Earlier this week I wrote about the importance of apps for a road trip. I thought it would be good to share some of my favorite free road trip apps to give you an idea of where to start.
Top 5 Free Road Trip Apps (according to Amber)
5: Road Ninja
Find restaurants, gas stations and points of interest near every highway exit. You can also see real-time gas prices.
4: Sky Map
Downloads available for: Android.
Whether you’re camping out or just taking a midnight stroll this app is a must have. Sky Map uses GPS data, compass data and the date/time to display planets and constellations able to be seen where you are.
3: Hotels by Me
No matter the reason this app shows you real-time pricing and availability for nearby hotels. You’ll also have ratings from TripAdvisor to help make your decision.
Downloads available for: iOS.
The biggest secrets are usually the most coveted. This app finds those obscure attractions and shops along your route.
Eating is one of my favorite parts of a road trip. This app lets you make a reservation no matter where you are. The only downside I’ve noticed is that a restaurant needs to opt in to be part of the service. Hopefully more will jump on board. You can search for available locations by price, cuisine and rating.
