Top 5 Travel Apps for Business Travelers


It started as a buzz phrase and morphed into a tagline. However, these days, there literally is an app for that. But with more than 2 million apps available on the Apple Store and 2.2 million apps available for Android, we start to question if quantity overrides quality.

Despite the information overload, some apps are still legitimate travel hacks. Below, five of the best travel apps for business travelers worth downloading for your next trip.

1) Bravolol

For the international traveler who only speaks one language, Bravolol is your lifesaver. While the phrasebook is limited to basic vocabulary, the app pronounces phrases and offers phonetic spelling for new words.

And thanks to its diverse offering of 13 languages—including Spanish, German, French, and Chinese—consider it your digital Rosetta Stone.

2) Citymapper

Citymapper helps commuters get to where they need to be—no matter the method of travel. Using mobile and open transport data from big names such as Google, Apple, OpenStreetMaps, Yelp, Uber, and Car2Go, the app offers detailed journey planning information, including real-time updates, ride share integration, and cycling routes.

While it’s only available in 30 cities, most major metropolises are covered—and more are on the way. For the right person, Citymapper is one of the best travel apps on the market.

Taking weather, length of travel, destination, and planned activities into consideration, PackPoint eliminates the guesswork and last-minute stress from traveling.

4) GasBuddy

Whether you regularly rent cars, or drive a truck for a living, you know that gas prices are as predictable as the weather. Meet GasBuddy, your new best friend.

By providing a virtual gas price forum, the app allows users to locate the nearest gas stations and lowest fuel prices in real-time—no matter where they’re located.

Designed for the road warrior, GasBuddy saves you precious time and money.
