Travel App of the Week: GoodRx

GoodRxA lot of people are traveling around America this summer, and God forbid someone gets sick or needs some kind of medicine in an unfamiliar place, this is the app to have. GoodRx not only shows you the closest pharmacy to you—wherever you are in the US—but also finds the cheapest pharmacy to pick up prescriptions at in your area. Most Americans don’t know that prescription prices vary wildly from pharmacy to pharmacy, so this app is a hugely helpful in saving you money. Just type in the name of the drug you were prescribed, enter the area code and compare the costs. It’s that simple. It’s free and available on iOS, on Android and in the Amazon store.

Related: For international travelers I recommend downloading the TravelSmart app from Allianz Global Assistance as it lists emergency numbers such as those of the police, fire department and ambulance by destination (911 is not universal). I also love that it has a drug dictionary with international translations in multiple languages. Did you know the international name for Tylenol is Paracetamolum? It also comes with first aid terms translated into multiple languages. TravelSmart is available on both Android and iOS devices for free.
