There are two types of travelers: The adventurous, who almost choose their destination at random without knowing what to visit, and those who are organized and plan the smallest details about their stay in another country. Whatever type you are, besides a pair of clean clothes and airplane tickets, you’re going to need some services that you can now take with you on your smartphone to get the most out of your vacation.
Once you have chosen your destination, you’re going to need a way to get there, and a place to stay if you don’t have a friend’s house to stay at abroad. KAYAK is the official application of the service of the same name which allows you to find the best deals on flights, hotels, and car rentals from your smart phone so you don’t miss out on any of the best prices.
This app will filter the search results according to the criteria you’re most interested in, such as the cheapest hotels and hostels in the area, or if you want it to just show you those that are in the downtown area of the city. Also, you can view photos and reviews of each place.

If your destination this summer is to a foreign-speaking country, a translator is always a great idea if you can’t speak the language well. Taking one of those typical phrase books with you is good, but you can always end up needing more if they end up asking you or saying something to you that’s different than what is written in the handbook. Just like the web version, Google Translate allows you to translate between more than 50 languages. You can even hear how to pronounce what you need to translate.

Of course, all these apps won’t be of any use if you lose your phone or it gets stolen, which is a common occurrence on vacation. So, we recommend that you install an antitheft app on your cell phone, and avoid the pain.
