Travel Apps for Staying in the Know

By Hayley Panagakis, May 30, 2017

Travel apps have revolutionized our access to information in new places. Knowledge is power, but it’s not always easy to identify the best sources of knowledge when you’re in a destination that’s unfamiliar. Download these three apps to help you with the fun stuff, like finding attractions and meals  off the beaten path, but also to receive weather and relevant safety alerts.

VizEat is like Airbnb for foodies. The travel app lets you book immersive, authentic food experiences hosted by locals in more than 100 countries. Experiences can include chef’s tables, food tours, cooking classes or home-cooked meals.

Safety is everything, especially when you’re overseas. Safeture is a tracking system and travel-warning communications app providing real-time alerts on local safety threats, weather concerns or travel delays. Friends and family can rest easy as the app tracks your movements at the push of a button.

Guided tours have gone mobile. TripScout sources local experts in cities across the globe to curate lists and provide audio tours of must-see sites, neighborhoods and activities you likely wouldn’t know of otherwise. Use the app to tour and learn about a city’s history, culture and cuisine on your own schedule.
