Spring break is nearly upon us, and some may have already had spring break. This is the time where many college kids will travel and have some fun right after mid-terms and before the second half of the semester gets under way. There are some great apps available to help you get the most out of Spring break and keep up with your travel plans as well.
If you’re planning on heading out of the country, Duolingo is a great app to check out. It helps you learn another language in your free time. And who couldn’t do without learning another language? Duolingo includes learning of a few different languages like Spanish, French, Dutch, Italian and many others.
Want to make the most out of your trip? TripAdvisor is a good app to download as well. Not only does it help you find the best and cheapest hotels, but it can also be your own personal tour guide. Guiding you to the top spots in the city that you’re visiting for the week, not to mention some great sightseeing as well.
Need to check the weather while you’re away? Yahoo Weather is another one to check out. Yahoo Weather is one of our favorite weather apps, as it can show you the weather by the hour and up to the next 10 days in most locations. It will also give you a notification if it’s about to rain or snow. Making it easier to make sure you’re plans aren’t ruined.
Whether you’re flying, driving or taking a train to your destination for Spring Break, Spotify is a great app to take along too. Spotify allows you to download music to be played offline. So you can jam out without needing an internet connection. That way you aren’t too bored on the way to Cancun or wherever you are headed.
Google Play Music
Like Spotify, Google Play Music also allows you to download music to play offline. Google Play Music also has a slew of radio stations that are available to play – of course these need a WiFi connection to be used. Google Play Music is also already installed on your smartphone, so you’ll just need to login to get started. Making things pretty easy.
One of the best apps for keeping track of all of your itinerary information for your spring break trip, or really any trip. TripIt, like Google Now, will scan your email to find emails about your trip. It will then bring that information into the app so that your flight information, hotel reservation and car rental are all in one spot. Making things really convenient while you are traveling.
It might be a bit late to look for flights for Spring Break, but who knows you may get lucky and find something. Using Kayak is the best way to find a flight as well. Kayak searches all of the major airlines, and will also give you insight on whether the prices will drop before your trip and give you the best time to book your flight to get it for the cheapest price.
Need some help finding the good spots in the city you’re in for Spring Break? Gogobot is a great app to check out, you can think of it as your own personal travel guide. It’ll show you the best restaurants, attractions, hotels and so much more, that are nearby you. Making your trip that much more fun.
Again, it may be a bit late to look for a place to stay during Spring Break, but Airbnb always has some great places available. While they may not be as nice as a hotel room, they are definitely much cheaper than a hotel, especially in Manhattan. Airbnb allows people to rent out their place to strangers, essentially, for a few days and even weeks at a time in some cases. It’s a good way to find a place at a cheap price.
If you are flying Delta for Spring Break to Cancun, maybe Mexico or even Florida, you’ll definitely want the Fly Delta app. This app is a must have, as it gives you up-to-the-minute information on your flights as well as letting you know quickly when its been delayed (it also allows you to rebook from within the app) and so much more. Fly Delta allows customers to check in using the app as well as get their boarding pass. So no longer will you need that paper boarding pass. Making life much easier when traveling.
