<< Back to Blog list

10 of the best apps for travelling … that you'll actually use.  No one needs a smartphone full of gimmicky apps. We’ve rounded up a selection of the best tools for the digital-savvy caravanner!

Packing for your holiday

Packpoint - (Free)

PackPoint is a free packing list organiser for serious travel pros. The app will help you organise what you need to pack in your luggage and suitcase based on length of travel, weather at your destination and any activities planned during your trip.

Travelling to your holiday home or towing your touring caravan

Highways England - Live Traffic Info - (Free)

Find out if there are any traffic jams or diversions on this app by region, motorway, near you or on a certain A road.  You can add in your starting and end postcode to see if anything will affect you on your drive from home to your holiday location!

Places to visit and things to do when you arrive

Places to Visit by the Canal & River Trust - (Free)

This App details over 100 places to visit in and around the canals of England and Wales from the Anderton Boat Lift in Cheshire (one of the seven wonders of the waterways and one of only two working boat lifts in the country), and Stoke Bruerne on the Grand Union Canal in Northamptonshire (an idyllic picture of passing boats and local wildlife).

AroundMe by Flying Code Limited - (Free)

Hungry and looking for inspiration? Meeting friends at a bar close by? Or just need to find the closest ATM?   AroundMe allows you to search for the nearest restaurants, banks, petrol stations, book an hotel or find a movie schedule nearby.

BBC Weather App - (Free)

Features include entering the location you will be holidaying at and 9 day weather forecast!  Great for planning days to jump in muddy puddles with the kids or get the BBQ food ready when the sunshine is forecast!

Staying in with the family

Supermarket Apps: Sainsburys, Tesco or Asda - (Free)

Buy Groceries online from Sainsbury's, Tesco or Asda, the same great quality, freshness and choice you'd find in store.  This saves you shopping before your caravanning trip and then packing all of it up to take with you!

Top Tip - Do make sure that the caravan park you're staying in will accept deliveries from supermarkets as some will not. 

BBC Iplayer - (Free)

Wanting to keep up to date with your favourite shows while you are away? Try out the new BBC iPlayer Downloads. Downloading allows you to enjoy your favourite BBC programmes without being connected to the Internet!

Top Tip - Check if you have internet access at the place you are staying, or try and download things in advance.

Domino's Pizza - (Free)

If the campiste you're staying at doesn't have a food place on site then why not order all your favourite pizzas, sides, desserts AND drinks at the touch of a single button by simply setting up your very own Easy Order button! Yum.

Top Tip - be sure to check out if you can receive deliveries direct to your caravan or if you have to pick them up from reception.

Deliveroo - (Free)

Looking for something a bit more than pizza then deliveroo lets you order food delivery from the finest restaurants near you. Order food from your favourite restaurants and have it delivered instantly, right to your door!

Top Tip - be sure to check out if you can receive deliveries direct to your caravan or if you have to pick them up from reception.

Getting Around

Taxi Apps - such as Skyline Taxis and Eezy Cabs MK

Looking to go out in Milton Keynes or the surrounding and you don't want to drive then book a Taxi in under 10 seconds using one of these apps.  Other local taxi apps are available.
