The 8 Best Vegan Travel Apps in 2023

Vegan travel can be a challenge - luckily... there's an app for that!

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

With the rise of veganism and more people looking for vegan food options on their travels, it's becoming increasingly important to have the right tools to make sure you're eating plant-based meals wherever you go. Luckily, there are plenty of vegan travel apps available to help you find vegan restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores in any city you visit.

So, if you're always on the go like us, here are the top vegan travel apps of 2023 and how they can help make your vegan travel adventures even easier.

1. Happy Cow

Happy Cow is one of the most popular vegan travel apps. The useful app allows users to filter between vegan-only, vegetarian, and restaurants with veggie options available.

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

We highly recommend this app.

2. Google Translate

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

Whether it's quickly translating 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 the 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.

3. 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 are some options

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

4. 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.

5. Veganagogo

Veganagogo has pre-written questions and statements translated into the language of your choice to make communication in foreign languages easy.

It's a faster way than typing into Google Translate.

Get it here.

6. Meetup

7. Foodsauras

Foodsauras is a multi-purpose app focused mostly on vegan food shopping. The app translates food labels into your language of choice.

All the content is available offline, which is great if you don't have local data.

8. VCards

This vegan travel app works similarly to Veganagogo, except it translates the definition of veganism into 100 different languages.

A flash of your phone to restaurant staff and you'll be set.

With the help of these apps, vegans can easily find vegan-friendly food and recommendations everywhere they go and make their travel experience enjoyable and stress-free.
