Our phones play such a huge part in our lives that, for many of us - especially those who spend most or all day with them glued to their hands (or pockets)--it's impossible to imagine life without one.
One out-of-the-box advantage: your phone can be your map and guide when traveling abroad; it also serves as an excellent communication tool both locally and internationally!
With so many great travel apps on the App Store, how do you decide which ones are worth using? So, before you leave, download these 4 must-have travel apps for your phone:
- COVID-19 App
If you are traveling abroad, your flights and hotel bookings must cover all possible quarantine risks, and also you have the COVID-19 tracing apps downloaded.
The IATA has recommended these two particular ones: DXB Smart App or Trace Together App on the phone of every traveler going to Singapore!
Our eSIM store Airhub provides travelers to obtain over 250 eSIMs at the cheapest rates the world over for all kinds of devices including smartphones, tablets, or a PC. With AIrhub eSIMs you get the ease and benefit of not having to carry multiple SIM cards or go through the hassle of changing your phone number whichever part of the world you are in.
Airhub eSIMs allow you to stay connected with your family and friends at local rates.
- Google Maps
Google Maps is the most popular travel app on smartphones, and it is 100% free. If you've already got Google Maps installed on your phone then, good news because we love this awesomely versatile tool too!
Google maps may be used for mapping or navigating; however, its features go well beyond what one would typically expect from such an application, like pinpointing places nearby with tons of great reviews written about them, finding gas prices near me, or seeking directions within cities like New York City which can even assist drivers who are lost without their GPS systems while also providing live traffic updates so there isn't any chance they get stuck driving around aimlessly trying not to become yet another statistic.
- Google Translate
Google Translate is the perfect tool for travelers who want to talk with locals in their destination. The best part? You can download and only use what you need when traveling abroad!
Likewise, remember that Google translate is not always accurate- don’t try cramming long sentences into it or asking anything too difficult. Instead, look out for badge icons that show that the particular result is a verified translation by members who speak both sides of the conversation.
Keep Calm and Travel hassle-free!
