6 Road Trip Apps For Millennials
4 August 2017    Lisa Clark    0 comments
let’s be honest, we want to travel and for Australians it’s in our blood, I’m sure as kids you camped with the family or headed to a caravan park to ride your bikes and make friends with the locals. 
Ah, to be a kid again! I mean flying is fun, but nothing quite beats filling the car with your favourite friends, music pumping, snacks in hand and hitting the open road. Road trips give you the chance to explore at your own pace and truly take in the beauty of our great land. Sure your bestie may hold pride of place in your passenger seat but your smartphone could be your next perfect travel buddy. To make sure your trip is as hassle free as possible I’ve collated a list of the best travel apps to turn your travel dreams into a reality.
  1. Australian Road Trips -  $4.49

This App makes planning a road trip easy with over 40 detailed itineraries of where to eat, sleep, see, do and camp. It includes some of the most famous road trip routes like the Nullarbor to Sydney, Adelaide to Darwin and the Savannah way which takes you from Cairns to Broome. If you’re not quite ready for those big drives then use the app to research plenty of day trips and weekend getaways from each capital city.
  1. Yelp – Free

If you are travelling interstate or home and just wanting to find something different to do on the weekend, then this is your best buddy. Yelp will help you find the best pubs, restaurants, hotels and petrol stations within your chosen radius and the best part is they all come with reviews from travellers just like you.
  1. Trip Advisor - Free

This is my bible of travel, once I decide where I want to travel to I use this app to research and read user reviews of the hotels, attractions and restaurants. The feedback on the site is honest and open and the addition of user-generated photo collections of places to stay give you an insider’s view of any mid-range hotels that you aren’t sure if they just need a facelift or are actually a bed bugs haven. I never book anything without reading the reviews on this app first.
  1. The Good Food App – Premium subscription - $9.99

The perfect dinner buddy when you find yourself in a city you don’t know with a hankering for a good pub feed and a cold schooner or if you’re looking to treat yourself to a nice dinner in a cool restaurant in one of the CBD’S Australia wide.
This App provides instant access to more than 7000 reviews from some of Australia’s most respected foodies, plus you are able to book a table through the app without switching to another application. Check it out!
  1. Australian Bushwalking - $4.49

Collated and launched by writer/photographer/walker Melanie Ball this app chronicles 90 – Australia wide bushwalks. Walks are broken into categories like overnight, guided, full day, half day and also listed state by state. There are also personal insights from the apps creator which really make you feel like you are almost there with her.
  1. Airbnb and Stayz – Free

If you’re booking last minute accommodation or planning your next trip, then these apps should be your go too. With up to date booking sections plus users reviews you can find your home away from home when you’re on the road. Stayz alone has 25,000 properties listed with rates and reviews. Keep these apps handy for when you are road tripping or planning your next getaway.
