What is the thl Roadtrip App?
If you are travelling with us, the thl Roadtrip App is your go-to before you travel and while you're on the road. Access handy tips from planning and preparation, what to expect at pick-up, a full show-through video of the camper you have booked and comprehensive on-the-road CamperHelp ‘how to’ videos. We guide you through preparing your camper for drop-off and finally, make it easy for you to go again – be it through renting or buying.
How will the app help you plan your roadtrip?
1. Find everything you need
The thl Roadtrip app displays your current GPS location then shows the nearest campsite and holiday parks, (free and paid), petrol station, free wifi, real-time road alerts, supermarkets, dump stations, public toilets, LPG filling stations, Electric Vehicle Roam charging stations, laundromats and in fact pretty much everything you need when you're on the road.
2. Watch our videos
The thl Roadtrip App includes a full show-through video of your camper - showing you what it looks like and where to find everything. It's great to learn a bit about your camper before you get here. We also feature a bunch of useful 'CamperHelp' videos, showing you how to use the features of your camper - from plugging into power, to emptying the toilet cassette, setting up the dining tables and making the beds – you’ll be a pro in no time.
3. Find your way without a wifi or data connection
One of the best features of the thl Roadtrip App is, no matter where you are, the maps work offline, you don’t need a wifi connection to be able to use the maps when your out of range, you just need to save them first. Perfect for itinerary planning when your a bit more off the grid as New Zealand is big place with sometimes limited mobile reception areas.
4. Join the conversation with other travellers
If you like reading user tips and feedback about places to stay and things to do, then the thl Roadtrip App will be super helpful for you. As a user of the app you are able to leave your own feedback and read others comments and recommendations - very handy if you are trying to decide where to stay for the night and you want to know which campground is more preferred by fellow roadtrippers.

*We are part of a collaborative project called GeoZone which aims to make it easier to travel responsibly by sharing facility locations, so if you find something not on the app, or if you find a location that's no longer there, you can submit it through the app and contribute to this awesome project.
