The travel manager

The first application to install is an all-in-one travel manager, which will bring together your plane tickets, your hotel reservations and will suggest activities (museums, restaurants, etc.) depending on the time, the weather and your location.

To start, a good scruting application will allow you not to forget anything. Do not hesitate to consult our guide dedicated to the best applications dedicated to this theme.

In terms of travel preparation, the application that crushes all competition is tripit. With its automatic addition of information on your trip, it has all the features wanted for this type of application (plane, hotel, car reservation, etc.). The app also offers routes for your trips and even directs you at the airport in search of a kiosk or coffee.


Before leaving, the checklist is essential to be sure not to forget anything. There are Packing (fairly basic), Packpoint (more settings) or Packteo, The most complete and original. It allows you to quickly read things to do before leaving. You can create lists from suggestions (suitcase, sea, desert, mountain, abroad, with children, hiking, etc.), whether for things not to forget, your activities requiring a particular organization or According to the coming situations.

Find the ticket at the best price

Travel to Europe

To reach the destination, we can borrow different means of transport. If you cross Europe, Omio is the ideal service to compare the plane, train and bus to 35 countries and more to come. The app also offers airport transfers and ferry journeys. She then keeps your tickets at hand and sends you notifications in the event of a change.

OMIO: Train tickets, bus and plane in Europe

OMIO: Train tickets, bus and plane in Europe

Train tickets

To book a train ticket, there is of course yes.SNCF, the SNCF travel agency, essential and rather well done. You can book there for the train, the bus, but also carpooling in France and Europe.

Trainline: low -cost train and bus tickets

Trainline: low -cost train and bus tickets

We also and above all think of Trainline, which markets the same train tickets at the same prices, but with an interface often quoted as a model of ergonomics, all sectors combined.

SNCF Connect (yes.sncf)

SNCF Connect (yes.SNCF)

Take the plane

To go further, the only option is the plane. But this is the most competitive means of transport, so the most difficult to tame: the prices constantly fluctuate. In this context, the Hopper application does not only offer you to buy the cheapest ticket at time T, but predicts the best time to buy it according to your criteria. You can also receive recommendations according to your previous trips.

Hopper: flights, hotels, car

Hopper: flights, hotels, car

Unavoidable on computer, Google Flight is also accessible from smartphone under the name Take A Plane to find the ticket at the best price.

Take a plane - Google Flights

Take a plane – Google Flights

If you take the plane, there are pretty flight tracking applications, but the safest value is the application of your airline. We think for example stupidly of the Air France application.

Air France

Let us also quote Easyjet which has a clear and effective interface, allows you to manage your reservations and accompany you throughout the trip with boarding notifications.

Easyjet: Travel App

Easyjet: Travel App

As a rule, these applications allow you to register (check-in), present your electronic ticket and be alerted in the event of delay or change of boarding gate.


If you want to be sure you have opted for the right seat, do not hesitate to use the Seat Guru site (in English). You will have all the information on the distribution of the best places on an airplane, their equipment and services, indicating the flight number. All the companies around the world are referenced and users can add photos such as information.

GPS by car

To travel by car, you certainly need a GPS navigation application, and a traffic info service at the cleat. Waze is the reference, but it requires an internet connection. If you are traveling to France or Europe, this is no longer a problem, now that homelessness (roaming) is included.

Waze - GPS, Maps & Traffic

Waze – GPS, Maps & Traffic

If you are traveling internationally or if you want to save your internet volume for other uses, you can use Google Maps offline mode, or turn to a 100 % offline navigation application, such as Here Wego.

Here Wego

So don’t forget to deactivate your mobile data, or check our guide for the best offline GPS apps. Let us also quote the excellent maps.Me, a reference in the matter.


The Coyote application offers one of the best GPS tools to find its route, be alerted to traffic difficulties and dangers on the road. Years of know-how available in an app that is based on information shared by its large community of members for real-time information.


To travel by transport

To move on site, if you do not have your own car, the two universal solutions are public transport, taxi … or VTC. Uber is a controversial service, but it has the advantage of operating in several cities around the world.


To navigate by the metro, the bus or the tram, Citymapper and Google Maps allow you to easily find the line to take. Apple’s plans app has made enormous progress and now offers information on public transport in many major cities.


Book a hotel, guest room or hostel

To find accommodation, it is spoiled for choice: you can find a hotel room with a service like Booking.com.


If you appreciate the comfort of an apartment or a house, you can also turn to Abritel, which offers a wide variety of sets.

Abritel - Homeaway

Should we cite Airbnb, the reference of the genre when you are looking for a place to spend the night in a less formal setting than a hotel.


Great air lovers and campers can take advantage of HomeCamper to find the location to plant their tent.

Find restaurants, bars and cafes

The publisher Lonely Planet declines its famous tourist guides in the form of a successful application, supplied by local guides.

There is also Tripadvisor, whose reliability of opinions is sometimes called into question, but which has the merit of covering the whole world for free. The application has also modernized and now allows you to pin your best addresses, for you or on a card to share.


Finally, Lafourchette allows you to find a restaurant around and book at advantageous prices. The service is only available in France and in a handful of foreign countries.

Thefork (Lafourchette)

Internationally, Yelp will be of great help to find bars and restaurants. It can also be useful to find shops, leisure places or parks to rest.


Talk about foreign languages

Above again, you may need a translator to understand or make yourself understood. This is precisely the goal of Google Translation, which translates the text, the voice and even panels in augmented reality. The application can operate without internet connection if you have downloaded adequate language packs.

Google Translate

To translate posters, panels and other menus at the restaurant, Google Lens easily recognizes the characters of all linguistic systems and offers to send back directly to Google Translation to understand its meaning. In addition Google Lens, can identify certain objects, although the functionality is not very precise at the moment.

