Before you pack the car and head to Orlando be sure to pack these innovative travel tools to enhance your trip. These tools are inexpensive and some are even free.
With gas prices on the rise again, finding the cheapest gas is a priority when traveling. Try out gasbuddy.com
to be sure you don't miss out on the lowest price in town or on the highway. You can simply type in a location or click on a map to see a list of gas prices in the area. Gasbuddy.com can be used online or on your smart phone. This "community-based app" also allows you to earn points towards prizes for reporting gas prices.
Not sure what to pack or always forgetting something? Try out the Packing
or Packing Pro app. This app allows you to create lists and view them based on what you've already packed and what still needs to be packed. You can even create a list for each member of the family and email it to them, a great option for that one family member who always seems to lose their list.
In a world where we stay constantly in touch, you can notify friends and family of your whereabouts with the IAMHERE
app. This app can send an email update with a Google map of your current location. This is a very useful app in the case of a breakdown.
As the number one travel destination in the country, of course Orlando has a few apps of its own. Visit Orlando
features many of these apps on their website. You'll find an app for each of the major theme parks, as well as airport, dining, traffic and parking apps. There is even an app which specializes in ride height requirements at the theme parks.
Perhaps the best of the best is the Android Orlando app for kids, Go Trexx Family Adventures - Orlando
. This app claims to be kid-friendly in every way and features a GPS alert that lets kids know when you are approaching something interesting in the area. The app also has activities and trivia to keep kids busy while you wait in traffic or in line for a popular ride.
With so many travel tools at your fingertips there has never been a better time to visit Orlando and stay at Oak Plantation Resort.
