Replaced TripIt 5/5
Google Trips works well enough that I could no longer substantiate paying $49/year for TripIt Pro.
Very easy to use app 5/5
By Laurent Hesnard
Every traveler could use this!
All good but..... 4/5
..... there is no way of sharing the itinerary with others. The app isn't as intuitive. Once I got a trip set up, I tried to share it with people going on the trip but without success. The app has so much potential. But until improvements are made, I am still using numbers/excel to plan my trips.
All in one 5/5
This is exactly what my wife and I were looking for, and the fact that it's integrated with Gmail is so so nice. We're planning a long term trip together and this is just what we needed.
My only request would be to somehow make trips collaborative, right now my wife and I both sign into one account in order to plan together.
Handy automatic trip itinerary maker 5/5
It's amazing how helpful it is to have my itinerary automatically assembled, downloadable in case I don't have a connection, and with helpful traveling tips like things to do. Love this!
Would be 5 star with just 3 features 2/5
What's Missing (deal killers):
(1) Ability to share itineraries, ideally with specific contacts, for instance Google contacts, as with Google Docs;
(2) Ability to return to a city within the same itinerary, without the itinerary looking like you've been there the whole time. Example: flying into one city and traveling around a country to other cities and/or countries, eventually looping back to the original city before catching the flight out. What's up with not being able to do that?
(3) Ability to add a lesser known city.
I put those things first, because it would have saved me so much time had I known these weren't features in advance. Really, Google? A web app that doesn't allow content sharing?!
(1) Easy to build itineraries;
(2) Easy to add activities that are already there, like sites to see, where to eat, kid activities, etc;
(3) Easy to see what's open when;
(4) Suggestions for day plans;
(5) Nice layout and easy to use;
(6) Can be seen across devices and downloaded locally, so great while traveling.
Simply the best travel app out there 5/5
Simply the best travel app out there, it pulls your trips out of gmail automatically.
Not that useful 1/5
Much bigger fan of check my trip. App doesn't do too much
Has potential 1/5
By Will Marvel
This app has potential but is really in a beta version currently. I recently visited Lisbon, Portugal. I stayed in a centrally located hotel. There were multiple sights in each direction. The app would suggest walking tours that started miles away from my hotel. It made absolutely no sense.
Needs sharing option 2/5
Like the idea of this app but spent quite a bit of time setting up some trips only to find that I could not share it with my travel buddies. Which rendered it pretty useless.
Good for ideas but not good for planning 1/5
You can't search and add items manually.
I believe this app has a lot of good uses. So far, I haven't discovered them all as I am still learning to navigate through it.
The worst 1/5
Why can't I just search for a flight? Most counterintuitive app ever.
Google Trips 5/5
Informative, Simple, & Interactive this app is your personal tour guide!
Great planner. Some limitations. 2/5
By Troy W
* beautiful interface
* easy to explore/browse a city
* integrated reservation emails is very handy
* saved places end up in an unorganized pile
* only able to add places to itinerary from an auto-generated list that may not include places you want to add
* no way to search for places (browse only)
I want to love this app, but I can't recommend. It's great for browsing, but not for planning.
Nice but confusing 4/5
By Abhi U
Needs simplistic interface
Nice idea, but not user friendly 1/5
By Lunch Gopher
Very frustrating that it does not update accurately
Custom Locations? 1/5
You can enter your hotel in the app but you can't use it in your day plan?
Not sure if I like this app 3/5
It seems to like it has potential, but I'm not able to add my own places/things to do. It seems to only let you select places that are already in the app, those selected by Google. I see what I want to add on the map, but if it doesn't have one of Google's blue dots, it can't be added to my trip plan. I also wish directions were more integrated into the app, so that it doesn't need to open google maps to show me.
Too early to release 1/5
Way too many kinks to be released at this point. Shows promise, but clearly designed by people that travel little. You can't remove items from an itinerary that have been cancelled or amended; are missing key modes of transit (Ferry, as an example ... let alone rideshare or booked car services); and the content is not curated and lifted from the search engine base results.
Needs lots of improvements 2/5
By Love Carol
It's nice to have trip reservations when you're offline but the additional information like restaurant recommendations and things to do in each city are really poor. Come on Google, you can do better!
Worst app ever! 1/5
So bad! I got almost die!!! Fxxx
Has Potential 2/5
This app has a lot of potential. However, it would've made more sense and made it more practical if we were able to create & write our own itinerary.
Awesome travel planner 5/5
Does great job of beautiful index your travel info from email (pretty magical experience) and good overview of local activities / venues.
Nice app, but missing flexibility 3/5
I echo some other comments about lack of flexibility in documenting your itinerary. For example, I have tickets to an event, but I can't find it in any of the options and had to enter a note instead. This is a great start, but hopefully Google will expand capabilities to make this a one-stop travel app.
