Weekly Travel App Roundup
Technology is here to stay, so why not take advantage?
I never leave home without my smartphone, and now I can’t even think about going on a trip without my iPad. So, I want to make sure I’ve got everything I need to get from home to vacation with no headaches.
Each month I’ll feature some of the best travel apps that you can use to make sure you are getting the most out of technology to help you to travel.
SimpleVisaThis app is specifically directed at those of you who live outside the United States, but visit it often.
As you may know, if you are from one of the 35+ countries that participate in the Visa Waiver Program, you can apply for an ESTA visa, which allows for travel back and forth from your home country and the US.
But, we all know keeping track of your visa can be a pain. You have to remember when you applied, if you need to updated it, the paperwork, etc. Too much to think about when planning a vacation.
That’s where SimpleVisa comes in.
The app was created specifically to manage your ESTA visa. All you have to do is plug in your passport number and in seconds all of your visa information will be right there for you on your phone.
You will be able to apply for a visa, update your visa, or renew your visa from the app in addition to keeping your passport information handy. Plus, when you go through your pre-boarding security check, you only have to show the visa information from your phone and you’ll be able to pass right through. Quick and easy, right?
SimpleVisa helps to make travel a little bit easier, and who doesn’t love that idea?
