Plan a Road Trip Easily with AAA Club's Free TripTik

Roadready-pic1 Getting ready to plan a road trip for the summer? As exciting as getting out on the open road with your favorite people may be, making all those nitty gritty travel plans can be daunting. Lucky you — AAA Auto Club has made its famed online TripTik service available to the public. Better than simple map-and-direction web sites, TripTik is an all-in-one road travel planner that offers visitors the advantage of creating their own direction guides, plotted and point-marked with all of the necessities you’ll require, such as lodging, construction zones, gas stations (TripTik is the first online mapping tool to provide users with both locations and fuel prices!), events, area attractions, or auto repair shops. The fully-interactive program also allows travelers to view AAA-approved lodging ratings, pricing and availability all in one step.

For the hour and a half jaunt that we tested using TripTik, we printed 13 pages of information. We also printed out the one-page overview, which was most useful on our predominantly back-road drive, where gas stations and restaurants were far and few.
