From the moment you step off the plane to pick up your rental car until the time you depart for your flight home, traveling to an overseas destination can be a nerve-racking experience. But with today's advanced technology, there are plenty of tools to help you along the way. Try these two noteworthy apps for traveling abroad:


When you arrive in a foreign destination, you may be overwhelmed to hear people speaking an unfamiliar language. Even if you do have a basic understanding of the native tongue, different dialects and thick accents can make holding a simple conversation difficult. The Converse app allows you to translate between several different languages, including French, German, Dutch, Italian and Spanish.

Unit Conversion

If you're not a math wiz, money conversion can be a huge hassle. Unit Conversion is a free app for iOS (though other money currency converters are also available for different platforms) that calculates how much an amount in a foreign currency is in your native land's currency. For instance, you can determine how much your corporate car rental rate in Euros would be in American dollars. The app also converts weight, volume, speed, distance and others.
