3. Fuel Smart – This nifty little app helps travellers pin point the cheapest fuel prices near to you (from 2 to 30 miles away). The app monitors over 9000 petrol stations across the UK, and you can also download a US, PT, and IE version for when you are travelling abroad.
4. Urban Spoon – This app can help you find recommended local restaurants simply by ‘shaking’ your phone! if you would rather have more control of your choice, this app holds a comprehensive list of eateries filtered by neighbourhood, cuisine or price, you can also see reviews fellow eaters and newspapers, and finally! make a reservation!
