First Things First: Where Are You Going?

Mapping The Trip

When road tripping the first thing I like to do is get the geography of where we are headed so my go to site is AAA TripTiks

Once I have the road trip mapped out, the AAA Drive Plans are also  a great guide to determining points of interest.  Be sure to utilize their Travel Guides  and Drive Plans to add points of interest along your saved route.

Where Do I Get Hotel Reviews?

Other than those provided here on VeraVise WOW Travel, my go to site for hotel reviews is  TripAdvisor. You can create a “My Trip” itinerary with every hotel, point of interest, and restaurant you plan to visit.  

This comes in handy when traveling utilizing their app. You can even get step by step directions from Google Maps directly through the application.

Airline Tracking

For tracking flights, I recommend both Google Flights and Hopper

Now Let's Locate Where Will You Sleep?

Branded Hotels*

After mapping out your drive,  you need to find lodging.  These are my go to sites and apps for booking our lodging! I try to keep drive times to no more than 5 hours between stops MAX!

Booking Sites**

Other Helpful Apps For Your Phone

*Because I enjoy the privileges of the loyalty programs of the branded hotels, I start there.  Then, utilizing the savings I find there, I move to the conglomerate sites to search for boutique and specialty hotels.  

**I TRUST THE REVIEWS AT TRIPADVISOR MORE THAN BOOKING.COM EVEN IF  YOU FIND A BETTER RATE ON BOOKING.COM, I RECOMMEND READING THE REVIEWS AT TRIP ADVISOR OR OYSTER.COM**
