Best apps to use when traveling
Traveling during the holidays can either be a hassle or incredibly convenient, or even both. It’s a good thing that these days, we now have apps and platforms that help improve our convenience when going out of our homes and allow us to actually enjoy the holidays we booked out. Apart from the usual Waze, Google Maps, and the like, we listed down other apps that could aid you in your travels. Check them out!
Booking accommodations have gotten easier thanks to Airbnb. If you prefer to rent vacation homes rather than hotel rooms, this platform will be able to help you out with its listings. You can search for rentals by its price, neighborhood, amenities, and the like. The app works not only in the Philippines but across the globe as well.

One of the worst things ever is having that urge to do a Number 2 but end up in a restroom that’s unclean, has no bidet, or no tissues at all. San Bidet aims to solve that problem by offering places in the Philippines that have clean restrooms and are equipped with the ever-elusive bidet.
