Apps for your next road trip
PackPoint makes sure you pack everything you need for your trip.
The app creates a custom checklist by asking you what kind of activities you will be doing.
Like swimming, hiking or going out to a fancy dinner.
To top it off the app checks out the upcoming forecast to account for any weather specific items.
If you plan on hitting the road for more than a day gas prices will be top of mind.
Gas Buddy helps you save by identifying the cheapest gas stations on your route.
You can filter stations by gasoline brands and extras like an ATM machine or a snack shop.
Finally if you don't plan on booking your hotel stays in advance Hotel Tonight is a must.
The app offers last minute deals on hotels, and helps you decide which one to book by offering it's own reviews.
For each hotel, the amenities are clearly listed, letting you know about things like WiFi, if pets are allowed, and if there's a swimming pool.
