5 Great Travel Apps

It seems like almost everyone has a smart phone. We use them for all kinds of things from social media to maps to even travel. You can pretty much find an app for everything. There are more apps being developed every day. Apps are great to use while you are traveling, as long as you don’t use them as you are driving. It’s great to have someone be the navigator to help you get to your destination safely. Apps are a huge timesaver too because if you use a map app, you can have it tell you where to drive without pulling out the map or asking for directions. Here are five great travel apps to have on any road trip you go on. 

Free Wi-Fi Finder is a traveler’s best friend. You have your precious data plan and you tend to use it more when you are traveling. A lot of people don’t want to cart their computers around. It might be tricky to know where to find free Wi-Fi so with this app it will show you where to go, if you have to upload photos to social media or do some unexpected work. 

Weather+Free is a great app to have when you are on a road trip. You can just check the weather along your drive to see if you need to worry about heavy rain or even snow in the mountains. It will also help you pack for your destination too. Especially when the weather can be unpredictable. It will also tell you about humidity, wind speed, and local time. 

Trip-it is an app that helps you plan your whole trip. You no longer have to meet with a travel agent to make all your arrangements. You don’t have to write out your trip information you can just have it all in one easy app. You won’t lose your confirmation or lists because they are all on your smart phone.

Postagram is a really cool app that makes it impossible not to send a postcard to your loved ones. You just snap the picture on your smart phone and send the postcard for free. If you want to send an actual postcard, it’s just $0.99 and postage is included. No more spending hours and time looking for the perfect generalized “Wish you were here” postcard. It’s personalized and fun!

GasBuddy will help you not only find gas stations, but will also help you find the cheapest gas. Gas can be very expensive at certain gas stations and you want to be able to save your money for fun stuff.  It will also tell you how far away a gas station is, because sometimes the exit signs take you on an adventure to a gas station that isn’t right off the highway. You don’t want run out of gas and end up having to push your car to a gas station. 

I hope these apps help make your trip a little easier wherever you may end up!
