In this month's mag, FHM shows you how to pack like a pro with the greatest bits of kit, tech and toys that every man needs to take on holiday.

Luckily, in this day and age, you don't need to worry about forgetting your phrasebook or cramming your entire CD collection into your carry-on (remember those?) We've chosen 5 brilliant apps that are almost as essential as your passport:

 

When you're lost for words…
Pop a phrase into the app and hear it translated into one of 80 languages.
Google Translate, free on iOS and Android

 

When you've got a thirst on…
Fancy a pint on foreign shoes but don't know where to go? Untappd allows you to find top beers and boozers nearby.
Untappd, free on iOS and Android

 

When you want to start the party...
Avoid stitch-up data roaming fees by setting up a Spotify premium account and saving all your favourite tracks, albums and playlists to offline mode. All the music in the world, wherever you are in the world.
Spotify, free on iOS, Android and Windows Phone (requires premium account, £9.99 a month)

 

When you're totally skint…
However well you work out how much cash you need to take on your trip, you'll inevitably find yourself short when you're most in need. Find a nearby ATM in any of 220 countries with this super-useful app.
PinPin ATM finder, free on Windows Phone

 

When you're out in the sun...
To avoid turning all lobster, apply Sunscreen to your phone. It tells you the UVI rating at your current location and when you're due to slop on more lotion.