Google Lens

You can also simply learn a foreign language and we offer you a selection of the best apps to take lessons.

Exchange currencies and pay

Outside the euro zone, a currency conversion application will help you not spend without counting. We recommend XE.


Converting currencies is one thing, paying for it is another. Fintechs now allow you to pay a minimum of costs: N26 offers you to open a real current account for your expenses abroad.

N26 - The mobile bank

N26 – The mobile bank

Curve uses another way. The application provides you with a mastercard debitting one of your existing accounts.


Revolut goes a little further and provides you with a bank card to recharge. A small revolution.


To do his accounts

Do not wait for the end of the holidays to do the accounts, rather use an application to manage your expenses with family or friends with Tricout for example. You will then know who owes what and to whom.


Split is also a good solution, with a more refined interface. It is a little slower to handle, but is practical and effective once adopted.

Split: Group Expensures Manager

Split: Group Expensures Manager

You can also opt for the common pot and create a common kitty. For more details, do not hesitate to consult our full selection of applications to manage its budget.

The common pot

Note that more and more banks, especially online, offer costs for sharing costs with friends. This is the case of Money Friends Coté Banque Populaire or we share with my French Bank.

Now that you have been able to do your accounts with your friends or family, it’s time to pay your due. For this, the giant Paypal is perfectly suited.


In recent years, good alternatives very practical to use have emerged, such as French Lydia, which allows you to exchange small sums without going through the traditional transfer.


And also…

To find a WIFI connection Around you, you may use WiFi Finder. For more security and peace of mind, you can also for A VPN. And we have a guide to help you choose.

WiFi Finder - Free Wifi Map

WiFi Finder – Free Wifi Map

We do not fully measure the interest of such an application before you need it: where the toilets are ? lists more than 150,000 places around you, especially in France. Internationally, you can opt for Flush Toilet Finder, which lists 200,000 addresses (including France).

For me it’s maps on site and that’s all. The rest plane tickets and hotel is made from the PC before leaving. These apps save time is true, but hey we must not forget that we are on vacation and the goal is not to make time profitable as if we were at work, you have to relax a little.

The guy who says to let go of the technology meets himself a year apart. Excellent, don’t change anything: D

2 times per year. Rooo you can welcome your friends without app, you have to stop. A360 tire pressure, temperature on board and on the ground ? Order an Uber in 1 click to bring them home, and interflora for the bouquet��

Believe me I take the plane twice per year, it’s not as simple you don’t always have the info on the panel and abroad the phone does not always work ! There were flights canceled and I was at home no need to move to the airport to look for a friend with this app

a call ? An info on the display panels ? No Stess ��

My comment dates from 4 years but I will answer anyway;) to tell the truth an app as made to follow someone from the family family who comes from another country to find out if he has taken off or to see, see If our plane will be on time because sometimes they do not give information on delays of more than 2 haures . I do not know if you have already taken the plane or you waited for someone at the airport for hours .

and ‘at Ginette’, Anapurna, basic camps 4820 meters, 4 stars on the Roublard guide. The adventure begins ��

Offff, 3D network in network? we divide by the number of participants, simpler not? The app must be stopped to measure the number of liters of piss and the length of the pq roller consumed.��

pfff. On vacation we turn off his fucking mobi_drogue. Stop the apps to tell you or piss on the armored highways of Dorifores, and map to guide you in muddy trails. We let go of the thing, we take the departmental, the tites inns without full electric socket of rapid death, we leave the 3 moments at Mami to devote the 4G 100 GB of death, and above all, we do not answer for forums ��

Sorry the matche will start good evening

Like what, not really novelty on these miracle apps. Ah if I think you can note with Stars the quality of the toilets of the motorway areas . nice ��

and so ? You’re on the plane, you take off and your expected. what interest ? A good book by Marcel Proust: Sodom and Gomorrhote��

Vacance ok ? A paper card at the initiative union, Relax . No need to launch algorhythms of the best path from A A B, METHODE PERT, to do what ? Cool what ��

Well done, but you will do it ? or 1899 ridiculous photos and selphies on all world postcards? chiche !

And if the real useful app for the holidays was the ‘OFF’ button come out !?

I recently traveled in the south, I wanted to use the city’s public transport app but rotten total app, direct trip, she found nothing at all whatsoever stop or address. I found an app that even if imperfect, was top and was not only for this city but for a lot of cities in France, Europe. The drawback on the other hand is that it is that online or not found. When asked the way between point A and the low point, whether it is address or stop, she finds. It offers local public transport methods (ex RATP, RTM. ) with or not the correspondence whether by bus, metro, RER. Indicates whether it is necessary to walk or not, also indicates the other possible modes like bike, car rental like autolib. uber. The app is called Transit. Frankly she super served me where I went.

For a long time, for navigation, I do not separate from Osmand https: // play.Google.Com/Store/Apps/Details?id = net.Osmand The major advantage is to operate offline what Google Maps does not do if you are on foot or by bike. So for cities (Venice) or hikes in armenia assemblies, it works! The free version is the same as the paid version except that you can in principle only load 2 cards, in practice we find them easily and we put them in the ad hoc folder. After several trips, I chose the paid version to support the OpenSource project that users improve in particular with StreetComplete https: // play.Google.Com/Store/Apps/Details?id = of.Westnordost.Streetcomplete When you load a card, its level curves if necessary, you can also load Wikipedia, which makes a tourist guide (offline summary, more complete if you have data)

Back from Iceland or I was able to test a lot of apps. The best for me is maps.Me hiking trail/Volcal guidance offline. Hurry of Poi. In short, this app has everything to prepare your trip and travel. Its interface is intuitive. And in addition, it’s free.
