These days there’s an app for pretty much everything which means there’s quite a few apps out there that can make your life a lot easier while on the road in your campervan, motorhome or caravan. From booking campsites and finding amenities to discovering local attractions and accessing vital first aid information, it’s time to get downloading to make sure you’re prepared for life on the road. Check out our top 6 apps for road tripping below:
1. Fuel Map
Fuel Map is a great app, not only for finding fuel nearby and along your route, but also for finding the cheapest fuel in the area. There can often be a big difference in the cost of fuel between service stations and if you’re constantly filling up when the cost of fuel is at its peak, you’ll start to notice it making a big dent in your budget. The information on fuel map is crowdsourced from travellers like yourself who are consistently editing and adding info based on their experiences which means the prices and locations are pretty much as ‘up to date’ as you can get.
ApolloConnect is a really handy app for finding local points of interest, instructional videos, getting discounts on attractions and you can even find & book campgrounds along your route. This app is great because it has so many resources and so much information all in one place. Make sure you don’t hit the road without downloading this app first!
3. Australian Bites and Stings
Our country is full of so many wonderful sights and experiences, but when you’re out on the road in your campervan, motorhome or caravan you need to be aware of the potentially dangerous wildlife around you. Australian bites and stings is an amazing tool that informs you what kind of first aid needs to be applied when bitten or stung by various kinds of creatures. However, it should be noted that this app isn’t in any way a replacement for seeking medical care & attention.
Looking for campsites and holiday parks while travelling on the road? Look no further than the Campstay app!

You can also use this convenient app to find RV amenities, dump points, petrol stations, attractions and more!
5. Mad Paws
We all like to bring our fur babies on the road with us as much as possible but sometimes we have a road trip planned that just wouldn’t be vary cat or dog friendly. Or perhaps you have a pet that’s more difficult to pack up and bring on the road with you. That’s where Mad Paws comes in. This app connects pet owners with pet sitters who can look after your pet while you’re road tripping in your campervan, motorhome or caravan. What’s great is that you can see reviews and ratings from other pet owners so you know you’re leaving your fur baby in the hands of someone you can trust.
6. First Aid by Australian Red Cross
The free Australian Red Cross app is a comprehensive guide to any first aid that you may need to perform or receive while travelling on the road. Travelling in your campervan, motorhome or caravan generally involves walking, exploring nature and being in unfamiliar environments which can sometimes lead to injuries. Downloading this app will ensure that you have access to the most up to date info on how to deal with that injury.
