Google Trips Makes Travel Planning Easier

Monday, April 3rd, 2017 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

Google has a free app for your Android or iPhone that might make your next trip easier.  The Google Trips Travel Planner is available for download from either the Google Play Store or the App Store on your iPhone.


So what can it do for you?  If you use Gmail, it can automatically detect reservation emails and add them to your travel plan.



Your flight, hotel, rental car, and restaurant reservations will be grouped together in one place for easy access. You’ll also get suggestions for things to do and places to eat and drink.

For many popular destinations, you’ll see a customizable map with suggestions for activities. You can alter the map based on your personal preferences. You’ll also see special travel tips customized for your location.


I think we’ve all experienced wanting to hit up a local attraction only to find out that it’s closed for the day or for the season when you get there.  Google Trips gives you the hours for attractions and also shows you reviews from fellow travelers.

Suggestions for activities are organized into categories like Sports and Indoor Activities.


The app is free for both Android and iOS and available for immediate download in your phone’s app store. Of course, for it to work, you will need a data connection where you’re going.
