We live in a world dominated by apps and easy access. We use apps to find our way around, order food, shop, entertain ourselves, organize schedules, etc. They make our lives easier and so much more convenient. Travel is no exception. Apps can make planning and executing your student trip a breeze! These are our picks for the 5 best travel apps to simplify your student trip.

5 Best Travel Apps to Simplify Your Student Trip

1. Remind

Remind lets you communicate faster with real-time messaging for the group. You can schedule reminders or provide updates to the itinerary as needed.

2. MyTSA

MyTSA app is a super helpful resource for groups traveling by air.  It gives travelers up-to-date airport info (including how busy your airport might be!) along with tips for what to pack and how to prepare for screening.  It’s great for first-time flyers or seasoned travel pros!

3. TravL

One of our favorite apps for student groups is TravL. TravL is a one stop shop designed to keep your trip on track.

Update your itinerary in real time, manage chaperones and rosters, send group messages, and share your favorite trip photos.

Pro Tip: Get in Parent Mode!

Stay connected with the important people at home using “parent mode.”  This function allows parents to see schedules, enjoy photos, and get messages during the trip.  Peace of mind has never been so easy to achieve!

4. GroupMe

GroupMe is an app that works on every device and functions like a private chat room for your group. It’s free group messaging for quick updates and alerts – perfect for traveling student groups.

5. Cluster

Cluster is a simple, user-friendly app that can create group text threads with photos, videos or all-important messages. Members are by invitation only, keeping your communication private.
