Best mobile travel apps that will help you have the best possible holiday. Discover new ways of travelling. PART II

Now you are in your destination, you need to move around.

First we´ll show you some useful apps to help you if you decide to rent a car, travel by train or need public transport information.

If your holiday is going to be more “nature-oriented” and you decide to go out of the asphalt, there are also great apps for you to download in order to know more trekking and mountain bike tracks.

.

Recently purchased by Google, this app uses real-time driver input to route you to the quickest path to your destination. You can see how useful an app can be when smart social media is combined with a constant Internet connection to the world.

.

Another crowd sourced app, described as “community of users working together to update gas prices“. Users can quickly and easily search for gas stations nearby and compare prices.

.

This app puts the spontaneity back in train travel—look up train schedules between most stations in Europe, buy tickets (on certain routes), and select a seat, all within minutes on your phone. Our favorite touch: It even gives information on lockers and luggage storage at train stations. Price: Free, Available on Apple

You will have subway directions in more than 400 cities worldwide. And once the app is downloaded, you won’t need to be connected to a network. (Just remember to make sure to refresh the app before you leave, because MetrO is updated weekly).

Keep TRACK of your best track app:

Explore, create and share your own GPS tracks.

This app will allow you to track your outdoor activities on a map, take photos along the route and upload all of it directly to Wikiloc right from your mobile. You can choose between running, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, kayaking and up to the 45 different outdoor activities available. And your friends will know about your activity instantly through the Wikiloc-Facebook connection.

.

Your location guide.

It´s somehow similar to the previous app, wikiloc, but also useful for city routes. You can make your own route thanks to your GPS, but also see the shared trails of other users.

It´s a fun app to play with while travelling. With TripLine it´s possible to create a mapped timeline with notes, photos and even videos of every place you go by.

This way, when you go back home, you can live the experience once again and tell your friends step by step in an interactive way. We don´t promise you friends will want to listen 😉
