Travel apps that make your road trip easier:
However, when it comes to our smartphones, we have to admit we can’t sacrifice on service! We love that with Straight Talk, you can get unlimited* Nationwide Coverage and up to 8x more high-speed data than other $45 no-contract plans! This helps us when we are on the road because we are able to stay connected no matter where we are.
Summer is a busy time for us. We are always on the go! We like to take weekend road trips and vacations but when we do, we also need to stay connected. It is important as bloggers and Moms to have internet access 24/7. This summer we have taken our Straight Talk Wireless Service on the road, and we are sharing some of our favorite selfies and experiences with you.
The 1-month unlimited plan with unlimited*nationwide texts includes 3GB of high-speed data per 30-day cycle. So, you are not without service if you use your 3GB of data it will just reduce the speed of your service. We personally never use the 3GB of service monthly however if you do you won’t get charged any additional fees. We love that!
Best of all we have had ZERO dropped calls this summer on our road trips. Even while traveling through the mountains of Tennessee and the backroads of Kentucky. That is pretty impressive! When other cell phone providers have dropped our calls in the past or we have been unable to get service our Straight Talk Wireless plan did not let us down. We put Straight Talk to the test, and we are happy to say that they passed with flying colors. Of course, using our phones is a must for taking fun Selfies while we are traveling too! We are sharing a few of our favorites with you.
So far, I have traveled to Mesa, Arizona, Chattanooga, TN, Berea, KY, Rogersville, TN and to Mason, Ohio. I had zero problems with service on any of my travels! Best of all there were times I needed to google attractions, search for places to dine and even get alternative directions when we ran into a closed interstate. Every time I was able to get connected with my unlimited* nationwide coverage on my Straight Talk Wireless phone.
Some of my favorite travel apps include White Noise, Find Me Gluten Free, Allegiant2Go, Kings Island, Beat the Traffic and Google Maps. I can’t travel without these and luckily when I am using Straight Talk, I can easily access them.
Straight Talk is available exclusively at Walmart.
* 30-day Unlimited Plans include 3 GB of high-speed data per 30-day cycle. After 3 GB, your data speed will be reduced to as low as 64 kbps for the remainder of the 30-day cycle. If your data speed is reduced, the reduced speed may impact the functionality of some data applications, such as streaming audio or video or web browsing. Certain restrictions apply. Straight Talk reserves the right to terminate your service for unauthorized or abnormal usage. Plan, features, coverage and limitations may vary. Please refer always to the latest Terms and Conditions of Service at StraightTalk.com

Great selfies!! I didn’t know about Straight Talk. Thanks!
Love my Straight Talk Wireless Plan!
I don’t travel often but I think some of these apps will work well for the avid traveler. I saw someone say the other day that they would like an app that gives them all the deals in one area for certain hotels and places to eat. So if you are traveling to Tampa the apps gives you deals (similar to groupon) on whats in that area alone. Maybe they have something like that?
I love the photos. Staying connected is important, especially when you are always on the road. The Straight Talk Wireless sounds like a great plan because it’s very affordable and has 8x more high speed data than other plans. I will check out these apps.
I hate to admit, but I am so dependent on my phone now. I use Google Maps and other traffic apps daily, because the commute is horrendous here in the Bay Area. High speed data is super important to me, esp because I’m impatient (ha!) and my daughter uses my phone for games and a few videos.
Find me gluten free sounds like it would be a fabulous app to have when traveling! This awesome sounds like an awesome cell phone plan for the price! Thanks for sharing this awesome post with us!
I love Google Maps. I am so afraid of getting lost, so this little app makes me feel better when I miss my turn. I don’t have Beat the Traffic, which sounds like a time saver. I hate being stuck in traffic.
I have been debating switching from my high price carrier to straight talk. You’ve given me a lot to think about. One of my favorite travel apps is waze. It’s a great alert app to tell you what’s coming up on the road, where the police are and it allows others to tell you what they’ve spotted ahead.
I’ve never heard of Straight Talk before today, this sounds like a great service, especially if you aren’t getting any dropped calls. I have Sprint and before that Verizon and I couldn’t even talk on my phone in my house. i’m paying close to $200.00 for my phone bill now too. Do they have good phones for these plans?
I haven’t heard about Straight Talk Wireless but now I will definitely be looking them up. I am hoping do much more traveling and I would love, love, love to try all the apps that you suggested. Thank you so much.
