One of the best ways to travel is through road trips. In fact, nearly 90% of Americans spend their vacations with road trips. However, planning for a road trip is entirely different than actually being prepared. Your car could break down, get stuck in bad weather, or even get lost. Thankfully, with these mobile apps, you can plan ahead for your road trip and be prepared for any unexpected changes and detours.
Here are four travel apps for the road.
When the time comes where you need to refuel, the GasBuddy will help you find gas according to location and price. This will help you save a few bucks just by going farther down the road.
The GasBuddy app is available on BlackBerry, Android, Windows, iOS, and The Web.
