Planning and pulling off a fun vacation that’s still affordable is no easy feat. Use a few apps for backup at the beginning, middle and end of your trip.

 

Kayak

First thing’s first, you’re going to need to plan the vacation. Shop around for your flight and browse cruise deals, or bundle. The app keeps everything in your trip together, organized and easily accessible. Kayak compares prices for you, but don’t let that stop you from doing some digging on your own with Booking.com, Priceline, HotelTonight and even Skyscanner.

 

Trail Wallet

Organization is a sneaky key factor in budgeting travel. By having an awareness of how much the trip cost, you can keep tabs on your spending with Trail Wallet. Travelers can track their purchases and expenses in hundreds of currencies.

 

Trip Hobo

TripHobo builds your whole trip itinerary from points of interests and activities you should try, to keeping your budget in check and finding affordable local activities. Check out public transportation routes and save even more on traveling within your destination, or shop by affordable accommodation options.

 

Google Trips

Plan your trip and keep your plans in an organized list while shopping for the cheapest travel options. Book your flight, hotel and get around your destination, all using the app.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes.
