Roadtrippers Drops Price for “Plus,” Limits Free Accounts to 8 Waypoints

Roadtrippers Drops Price for “Plus,” Limits Free Accounts to 8 Waypoints

Update 9/24/19: This article is out of date. If you are looking for a coupon code to save 20% off a Roadtrippers PLUS subscription, check out this article here: https://rvmiles.com/roadtrippers-adds-in-app-navigation-offers-20-discount/

Update 3/25/19: Roadtrippers has reversed their decision and will not drop the price of Roadtrippers Plus. It will remain at $29.99.

Update: Roadtrippers reached out and wanted to offer a discount to our readers. The discount code is 5RVMILES2019 and you have to enter it at this site: https://roadtrippers.com/plusv4. That’ll give you Plus for $9.99 for the first year and locked in at $14.99 after that. [See the latest update above]
They say they came up with 8 waypoints based on the fact that a lot of people make trips with 8 points or less, and that their trip guides will remain free. This summer, everyone (free or paid) will be getting in-app, turn-by-turn navigation and Plus users will get in-route discovery. When there’s something neat along your route that you might have missed you’ll get a notification. They’re also going to be arranging discounts on attractions for Plus members. 

Roadtrippers, the popular web-based trip planning software and app, has announced that it will now limit free accounts to just 8 waypoints (or stops) on a trip.

Previously, users could put in up to 60 stops per trip, but beginning March 18th, you’ll have to upgrade to Roadtrippers Plus to get up to 150 waypoints. The good news is the price point for Roadtrippers Plus is dropping from $29.99 to $14.99 annually. [See the latest update above]

Plus members also get offline maps, live traffic, and the ability to change colors on maps, and turn-by-turn directions will be added to the premium level soon.

Roadtrippers was purchased by RV manufacturer Thor Industries last year and folded into TH2, their partnership to leverage global digital services for travelers. Roadtrippers is now an integrated part of their ToGo app platform for RV travel and maintenance.

    The discount code is for $5 off. And they are still charging $29.99. So even with this code the lowest price is $25.

    This isn’t true. They limited waypoints to 7 and kept the price at $29.99. And your discount is only good for $5 off.

    Well, Roadtrippers was good while it lasted. Seems like they want it to be practically unusable unless you pay for their service. 7 waypoints is way too little even to just explore. I am afraid that even their pay customers may end up suffering. When the traffic to their site eventually dries up, and sites no longer look to advertise there, even the paid members won’t be able to keep it afloat. I will keep my account until they shut it down, but it looks like it is Google maps from here on out. I can at least explore and add as many points of interest as I need.

    For free users, Roadtrippers is now in effect a glorified roadsideamerica.

      I was just able to use the link AND old code to pay $9.99. I’m willing to give it a try for that price. If it doesn’t live up to expectations, I’ll cancel after a year. I’m bummed because I REALLY loved using it before!

      Totally agree. Not sure what they expect people to do with 7 waypoints! Bit of a weird number to be honest. Time to find an alternative or use Google Maps as you have stated. Shame 🙁

    Totally stinks! I built my summer trip with multi way points prior to them making the change. Now I can’t edit it without paying:(

    Google Trips is getting retired in August. But as an alternative I’ve found Furkot (https://furkot.com) is an excellent roadtrip manager. It works in the browser and looks beautiful in mobile. All free too!

    Happy Travels!
