Top Travel Apps for the Locum Tenens Provider

One of the many perks of being a locum tenens provider is having the opportunity to travel the nation. However, navigating unfamiliar airports and a city come with their own set of unique challenges. Here are some apps that can help you get you to your gate, update your travel plans with loved ones, and feel like a local in your new city.


An award- winning app that helps keep your sanity while traveling through airports. Upload your itinerary to GateGuru and the app will map out your closest restaurants, cafes, and gift shops, including reviews and tips from other travelers. The app will even keep you posted on real-time updates to your itinerary such as security wait times, flight delays, gate changes, or layover adjustments.


A great tool for frequent travelers, this app allows users to organize multiple flights, hotel reservations and plans in one place. Users can also follow along with each other’s itineraries, allowing families or friends to keep tabs on someone’s travel, without constant updates.


Featuring downloadable maps and guides to over 7,000 destinations around the world, this application is great for when you don’t have an internet connection as maps can be pre-loaded onto a phone. The app also features articles and suggestions for destination, if you’re interested in a more robust itinerary.

Field Trip

Before travelling to a new city, it never hurts to seek out locals who can offer suggestions of favorite restaurants and attractions that may be off the beaten path. Field Trip, made by Google, is designed to send you by way of pop-up cards, short blurbs about unique, sometimes-hidden locations as you pass them. You can customize Field Trip to show frequent or occasional notifications, and you can turn on an audio option that will speak the title and description of  the spot. Restaurant reviews and coupons for discounts show up as you pass by, as well as historical cards. Once you find spots that you like you’re able to save them for future reference.

After all that traveling and site seeing, a good night’s sleep is in order. Help increase your productivity and efficiency with over 6,000 sounds, ranging from wind chimes, ran, crickets, white noise, washing machines, and many more. You can choose the best sounds to help you fall asleep, reduce stress, and ensure you wake up rested and ready to begin your day.
