We have tried lots of apps over the course of our adventures, and here are the ones we can’t live without!
Great for finding interesting places to take a break. Lists lots of off the beaten path places and oddities, but has lead us to some really amazing discoveries.
Nothing is worse than being stuck in traffic and not knowing if there is a way around it. Waze to the rescue! Using real-time crowd sourced data, it helps to route you around trouble areas, if possible.
Great for finding the cheapest gas as you travel – often if you just go a few miles off the interstate prices drop considerable.
Heading into a larger metro area and need to park – make sure to check out this app! You can search for, reserve, and pay for a spot in local garages often far cheaper than if you just drive in. Yes, you need to pre-pay, but Biker has saved a ton parking around Boston. More cities being added all the time.
We never make reservations – but instead make last minute reservations when we get ready to stop. It has bitten us once, but these apps usually help us find a decent place to lay our heads. We often find a place and rate here then go to the actual hotel site to book – or call and ask for that rate.
We also use Hotels.com too.
