Get These Apps. Travel Like a Pro!

Millennials Wouldn’t Understand

No one can argue that technology has made life easier. With the advent of the internet and smartphones, we no longer need encyclopedias, the Yellow Pages, or cumbersome road maps–all things that anyone under the age of 20 has never heard of.

 

Here Today; Gone Later Today

Indeed, when it comes to apps, the motto seems to be “here today; gone later today.” The apps that you may have used last year may already be outdated or even obsolete! Another challenge is scrolling through the hundreds of apps out there and trying to figure out which ones are good and which ones shouldn’t be taking up space and data on your phone!

 

Travel Like a Pro!

To help you keep up with ever-changing app world, here is a list of great travel apps that’ll make your next trip easier, more convenient and more fun!

 

Hopper

If you like saving money (and really, who doesn’t), you’ll love Hopper! Similar to apps like Kayak and Skyscanner, you can look at the cheapest dates to fly via a month-view calendar, but Hopper goes one step further and lets you know when to buy your tickets via push notification. Hopper claims that it can save you up to 40 percent on your next flight! Not too shabby!

 

 

Airbnb

Airbnb may not be new, but they have one of the best apps to help you when you’re looking for a place to stay and want a more authentic experience. You can choose to stay with a local in their home or opt for the whole home for a more private experience. They’ve recently added a new feature called “Trips”, which offers unique experiences to choose from during your stay. As with all house sharing apps, you’ll have the best experience if you make sure you read all the customer reviews before deciding on a home!

 

 

Hotel Tonight

Hotel Tonight is a reliable service that lets you book last minute deals at discounted prices. This app can be a lifesaver when the unexpected happens while traveling. Flight delays or dropped reservations are not a problem when you have Hotel Tonight. The app is also wonderful for free-spirited travelers who like to go where the wind blows. No need to book or plan ahead!

 

PackPoint

If you love checklists, this app is for you! PackPoint looks at the weather forecast for the dates and location of your trip and will ask you to select activities you may participate in and then offer up a list of items you should pack based on the criteria! You won’t need your mom to tell you to bring a sweater anymore!

 

 

Google Translate

Now there’s no need to spend months learning a new language before traveling! Google Translate provides translations for 103 languages, allowing you to listen to translations out loud and translate dictation and your own handwriting on-screen. Never get lost in translation again!

 

 

Turo

Like so many other travel apps, Turo is all about the “sharing economy.” You can skip the rental car agency with Turo. This app allows you to rent cars from private owners and save money in the process. Whether you want to rent a basic car like a Toyota Camry or a BMW, you can find them on Turo.

 

 

Take your Phone but Leave the Book!

Pack these apps with you on the next trip you take and you’re sure to have a smoother and more enjoyable trip! Leave the paper maps at home and for Heaven’s sake, leave the phone book!

Convenient Pre-Travel Consultation

Ready, Set…Hold On!

Congratulations! You’ve booked your flight, chosen an aisle seat, found the perfect hotel, rented the car, and even created a “what to pack” list (at least in your head). Seems like you’re all ready to escape on your dream vacation! You’ve planned everything meticulously and thought of every detail and eventuality. But have you thought of contacting TravelSafe to find out about what appropriate vaccinations and prescriptions you may need? If not, you’re almost done…but not quite!

Plan for Protection

There’s one more thing to do that will ensure you’ll not only arrive safe and sound, but you’ll stay that way for the duration of your trip and after! We at TravelSafe strive to ensure that you’ll have the most worry-free vacation possible and, for us, this starts with protecting you from diseases, illnesses, and outbreaks that may be present in the region in the world that you are traveling to.

One to One Consultation

Making an appointment for a consultation with one of our experienced medical professionals is easy and convenient. Simply call or email! We offer comprehensive service with knowledgeable staff, highly specialized in travel health.

The Power of Now

Booking and receiving a consultation is easier and more pleasant than waiting in the security line at the airport–and far less attitude! Our pleasant and accommodating staff make sure that we address all your concerns and provide you with all the necessary information for optimal travel health. In short, we can take care of all your needs and also arrange your prescriptions within 24 hours! For those of you who are a little “last-minute” when it comes to travel preparations—we’ve got you covered.

Why Do I Need a Consultation?

With the multitude of tasks involved in the planning of a trip, it’s hard to keep track of what vaccines are required, and even harder to keep abreast of current information with regards to disease outbreaks. Diseases can spread quickly and unpredictably, and it is our job to keep up to date and current so that we can provide you with peace of mind. Knowing you are getting the right vaccine for the right region you are traveling to is imperative!

Further to this, our TravelSafe professionals are dedicated to preparing you for a safe and healthy trip and can address your travel needs all in one visit. We will consult with you about the details of your trip, review your health history, provide the appropriate vaccines and arrange your travel prescriptions. We have all travel vaccines in stock, including Yellow Fever.

Invest in your Trip!

Trips can be costly. Once you factor in the price of your flight, the hotel, car rental and (of course!) shopping, things can really add up! You work hard to be able to go on vacation, and the absolute worst thing that could happen is that you fall ill during your trip. All that hard earned money down the drain.

An Ounce of Prevention

The old adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” really does ring true! It’s worth paying a small amount for your vaccines and prescriptions to ensure that you’ll enjoy your expensive trip to the fullest!

Before you travel, protect your health.
