Last minute trip? 10 app suggestions to optimize your experience!

The resumption of travel, with the advancement of vaccination, or weekend getaways, while maintaining isolation from the rest of the world, still has one characteristic in common: planning time was reduced with the pandemic – and many last-minute changes accompany travelers.

In this context (and considering that the smartphone is always at hand for most Brazilians), applications have become great allies for tourists. There are the most diverse types in the Android and iOS app stores, helping with planning, choosing a destination, booking hotels, defining the itinerary and much more.

Below, we give ten app suggestions to make traveling more enjoyable – and, whenever possible, spending less!

Yelp – includes tips and reviews from local communities. With it, you can plan in advance which places to visit, where to eat, relax and take incredible photos.
