They won't weigh down your suitcase, and you can have everything you need for an organised trip in your back pocket. From guidebooks to itineraries to maps, our top ten iPhone travel apps have one added bonus - they're all free!

Wi-Fi Finder

Access to free or cheap Internet is invaluable when travelling interstate or overseas. This is where the Wi-Fi Finder app comes in handy; this app has listed locations where free or paid Wi-Fi is available for use. Download the location map before you go, so that you won't have to connect until you're within Wi-Fi range.

TripIt

Travel can put your paper itinerary in peril! Threats include food and drink stains, rips from repeated folding, loss along the way, or illegibility from having it squashed in your bag. Alternatively, you could keep your cool with it all on your smartphone. TripIt is a travel organiser where you can store flight, hotel and tour confirmations and sync them with your smartphone's calendar.

TripAdvisor Offline City Guides

If you've ever used TripAdvisor.com, then you'll know how helpful the reviews and city guides from other travellers can be. This app gives you advice and tips for restaurants, attractions, and hotels at your fingertips on the go. Plus, it's all offline so you can avoid data roaming fees if you are travelling overseas.

XE Currency

Keen to barter and get your hands on a bargain? Do it like a local with the XE Currency app. Just punch the amount in local currency into the calculator and it'll instantly convert it to Australian dollars. It works in reverse too, so if you want to set yourself a budget for the day you can work out how much that will be in the local currency.

SeatGuru

There are many apps that let you book flights, but they don't quite tell you where the best seats are onboard the plane. SeatGuru finds low airfares, helps you pick the best seat, and keeps you updated with real-time flight alerts.

Talking Translator

Don't let language barriers get between you and the locals. Talking Translator works by having the person talk into your phone, which it will then translate into English, or vice versa.

Viator Tours & Activities

Viator helps you find and book tours, activities and attractions for your chosen destination or based on your current location. Once you've booked an activity or tour, you don't need to print the voucher, just show the tour guide your eVoucher on your iPhone and you're ready to go. Viator also lets you know about upcoming deals and discounts.

Eventful

Eventful helps you make the most of your trip by telling you about concerts, movie screenings, performances as well as family events that are going on at your destination. Filter the events by selecting your preferences - so you can get alerts just for music events, for example - and the app will use your current location to let you know what's playing nearby.
