Hey, fellow campers! This one is for you. We use the Dyrt app to find the best campsites. Just search your destination and you can browse all nearby options. You can find prices, phone service info, and campsite features. This is free, but if you're an avid camper, I suggest paying for the pro plan. You can download maps and more to use offline, and there are discounts you get, along with other perks.
Looking for cheap flights? Hopper is a mobile app that's a great tool to use when looking for the cheapest flights no matter where you are traveling to. If you are flexible with your travel plans, you can see when the cheapest flights are. They have a calendar with color-coded dates that show when the cheapest vs. most expensive times to travel are. You can also search for rental cars and hotels to find the best deals.
Especially in places where you don't have phone service and your languages skills aren't the best, Maps Me will come extremely in handy. This app allows you to download maps for specific areas, cities, or even countries. You can remove downloaded maps and download new ones as you travel the world. You can also save locations and get directions; super helpful if you're unfamiliar with a place and language.
