Some of the easiest travel tips for vegans are to download these two apps before you ever begin your travel planning.
Happy Cow is an app for sharing and finding restaurants, cafes, food trucks etc that have vegan options or are fully vegan, anywhere in the world. This is particularly helpful when travelling with meat eating friends as you are able to find places that cater to both! People leave detailed reviews and photos for you to see so you are able to find the perfect place for you to eat. You can put in the exact location of where you are staying and see what food options are close by for you! The search option has filters such as outdoor seating, wi-fi, accepts credit card and opening hours, all of which are incredibly helpful when travelling.
Before you head off, check out whats around in your destination and plan out some places you want to eat at. This will save you lots of time when you are tired and hungry after a big day of exploring!
Fussy Vegan is another great app but is currently only suitable for use in Australia, Canada, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, NZ, UK and USA. This app allows you to scan the barcode of a product and will tell you if it is vegan or not. You can also search for a product or browse through each country food chain menus to find something vegan. This is super helpful is you are looking for snacks in a convenience store or buying groceries to make a meal in your hostel.
