Not exhaustive or accurate 1/5
I used this for a short trip with family to discover places to eat and things to do. It seems to pull in a very limited selection of both. I can’t quite figure it out - maybe only places with google reviews? Oddly, the app doesn’t let you submit reviews from within so I don’t know if an intern designed this or what. I was disappointed it wouldn’t map out some cool places to stop on our drive either, I had to get another app for that. Definitely doesn’t show all of the available food and drink options, there were cool, established places that didn’t come up as suggestions at all. Plus the open hours on the state park we tried to visit were so wrong (park is actually closed for the winter season). Thanks to this app my family’s trip was kind of a bust and ended with my daughter crying as we got on the road home, early.
Almost perfect 4/5
By J. Mical
This app is great and easy to use. My only issue is I wish I could add my own plans and create my own schedule. There’s not a place to create a day by day plan. And if it doesn’t register something in my email as something that needs to be added to my trip it doesn’t put it on there.
Needs Work 2/5
The day plan feature is exactly what I was looking for that no one else seems to have.
But I can’t edit the plans to add a stop, nor does it seem to always come up with a sensible itinerary of events. Some sights and attractions are not selectable, nor are general areas (like Chinatown in Manhattan).
If this could be made more user friendly and useful, maybe I wouldn’t have to use pen and paper to plan my next trip the hard way.
Supposedly imports bookings. Doesn't 1/5
So what's the point?
Needs work 2/5
Still in it’s infancy from what I can tell. Set up a trip manually then forwarded air travel reservations to my gmail account and it created a new trip. Haven’t figured out how to merge it into the trip I already created. Will update as my experience evolves.
Looking Forward to Improvements 3/5
The concept here is beautiful, but the follow through isn’t there.
My biggest issue is that I can’t share the day plans or reservations with anybody, so the whole point of me downloading this app so I could help my family plan our trip is moot.
However, I see what they want to do with it & I’m excited to see what a few updates and bug fixes will improve.
Save yourself the headache 1/5
By far the most frustrating app I've ever tried to use. I'm going somewhere I'm already familiar with but would like to plan my days. But none of places I want to go to are even listed. Turns out, you have to add them from the maps app. How'd I find this out? In the "help" option?! Nope. Only way to discover this is through frustration, trial, and error. Then, when I want to add those places to plan my day, they just sit there as saved places. You can tap on them and get info, even get a blue pin. But none of them can be added to your day. Then when you try to just let the app decide what to do, it limits you to a couple of entirely impractical options. So just unpin and select a new one, huh? "Sorry, this cannot be removed from your day." Really? You're gonna force me to go to the children's museum? As an app, you can do that? I can't go to my grandma's house but by all means, tell me what my day *should* look like. I trust you implicitly, pointless app. Ugh, such a waste of time.
Pointless travel app 1/5
By Hens jebel
Failed to see reservations in my GMail, can’t add other users to coordinate trips, clunky design and ultimately missing features available for years in other free travel apps. I really thought using Google Trips as a planner for an upcoming group trip would be so easy and helpful- instead I’m deleting it because it’s useless. Bummer!
Failed to select custom starred places in Day Plans 1/5
It only allowed default attractions in Day Plans. I saved my places with starred in google map. In the Day Plans, I am not allowed to choose my starred places. Even worse, the Day Plans does not show my starred places in Cancun. This problem seems only occurs in trips outside of the US.
Come on, Google 1/5
Disappointing effort from Google. The app does not automatically input reservations from my gmail account (as advertised), which is the main reason for using this app. You cannot search for or add activities, sights, etc. to your itinerary, you can only browse items Google has pre-populated for the city you are traveling to.
Trip it is far ahead for now 1/5
No automatic pickup of rez other than flights
Good Concept but Needs Improment 2/5
I was excited to try out this APP, hoping this will be my one stop for all travel planning.
There are a few things I like: it pulls in reservations from gmail, provides basic info about my destinations, and allows me to save places to google map.
However, some improvements are seriously overdue, especially for the “Day Plans” feature:
1. Most recommended day plans are impractical by routing you back and forth in the city
2. Same goes for the magic wand feature - the results can be crazy
3. So I started to create my own day plan. That’s when things really go wild. Every time I add or remove a point of interest, the order of the route will be automatically reshuffled. Yes I can chose a new starting point, but that means more automatic shuffling. There is no way for me to plan my day to visit the places i choose, in the order I want.
