We’re always looking for ways to make travel easier, and sometimes you need to look no further than the device you already own. Here are top 3 must-have apps to help make travel easier so you can have more fun!
We love a road trip as much as the next person, but sometimes you have to weigh the benefits – is it better to have the freedom of your own car at your destination, or should you take to the skies instead? Travelmath is an excellent resource to help with this decision. Use the app to compare driving and flying times and get information about stopping points while you drive or which airlines provide non-stop service. The cost of driving is calculated based on current local gas prices at 25 mpg. Free on Google Play and the App Store.
This one is a favorite of truck drivers, but is immensely helpful for those with RVs and trailers, too. This extensive, up-to-date database lists parking across the U.S. Besides truck stops, RoadBreakers also lists restaurants, rest areas, retail locations, legal street parking and more so you can park right for the night. Plus, find nearby businesses to where you stop and leave reviews of where you go to help other drivers. $1.99 on the App Store.
Stop forgetting that one thing every time. Packing Pro answers all your list-making woes and does most of the work for you. Aside from being able to create unlimited customizable, categorized packing lists, you can also take advantage of the amazing Expert List Assistant feature. Enter the number of adults, children, days of the trip, temperature, and many other details to have a list started for you. When you complete your list, total up the weights and values of each bag, email the list to others, and start checking off that list. $2.99 on the App Store.
