New app to keep journeys on track

Vauxhall has launched a free iPhone app, called RoadTrip, which helps motorists keep track of their business trips.

RoadTrip tracks business miles and allows users to build up a library of their favourite tours and destinations, without having to enter the same data for a second time.

With the new app, which is aimed at improving the accuracy of accounting for business journeys, it is easier to create mileage claims.

RoadTrip calculates mileage rates, journey costs and other likely expenses based on the vehicle model, the destination and the route taken.

All vital information can be backed up and password protected as well as accessed on other devices.

Steve Catlin, fleet marketing manager for Vauxhall, said: "The RoadTrip app combines navigational tools with smart calculation software to offer an easy-to-use app for any employee on the road."

Before hitting the roads, motorists always need to make sure that they have taken out acar insurance policy.
