Add Google Translate to your phone right now (we’ll wait). You can write characters from different languages or take photos of signs and have them translated in seconds 🤯 You can also have a conversation translated into more than 50 languages, even when you’re NOT connected to the internet.
Living a champagne lifestyle on a beer budget? We get it! 🥂 And that’s where LoungeBuddy comes in handy. If you don’t have gold status on your frequent flyer card, but want a luxe experience between flights, LoungeBuddy lets you pre-purchase passes into airport lounges from around the world so you don’t have to slum it on your next layover.
If you’re like us and leave your packing to the last minute, then you know the pain of forgetting must-have items like, oh… you know, your passport! 😱
But forget no more with PackPoint. It helps you pack based on the length of your trip, the weather at the destination and what you’ll need for any activities planned. You can even share your list with your travel buddies. It’s like the app version of your mum reminding you not to forget to pack enough undies. Thanks, Mum!
Beat jetlag with the help of a neuroscientist… really. Each trip is different, so Timeshifter personalises your jetlag recovery using leading research and notifies you of the important stuff, like when to avoid coffee, when to soak up the sun and exactly when you should go to sleep – not that you’ll listen to it 😈
It’s made by scientists, so you know it’s legit, and even used by astronauts 🚀
