Student travellers and those who travel with them will find themselves using some of these apps frequently. Others are there for peace of mind. Either way, staying connected during these expeditions is important.
Group Travel Videos – Integrate your school community with this innovative photo-sharing app.
Localeur – Restaurants and activity review apps help when planning student travel—and once you and your group have arrived at the destination. If your students want to know what the locals are up to, Localeur will show them just that.
Duolingo – Learning a language with Duolingo is fun and addictive. Make your breaks and commutes more productive and practice the language skills with the locals when travelling.
Google Trips – The Google Trips app makes it easier than ever to plan and organise your trips. It automatically maps out a half day or a full day with suggestions for things to see and do. Don’t like what you see? Tap the “magic wand” to see more nearby sights. Each tap of the wand gives you a fresh set of nearby attractions.
TravWell – The TravWell app helps you plan for safe and healthy international travel. Build a trip to get destination-specific vaccine recommendations, a checklist of what you need to do to prepare for travel, and a customizable healthy travel packing list. The app also lets you store travel documents, keep a record of your medications and immunizations, and set reminders to get vaccine booster doses or take medicines while you’re travelling.
bSafe – Even when travelling, safety comes first. The mobile app bSafe lets you share your location with friends and use an alarm function to alert them if trouble happens.
Google Translate – (Android) Google Translate if you’re travelling somewhere you don’t speak the language, you’ll find Google’s free translation app very useful. Simply type in the words you need to translate, pick a target language, and away you go. Here is the link for iTunes.
