Your smartphone might be one of the most adaptable and accessible tools you have when you're on the road. Whether for Apple or Android, many apps provide benefits such as assisting navigation, directing you to cheaper food and fuel, and even providing a better listening experience for your music! We've selected our top selections for the best apps to have on your smartphone; to ease your drives!

 

  • Spotify

Cost: Free + Premium Option

Available: IOS & Android

If you prefer listening to music while driving, this app is for you. Spotify allows you to listen to music and podcasts on the road for a better travel experience. You can create a Spotify playlist with only your favorite music or listen to the radio to discover new artists and songs. With the free version, you can only do a restricted number of activities. It is, nonetheless, worthwhile to give Spotify a try and see what it has to offer. If you feel Spotify is right for you, upgrading to the paid version is the best way to get the most out of your listening time. 
 

  • Waze

Cost: Free

Available: IOS & Android

It is no longer required to utilize paper maps. Installing navigation apps on your smartphone has never been easier, thanks to advancements in GPS technology. One of our favorite apps is Waze Navigation & Live Traffic. Waze does more than just get you from point A to point B; it also alerts you to traffic, accidents, and other events in real-time! Waze will send you a friendly message to slow down if it detects that you are traveling too fast. You can avoid getting a ticket this way. Install Waze before your next road trip to make the most of the app's features.
 

  • Gasbuddy

Cost: Free + Premium Option

Available: IOS & Android

Traveling will always necessitate the use of fuel (for now, haha). Fuel is necessary for your car to function, but finding it can be costly and time-consuming. Fortunately, Gasbuddy is an excellent app for saving money by locating the cheapest fuel in your area. You can also get gas incentives and learn about safety problems like auto recalls. You may also track your fill-ups with Gasbuddy to better understand your driving habits and save money in the future. This app is a must-have for gasoline-powered vehicles.
 

  • Plugshare

Cost: Free

Available: IOS & Android

Finding charging stations while traveling with your electric vehicle might be tough compared to gas stations. Fortunately, Plugshare is the best app for finding charging stations so you can drive with your electric vehicle more easily. Plugshare also provides real-time availability data, allowing you to see which charging stations are available at any given time. Plugshare lets you map out charging stations if you're planning a road trip, so you know you'll have enough juice to keep going.
 

  • Roadtrippers

Cost: Free + Premium Option

Available: IOS & Android

As the name suggests, this is the ideal app for road trips. For those looking to plan the perfect road vacation with the least amount of stress, we recommend Roadtrippers. This app allows you to find local meals, weird roadside attractions, and even scenic sites to explore! If you're not sure where you want to travel, Roadtrippers also has trip guides to help you plan your vacation. These travel instructions give an estimated time and distance for the trip so that you can plan ahead of time. As a travel companion, this app is a must-have.


Consider downloading these applications to help you navigate, discover cheaper gas, and listen to music before you hit the road.
