Exploring a new place can be pretty intimidating – especially if you don’t speak the language.
Check out our list of 4 must-have Apps for European travel!
Want to explore a city before you even touch down? Streets is a great app to do just that! Users can view street view panoramas on iPhone, iPad, and their Apple Watches! Offering an easy interface to walk through any location covered by the Google Street View – this app offers an interactive mini map to easily navigate panoramas, favorite places, and a gallery browser with 2000+ places so you can see your hostel before you even get there!
In our personal experiences traveling, GPSmycity is a must. While it isn’t based in one singular app, there is a unique app for every major city in Europe. Designed to limit data usage while still providing solid mapping and GPS functionality – this app has literally saved our lives multiple times. Whether you’re visiting the Don Quixote statue in Spain or trying to stick your tongues on the walls of the Wieliczka Salt Mines, this app is a useful travel tool to keep in the back pocket of your BauBax jacket.
Whatsapp is a pretty universal name for international travelers and it’s easy to see why. Can’t afford the moolah to drop on an international data plan to call your folks? No worries! As long as you can find wi-fi at a hostel or a nearby McDonalds, you can call or text as much as you want with!
This one is not for the faint of heart – sometimes traveling is hard and you can catch yourself on a pretty tight budget. That’s where Couchsurfing comes in!
Just sign-up, get some references of character, and you’re golden – find the perfect match to house you for a night. Some experiences we’ve had with our hosts have been pretty amazing – a personal tour of Dublin and a pint of Guinness at a local favorite bar? No contest.
Whether you’re backpacking through Europe or just on a mini-vacation, start easy traveling with these apps today!
