Day plans flaw 4/5
The app is almost the perfect travel app, but my only gripe is that on the day plans you cannot chose anything as a destination. Only the spots in blue can be added, so you can’t include the hotel or food in the food plan, which is a shame, so I’ve resorted to google sheets for my itinerary. Not devastating, but disappointing. Please fix and this will be the only app for travel.
Fantastic app! 5/5
By Selena MG
Trips bundles relevant trip information into one trip listing suggestions for each site. This is a particularly wonderful app as a reminder of the trips taken for when you need to list all locations you have been to.
Ok app 3/5
By Field School '25
This app is ok, but it could improve. It doesn't have many options, and is hard to navigate through. I think it would be helpful if this app also had a packing list feature, so instead of having to get lots of apps to plan one trip, you only had to download one. Otherwise, this is a great app!
Cool app but unreliable 2/5
For the past several months, I’ve been planning a trip that will start next month. This app keeps deleting reservations that I’ve already entered. I’ve had to manually re-enter several flights 3 times already. Also there’s no “sync” button to ask the app to upload reservations from your email account, so it *sometimes* notices a new reservation and other times I just have to go in and add it. Then re-add it when the app somehow forgets it. This apps needs improvement, won’t be able to use it for my upcoming trip because it is unreliable, but I hope it will be better in the future.
Super helpful 5/5
Not only was this app convenient, organized and so helpful, it actually gave me piece of mind! They give you information about where you’re traveling, like how to get ready emergency services, how to get around, the currency exchange, etc.
I had so much hope since I generally like everything Google, but this seems to be an afterthought and not something anyone is paying attention to. It only syncs with airline and hotel reservations in Gmail and does not seem to recognize Airbnb. There is no way, other than notes, to record tour reservations. You cannot search for and map restaurants and sites that you want to check out, you can only scroll through their limited selection. All in all it is a disappointment and I am moving on. A spreadsheet is better than this.
Needs to integrate Google flights 2/5
Given Google’s amazing Google flight feature, I thought this would make finding and booking flights easier. Rather, it is just a way to spend unnecessary time typing information into an app of already booked flights
All in one place 5/5
Super helpful to gather all travel info from your gmail into one place. No more looking for confirmations!!
Google trips 3/5
It’s good that I can list saved places but the day plans is not ideal for customization. Can’t pin my places so it is worthless to me. Such a shame
Gave it a try twice, it’s a NO for me 2/5
At first I thought I didn’t know how to work with the app. So I deleted it and after a couple of months I gave it a try again. Without any luck. I tried to find out how to put my own points of interest into the day planner( this would be awesome if it was possible in the app). But no, it only shows u default day plans without the possibility of adding your own points of interests. The app is totally confusing and I had to go ok youtube to find out how to use some of the options. Google please change this thing up. Especially the day planner!!!!
Great until it misses a reservation 2/5
Works great, but when it misses a reservation there is no way to attach the email.
A number of vendors are not supported.
Hopefully they will fix it soon.
Day trips - basically useless 2/5
As other reviews have noted the day plan does not actually let you plan your days.
Since TripAdvisor removed there day by day trip planning from their app I have been looking for another app to use for planning trips. When I first looked into google trips it seemed like this would be the perfect app for me to use. However, the “magic wand” used for day planning does not allow for edited of days. Also it is hit or miss whether items from emails getting added to the trip.
See vdumlao’s review for my sentiments! Really love the sleekness at the outset but what a bummer that you can’t collaborate on a trip with others.
Everything gone 1/5
By adec me
I liked the app a lot because it puts flights and hotel reservations in one place.
I didn’t do anything and then recently EVERYTHING DISAPPEARED!!!!
Everything gone 1/5
By alex linhares
This WAS an amazing app.
Then, all of a sudden, EVERYTHING, past and future, is gone. There's nothing there. I have a super complex upcoming trip in which I have to find/print a plethora of emails and details.
Moral of the story: live by the cloud, die by the cloud.
