Luton – RoadTrip, Vauxhall’s free smartphone app that allows drivers to track their business journeys, has been downloaded over 3,500 times and earned an App Store rating of 4 out of 5 stars. In the same month, Vauxhall was awarded by BusinessCar for having the best fleet manufacturer website.


The app contains a number of features to enable drivers to track business journeys more easily, making mileage claims simpler and faster. Journeys can be viewed via GPS and destinations found quickly with the postcode look-up functionality.

RoadTrip now includes a greater range of vehicles from Vauxhall and other manufacturers to choose from before entering journey details. In addition, all important data can be backed-up, password protected and reports can be imported into Excel to be emailed to a manager, for example.

RoadTrip is currently available for free on the iPhone and Vauxhall will be launching the Android version in 2012.

Vauxhall has also claimed the accolade of having the best fleet manufacturer website, after coming out on top in an extensive set of tests by BusinessCar magazine.

“Vauxhall’s work to revamp its fleet website has proved to be well worth all the effort, with the revised site jumping to the top of BusinessCar’s chart,” said Business Car Editor Paul Barker. “Our comprehensive review of the top car manufacturers’ online presence found Vauxhall’s site to be the best at serving the business car industry, and the company’s further investment in developing the RoadTrip app, suitable for drivers of all cars, shows how seriously Vauxhall is taking its digital presence.”

Steve Catlin, Fleet Marketing Manager at Vauxhall Motors said: “We’re delighted with the success of both our RoadTrip app and our fleet website. Vauxhall has put a lot of effort into making the lives of business drivers and fleet managers easier, so it’s great to have our hard work recognised.”
