Traveling plans often determine how well your travel life will be.

For a perfect journey, proper planning with proper timing is necessary. This tends to be a topic of head-ache to most of the travelers –especially to those in tight schedules.

TripIt does bring ease in this matter if you aren’t a big fan of going with the flow. TripIt organizes your plans for a trip and keeps reminding you of them.

TripIt supervises you throughout your travel – providing you information about a place and an event before anyone else does.

If you haven’t installed TripIt yet, now is the appropriate time.



For budget travelers, Couchsurfing is a delightful platform. Couchsurfing is, moreover, a locus where travelers can share their stories with locals.

Couchsurfing hands over a traveler an opportunity to earn a new family. You can opt to be available for just a coffee or a couple of nights, and the choice is yours.

The app lets you decide who you are going to stay with before you head out. You don’t have to pay for the bed you will be offered, but if you choose to help, you may.

Locals relish this app substantially as much as a traveler does.

XE Currency Converter & Money Transfers

Wanting to know how much the taxi fare cost you in your currency while you are in a different country is obvious.

XE Currency Converter & Money Transfers will answer questions as such. But only if you have installed it on your device.

The every minute updates on the conversion rates are not the only reason of its excellence. Also, you can understand the local market condition via the currency’s behavior over time.

 Uber and other cars/bike riding apps

Uber and other similar apps don’t only promise to make your ride cheaper but also guarantee about it.

Uber is now offering its service in 60 countries so far and plans to expand the territory further.

Riders, not in the mood to bargain the ride fare with a taxi driver, turn to Uber.

If the country you took your feet to doesn’t have Uber, there must be some other similar apps. Google is always there to answer which they are.
