The Best Travel Apps To Use In 2019 (Part 1)

 

There is a variety of travel apps cluttering up the Apple and Android marketplaces these days. And that’s really a problem because most of them are terrible and no one wants to pay for a worthless app.

If you’ve planned a trip for the year 2019, instead of wasting a week of your life downloading useless junk, consider these 10 great travel apps:

  1. Drops

This app turns learning language into an audio-visual game, with easy-to-follow illustrations. Drops features more than 30 languages and dialects, for example, Arabic, Mandarin, and Icelandic. It also offers daily scheduled lessons which will enhance your next trip.

It’s totally free to use within daily time limits, however, a premium subscription allows users unlimitedly access to the app with its full range of topics and its mix of languages.

  1. App in the Air 

App in the Air aims to be an one-stop app for all things related to traveling, including loyalty programs, departure times, and boarding passes. The app helps you a lot by showing you in real-time how long to wait at security, check-in, and baggage claim. Moreover, this app, which can be connected to Siri, helps you  measure your bag using augmented reality to see whether it will fit in your plane’s overhead bins or not.

  1. AirHelp

Have you ever endured the pain of a canceled or delayed flight? If yes, AirHelp will be right up your alley. Both EU and US laws provide for compensation in these cases, though the details differ. However, it is such a complicated process,  and in fact, fewer than 1 percent of passengers entitled to compensation ever get it.

AirHelp makes the process simple and help you do those things in a few minutes while still waiting at the airport. Just provide your flight information and some details about the problem, and the company will take care of the rest. If the claim is successful, they will take 25 percent of the payout and you will get the remainder.
