Are you planning to travel? Well, when it comes to planning a long vacation or even a road trip, your smartphone is the best buddy that can help you to organise the trip or just show you the sights so that you can decide if you do want to go there. From selecting a location to looking out for the best routes possible, and yes, of course, the booking of hotels and eateries to look out for can all be done with the help of a smartphone. However, in the age of the Internet, there is often too much information overload and many times the important parts are lost somewhere. That's where the dedicated apps come into play to help you plan as well as execute the best vacation possible. If the upcoming days on your calendar are booked for a vacation, then know these 5 travel apps that you must have on your smartphone- from Incredible India, PackPoint to Google Maps.

Incredible India

Incredible India App is a project of the Ministry of Tourism to assist International as well as domestic tourists to explore India as a holistic destination. It is a hub of information that revolves around major experiences such as spirituality, heritage, adventure, culture, yoga, wellness and more. You can use the app to know important facts about cities and landmarks in the country.


So, once you have selected your vacation venue, then the most important thing is to pack your essentials before leaving your home. This app helps you remember what to pack for a trip. PackPoint is a free travel packing list organizer and packing planner for serious travel pros. Once your packing list is created, then the app will save it for you and allow you to share it with your friends and family. All you need to do is enter the city you're going to travel to, the departure date, and the number of nights you'll be staying there. And PackPoint will organize a packing list and luggage checklist for your luggage.


Going on a trip and worrying about the hotel bookings? The FabHotels app will help you! It is a budget hotel booking application which will help you find hotel rooms anywhere in India with modern amenities like high-speed free Wi-Fi and an air conditioner among others.

Google Translate

Visiting a city or country has a different language than your native one? Then don't forget to make use of the Google Translate app. You may have just the basic grasp of a foreign language, but even then you can enjoy a fruitful holiday. It will help you translate written text from one language into another. You can even use your phone's camera while pointing towards the information whose translation you need and translated text is here in front of you!

Google Maps

Of course! Google Maps is one of the essential tools even when you are on a short trip or long vacation in some remote area where finding the right route becomes difficult. You can ask for a little help from Google Maps and find your destination. This helps you to get a street view of the location and have prior knowledge of how the place looks and how to reach there. What else? It will alert you about the nearby landmarks which you can explore throughout your journey. And the best part are its step by step audio directions, in case you find difficulty in understanding the map.
