1. Trail Wallet (Free)

This one will help bring out your organised side, whilst helping you not stir (too far) from your travel budget. Planning your budget trip by trip and day by day, this app lets you set budgets in your home currency. Inputting the local currency of the place you are in will then help you figure out how much of your home currency you are spending. One by one, you add in your expenses, putting together a detailed account of where your money is going!

2. XE Currency (Free)

XE Currency is useful as it calculates currencies on the go using live exchange rates. This is especially useful if you are visiting a number of countries with different currencies to be able to keep everything in check, and also, to make sure you are not getting ripped off when exchanging currencies!

3. Maps.Me (Free)

maps.me is home to detailed offline maps of the whole world. When you have an Internet connection, you can download the map of the place you're in, which can later be used offline. Moreover, you can search for a variety of things and obtain directions without having to go online; such as food, parking, petrol, wifi, banks and entertainment venues.

4. Packpoint (Free)

Packpoint is a smart packing list app which organises what you need to pack based on the duration of your travel, the weather at your destination and any activities planned during your trip.

Here’s a tip: When inputting Malta as your destination, write ‘Valletta’, as when you type ‘Malta’, the main choice is the town in Saratoga County, New York (where we PROMISE there isn’t as much sun!)

5. Circa - (€4.49)

Circa is a great app for anyone who is visiting a series of countries with a variety of time zones. Circa keeps track of time across places and time zones, helping to make things like planning Skype calls easier. You can calculate time by having a diagram of home, where you are and the next place you are going.
