Whenever I travel, I try to keep a budget in mind of how much I want to spend on food, lodging, transportation, entertainment and attractions each and every day. However, it can be difficult to keep up with travel expenses if you simply record them in a notebook or spreadsheet when you have the time. The road can get in the way of properly recording our travel budgets, leaving us unaware when we are spending outside the lines of our budget. Luckily there are a number of travel budget tracking apps that aim to make keeping track of expenses as easy as possible. If you want to keep traveling, spend less and always have an idea of how much money you have on the road, here are three travel expense apps to consider using.
Trail Wallet: Designed for the iPhone, Trail Wallet aims to take the headache out of travel budget recording. Its format is simple. You set a daily budget for your travels. As you travel, you record your expenses every time you open your wallet. The app can tell you exactly where you might be overspending or what category of travel is eating away the majority of your travel funds. The app also provides a breakdown of expenses month by month. Trail Wallet is made by Voyage Travel Apps and costs $2.99.
Bon Voyage Budget and Expenses App: This iPhone/iPad app helps travelers manage their travel expenses and a little bit more. While the app contains the standard travel budget tracker features, it also functions as a bit of a travel organizer. You can set up reminders for certain things you might forget such as hotel check-in times or car rental drop offs. It also contains a travel checklist to help you keep organized. For money watchers, the app allows you to compare your travel budget versus your actual travel expenses to see how well they match up. It features graphs to better visualize expenses. The Bon Voyage Budget and Expenses app costs $1.99.
Travel Budget App: If you need to track your expenses while traveling through a variety of currencies, there is an app for that. The Travel Budget App keeps track of both personal and business travel expenses on the go in around 88 local currencies. You can see how much you are spending around the globe without having to convert these prices yourself. This travel budget expense app is useful for those traveling all around the world, rather than just one set destination with one currency. You can set up a budget for your whole trip or merely just certain categories you struggle with in the spending department. In addition to the actual numbers, you can save photos and receipts to better recall where your funds are going. The Travel Budget App even has a feature to literally map out your expenses on an actual map of where you are to see exactly those spots you spent your cash. The app costs $0.99.
