RoadTrippers is a web based software application that helps travelers plan road trips. RoadTrippers lets users discover independently owned points of interest in the United States and Canada. Once a trip is saved, it can be synced to the RoadTrippers iPhone or Android app; for turn-by-turn navigation, and further local discovery while on the road.
Origins and Ownership
RoadTrippers CEO James Fisher, grew up traveling. His fellow co-founder: Tatiana Parent, shares her passion for travel; having traveled the US extensively by herself. Fisher and Parent both brainstormed the idea of RoadTrippers in 2010, The creation of Roadtrippers began as they were frustrated with the lack of useful travel resources. Particularly for finding independent places to visit, and sync travel advice with navigation.
By 2011, Fisher and Parent moved from Great Britain to focus on their company. In July 2011, a Cincinnati-based startup accelerator called: The Brandery; accepted RoadTrippers into its program. In June 2012, the company launched a public beta version of its application. The application allowed the use of the unpolished software in order to gain full feedback, for the website’s full release.
RoadTripper was mentioned on TIME’s 50 best websites in the world.

Though most of the negative comments are about the technical bugs and glitches of the RoadTrippers’ system, their approachable staff and attentive technical team never fails to fix these bugs and glitches through constant app updates. Some of these reviews are posted below:
“ I had trouble signing into my app thought I lost all my great trip memories and information but nope!!They have the best support I’ve seen from an app in a long long time. This is your bucket list, trip organizer mileage calculator and more who needs all those other apps this one has them all”
“Love the concept and have used it to find outdoorsy adventures! I’d love it if you could adjust the gas cost estimate based of off individual mpg.”
“I used this app earlier this year, but then they updated and they changed the layout and everything. It’s harder to use now and is not user friendly. I liked previous versions better as it was simple and easy to use.”
“ Had some bugs, but seems to be working great now. Using it to plan a 3k mile road trip around the Western parks. Love the unique features. A few suggestions… would be nice if it was easier to see times and distances between legs without turning all the others off. Also would be great to have a pin feature to place a pin in a location without an existing tag. Finally, you MUST create an offline ability to download trips for locations without service! Could be a 5 star app with a few minor changes!”
