Travelling to a new city can be exhilarating, but coordinating the logistics can be a pain if you're not prepared.

Can't find the restrooms in an airport terminal? Google Maps can show you a detailed layout. Searching for hotels in a specific area? You can find accommodation on the map and book in-app. Forgot to turn on international roaming? Download your map and itinerary so you can access it offline, too. Stress less: Here are six little-known ways to use Google Maps next time you travel.
