    "TollGuru allows you to quickly look up the price of all toll bridges, roadways, and tunnels from start to destination. It adds up the costs of gas and toll to show you the cheapest, fastest, and compromise routes. You can pick vehicles from family sedans to 6-axle trucks, RV, and motorcycles. The apps shows costs for each toll location for transponders like E-ZPass, cash, and license plate based video tolls."

    "My bestie and I are planning on going on a road trip this summer, and HotelTonight looks like it's going to be a LIFE SAVER. We don't want to have to plan where we will be on each night and book hotels ahead of time, so being able to book them for that day will be super useful. "

    "When you don't have time to visit a traveling agent, this app is probably the next best thing. It can find tons of good deals, and the interface is very intuitive to use. The reviews that are available to read within the app for each destination is highly useful for international travels. It's like yelp, but quite a bit more comprehensive."

    "I appreciate the concept of what TripHippie is trying to do, but it seems that all, or at least most, of the trips are all to India. Not accounting for the lack of trips on this side of the globe, India deals with far too many backpackers going there with no idea what it's really like to be in India. I feel as if TripHippie is only going to exacerbate the problem, considering how relatively inexpensive their packages are."
