Help Plan Your Trip Online! Great websites!

So you're driving across the country, making good time, until you hit Chicago rush-hour traffic. How were you to know that you just signed up for four hours of gridlock? Well, one way you could have avoided the situation altogether was to use a traffic density map to help plan your trip route and timing. And while you were at it, you might have used a whole lot of other online tools to help make your trip go smoother and be a whole lot more fun.
Today, tech savvy travelers can use online apps to make sure they are getting the best gas prices in every city, find the classic rock station in every town along their route, have a reserved parking space when they arrive at their destination, and even sign up for a program that lets them text message other cars using just their license plate number.
But despite all the online technology roadtrippers and vacationers could be using to improve their trips, most of us are still resorting to Web 1.0 sites like Mapquest, simply because we didn't know there was a better way.
In this article we introduce you to 25 of the best online travel apps, so that the next time you need to take a trip, you will be prepared.
