  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Travel planning can take quite a lot of work. Here are 10 apps that will help you out, from finding the first inspiration on choosing where to travel to, booking your tickets to get there, finding accommodation and things to do, and getting around once you arrive.

Before a holiday begins, (and as soon as a holiday is over), those with wanderlust will love to spend time with Trover - the ‘visual bucket list’ app that allows you to plan, share, and contribute to a community of like-minded travellers and holidayers.
