Savvy business travellers know that less is more when it comes to travel. You want to be organised and prepared for you trip, but without the need for various guidebooks or paperwork. Apps can solve your travel woes, as well as addressing problems you didn't know you had to begin with!

Here is a handy list of useful travel apps that can save you time, money and energy!

1. Information
If you find you have some downtime on your trip, leave your often outdated guidebook at home and instead look to recommendations and reviews posted online from fellow travellers.  TripAdvisor has useful offline city guides available in their app for when internet access is limited.  Gogobot, Trippy, Trover, Pinterest and Instagram (search for entries labelled with your destination) are other good sources of up to date information on the go.  The tourist board for the country you are visiting likely has an app to showcase the best that their city has to offer.

Time Buddy and World Clock are also useful apps to have to hand when travelling.

2. Navigation
Make your way around every new destination with Google Maps (you can also save routes offline), Waze, or City Mapper. When heading out for a walk, use the nifty Motion-X GPS to track your route, distance and speed, as well as syncs and geotags pictures you took along the way.

Can't connect to the internet? Go the extra mile with the following navigation apps for offline use: City Maps 2 Go, Maps With Me and OsmAnd Maps and Navigation.


3. Conversion and Money Management
For the latest currency conversion rates and developments, try apps such as XE Currency, Currency FX or Oanda Currency Converter. 

Make unkempt receipts and unaccounted expenses a thing of the past with Receipts pro, which tracks expenses through multiple accounts, records photos of receipts and generates an e-mail report in Excel, PDF, CSV and HTML format.

4. Productivity
Access to important files across all devices is a top priority for professionals on the go.  Popular cloud storage apps include Dropbox and Google Drive.  Perpetual notetakers will love Evernote for personal and business needs.
