Essential Online Platforms For Traveling Nomads

December 15, 2022

If you enjoy traveling, you know how hectic organizing and traveling can be, whether on your own or with a group. A solid travel app or platform can assist you in becoming organized in this scenario. The following are the finest travel applications to assist you in organizing your next vacation, from making reservations to planning, from eating to getting around, and even to assist you with entertainment while in your free time.

Social travel apps

Social travel is essentially the sharing of travel-related information. It is all about finding travel tips and connecting with other travelers via the platform’s social travel networks. Some are primarily specialized with reservations and rentals, but there are apps focusing on tools for discovery and sharing and seeking to become actual traveling blogs fed by actual users like you.

The first platform that we recommend checking is Trippy. It provides a road trip planner tool with social elements, making it easier for users to ask their connections on these networks and other travelers who have visited the locations they’re considering for travel advice. They integrate Pinterest-like features, with a visual grid referred to as a “travel board” which are image collections from locations you like or have visited.

The famous flight-searching engine Skyscanner also has a social travel platform named “Trip”.  It resembles TripAdvisor more so than Pinterest due to its emphasis on creating mini-guides to specific locations based on user feedback. Users can also book hotels while making travel plans, evaluate venues, collect “stamps” from places they visit, and keep track of their travels in a “passport.”

Entertainment on-the-go

Traveling is not only about visiting new places, sightseeing, and walking all day long. While on holidays many people look to invest time for themselves, relax and enjoy their free time.

For those who enjoy online gaming, Vegas Slots Online is a platform specialized in grouping together in one place the best online casinos where players can bet on games like poker, blackjack, or slots. The best about these kinds of games is that you do not need a powerful computer to play them, they are all mobile compatible and you will only require an internet connection, and choose your favorite payment method, be it credit card, PayPal, or any other option available.

And one of the most popular streaming platforms in the world is without a doubt Netflix. The greatest advantage of a website like this is that it works from basically any part of the world. Meaning that no matter where you are, you will be able to stream your favorite movies or series and it even has an offline mode so that you do not need to rely on having an internet connection. 

Getting around apps

Digital developments have completely wiped from our lives the use of physical maps. The obvious choice for many when traveling to a foreign country and looking to navigate around a city is Google Maps. It offers automatic routing between designated locations and proposes alternative routes if the app detects traffic on the way. But the best about Google Maps probably is the complete information about restaurants and points of interest. Every spot has reviews fed by the millions of users in the app, so you know what to expect when choosing a place.

Citymapper is also a great choice. This app is very well connected to the public transportation system of most countries. You will quickly become a local with Citymapper, exploiting at the maximum the whole offering of transportation methods: Walking, taking an Uber, riding the metro, train, or bus, Citymapper gives you comprehensive, straightforward advice on how to get where you are going without any problem.

Organizing and planning

PackPoint is a joy for those who take packing as a science because it helps you to never forget what to bring. Based on the data you give (destination, duration, type of travel) and the predicted weather, the program creates a list. As you pack, cross out the items you need to bring or swipe off the ones you do not.

And if you are the type of person that needs flexibility when planning a trip, HotelTonight will become your life savior and will allow you to change plans or cover unexpected events. You will get the best deals in the city for the night you plan on staying there, saving you tons of time and money.
