The apps you need for your next road trip

The apps you need for your next road trip

Sometimes you just want to get out on the road without a care in the world, and typically that’s fine. But today, we have a few apps that will make your journey stress free and enjoyable!


Are you hiking? Travelling with a baby? Going for a splash? PackPoint has your back. With so many things to take into consideration, packing can be a stressful affair. Before you set out, consider using this app – it organises what you need to bring based on the length of travel, weather at your destination and any activities that you have planned for your trip. It also creates a link for the packing list, which you can share with other travellers, so they’ll know what to pack too.

Fuel Map

Road trips aren’t cheap and petrol can differ in price at each station – so why not try and save some money so you have more for other things on your trip? Download Fuel Map to see the price of petrol at every petrol station across the country! Using data from state databases and the user community, it’ll help travellers find the best price for fuel along their route. It also comes with a fuel log for your convenience, to help you budget your trip and keep track of any petrol expenses. With less money spent on petrol, you’ll have more to spend on the rest of your holiday.


The moment you have found that perfect spot to set up your camping spot and gaze at the sunset, get a closer look at the cosmos with this app. Simply point your phone at the sky, and the app will educate you about the stars, constellations and galaxies all around you. Lie under the stars and explore the night sky with this pocket-sized telescope. A nifty feature of this app is that you can also see what someone else is seeing in their sky, in another part of the world. It’s an interactive, informative and educational app for the stargazer in all of us – so knock yourself out!
