Summer is just around the corner and it can only mean one thing: road trips to the beach, concerts, or other landmarks all over the country. Vacations are one of the best parts of the season, even better when you are surrounded by friends or family. While these times can be fun on their own, you may need a bit of help along the way. Here are 20 apps you absolutely must have in order to take a successful road trip. Your co-travelers will be thanking you for these.
Spotify is one of the most important apps you could possibly download when it comes to traveling. You can create custom playlists from virtually any artist you like. It helps the time pass when you are singing to your favorite tunes.
You’re driving down the highway and you realize that you need gas in your vehicle. In an unfamiliar area, sometimes it can be tricky to find a gas station. With AroundMe, your problems are solved. This app will not only find gas stations, but it will also find restaurants, hospitals, banks, and so much more.
If you’re looking to go to a specific destination, you’re going to need to know how to get there. While you can load up a GPS or print out a map, it is much easier to do this from your phone. With Google Maps, you can chart your progress in real time. This app also has a feature that will allow a voice to tell you directions.
Face it, when you are traveling for long periods of time, you are going to need places to stay. You don’t want to spend tremendous amounts of money on some lavish hotel when you can be spending the money in other ways. AirBnB is a place where people can post rooms or entire homes as vacation rentals. The prices are often reasonable, the locations have reviews, and you can find a place to suit your needs in almost any city around the world.