4. When I click “edit” in a previously created day plan, it is automatically saved as a new plan, even if it is identical as the previous one. Please let me save the same plan.
5. Day plans customized on iPad do not show up on iPhone, although I log in using the same account
6. Not all attractions are available for day plan - they are on the map but there are no blue dots for those to be added to the plan
7. Some new reservations are not pulled in from gmail.
Please make this a better tool!
Decent Start 2/5
I love the concept and idea of having all of my trip info in one place. However, I found the app overbearing it what it suggests for you to do. The Day Trip portion and confusing and when you are trying to plan your own day the Google recommended stuff keeps showing up. It’d also be great if in the food section you could look up restaurants and save them instead of, again, being told where to eat. Great start but lacking in being user friendly.
Needs significant improvements... 2/5
- Pulling the trips from Gmail is not always perfect..trips are often duplicated or missed...
-Need better integration with Google Maps and Flights...BTW, where is the dedicated native app for Google Flights???
- Need a feature to save Airport parking location..Maps has this feature but integration with Trips is missing
- Need Real time flight info and tracking (like flightview)
- Need airport terminal maps/info (like gate guru and seat guru )
- Ability to share the trip itinerary with friends and family via Whats App..Right now, email support is available but not super useful...messages are better than email for real-time info sharing...
- Real time updates on gates and baggage claim info
It’s a boat anchor 1/5
By Not my monkeys not my circus
I don’t use my google email account for travel so it doesn’t work for me. I tried typing in Phoenix but it couldn’t find that.
Worthless - should sync with GCal 1/5
I travel approx. 75% for work. I keep all of my reservations in GCal and delete emails. It seems like a no-brained for Google Trips to sync with GCal, but it doesn’t. After reading about this app I was excited, but it doesn’t meet my needs whatsoever.
A start but a long way to go 2/5
No way to manually link emails that it didn't find automatically - like my airport transfer
Can't add any information other than the specific reservation options - like my airport transfer, pet kennel reservation or info links relevant to your trip
Can't add attachments or screen shots
An all in one trip planner this is not!
Wouldn't let me use it. 1/5
I downloaded the app and tried to sync it with my google account, but it said I wasn't allowed. No explanation. Just get lost. Thanks, google.
This App Is Accessible to the Visually Impaired, Via VoiceOver 5/5
I am delighted to report that this app is accessible to the visually impaired, via VoiceOver, Apple’s software screen reading solution for the blind and low vision.
A special thanks to the developer for insuring that this marvelous resource is available to everyone.
Don’t trust! it only shows Google partners. 1/5
Google Trips and Flights in some cases only show its partners, not the cheapest prices. Same thing with Google Flights. Sad!
Location not Found 1/5
The first thing this app asked me was where do you want to go? I said Turks and Caicos. The app just showed a gray screen. So much for planning my trip.
A must have 5/5
Really useful app.
Great app! 5/5
Fantastic way to plan out what sites you’ll see on a trip, especially for one with multiple stops.
Just wish google would hurry up and add iPhone X support!
iPhone X support is essential 1/5
iPhone X support and fix flights auto detection issue as I had to add flights manually all the time!
TripCase is better 1/5
Thought this app was a replacement for OnTheFly, or at least a better interface for Google Flights. Bring back OnTheFly it was the best tool on the market!
Let down 1/5
Worked perfectly for the few weeks leading up to my first trip to Europe. I leave tomorrow and now the app keeps crashing every time I open it. Was actually depending on it for my schedule. EDIT: Tried deleting and downloading the app again, now I lost all of my downloaded data and it won’t save anything again.
LOVE all my trip data in one place! 4/5
By Allison V
For an big upcoming trip, this app automatically organizes all of my trip data, reservation confirmations and saved places, all in one nifty app! I absolutely love the download for offline mode and sharing itineraries with family members. However, particularly with Airbnb, I have had reservations show up as duplicates due to a confirmation email and then subsequent itinerary email. I really wish there was a way to remove just one of these duplicate reservations, since I have so many and can’t handle that many extras in my itineraries list. Though I love the additional capability of being able to ADD a reservation that currently isn’t supported, such as spa or boat tour reservations.
