1. Currency

If globetrotting is on the cards for you, a currency app will come in handy in keeping track of your finances. Currency allows you to add over 10 different currencies and lets you calculate the conversion even without data connectivity, provided you have pre-downloaded the appropriate currency on your phone.

2. PayPal

An easy way to spend, monitor, and transfer your money on the go, PayPal also helps with any business-to-business or business-to-consumer transactions that may occur while you’re on the road.

3.Citymapper

Citymapper is a great public transportation app that combines all available transit to find the best route including subway/metro, bus, train, Uber, rail, ferry, bike share & personal bike with cycle lanes. It provides real-time directions, departure times and disruptions alerts.

4. UNIGLOBE Travel

Powering you with real-time data, the UNIGLOBE Travel app ensures that you have complete control over your travel plans. You can research & buy flights online, track your flight status and even look for restaurants in your destination city. Itineraries booked by your UNIGLOBE expert automatically integrate and update on the app. The app also lets you add personal trips and synchronize them with your calendar.

5. App in the Air

A smart, straightforward, flight tracking app with one of the best coverage of airlines and airports, App in the Air keeps you updated about flight status, even without data connectivity. Breaking down each flight into four stages; check in, boarding, takeoff and landing time, the app helps you manage your time at the airport.
