By scoping out and downloading your apps before you jet off you can make sure you’re not a holidaying cliché having to stick to the often more expensive, beaten touristy path. If you are looking to ditch your usual diet and try out some local dishes or maybe you just want to save some cash, travel apps can make your holidays cheaper and easier.

Emma Coulthurst of TravelSupermarket said: “You’ve booked your holiday, car hire and sorted your extras like travel insurance and airport parking. But one other way in which you could save yourself both time and money is by doing some research on the best apps for the destination which you’re heading to. Apps can help you find the best restaurants to eat at and the best activities to do while you’re there. Download any apps before you leave for the airport to save on your data allowance.”
