5 free travel apps you shouldn’t leave home without

On your vacation, iPads and smartphones are often as important as your luggage! Not only can you keep in touch with your family while you’re travelling, but the travel apps that you can install (often for free), take make planning your vacation easier. Planning a cruise or sightseeing tour? Don’t leave home without installing these 5 free travel apps for seniors.

Guides by Lonely Planet

Lonely Planet Guides App

Lonely Planet has long been the authority on destination information and travel advice. Their app offers all of the detailed and trustworthy information you can find in their popular books and website, but in convenient app form. Easy to use offline maps, activity finder and city guides are available for destinations including New Orleans, New York City, London, Chicago and Washington D.C. Free. Download for Android or download for iPad


Trip Advisor travel app

Even if you have used a travel agent to book your vacation, TripAdvisor can come in handy to learn more about the destination that you are visiting, especially when it comes to finding activities or restaurants. Find out the top rated things do to (and those worth taking a pass on) as well as find the best places to eat at. Turning on the location services is perfect for those times when you want to grab a quick bite to eat or a quiet place to have tea or coffee…TripAdvisor will help you find the perfect spot in a snap. Free. Download for Android. Download for iPad.

Pack Point

Pack Point travel app for seniors

If you’re making a list and checking it twice (or three and four times), the PackPoint Travel Packing List app is going to be your next favourite app. Simply tell the app where you’re going, how long you’re staying there and the types of activities you play on doing, and PackPoint will make your list for you…then check off items as you put them in your suitcase. Share your packing list with friends or family, perfect if you’re going on a group vacation. The only thing that would make this app better is if it did the packing for you. Free. Download for Android. Download for iPad.

Postagram Postcards

postagram postcard app for seniors

The problem with the postcards you find in convenience stores and gift shops when you’re on vacation is that…well, they look like postcards you find in convenience stores and gift shops. The pictures on them are often bland and generic and make you wish there was a way to send your friends and family back home a more personal keepsake. That’s where Postagram comes in! This app can take any image from your iPad or smartphone and turn it in to a beautiful postcard you can mail to your loved ones. Free download, additional charges for mailing postcards. Download for Android. Download for iPad.


travel diary app

Think of journey as your modern day travel diary. With this app, bring together your photos, maps and special notes in one place on your tablet or iPad, then share them on Facebook. If you’re travelling with a companion, you can both contribute to the same Journi entry (and imagine how much fun a group Journi would be!). Recently updates to the app have improved battery life, a great touch for those travel days where you can’t recharge your device. Free. Download for Android. Download for iPad.

    Hi Wilma,

    We can certainly arrange for a taxi to pick you up at your home in Strathroy and be taken to our coach pickup point in London. Our Connections Program makes it easy for guests to join our tours by arranging door-to-door service or arranging pre-tour accommodation. Many guests join our tours from the surrounding London area and take advantage of this program. If you would like more information about our Connections Program or any of our vacations, one of our Reservations Agents would be happy to speak with you!


    Have a great day and we hope to hear from you again soon!

    Hi Gordon,

    Thank you for contacting us! Cruising is a fantastic and exciting way to travel and a great way to meet fellow travellers. Most vacation packages have different per person prices for doubles and singles. DeNureTours understands the challenges that single travellers face so we provide a matching service to assist single travellers lower their tour cost. When you contact our Reservations Department to book a vacation, you can request to be matched with another single traveller. If there is someone on your departure that also wants to be matched, we would provide you with their contact information. From there you can contact them and determine if travelling together is something you both want.

    If you would like to speak with someone about our matching program, you can speak with one of our Reservations Agents by calling 1-800-668-6859.

    Thank you again for contacting us and we hope to hear from you soon!
