apps

Whether we’re on the road or simply slouched up on the couch, our smartphones have become an integral part of our lives. However, our trusty devices can become even more indispensable when we are on the road; there are numerous applications at your disposal that have the capacity to provide you with valuable information in unfamiliar locations. Having been in the transportation industry for quite some time, our Car Service in Nashville has compiled several instrumental apps that can make moving from point A to B quite effortless. We have picked out four of our most favorite apps that you can easily download from your app store before you embark on your next road trip.

HotelTonight

Well, like a lot of other apps, HotelTonight has been programmed to help you make your hotel bookings in a faster, more convenient manner. However, this app stands out from other apps because of the bargains it provides as well as the quality of hotels on its catalog. You can sift through the available options based on a wide range of criteria and you can make bookings for tonight or even next week at the click of a button. For example, you can narrow down on your options based on the level of luxury in each hotel. Once you have identified the hotel you would like to stay in, the app allows you to make your payment immediately; how convenient is that?

Duolingo

Duolingo currently has over 200 million subscribers worldwide, and that many people can’t be wrong, right? Duolingo is an extremely easy-to-use language-learning app, and as much as it is not the best substitute for formal language training, this app is a fun way to get the basics down before your trip to a foreign place. The app works just like a computer game or a mobile phone trivia; you advance through several levels as you gain experience and points along the way, which is an enticing way to push even the laziest traveler to keep learning.

Clarice

This free app is a concierge tool and handy travel guide that offers you suggestions on the best places to visit whether you’re on a family trip, a business trip, a romantic getaway, or on a shopping spree. Clarice comes with mapped routes, a self-guided walking tour, and themed itineraries, for example, the gin lover’s tour in London. The only downside to this app is that it is only available in select cities across the United States and Europe.

XE Currency

This is probably the most convenient currency conversion app in the world, and it is, therefore, no surprise that it has racked up over 30 million users across the globe. The app also has several business-related features. For example, XE Currency displays historic currency charts and shows you real-time rates for precious metals. However, for the regular traveler, it is most useful for its ability to convert any currency both online and offline.
