5 Apps and Products Every Smart Traveler Needs

These 5 apps and products will help you travel smart

Traveling. It can be great… or harrowing. Wherever your next trip takes you, these 5 apps and products will help make your journey go more smoothly.

OPEN: Hi, I’m Netted’s Michael Charboneau, and this is Netted Does.

INTRO: Remember when people dressed up and traveled in airships? Of course you don’t. That hasn’t happened since the ‘30s. These days, traveling is less glamorous and more stressful, but these 5 tools should help your trip go smoothly.

Corner: You’ve got better things to do than spend hours searching for flights. Corner is an app that color codes your flight options so you can quickly sort through them and book with a few taps.

Rosetta Stone [Sponsored]: When in Rome, do as the Romans do: Speak Italian. Being able to communicate is a huge asset wherever you go, and Rosetta Stone’s software and app will give you the language skills you need to order food, ask for directions, and more. The software is so sophisticated you even get instant feedback on your pronunciation. Bellissimo!

XE Currency: Just as important as learning a language? Knowing the exchange rate. XE Currency will tell you how much cash you need before you touch down in paradise.

Lugloc: What’s the best way to ruin your vacation? Food poisoning. The second best way? Losing all your luggage. Along with your snorkel and underwear, make sure you pack a Lugloc, a device that sits inside your bag and allows you to track its location from your phone.

Flightcar: But your journey doesn’t end at the airport (at least, we hope it doesn’t). Get behind the wheel with Flightcar, a car sharing service that lets you borrow somebody’s ride for your trip. It’s available at airports across the U.S., and it will get you on the road for less than other rental services.

With all these apps in your pocket, who needs an airship?
