The 8 Best Vegan Travel Apps

Vegan travel has its own set of challenges.

As vegan travelers, we're often faced with difficult situations when overseas and a little technology can really come in handy.

It's always best to research local foods as much as possible before visiting a new country, so you have a general idea of what local foods are vegan. You can find our vegan travel guides here.

However, if you're always on the go like us and find yourself in need of a helping hand, these apps have made conscious travel just that little bit easier.

Happy Cow

Happy Cow is one of the most popular vegan travel apps.

The app allows users to filter between vegan-only, vegetarian and restaurants with veg options available.

Overall, the app works well and the veg-options filter can be particularly useful when in non-vegan friendly destinations.

Google Translate

This one might seem a given to some, but this free app from Google can be extremely helpful to vegan travelers.

Whether its quickly typing an order to restaurant staff, or using the camera option to read menus, it can save a lot of hassle.

Sometimes, however, you may get odd results. Once in northern Vietnam I translated Vietnamese menu and the first translation I found was "The Mother In-Law's Womb". Save to say, it didn't sound vegan. And I moved on.

Air Vegan

Most of the time it isn't the foreign country that makes traveling as a vegan more difficult - it's the airports. Air Vegan is designed to tell users which airport terminals have vegan food options.

Terminals are color-coded as follows:

Green = lots of options

Yellow = there's some options

Red = let's hope you don't have a long layover

Trip Advisor

Trip Advisor is one of the most used travel apps, in which travelers get to rate and review restaurants, hotels, and activities.

This means it's an excellent resource, not just for travelers, but for vegan travelers. Simply search "vegan" in a specific location and it will likely return a bunch of helpful reviews.
