Technology plays a part in our daily lives, and especially while you’re traveling. From booking flights and accommodation to checking the weather to using a calculator and converting currency, it is nigh on impossible to get any distance without using apps, websites and other technology.
Now, apps on the market can help travelers in so many other ways. Want to find the perfect female travel partner? Need to find a bathroom in a foreign city ASAP? It’s all covered.
I’ve compiled my favorite apps for female travel that you should try on your next trip!
Tourlina is a women-only app that connects fellow travelers wherever they are around the globe. Simply enter your trip and discover a travel companion with mutual interests and trip plans.
You can start to chat, plan your trip together and voila! You’re on the road with a new friend, possibly one you’ll have made for life.
It’s not a dating app–the emphasis is on friendship.
It can be hard to find a travel partner that has the means, the free time, the interests and the destination in sync with your own.
Tourlina cuts straight through by connecting you with like-minded travelers, and they screen each and every new user so that your safety comes first.
TripIt helps organize your upcoming travel itinerary. All you have to do is forward your hotel, restaurant, flight, and car rental confirmation emails to firstname.lastname@example.org and it automatically transfers all the information to your master itinerary, so that you can easily view all your upcoming plans at once.
If you upgrade to the pro version, the company will find you alternative routes for when your flights get canceled, as well as send you automatic notifications from airlines about flight delays, cancellations, and more. If you travel a lot and have a lot of bookings you need to organize, this is the best app to have.
Packpoint is a female traveler’s dream come true. This packing-list generator uses your information to customize a packing checklist for your destination.
Tell the app your gender, where you’re going, the time of year, and any activities you have planned, and it will create suggestions for clothing, essentials, and gear you should take along.
For those app aficionados out there, the best feature is that it can sync with TripIt to obtain personal info and your itinerary!
Safety Map Worldwide
Safety Map Worldwide features maps around the world that will recommend the safest routes, advise you on the best district to travel or stay in, and guide you away from high-crime areas.
Sometimes when you’re traveling, you don’t always know exactly the best place to stay in a new city – this will solve your problems.
You can document your experiences in safe (hopefully not unsafe) areas to help other travelers navigate as well.
The Hostelworld app has does all the usual things you’d expect an accommodatiohin booking app to do — searches, descriptions, filters — and looks particularly good while doing so.
The full-screen interactive map makes it easy to work out whether the hostel you like is anywhere near where you want to be, while those all-important reviews are only a tap away.
Look out especially for reviews by other female travelers. Download hostel world on Google Playstore or Apple Store.
Skyscanner is my preferred method for finding cheap flights.
The mobile app searches millions of flights from over 1,200 sources and then gives you the best options available (whether it’s the cheapest route, or the easiest one).
The handy chart feature lets you look at the cheapest days or months to fly to your destination and sends you notification of price changes.

I hope these apps makes your traveling easier.
