There is nothing better than the open road, here at Daily Rubber we aren’t strangers to weekly road trips. We have done them on a whim with little to no preparation and we have done them with weeks of planning.
Whether you are a paper road map and ‘see where it takes you kind of guy’ or a GPS, technology geek with a fetish for road adventures we think having a few apps just in case things go awry is absolutely necessary.
1. Gas Buddy
Planning a trip across the country? Unfortunately, you might need gas. That’s where Gas Buddy comes in. It helps you find the cheapest gas on your path.
There are tons of navigation apps out there, but none like Waze. With this app, you get real-time traffic updates so you know what routes to avoid, notifications on speed traps, gas price comparisons and multiple routes to get to your destination. If that’s not enough, Waze is community-based, meaning you’re always getting live updates from other drivers.
3. Tune In
A road trip just isn’t complete without music playing on the radio. But local radio stations can get boring after a time. That’s why Tune In offers over 100,000 radio stations from all over the world. With a selection this massive, you’ll grow old and lose your teeth before you even come close to exhausting the selection.
If you’re not into music and just prefer to catch up on some reading, no need to worry. Audible gets you access to tons of books in all genres. Sometimes a peaceful ride as you lose yourself in an imaginary world is the best way to pass the time.
If you don’t have a clear idea of where to go on an unplanned road trip or like some, you just love to wing it, in that case, HotelTonight is for you.
It is great for finding super discounted last-minute hotel deals that are nearby, complete with user reviews, star ratings and summaries. It can make an uncharted road adventure more comfortable by highlighting exclusive deals whether you plan it out in advance or just grab the keys and go.
With these apps, you’re certain to have an unforgettable road trip! So stop thinking and start driving.
