It can get very difficult to get around a country when you’re not aware of the language. Especially, when you plan to use public transportation or roam around the city on your own you could get lost easily. Although learning Spanish before your vacation might be useful, but there’s an even better way to solve this problem – just download google translate. Neither do you have to memorize the language nor do you have to carry a book around to understand it? All you need is an app, that helps you translate any language at any time. This is a must-have app for visiting Spain or any other country for that matter.

Especially, if you’re visiting Spain during Spring or Summer, then you must know how scorchingly hot the weather is. This will help you plan your day better and you can choose where to go accordingly. El Tiempo is an extremely useful app that you must-have for visiting Spain.

No matter how much we prepare we end up not having sufficient cash on us during our vacation. This can be really frustrating and time-consuming. You’ll have to figure out the exchange rates of the country you’re in with those back home and several other things. It’s true that there are several currency apps that can help you with this, but not every app is efficient and reliable. That’s why we recommend the XE Currency app as it is easy to use, it’s faster, it’s reliable and you can use it without having an internet connection. So, what more can you ask for? This is surely a must-have app for visiting Spain.
