Alternative Apps for Travellers

December 28th, 2022

As a traveler, your phone can be your best friend, getting you out of many sticky situations. Everyone knows how useful Google Maps and a good currency converter can be. However, there are other app types available that can also make traveling much easier and enjoyable. Below, we discuss our alternative apps for travelers.

Slot Games

One way to entertain yourself on your travels is to use your device for something a little different. Many gaming providers have a range of games online, such as slot titles, to help pass the time on your travels. Not only that, but online casinos can provide an avenue to explore different forms of entertainment, relevant to the country you are in. Each country has its own favorites, which can help you get an insight into the people and cultures regarding gaming of the country you are traveling in.

With the best providers, you can even win money. The slots for real cash at Paddy's have a range of themes on offer, so you can theme them with your excursion. If you are at the beach, you may want to try Fishin’ Frenzy or if you are traveling through the green hills of Ireland, try Slots O’ Gold. Learning the rules of region-specific games and becoming more familiar with the lore and mythology through slot games such as these may also help you integrate into some parts of the culture and socialise if you plan on staying there as an ex-pat.

The idea of being on the road is a dream as you gaze at the beautiful vista unfolding in front of you. The truth is that hardened travellers know those moments are special because they are generally few and far between. When moving between places, most of the time you have limited views and scenery. Take the time to both entertain yourself and learn a little about the place you are going.

Flight Tracker

The global situation means flights are unreliable at best. If you are hopping countries in Europe using budget airlines, recent low staff levels and increased costs have caused numerous problems. Many flights are being canceled and this can often leave you stranded at out-of-town airports with no accommodation or onward passage.

Flight trackers will keep an eye on the whole process for you. They will check the airways, bringing up any delays or cancellations. The best ones will even provide you with changes to gates and terminals should they occur or notify you of traffic problems en route to the airport. Of course, you can limit these to only flights and changes that may impact your journey, so you are not overwhelmed with information. One of the most highly recommended is Flightradar24, which can be downloaded for both iOS and Android.

Packing Apps

It may seem like a packing app is superfluous. You just decide where you are going and then fill the case, right? If that is you, then you will probably benefit from a packing app more than most.

The best of these will do a multitude of things for you, asking about your lifestyle, destination, and expectations. From this, you will be given a unique packing list filled with everything you need to take.
Not only this, but it will come with many recommendations. These could include weather-related items, or if you need items for certain activities.

A popular choice is PackPoint, available for Android or iOS. It is free to use, but the premium version will only cost a few dollars and is a huge increase that will soon become your most trusted app.

Of course, these are not exhaustive. There may be others that are out there that change how you travel. This selection should make the journey and destination a lot less stressful, so you can sit back and enjoy your well-deserved break.
