Adventure holiday expert Exodus has launched a free app to give gap year travellers inspiration on the move.

The iPhone app allows travellers to choose and book adventure holidays as well as interact with others travellers who have booked onto their trip in the Exodus Departure Lounge.

Get all your questions answered with the Live Chat function, which allows you to ask an Exodus expert about your destination.

Discover new highlights on the go with the Augmented Reality function – you can use GPS to find the nearest attractions by simply holding your phone up to the horizon. The app also includes reviews from other travellers, so you know which points are worth exploring and those you should skip over.

Alternatively, if you haven’t decided on what kind of gap year adventure to take yet, then use the new app to get ideas of exciting worldwide destinations.

The Exodus app is available to download from the iTunes app store now.
