The Travel Apps our Team Can’t Live Without

Here are the top travel apps our team suggest to make your trip complete. These apps have been tried and tested and have accompanied them to the likes of South East Asia…

 

Maps Me

If you ever need to download a detailed map of ANYWHERE in the world, this is the app for you. It is successful at directing you in the middle of a bustling city or on a desert island.

Grab

Think Uber for South East Asia – this app allows you to book transport and agree a price so you don’t get ripped off in the process.

Push Doctor

Terrified of getting ill in a foreign country? Don’t want to pay that excess on your insurance for something minor? Push Doctor is the app that can give medical peace of mind by connecting you with GPs via live video. You pay £20 for an appointment and the doctor can prescribe medication that will arrive at a local pharmacy. How’s that for peace of mind?

VPN apps like Windscribe

VPN (virtual private network) apps allow you to securely and privately browse the internet by keeping your IP address and location hidden. Rhys explained that this was an important app to have in China because websites such as Facebook and Twitter are blocked there. To be able to use them your IP address and location has to look like it’s elsewhere.
