nearly every city (and even across the world in Sydney!).

 

Bonus: the local drivers are always great resources on what to do, eat, and see around town!

 

Key Ring

I use this app to store all my rewards program information. Because I have accounts at all of them. So this app makes it easy to pull it up when I’m standing at the airport or the hotel check in.

 

Airline Apps

I am personally a Delta girl so I have the Fly Delta app but most airlines have their own. I love the Delta app because it automatically stores all my itineraries but also has a cool feature where you can Track My Bags. It is so neat seeing where my bags are going through in the airport and how much time it estimates it’ll take to get to me.

Dropbox

I use Dropbox for work but I also use it for travel. I’ll save pdfs of itineraries or any other pertinent documents in a file folder that I can access on my phone and on the go.

 

Google Maps

Their offline feature is amazing. This saved me in Canada when I had a limited data plan and driving a rental car. Search for a city, click the city name at the bottom then Download and follow the prompts. This allows you to search offline and even give you navigational directions without using any of your data. This could also be a great feature if you ride underground subways a lot.

Venmo

This app is great when traveling with friends or coworkers. Anytime you owe someone money or vice versa, you can easily jump on the app or transfer funds or charge your friend.

 

What are your favorite apps?
