5 Apps For Post-Covid Travel
The travel world changed massively in the past year-and-a-half. And it’s still changing! With people getting back in the travel swing of things this summer, our smartphones have become even more important for exploring responsibly. These apps will help you stay safe and sane during your vacations this year.
CDC Mobile App
Most of us have gotten very familiar with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) over the past several months. The CDC has been a source of reliable information throughout the pandemic. And with the CDC mobile app, you get 24/7 access to timely, vital health info and updates, wherever you go. For kids, check out the CDC’s Health IQ, an interactive, educational, and fun health trivia app.
Traveling is perhaps even more stressful than ever before in 2021. That’s why Headspace is a great resource. The app offers hundreds of bite-sized meditation sessions, perfect for when you’re on the go. And if you’re really in need of help, Headspace also has “SOS” sessions for when things get to be a bit too much.
Google Maps is obvious — the app has been helping travelers navigate unfamiliar destinations for a long time now. But the Maps app has been enhanced to become even more essential in 2021. Google Maps now offers a “layering” option that provides critical information about COVID-19 cases in an area so you can make more informed decisions about where to go and what to do.
New health restrictions and safety regulations at airports are frequent now. It can be hard to keep up with the latest! But the Airsiders Compass health app makes it much easier, providing up-to-date info on the various measures that airports and airlines have taken to ensure you fly with ease and peace of mind.
If you’re anything like us, you fell back in love with the outdoors in 2020. Komoot is ideal for keeping that love affair fresh, pointing you to the nature’s best-kept secrets. The app offers personalized adventures (hiking, biking and beyond), easy navigation for the world’s most epic outdoor experiences, and much more.
