No one can live without their smartphone nowadays , including us. We love to explore and wander, but I travel best when I can look something up quickly. There are more travel apps out there than ever and these are by far the best free travel apps of 2024!

These (travel) apps could make your next journey a little faster, cheaper and smarter!

Google Trips

Coming in at number 1, is the travel app from Google. It basically makes it a lot easier for you to plan your trip. Beforehand or when you are on the spot. Besides finding the usual “things to do”, you can also find travel details like reservations and confirmation numbers in one easy app. Google Trips simply gathers your travel information from Gmail and Inbox, then organizes it automatically. Plus, the entire app is available offline. Bye bye wifi hassle. Find out more here

Once Upon

When you return from your holiday or travel adventure, you’re often left with a overfull photo book on your smartphone. This is where Once Upon comes in handy. Collect your best photographs and create a printed photo book, right from your phone! You can create as many memories as you want, as your books are saved in your personal account. The layout options are stylish that vary from classic to modern, so you’re left with a beautiful photo book by Once Upon you can be proud of.

Beat that killer jetlag by using this (partially) free app. It tells you when you should sleep, when you should seek the light, walk and it tracks your sleep patterns. You can use Timeshifter for your first trip, and if you like it you pay €9,99 per month. Great for people who travel far and beyond more than 4 times a year.


Not everybody can effort a room at the Poseidon Undersea Resort in Fiji or The Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong, therefore this app is perfect for you. Search and book more than 30,000 properties in over 180 countries, from anywhere. Read millions of hostel reviews from fellow travelers & book your next adventure via this app. Get to budget travel in an instance here
