With smartphones making it easier for people to access information at the touch of a button, apps are a great way to save time, money and worry.

When you go away on holiday or on a trip there are a number of travel apps that can help you along the way. Whether you need the latest currency conversions, are clueless to the language, or want to find the best places to go, at The Flight Case Company we’ve come up with our top picks of travel apps you need to download.





Skyscanner (Free) Android and iPhone

The best way to get price comparisons on flights, this app will help you find the cheapest flights. Simply type in your destination and desired dates and it will show you all of the relevant and available options to suit your criteria. For those making short trips, saving on travel is essential.


The Trainline (Free) Android and iPhone

For train timetables and fares this is the app to download. You can search for live train times which is particularly handy if you need to plan multiple trains for a single trip. It also allows you to book tickets through the app that can then be collected from the station, as well as favourite regular trips.


Google Translate (Free) Android and iPhone

Another must-have freebie, with this app there is no need to download a payable translation or language app. With a vast range of languages and an enormously knowledgeable dictionary, it’s got you covered wherever you are going around the world. You can type or speak for instant translations.


TravelSafe Pro (£0.99) Android

Minimise panic during an emergency situation with this handy app. It has a large database of emergency service numbers for just about every country across the globe. There are even embassy details to help in the incidence of missing passports. Perfect for those travelling to some far end of the world, or the cautious traveller.





TripAdvisor (free) Android and iPhone

Known for its stripped back reviews, this is the place to find out everything you need to know about hotels, restaurants, attractions and more. When you’re trying to find somewhere to go it’s a good place to start, helping you either find a treasured hotspot or steer clear of a true dive.


WhatsApp Messenger (free/£0.69) Android and iPhone

Keep in touch easily with everyone back home without paying the price of international text message costs. Just be sure to connect to WiFi to share your holiday pictures, videos and soundclips. It’s also a great way to stay in touch with any friends you meet whilst you’re out there once you come home.


XE Currency (Free) Android and iPhone

There is no point paying for a currency conversion app when you can download this one for free! Easy to use and completely accurate, it gives you live currency rates across the world. This is particularly handy for world travellers or those who often go away on business trips. It can be used offline too.
