If you are thinking of travelling internationally, you might want to carry some kits besides installing great travel apps. These kits include Apple Camera Connector Kit which allows you to take digital photos and transfer them to the iPad in case you feel like sharing them with others in the course of your travels. The other is Apple World Travel Adapter Kit which is used to charge your iPad in a number of international locations. Don’t forget to also pack some informational guides that will help you gain insight of the culture of the place that you are visiting and other useful information that you might not find online. For sure, iPad app development has come a long way; here are some friendly iPad Apps for international travel are listed below:

Travel Tracker Pro

This app is one app that you should check out. This app allows you to plan your entire international travel itinerary. It has features such as calendar mirroring, push notifications, expense tracking, Tripit integration, weather conditions and currency exchange rates. A few more features you will obtain are the ability to snap photos of receipts, zooming on maps of your destination and database of airports worldwide.

Trivago

This app is great especially if you are travelling to Europe. This free iPad app contains the largest price comparison database covering Europe. It contains a list of roughly over 400,000 hotels and inns on 100 different websites. Though you cannot book anything using it, it is great for comparing prices.

Booking.com

This is one of the few iPad apps that lets you conduct your bookings using it. You can scroll through a list of 105,000 hotels; look at the best photos, reviews, prices and then securely book for your room. Other compelling features include the ability to scour for the nearby hotels as well as sort and filter. The good thing about this app is that it is free.

FlightTrack Pro

This app is an offshoot of the wildly popular iPhone travel app known as TripIt. It enables you to plan your entire trip, track the exact location of your flight, look at the airport weather and even check for flight delays. Another compelling feature is that; when connected to A Wi-Fi or 3G network, it can keep you updated on departure and arrival gates and delays whilst on the road.

Kayak HD

This great app allows you to locate flights, get rates, explore hotels, car rentals, and cheap flights and plan your entire itinerary using a feature known as “Explore”. With this feature, you can obtain flight information based on your budget by entering that information into the app. You should however note that this free app doesn’t allow you do the bookings using it. Instead, it redirects you to another website where you can do that. While this might seemingly be an inconvenience, take heart in the fact that you can do all that from just one app.

Weather+ Free

This app helps you check the weather in your destination. Besides this, this iPad app fills you with weather forecasts and instant weather updates, has a world clock and lists temperature information in both Celsius and Fahrenheit.

Yelp

Yelp has a useful iPad travel app that can help you search for nearby restaurants, gas stations, shopping and entertainment centers.  With this free Yelp iPad app, you can also use its mapping system to determine your location and use it to get you to where you want to go.
