Subscriptions you should keep when you go traveling

Subscriptions to apps can be expensive but on a monthly plan, they can work out to be affordable and worth it, especially if you use the app often to get your money’s worth. Listed below are some subscriptions that are worth keeping, even if you travel abroad.

1. Insurance

One of the most important things to maintain when you leave home is your health and travel insurance. Some countries can be expensive if you happen to find yourself in an emergency room, so keeping up your insurance payments is worth it in case something untoward and unexpected happens to you or your traveling partner. If all goes well on your travels you will never need it but it is a good thing to have to give you peace of mind, no matter where you go.

2. Netflix

This is definitely one to keep because no matter where you go in the world you can log into your Netflix account on any smart TV, your phone or if you have your laptop with you. Netflix allows you to use multiple devices on your account and something is comforting about being in a completely different country and still being able to log into your account and view your favorite TV shows. Netflix also allows you to download shows and movies that you can watch while offline for a limited time.

3. Spotify

Having music with you can help you feel more familiar with a location or give you some comforting memories of the places you have been. Spotify is a great app for music and has thousands of music playlists, all of which can be personalized. If you keep your subscription up, you can enjoy all your favorite songs no matter where you are in the world. Music is an important part of the human condition so having an app like this is beneficial to keep you sane and ultimately enjoying yourself.

4. VPN

Online theft is a big issue these days. Hackers and thieves find increasingly devious ways to try and get your personal information such as credit card numbers and passwords. A good VPN app can help prevent this from happening by accessing a server in another country, making your device seem to be in a completely different location. A VPN also allows you to access content that would be otherwise unobtainable depending on the country you are in. If you choose to bet on NBA online, for example, a VPN can make this happen in a country that would otherwise not allow it. Some countries also do not stream certain tv shows, films or sporting events depending on the region but using a VPN circumnavigates that issue.

5. Cloud storage

Even if you have a laptop or computer and multiple external storage devices, things can go wrong. Hard drives can fail, laptops can malfunction and there is a possibility of losing your precious data. Keeping an account with apps like Flickr and iCloud can give you peace of mind by knowing that any photos or documents you hold dear are being kept on a cloud and are backed up. If you create an account and pay a little bit extra, you have even more space to keep your data and as it is online, it is available anywhere that has an internet connection.
