App to Manage Your Money Transfers
Carrying too much money on yourself is something I would never recommend while travelling. Managing your money efficiently is a very important part of a trip. People tend to overspend on vacations and regret it later. I have a useful tip to make sure that you don’t overspend. Make a strict plan and only bring money that will get you through the trip. If you need more money, you can ask a friend of a family member to send money to India online with the help of the Western Union app. Being fast, easy, and convenient to use, you don’t have to worry about the anything as the app has $0 transfer fee.
Get from One Place to Another
If you are going on a short trip, it’s better to use transport apps rather than using the local transport system or renting a car. Uber is now available in most cities of India and has a very good customer satisfaction rate. Another service that is popular amongst the local community is Ola Cabs which offers a very wide range of vehicles such as private cabs, auto rickshaws, bikes, and premium cars. With the RedBus app,you can travel intercity through buses, and if you want an affordable way to travel between different cities, you can use IRCTC connect.
Every person looks for the most comfortable place to stay in the cheapest way possible. Airbnb is one of the top grossing accommodation apps that lets travelers stay in local homes. It is the most popular choice amongst travelers as you get the benefit of mingling with the locals and learn new things. If you are looking for a more lavish stay, Oyo Rooms have a very good standard of air conditioned and well maintained rooms for staying.
