3 Apps To Download For Summer Driving
So that you can head out with confidence.
Summer is all about road trips (oh, hi, low gas prices), but true freedom comes with knowing someone' out there has your back. Day trip to the nearest park to hike waterfalls and canyons, do a drive-by of big-city monuments and sculptures, trawl historic neighborhoods for architectural gems, or pack a picnic and see where the road takes you.
Wherever your destination, a downer-free trip is right there in your pocket. Download these handy apps on your smartphone and head out with confidence.
1. GasBuddy Nothing is worse than being on an unfamiliar stretch of highway when that gas light comes on. This app lets you find the nearest gas station, compare prices, and save at the pump. As an added bonus, you can turn everyday purchases into gas money. With a GasBuddy-issued card, you can take advantage of shopping and dining deals and earn points to spend at the pump.
2. Allstate Mobile App The Allstate Mobile app gives you affordable, anytime access to roadside assistance, accident support, and more - right when (and where!) you need it. The Drivewise tool gives you no-judgment insights into how you drive, and rewards for your everyday safe driving.

3. Roadtrippers This app’s shareable trip planner makes road-trip planning with friends a snap. No more stopping to ask for directions. Just build an itinerary, then get turn-by-turn navigation assistance to get where you’re going.
