Tis the season for a lot of travel. Between all of the holidays tucked into November and December, many people spend much of the time in these months traveling back and forth to see family and friends.

Because of that, there is a lot of time spent in the car, in airports and at train stations all trying to navigate their way to their destinations.

And in this new world of apps for everything, there are some apps which can be such an amazing help for traveling.

Let’s take a look at some of the best new travel apps out on the market for helping out with travel.


For anyone who is driving during the holiday season, Waze is a must have app. This isn’t your daddy’s GPS, with Waze it relies heavily on an active community that is constantly updating the database information.

So, in minutes you’ll be able to find out accidents, speed traps and construction. Plus, what might be the coolest feature is that it allows you to send a link to your destination so your friends and family can check on when you should arrive.

Field Trip

If you are spending your holiday season driving in the car with the kids, the Field Trip app is a must have. Using your phone’s GPS technology it is programed to alert you of cool (and educational) destinations, museums and activities nearby.

So, if the kids are starting to get a bit jumpy in the backseat and you need a break, fire up the app and find out some new, interesting and fun activities that will be great to break up the road trip a bit.

Car Stations

For those who drive electric cars, a road trip might seem daunting, since you’ll usually have to rely more on gas than the hybrid capabilities. But, with the app Car Stations, you won’t have to worry about it.

This app features the locations of over 4,000 car charging stations. This way, if you are heading out on a road trip with your electric car, you can be sure to have a series of points you know you can stop and get a charge.
