Best Apps When Traveling Abroad

by Janell on October 20, 2017

Planning a trip abroad? If so, don’t miss out on these apps. Designed to enhance your experience while saving money better spent on actual experiences, they’re well worth a try.

Stay in Touch with Viber

Don’t let the high cost of international calling keep you from communicating. Viber is a feature-filled app that works on Android, iOS, and Windows 10 phones. After downloading (free), you can enjoy free features like messaging and video chats, plus you can purchase a pre-paid calling plan. The call plans won’t put much of a dent in your budget; starting at just 99 cents and offering opportunities to talk for just a few cents per minute, they’re even cheaper than old-fashioned pay phones. Viber offers excellent sound quality, and all of your contacts are available as soon as you download. One more benefit: You don’t have to be in a service area or pay pricey roaming fees to use the app. It’s web based, so you can talk from any location where WiFi is available.

Compare Prices with Kayak

Dispense with the lengthy, frustrating web searches: Consider using Kayak to compare prices on lodging, flights, car rentals, and more. This is a free app that works across all platforms, and it does more than simply find deals. You can use it for booking hotels, quickly accessing travel contact numbers, viewing airport information, tracking flights, and more. Kayak can even help you manage your entire itinerary if you like.

I love the holidays! There are so many cool gifts out there to get my family and friends! My kids usually have a long list, but I love to get them gifts that our whole family can enjoy.

We love to play board games. That is one of the best things about having a basement. You can set up games and play whenever you want.

My youngest just turned 7 – so all my kids are at the right age to be able to understand the rules and play the game. (But….there is still some arguing.)  RoosterFin games are great for all ages from kids to grandparents!  Read more…
