The top apps for travellers

Thanks to technology, smartphones have made it easier for travellers to make the most of their holidays.

“The era of carrying around large city maps has been phased out and it’s been shown that 80% of travellers use their mobile devices for online booking, so the time has never been better for an app,” says Phil Bloomfield, Cheapflights Global Head of Communications and PR.

If there has ever been any confusion over the meaning of a sign in a foreign country, the photo translator has fixed that. With this app, a photo can be taken of any signage or text with the phone camera and directly translated into 25 languages.
