No one is traveling right now.


We're all stuck inside, doing our very best to not go stir-crazy and get cabin fever in the process, while attempting to stop the spread of COVID-19.


Times are tough, but we can always use it to plan for a better tomorrow. Given we're likely not spending too much money on things other than bills and food, there's not better time to budget for the trip you'll likely be taking post-coronavirus.


To help you out, we rounded up seven of the best travel budget apps. Check them all out below!

1. Goodbudget


The ultimate budgeting app, Goodbudget makes sure all of your finances are in order in one place.

For example, what you put in your rent envelope will go towards your rent. So when you create a trip envelop, all the money you save will be safely stored there and used when you're ready to jet set off to Paris.
