Here is a selection of apps that can help you travel without booking ahead.
These can often be used whilst on the road to find last minute stop overs, aires and wildcamping sites.
www.park4night.com – The ultimate app for finding places to stay in Europe! Anyone can upload locations and post comments for locations found. It has wild camping, camp sites, aires, even car parks. We found it incredible while on our two-week tour in Europe, we where able to find aires, wild spots and campsites after only 5 minutes on the app.
Parkopedia.com – This app is a great service for finding car park locations throughout the UK.
Campercontact.com – Campercontact is one of the largest platforms for motorhome sites in the world. With over 35,000 motorhome sites in 58 countries, the app and website provide a wealth of travel information for motorhome owners. Compiled for and by a dedicated community of motorhome owners.
Campy – Campy is here to make you a happy camper. Freedom and adventure is all you need. We try to help by creating the best source of camps and inspiration. So you don’t have to worry about finding that great spot at the end of the day.
Britstops – A UK based scheme with sites far and wide, from the deep south west to the north of Scotland, which utilised pub car parks for motorhome overnight parking. There is no fee and no obligation but most people will have a drink or eat a meal in the pub.
France-passion – Fantastic scheme that allows you to stay with farmers, wine produces, cheese makers and so on, on their land and free of charge. The guide costs €30 and includes access to their web based site for searching.
Portugaleasycamp – A new-comer to Portugal and a great alternative to wild camping, this scheme is similar to France Passion but operates in a slightly different way. You go online and buy a product before heading to the farm or vineyard where you can then stay for 24 hours. The scheme is in its’ infancy with 24 vineyards signed up and certainly worth a try if you are heading to Portugal.