It could have been great. 2/5
With Googles exhaustive database this should’ve been a slamdunk. But instead you can’t share an itinerary and the the daily plans seem to be haphazardly thrown together.
Such a disappointment 1/5
I was hopeful that this could be a wonderful app for creating plans for an upcoming trip to France. What I quickly realized less than an hour into fighting through various features in the app is that it is utterly useless for anyone who is actually trying to plan ahead. The only people this app could be beneficial for are those who do zero planning and now randomly find themselves on vacation somewhere looking for something to do.
Does allow you to plan your day from any location to any locations, by manually adding. Locations are restricted to known google sights within the location. Does not account for travel from one city to another. Does not allow you to add events tickets, tour reservations. It does not give you a summary of your trip, e.g. a 10 day trip that includes multiple cities, it doesn’t let you plan Day 1, 2,... so you can have an full itinerary with locations, travel, reservations, events that are planned for each day.
Completely Useless 1/5
1. Unable to share a trip. When tapping the emailed link for the shared trip, half the time it will not load. It does not save the trip to the app for next time when it actually does load.
2. Deleted copious notes despite them being saved multiple times as they were taken.
3. Does not allow reservations to be added unless there is a corresponding email confirmation in the associated gmail inbox.
Do not trust this app.
Pretty ok 4/5
My only gripe is that when you’re inputting reservations, it only allows you to plan “meals.” There should be a separate tag for activities that doesn’t have a restaurant icon but that draws from the same database. Otherwise: this app is good for planning trips, suggesting places to go and letting you favorite ideas about activities. In summary pretty ok.
App is and interface is clunky
Idea is good 2/5
I wish I could add restaurants. I can’t search specific ones I want to go to and they aren’t on any of the lists provided.
Big NOPE 1/5
Was excited to see an itinerary app by google but it falls so short. Cannot make an actual itinerary at all. It’s essentially a tourist suggestions app. I might as well be using tripadvisor. Super lame.
Can't delete a reservation? That's insane 1/5
Google trips doubled up one of my reservations and I don't think there's a way to delete one. I can't delete the associated email because I need one reservation. I don't see how it's possible this thing could even come out of whatever even comes before alpha without this feature. Ridiculous.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
Another failed app by Google
Works alright but could be awesome 3/5
Helpful to have all hotel and air reservations auto-load and like that you can share the itinerary with others. However, I would expect more from Google especially with more use of Maps. Here’s my top wish list:
1) Addresses link into maps for navigation
2) Ability to create a single trip and all reservations that fall within the dates go into one trip (currently for my longer/multi-destination trips I end up with several smaller individual trips)
3) Recognize AirBnB reservations (they don’t auto-load and I usually then don’t manually add them in, too tedious)
4) ability to send reservations for activities, cruises (which currently don’t auto-load) and any other planned excursion.
5) Ability to invite others to a Trip (not just the “share” feature)
6) Visualize the trip on Maps ( would be great for my longer 2/3 week trips covering a larger area)
No purpose useless 1/5
Waste of time don’t know the importance of this app can even look up flights making you download map for what I could get those pics online even better still wonder what is the importance of this app
Potential to be way better 3/5
I have used this app for a couple years now and appreciate that it gathers my reservations in one spot so I can quickly reference a confirmation number or a check-in time. However it consistently misses a good number of travel reservations in Gmail (either sent directly to me or forwarded to me) and I need to manually create and sometimes re-create trips. I’m planning a honeymoon next year and it appears that my manually created trip has disappeared somehow.
Excellent app but please fix this 4/5
I just updated it but when I searched the new destination, the photos were not loaded even the network connection is good. Please fix it as soon as possible. I love this app.
The most convenient app ever! I adore Google company. Thank yiu, guys for your work.
No Sharing? 2/5
By Obvious apathy
How do the “people” giving a 5-star, “couldn’t be better” rating justify the complete lack of an option to share and collaborate? Seems like a basic requirement when planning and traveling with someone else and the double work it necessitates renders the app unrealistic as a planner unless traveling alone.
