We all know that any time is a good time for a road trip or getaway so if you’re just about to hit the road, then our Best Travel Apps For iPhone And Android for road trips will make the long drive much more enjoyable and fuss-free.
Okay, so the first one is not technically an app: it’s a new website that aims to be the best one stop camping spot on the internet. Find unbiased reviews, recipes, create groups and share your events and lots more.
There’s Nothing Like Australia
This well-designed app gives users inspiration for fantastic road trips, as illustrated in its multimedia journeys, showing video, interactive imagery and real-life travel stories. It not only features well-known destinations, such as Melbourne and Sydney, but also off-the-beaten-track tours, such as Uluru and El Questro.
But the app also has a more useful side apart from inspirational scenery. With it, you can find places to stay, and details about towns you can visit.It even allows you to build and export an itinerary that you can save or share with your friends.
Appy Travels is not one app, but an app ‘series’ thatis constantly presenting updated information on destinations, including Australian capital cities as well as regional ports of call, such as Byron Bay, Yarra Valley, Goulbourn Valley, the Kimberley and the Blue Mountains.
There’s an impressive list of features that includes interactive maps, news, image and video galleries, weather and daily deals specific to the areas you are visiting. It also allows users to post their own reviews, comments and recommendations.
Australia On The Cheap
Our favourite road tripper, Lee Atkinson has created this handy app for anyone who wants to save a bit of cash when travelling.Australia on the Cheap is packed with money-saving tips, and features over 450 free or inexpensive attractions, as well as advice on great places to camp and stay. And you can trust every review, because Lee Atkinson has made them all herself.
You can use the app to plan your trip, and all the maps and photos are included in the initial download – which is handy if you’re in the middle of nowhere and don’t have access to wifi.
Yelp is a fantastic directory app that can help you find restaurants, places to stay, petrol stations, pubs or any other types of businesses that are listed in its massive archive. The app is review based, meaning you can make your decisions on whether or not to stay in a hotel based on other people’s recommendations.
