Everyone loves to unwind and unplug on vacation. Nothing’s better than turning on your Out Of Office notification and escaping the stresses of everyday life. But sometimes, technology can help make your vacation go even smoother. Download these five travel apps to make your next trip a breeze!

Hopper

When you’re planning a vacation, one of your first steps (after selecting Casa de Campo as your destination, of course) is booking a flight. Luckily, there are plenty of apps out there to help you find the best possible airfare.

Hopper will let you look at the cheapest dates to fly on a calendar, and will send you push notifications when it’s the best time to buy. The company claims to save travelers up to 40% on airfare, thanks to the way they track and analyze billions of flights.

Duolingo

A trip to the Dominican Republic is a great excuse to brush up on your Spanish! Duolingo is a free app that adds an element of gaming to language learning. It’s a great way to prepare for a vacation, exercise your mind, and have a little fun.

TripIt

The TripIt App is a simple way to organize your travel itinerary, from flights to your Casa de Campo hotel or villa reservation. You can even include dinner reservations, concert and event tickets, and more.

The app pulls in information from your confirmation emails and stores it in one place. You can access all your information offline, which means you can check your itinerary mid-flight or overseas without incurring roaming charges.

XE Currency

The official currency of the Dominican Republic is the Dominican Peso, which can fluctuate in value. Rather than trying to calculate the exchange rate in your head, download the XE Currency app and quickly convert prices to your own currency. You can even access the app offline, making it easy to use while on the move.

Snapseed

These days, many travelers have forgone a traditional camera in favor of the one on their smartphone. After all, you can’t beat the ease and convenience. To take your vacation snaps up a notch, download Snapseed. This popular (and free) photo-editing app will let you custom edit your shots, or add a filter. Unlike other photo apps, Snapseed lets you adjust the color and brightness of just one area of your photo, rather than the entire image.

Once you’ve snapped a few great Casa de Campo vacation photos, post them to Instagram with the hashtag #CasaDeCampoResort. We’d love to see them!

Now that you’ve downloaded these apps, all you need is a reason to use them! Start planning your next great vacation by browsing packages and offers for Casa de Campo.
