Travel has come a long way since the days of early flights, travel agents, and dressing up as you board the plane. Now that technology is at our fingers tips a whole new world awaits with the help of apps to make travel seamless.

These are eight apps you’ll want to download as you plan out your next vacay.

Take the mystery out of figuring out the best route around your foreign city with Google Maps. You can see different transportation methods, save the places you want to go and a custom map will help you track the best way to see all the hot spots.

3. Google Translate

The people at Google know what they’re doing. Google Translate is possibly one the most worthy while apps while in another country. Need something from the store but don’t speak the language? Write it out and translate into the right language. Can’t read the menu? The camera option will translate the words right on the screen. Or take a photo and highlight the area you need to understand!

Anyone who has traveled with kids knows that when they need to go, they need to go. Flush Toliet Finder will help you find the nearest washroom, even when you don’t have internet. If you have time on your side, the app even rates the washrooms so you can pick which one is best. Disabled access and restrooms that charge a fee are noted.
