Everyone loves travelling abroad, but sometimes travel is a hassle due to inconveniences. Here are the top 3 apps you must have before you go abroad.
Splitting and settling travel expenses: Splitwise
Travelling around specially with friends is fun. But maintaining an account of expenditure, paying and settling is a lot of fuss and can ruin all the fun. For trips where you don’t want accounts to be an issue- try splitwise. It’s simple and it’s easy. All your expenses are orgnised in one area. You can split the expenses with everyone or only certain people and smart pay helps make the whole process easier altogether.
The best part – it saves you the embarrassment of reminding your friends they owe you- it does that itself via email.
For phone calls: Rebtel
Skype and Whatsapp are perfect apps to use for calling when you are away from home. Except for one thing – you need the internet to use them. Which is why, Rebtel – The app doesn’t require internet or phone cards. It lets you make affordable phone calls anywhere in the world by hijacking local lines for the best available calling price.
For secure internet: Tunnel Bear
Tunnel Bear is a VPN that allows you to avoid internet filtering.If you want to visit a site but the country you are in doesn’t let that happen by blocking it, Tunnel Bear lets you connect your VPN to a country that allows free access to a site you want to visit.
Importantly, it also helps keep your internet connection secure while abroad – which is worth it if you connect to lots of random Wi-Fi spots. VPNs hide your IP address and location. So you can access blocked content while overseas.
