Offline Vacation: Prepare your entertainment through these apps

    You don't always have good internet while on holiday. Do you want to use your smartphone as much as possible? Then you can download your entertainment via these services.

    Read on after the ad.

    Offline vacation without missing anything

    Today we stream almost everything. Logical, because we all have high-speed internet, especially in the Netherlands. That is not always the case on vacation. You can just be lucky that your holiday spot has no WiFi and only a hint of 3G comes in when the wind is right.

    Suddenly you can only use what is currently on your smartphone. With good preparation, this need not be a problem, because you can simply download entertainment on more and more services.

    Video: your favorite series and movies

    Practically all popular video streaming services offer the possibility to download movies and series for offline use. Think of Netflix, Videoland, Disney Plus on Amazon Prime Video.

    Netflix has a large Download button with every series and movie available to save. The series and films can then be found in the Downloads tab. In this section of the app, you will also see the “Find more downloadable titles” button to search for only series and movies that have this download button. Netflix allows you to download up to 100 titles. It differs per title how long you can watch it offline.

    It works similar on Videoland. Only series and movies with a download icon can be downloaded. However, ‘Download to Go' only works with a Plus or Premium subscription. After downloading you have thirty days to watch the series or movie. When you start an episode or movie, you must watch it within 48 hours.

    Music: don't forget your favorite playlists

    We used to carry all our music with us as MP3s, but nowadays we stream everything. Fortunately, it is possible to store music with practically all music services. We have the best music streaming services for your android tested if you haven't made a choice yet.

    But downloading all your music not only takes a very long time, but also fills up your storage space. That is not the intention. That is why it is smart to choose some playlists or albums that you want to enjoy during the holidays.

    With Spotify it is possible to download some personalized playlists, such as ‘On repeat'. Then you know for sure that the songs you liked the most in recent weeks can also be listened to at your holiday destination.

    Podcasts and (audio) books

    With podcast and audiobooks, we are actually already used to downloading them before we listen to them. Still, it can't hurt to check out your favorite audio apps to see if you already have everything. For example, it is wise to keep several (audio) books on your smartphone if you are going to be away for a longer period of time. We put the best podcast apps listed for you.

    Traveling with your smartphone

    You can also continue to use other apps, even if you don't have internet. You have to prepare yourself well. For example, by downloading the map of the area via Google Maps. We explain how this works in the video below:
