If you are going to be taking a road trip this spring, one of the things that would be a good idea to invest in is trip interruption insurance. The other thing you need to do in order to help your trip go smoothly is to download a few apps for your smartphone that are perfect for travel. Here are some of the more popular apps for travelers.
- Yelp – This is a great way to find high-quality restaurants and hotels throughout your trip and once you reach your destination. There are literally tens of millions of reviews that have been posted since Yelp started their service.
- Google Maps – From finding places to stop along your way (like gas stations, hotels, restaurants, and even medical facilities if an emergency arises) to help with getting to your destination as fast as possible, Google Maps is a must for travelers.
- Priceline – If you get too tired for anyone to drive and want to stop for the night, the Priceline app is a great way to find Express Deals for hotels in the area that are selling off empty rooms cheap (Hotwire works too).
- Uber – You may be driving to your destination, but once you are there, you may want to take a break from driving. Uber provides you with access to drivers who can take you to and from local hotspots. You don’t have to worry about having a designated driver or navigating traffic in a city you don’t know that well. Your Uber driver takes care of that for you.
