Packing can be one of the most stressful parts of travelling, no matter how seasoned of an adventurer you are. Figuring out what to bring and what to leave can be time consuming; and you still might forget something important at the last minute. This app takes all the annoying guesswork out of the whole process, and will generate a list of packing suggestions after you answer some questions about your trip like your destination, what time of year it is and what you plan on doing. After that, you can follow the list and make sure you pack all of your essentials in your Rise Gear luggage.

Tripcase is one of the best travel apps, particularly for people who travel frequently. It gives users the ability to organize multiple flights, hotel reservations and other plans all in the same places. It keeps track of itineraries so everyone can stay in the loop on their own terms. By forwarding the conformation to an email address, the app will constantly alert you to any changes, no matter how minor or major they may be - such as flight delays or cancellations. This is perfect in situations where family members want to have access to your travel information in case of an emergency, and to anticipate changes like take off and landing times if they need to coordinate their own schedule with that of the traveller.

It allows you to map out your destination and path so the app can suggest restaurants, gas stations and places to rest that will pop up along the way.

While it shouldn't be used instead of your GPS, it's a great additional app to use to give a bit more information about the pit stops that will be around while headed to your final destination.
