Top 10 best travel apps

Travel apps have become very useful tools and almost mandatory in our travels, since in addition to saving time they allow you to better enjoy the experiences and discover new places based on the comments of millions of users.

While you are traveling to Peru you may need to keep communication. That’s why you may need to use one of our mobile phone plans for tourists to avoid high roaming costs. In order to make a nice trip here in PeruSIM, we will show you some of the best apps for travel.


Our favorite travel app that allows you to download free maps of both countries and cities, where you can go marking the points you want, both tourist, such as restaurants, transport, hotels, places with wifi, and can even book through Booking, another app that we recommend, which is undoubtedly a great advantage, having everything at your fingertips and also to be able to use it offline.

To all this we must add that it can be used as GPS. And we will tell you that after using it, it is one of the best we have used!

2. Rome2rio

Our go-to app for route planning on trips. Just enter the city of origin and destination and it will show you all the transport options, including prices, names of companies, links to them…etc.

3. Tripadvisor

Another travel app that we use the most, both when we are traveling and in our daily lives. We use it when we are looking for references of a restaurant or hotel. It also has a good integrated GPS that allows you to reach the place without getting lost.

4. Hoteltonight

Application with which you can get hotels, including high category hotels, a week ahead, at a very affordable price, saving up to 70%.

With it you can enjoy luxury hotels at very affordable prices. The application is simple and intuitive.

5. TravelSafe Pro

A very useful app when you travel. It gives you information about any emergency services in the destination country offline.

It gives you the addresses and also the phone numbers of the embassy, consulate, ambulance, fire or police, so you can call them at any time and in any crisis situation with just one click.

6. Google Translate

Another one of our favorites. It allows you to translate any text from any language. Very useful in countries like China, Japan or Russia where English is not exactly the most used language.

Very recently they have added a top option: a reader that scans with the camera of your cell phone whatever you put in front of it, translating it into the language you want.

Incredibly useful for translating restaurant menus, posters or transport tickets.

7. XE, one of the best travel app

A very simple but also very useful travel app that allows you to make the currency conversion with the current exchange rate in a very fast way. No more calculators with it.

8. CityMaps2go

Another of our favorite travel apps. It allows you to download free maps by countries, regions or cities where you can mark the points you want to visit, including hotels or restaurants (you have 99.9% of what you are looking for), and then use it offline.

They have maps of almost everywhere, so it is very useful when you do not have a connection, being able to use it as a real GPS.

If you want to download unlimited maps you need, the application costs 4.99 euros.

9. Rain Alarm

The weather is unpredictable. We have tried many applications to avoid the rain, which is very annoying when you travel, but none has such an amount of hits as to name it in this list of the best travel apps. Rain Alarm is the exception, although the forecast is for a few hours, it shows you with its radar where it is raining and if the clouds are approaching your position.

10. Flight Track 5

This mobile application lets you know the status of your flight in real time, knowing at the moment if the flight has been canceled or delayed and even shows you the boarding gate. It also allows you to follow the route of the plane at all times.

Finally, we know that you have to keep communication with your relatives and friends, that you need to be able to orient yourself in new cities, that you might need help with translation and that you might need to search for restaurants or hotels. That’s why with PeruSIM you can buy a SIM card including the data plan of your need without having to worry about high roaming costs.
