When on the road, your smartphone can be one of the most versatile and accessible tools. Whether it be Apple or Android, there are many apps that offer benefits such as easing navigation, pointing you towards cheaper food and gas, and even a better listening experience for your music!

In this list, we compiled our top picks for our favorite apps to have on your smartphone before you head off on your road trip!
 

Waze

Cost: Free

Available: IOS & Android

Using paper maps is a thing of the past. With advancements in GPS technology, it is far more convenient to install navigation apps on your smartphone. Our favorite pick was Waze Navigation & Live Traffic. Waze offers more than just getting you from point A to point B; Waze provides real-time alerts to traffic, accidents, and more! Waze also gives you friendly reminders to slow down when it detects you are driving at high speeds, this way, you can avoid pesky tickets. We recommend installing Waze before your next road trip to benefit from all the app has to offer.
 

Plugshare

Cost: Free

When traveling with your electric vehicle, it can be a challenge to find charging stations compared to gas stations. Fortunately, Plugshare is the perfect app that helps you pinpoint charging stations to ease traveling with your electric vehicle. Plugshare also offers real-time availability so you can see which charging station is currently open. If you are planning to head off on a road trip, Plugshare lets you plan out the location of charging stations so you can be confident you will have the battery to keep driving.
 

Spotify

Cost: Free + Premium Option

Available: IOS & Android

If you love listening to music when on the road, then this app is for you. Spotify lets you listen to music and podcasts on the go for an improved travel experience. With Spotify, you have the option to personalize your playlist to include only your favorite tracks, or you can listen to the radio option, which lets you discover new artists and songs. The free version offers limited options on what you can do. However, it is still great to experience Spotify and see what it can offer. If you decide Spotify is for you, then the paid version is the best option for maximized listening experience and enjoyment.
 

Roadtrippers

Cost: Free + Premium Option

The perfect app for road tripping, as you might get from the name. Roadtrippers makes our top choice for those wanting to plan the perfect road trip with the minimum hassle. This app lets you discover places to visit, such as local diners, quirky roadside attractions, and even scenic points! Roadtrippers also offers trip guides to check out potential road trips if you are unsure where you are planning to go. These trip guides include an approximate time and distance for the trip so you can plan accordingly with your schedule. This app is a must-have as your traveling buddy.
 

Gasbuddy

Cost: Free + Premium Option

Something that will always be a necessity for traveling is fuel. Your vehicle can’t run without it, but fuel can also be expensive and tedious to find. Fortunately, Gasbuddy is the perfect app to save by locating the cheapest fuel in your area. There are also gas rewards you can earn and safety tips such as recalls for your car. Gasbuddy also offers the option to track your fill-ups to learn more about your driving habits to save in the future. This app is a must-have for gasoline-powered vehicles.
