Apps for a Great Road Trip

Last week, we reviewed our pick of road trip essentials to help you enjoy your trip a little better. Today, we go through a few amazing apps that can make going anywhere much easier.

Until a couple of years ago, going on road trips meant learning large maps and stopping a hundred times at various places to ask around for directions. The scenario is not the same today, as paper maps and occasional stops have become a thing of the past. Technology has influenced travel to a large extent. Now we can simply switch on our GPS and reach anywhere without a hassle. While Maps is the travel app we are all most familiar with, there are a few others that are very helpful during a road trip. Discover them below!
