    But what the Cupertino-based tech giant really digs about this app is its “perfectly timed notifications that keep you up to date and stress free.” Plus, it tells you when you should be heading to the airport, explains exactly which runway you’ll be on, and delves into details about your plane.

    Not only do users find it helpful for tracking their own flights, but it’s useful for keeping an eye on your incoming friends and relatives.

    2. Currenzy

    Based on its name, it’s not difficult to determine what this app can do. As you might have guessed, Currenzy facilitates currency conversion calculations. (Whew, how’s that for alliteration?)

    If you’re shopping in a foreign country, or you can’t make sense of the prices on the menu items in a restaurant, the Currenzy app comes in handy, making it Apple’s top pick for travel apps.

    As a foreigner, you often have no idea which restaurants serve the best food. You can rely on TripAdvisor and Yelp for reviews, but if you’re a gastronomy connoisseur, you may want to consider using the Michelin Guide app to book reservations with the best eateries in the world.

    4. Turo

    If you find yourself in a country that doesn’t have the most reliable public transportation, or you simply want the freedom of driving everywhere without depending on taxis, Turo is beneficial for you.

    Touted as “the largest peer-to-peer car-sharing marketplace,” Touro is the Airbnb of the car-rental market. Hosts all over the world lend their cars to travelers seeking to explore new surroundings in a rental. You can choose between a rugged truck or a more luxe, smoother ride.

    5. GasBuddy

    If you’re going to be using Turo, you might as well download GasBuddy, too.

    This app helps you find the cheapest gas stations near your location, which is helpful for saving a few bucks. Traveling is already expensive, so if you can spare some change, it will add up in your favor in the end.

    6. TripIt

    TripIt serves as an all-in-one hub for your travel plans. So instead of looking at one app for your flight details and another for your accommodation information, you can forward your confirmation emails to TripIt.

    As a result, all of your travel plans, including flight, car rental information, and restaurant reservations, are organized in one place.

    7. Bird

    This way, you don’t have to worry about the headache of discovering garages and parking lots in unfamiliar, heavily populated cities.

    There’s even an app for adventurous travelers who prefer roadtripping. Catering to users in U.S. and Canada, this app caught Apple’s eye because it has a whopping 38 million pre-planned trips.

    Through the app, you can submit your travel documents and details to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Once you’re approved, you’ll get an encrypted QR code that you can show the CBP officer.