Good, but Daily Plan is restictive 3/5
By Michael Ashton
👍 Automatically adds flights, reservations, maps and saved places.
👎 Daily Plan is too restrictive. I want to create a plan with my stated/saved places on the map. Also I want to edit re-order the itinerary.
I guess I’ll just keep using Apple Notes and Google Maps until they update.
Good effort though! Please keep developing this
Convenient travel organizer. 4/5
Easy to use, mini travel guide & organizer using information drawn from your Gmail account.
Please add Airbnb emails 3/5
Right now the email engine does not read the emails reservation from Airbnb. Adding reservations by hand is so last year ;).
It’s great. I especially like the day plan feature! 5/5
By JG King
I was excited, until... 1/5
Until I realized customizing day plans was creating more plans, instead of the one selected for edit; each time a change is made, a new day plan is created. Not sure why this is the case, it it was enough to push me away after setting it all up 👎🏼
Wish I could actually use it to book things 2/5
Google Flights is my favorite way to book flights - cheap and easy. I was hoping this app would incorporate the easy web interface/booking process available online. I’m currently using the Kayak app even though I don’t like it as much, simply because there is no mobile option for Google Flights. I’ll switch as soon as there is one.
Useful when it works 2/5
The app is great for traveling, when it works. After the first couple of launches, the “where do you wanna go” search bar disappear and I can add new trips. The only solution I’ve found is reinstalling the app, until the search bar disappears again and i gotta repeat the process, kinda frustrating.
Keeps deleting reservations 1/5
By Epic. 🐍
Not only did it not pick up on my emails, after manually entering the reservation details for flights, it keeps clearing them. Very disappointed.
Pretty Good 4/5
The app’s graphics are good. Information is laid out nicely, and it even downloaded details from several previous trips I had taken. I would like to see an option to add cruise reservations in the same way you can add flights and hotels. Seems odd that Google would not have accounted for the fact that so many people take cruises as part of their vacations. If cruise details were added then I would have given the app a 5-Star Rating.
Booking tickets and passes 5/5
The google trips app is not letting anyone book tickets for the (musement company) through the app. Anything we add to the cart to purchase the cart is empty. We get 20% off if we book through the google trips app. The other companies is not having the same problem.
Google Flights 3/5
I downloaded Google Trips in hope to find something similar as Google Flights available on Android. But unfortunately this app doesn’t provide flight reservation service. I don’t blame the app for anything as i really didn’t use it. It is just a request to kindly develop a google flights for ios as well.
This needs work 1/5
I can’t edit the image, big no. It’s only pulling half the itinerary, so my outgoing flight isn’t even listed. I could add it, but then what’s the point of this app?
Google Trips 1/5
By Isaac H 123
Great Idea and suggestions for where to go are great. But it does not like my Amtrak tickets. Trip it recognized the tickets but Google couldn’t do it. What a pain!!
Best money saving app!!! 5/5
I use this app for saving money on tickets, tours and events. I have save so much money using this app!! Put in your trip destination and go to the “discounts” tab. Get your guide and Musement both offer 20% off popular ticket items like: City Go cards, theme park tickets, tours, etc. We travel frequently and this app has save us a lot of money!!
Love it! 5/5
I don’t understand why this app has so many negative reviews. As someone who travels a lot, this app is very helpful. It automatically keeps all my flight information and hotel reservations in one easily accessible place so I don’t have to go digging through emails searching for it later.
Not Quite There 1/5
By Trust me I'm mormon
Was Really Hoping that Google flights would be integrated into the app.
It does not let you share itinerary (day plans) with your travel partners. Even when the reservations were shared, your travel partners will not see the address, only the reservation date and confirmation number. Everytime you u edit a day plan, u have to save it under a new name and go back to the main page to delete the old plan. Please don’t waste your time with this useless travel app!