Need Booking 3/5
Add booking capabilities, continue to enhance the “things to do”, maybe add a “what your friends did” section, and you’ll definitely have something here. Right now, still just, meh.
App is crashing 1/5
App is crashing after adding additional cities to my scheduled trip
Not optimized for iPhone X 1/5
Not optimized for iPhone X
Needs an actual calendar in the app!
Got Rid of Google Flights for this Garbage 1/5
Google got ride of their Flights app which was super convenient to use for this nonsense. You have to create a trip before you can do anything.
I started to upload my travel plans and now the app crashes. Tried restarting both the app and my iPad but no good.
I miss google flights 2/5
Please bring back google flights to the App Store this is not a good replacement.
Downloaded today and was amazed when I saw that all of my upcoming travel reservations (and past ones too) had been automatically imported from my email. Nifty! When I went to download the three legs of my trip (Rome, Florence, Venice) - it downloaded Rome and Venice easily and quickly. Then hung for eternity on the middle leg of my trip - Florence. Bummer. I tried restarting my phone and toggling the download button on and off and on again - same result. Double bummer. Can’t find anyone to actually contact at Google and the Trips help section doesn’t address my issue. I’m wondering if it’s because the dates overlap on that middle leg while I move from one city to another? Looks like I might have to try a different app.
Waiting for trip recommendations 4/5
- love that all trip stuff is in one place
- would like to create place holders
- person level info parsing would be nice. It took my parents trip and joined with mine
- photos integration would be cool
- some sort of budgeting option or showing price of tickets would be nice
- A brief weather report would help prepare for the trip like packing etc.
- Related major news which might disrupt the trip
Exactly what I was looking for in a travel planner app. Automatically downloads travel itineraries from your Gmail account. The “Need to Know” section for each city is extremely helpful for international travel.
Very reliable information 5/5
Excellent search in finding the info of travel
Good - keep the improvements coming 5/5
By Frequent Traveler USA
I like the trip planning feature - can you add the ability to have another person - with a google account - the ability to view or edit the trip - and sync between devices?
Please make a desktop site!!! 4/5
Great app and perfect for when you have started your trip. I just really would like to use the desktop when planning. I don’t like having to organize only using mobile.
Missing notes 3/5
App is so basic. It is missing the most important feature, adding your own notes or adding your custom places.
It doesn’t even allow to search a place from google maps and add it to the trips.
I don’t think it is a rocket science to enabling an option which allows custom notes
Good app but not 100% 3/5
App is good but it's not it adding all my reservation to my calendar. I see it in trips but it does not add it to my calendar. Other trips are working fine.
Promising but needs work 3/5
The app idea is amazing, join all your trip information in one place, tickets and download city maps. The day planner is the best part, except that it is not as intuitive and easy to edit as it should be, I couldn’t find a way to organize the spots as I want.
I expect that Google keep improving this app.
Needs work 3/5
While it was a little creepy to open and see trips I took over the past year but never entered into this thing (it pulls from your gmails), I quickly appreciated this feature.
But the inability to plan road trips (driving time, maps) quickly became frustrating. And if you try to visit the same city twice in a single trip the second repeat of the city gets kicked out.
It also wasn’t actually very good at picking up the trips. One complex trip simply wouldn’t “import” because the first name on the reservation was a family member’s instead of mine.
Great potential, but needs work.
Not what I thought it was 1/5
By Won ton luie
I want to plan a trip along the route I’m taking. This is only good for the final destination. I want to be able to plug in the from and to address; then tap one each stop along the way. Then have the app show me interest at each stop.
Great job at capturing end users world 5/5
I am on the older side of Millennial and appreciate fluid easy navigation. The experience is good. Google is best at capturing the users life and surrounding them with meaningful data that makes life easier. I am all about it, nothing scary they just make relevant information pertaining to the end user more accessible.
Great source of vital information when traveling internationally.
Good app to keep everything in one place but kind of creepy if you think about it. In less than a minute I had a list of everywhere I had been by just scanning my gmail account. Wow. 🤔
Doesn't seem to work 1/5
The first time I tried to use it, I put in the destination of Astoria, NY. It would not recognize the location. I could go no further with the app.
Not as good as Trip It. 1/5
I've been comparing Trip It and google has not been up to the challenge doesn't automatically find houses I'm renting, people I'm traveling with stuff. Needs work.
