Even a seasoned traveler can feel disoriented when exploring a new location for the first time. Luckily, in this day and age, you don’t need to look farther than your phone for the solution – whether it’s help with what to pack, how to navigate the best dining spots, where to get your caffeine fix, or simply where to stay. Read on to discover Savoir Flair’s roundup of the 11 best travel apps to download, all of which will bring you one step closer to becoming the intrepid globetrotter that you always imagined yourself to be.



Not only can you find the best deals on hotels and vacation homes at radically reduced prices, but you can also book them instantly from your phone. Jetsetter is a must-have app for travelers on the go.

Pack The Bag

Keep your packing efforts to a minimum with the savvy Pack The Bag app. It lists 650 common baggage items across 26 categories so that you can create a packing list with the touch of a screen. The provided categories can be edited, allowing you to personalize and perfect the packing process.

Stylebook allows you to upload all of the items in your closet and acts as your personal stylist. By knowing your travel destination and the category of attire you will require (like work, evening, formal, or vacation), it will group your clothes into stylish combinations. If that sounds like a hassle, just remember that, once you’ve taken the time to upload the images, this app will be the gift that keeps on giving in many an outfit rut.

Foodspotting allows you to plan your trip based on your meal cravings – and seriously, what’s better than that? Plus, you can read reviews and see what the dishes look like as the app is powered by people who take and upload photos of food, thus letting your eyes be the judge.