During 1st use, freeze when downloading trips 1/5
By college professor
Another option 1/5
I was going to use this one but since there were issues with some of the features I searched and found another one that is customizable. Try Camtinerary. (Apple only)
Must have app 5/5
I can't imagine travel without this. No need to add anything, locations, booking numbers, phone numbers, and I don't have to do anything.
Check it out 5/5
Today is the first day I'm trying this app. However it is totally working for what I need. Searching for places to go family friendly and I'm totally digging it! Just the app I needed!!!!
Keeps deleting my trip!!!! 1/5
I have an extensive trip with multiple cities that I keep trying to make an itinerary for, but every time I make it (which takes me FOREVER) it gets deleted the next time I go on the app!!! What's the point of using the app then? PLEASE FIX SOON GOOGLE
Great App. Very Useable 5/5
I love that this app was my travel plans, makes note of them and then makes suggestions.
Crappy app 1/5
I tried to plan a trip using this crap: it continue to delete segments that I manually added (I did it 5 times before giving up). It also scraps your plans without requesting for access, which is privacy concerning. Fire the PM
Odd quirks, but still pretty good 4/5
I have only had this for a few days. It seems to pick up some travel e-mails, but does miss things. That is not a big problem because I like to enter my own stuff.
The big problem is that it picked up stuff from an e-mail that was in error and I found you cannot edit erroneous auto entries. It would be nice to be able to edit a couple of details rather than delete the whole entry and redo by hand. Come on folks, that should be a no brainer. You should correct that problem.
Please add map 3/5
By Blake E.
Please add the map function so I can look at locations based on price. The full google flights website has it and it's fantastic. On a phone, it's impossible to find.
Great app! Very easy to use! Practically builds itself!!
Love the features, but you can't customize a trip 2/5
I loved the idea of this app. Everything I wanted in a travel app. So I created a trip with multiple cities, and when the app is closed it doesn't save the trip! I tried importing my itineraries from gmail emails, which worked, it if I had a city that I don't have an email for, you can't add it to a trip. It will be gone the next time you start the app. I tried removing the sync with Gmail option and that didn't make any difference. We are planning a 4 week trip to Thailand, visiting 5 different destinations, and this seemed like the perfect app for that, but it just never saved my trip which really sucked. I sent emails and messages to the team that created this app but never got a response. Too bad, it's got so much potential.
Needs to improve 3/5
I love that it has all the reservations I've booked through my gmail but I wish it would allow me to write my own itinerary of what to do on everyday. I keep browsing around I just don't see any easy option for editing and creating. Looks like I'm using iPhone notes for it. Google please improve on that, not everyone goes to the most popular scenic spots.
I love this app!! 5/5
I always was a fan of Google and everything they have done, but this just tops it off!
Wellllll...not loving it 2/5
By Mena Reynolds
I am super irritated right now because I cannot really create my own itinerary that would allow me to start at my hotel and then work my way out to the destinations I want within my city. I also can't figure out how to add things that aren't already downloaded as part of the city's destination. This was the whole point of my downloading this app. I wanted to be able to create an itinerary that I controlled.
Good but needs work 4/5
Cleaned up my email to get more space on my phone and lost everything. This is a problem with gmail though.
Also needs a search feature for other restaurants than the select few they offer. Same with hotels.
Keeps me informed and up to date on all information regarding my travels.
I also enjoy how it syncs to my other google applications using my profile/gmail.
Almost has everything I'm looking for. 4/5
Planning a road trip, this app has so much info for places to see and do in the main cities, but lacks the ability to show driving directions between cities or show any accommodations along the way such as camp grounds or rest stops. I realize I could switch to google maps but who wants to keep switching between apps.
Crap of an app 1/5
Twice I have built my upcoming 2 month driving trip...reservations, starred items suggested, etc. and twice it has just completely disappeared. No feedback from google when I sent them feedback the first time. Doubt if they will give me any on my second feedback I submitted through the app.
Great app, but ... 4/5
I recently discovered this app and love how easy it is to use (and to download offline guides!), but I wish that you could add collaborators to a trip, and I also wish it worked in landscape mode on the iPad.
Great App 5/5
By LD H
Enjoy the app and the ease of using it. The only addition I would like to see is weather/temp info of the locations. Keep up the work.
No Sharing 2/5
Most people have families or dont' live alone and need to be able to share their trips with their families/partners. Not possible with this app. So a bit dead on arrival compared to TripIt and all the alternatives.
Almost awesome 4/5
Everything looks good but realised that after cancellation of flight or car reservation it still shows there. There is no manual way to delete auto fetched reservation. Also dew reservations like one via Priceline is not detected--- possibly due to two confirmation numbers in it- one of Priceline and other of raserbstion vendor
Great needs sharing 4/5
Great app, need to be able to share trip itineraries
Missed my hotel reservations 1/5
By Family Man - Clay
My assistant forwarded my hotel reservation to my gmail account and Google trips does not pick it up. Would be great if you could email your itinerary to it. I switched back to TripIt Professional. I need a travel organizer that works and is simple to use and doesn't miss much. This app still needs work.
Five stars 5/5
