Top 5 Apps For A Road Trip Adventure

When the summertime comes around not much beats a road trip adventure with your pals. Whether you’re cruising across America or exploring the beauty of Europe, don’t forget to download these handy apps before you set off.

1. GasBuddy

GasBuddy is just what you need when heading out on the open roads. With this application, you can locate gas stations and compare prices to get the best deals. If you’re on a budget, GasBuddy can help you to steer clear of pricey gas stations. The app has information on 150,000+  stations. You can use it to improve fuel economy and get discounts from retailers such as Murphy or Circle K. With GasBuddy you’ll save a few dollars to put towards your favourite Roadtrip snacks.

2. Waze

The Waze app helps users to share info about traffic jams and incidents on the road. Users get notifications and voice alerts about police whereabouts, speed cameras and diverted routes. You can report the information you have and change your route according to live-updates. Waze also allows you to store routes that you’ve planned previously, and access these offline. There’s nothing worse than endless traffic ruining your road trip, so get yourself on Waze and head for those quiet and scenic roads!

3. Witness Driving 

The Witness Driving application allows users to use their phone as a dashcam. In the event of an accident, dashcam footage can be useful to help with insurance claims. It’s simple to use; you just have to mount your smartphone and press record before you start driving. The app records the date, speed and position, only saving the footage which you actually need. One of the most common causes of car accidents is distracted driving, so a car HUDS is also a useful gadget to take on a trip. For more info on car accidents, check out the Safe Roads USA.

4. Roadtrippers

Roadtrippers is a brilliant app to take on your next trip. You can use the app to find new destinations and plan an adventurous route. Whether you’re looking to find the scenic routes, research attractions or find hotels, Roadtrippers can help you do all this and more! With the free version of RoadTrippers, you can plot seven different waypoints. If you’re planning a longer road trip, you may need to upgrade to the ‘plus’ version of the app. The best thing about this app is that there’s also a RoadTrippers community where you can share tips, chat and make friends.

5. Popcorn Trivia
