Useless Rather Quickly
HeadTripper on 7/15/2018
I downloaded this app based on a recommendation on a travel blog. I created my trip, but very quickly found that the search engine for particular destinations did not recognize towns that I am staying in hotels in. So, right away the trip planner is useless because there are large gaps. I searched Google maps for these towns missing in the app and they were on google maps as were the hotels. One would thing if it was in google maps, then it would be in the google trip app. App is not ready for prime time - unless you are going to a big, popular destination.
fireyeti on 7/10/2018
Would be great to be able to share trips.
Great start
fuirious on 7/9/2018
Just downloaded it and looks promising. I will love to receive notifications about my flights (check in, delays, gate, luggage belt), hotel check in/out times, time to leave to airport... Also a calendar style view that show my trip plan (different color for each city). Finally a Timeline view with all mu flights, hotels, trains, attractions...
Juxtapose7 on 7/5/2018
Planning a long and complicated trip from Newfoundland to Alabama. - it didn’t import any of my hotel or ferry reservations, despite forwarding twice. - it doesn’t access contacts to insert friends’ addresses, despite being pinned in my favorites. - when I tried to insert their addresses manually, it doesn’t recognize or find their US towns (yet found my Canadian town, population 200?) - I didn’t see any way to search for help in the app. I’m not sure what this app does correctly. I’m going back to Tripit.
Useless for vacation planning
Rbpamom on 7/3/2018
Very disappointed with this app. If you are only going to stay at the destination where your plane is landing then this is the app for you. (I do have concerns about whether it will update your flight if you get an email about a change). If you were planning on driving around and staying at different places then save yourself the trouble and find another app. You would think that since Google already has a maps program you could actually plan a road trip in the app and be able to use Google trips for the actual trip that you are taking. Since you will need other apps to stay on top of your flight, hotels, and driving plans, there is no reason to bother with this app.
Make time available for hotel!
Bonnie Love the freak on 7/2/2018
I absolutely that it pulls from my email! Just a minor suggestion. For the hotel is doesn’t allow you to use check in or check out time. It completely throws my Itinerary off. I’m super organized and I wanted to have all my info in a one stop shop. If you could change that. That would be awesome sauce!!
Not There Yet
Wabygayle on 6/30/2018
Great concept, has real promise. However, no where close to being useful yet. Your plan integrates with nothing, you can’t share it with a spouse or travel partner. Absolutely no web interface, only app. I think the most amazing aspect about this app is that, for a google product that could be so easily integrated into your google life, it doesn’t do any of that. It’s a unitasker.
Don’t waste your time
M.B. Mom on 6/28/2018
As a gmail user I was enticed by advertising that this app could import my travel confirmation emails. Ah, nope. Fail. Totally useless.
Needs improvement
Terlezki on 6/27/2018
It’s an interesting app, but very inconvenient. Would be better if day planner looked like a list of different places (still can’t get how to add a restaurant, for example) with a map. Download mode and the most of other features are great, btw.
Below expectations
Walt. on 6/20/2018
Very poor user experience. I've never really had to Google how to use a Google product before. Which is a weird sentence now that I think about it.
Great For Travel Blogging
Jordy & Mom on 6/19/2018
As a travel blogger, I have to say, “Thank You”. This app is a game changer 🙌🏻. I’m able to plan trips⛷✈️⛽️, save reservations🎟, add multiple destinations, bookmark locations 🌍/ restaurants 🍻around the areas I’m traveling too that I was to stop at, and I’m able to share all of this information with other people I’m traveling with so we are all on the same page every step of our trip!!❤️ There are two things that would be helpful for me and maybe others: 1. A built in trip expense tracker would be a game changer. It would be so nice if I could track what my trip costs are and see what I’ve spent on fuel, flights, food, hotels, entertainment exc. I know there are other apps available that have similar functionality, but having it all build into Google Trips would be ideal. 2. Having your Google Trips linked to Google Guides so you could leave reviews directly from Google Trips could be helpful. Only 4 stars for now but if u can add an expense tracker, you get 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟stars from me😉✈️!
My past trips
DDSSKARL on 6/14/2018
First time when I downloaded this app 2 weeks a go, I was amazed to see that all my past trips saved and auto pulled from my gmail account. It was such a mind blowing, to the point that I didn’t even remember that I’ve visited these places and to finally recalled these past events I’ve been. I love it. But, now I am not able to see my past trips anymore.. I didn’t even do anything or change anything in my setup setting. My setting is perfectly fine and I even disabled the button to hide my past trips and still not showing anything. I have deinstalled and reinstalled and still not fixing problems. I gave up my hope... Please make my day and fix it... thank you for your awesome work and ideas. You guys are awesome! do not have access yet...
MomOf3xxx on 6/13/2018
Google, do not email me about your product, link me to the download page, allow me to download it then say I don’t have access yet and suggest I contact Google. That’s just rude. 0 stars... doesn’t work at all.
Not helpful
acarter323 on 6/13/2018
Not user friendly, I was looking for something to help keep track of places I wanted to go on our trip to Hawaii but this app is very confusing and just doesn’t seem to be what I’m looking for. I’m still not sure how I saved something to a favorite place or how to do it again..
Fantastic App
religareCustomer on 6/12/2018
This is the best and intelligent app for planning a trip. Google brand is the best !! Would like to see following features in future: 1. Weather predictions and updates for the destination for trip duration. 2. Things to visit or stop overs for food or gas on the way in case of road trip(some sort of integration with google maps) 3. A checklist and reminder a day before journey to carry important things like car charger, fill the fuel tank, carry passport, tickets, umbrella, raincoats etc I know Google can do this..
Reservations gone
Beingherenowzzz on 6/8/2018
This should be a great app, but Google, you’re not there yet. Reservations came over from my gmail, then days later just disappeared. Re-entered them all manually, just to have them gone again the next day, both on iPad and android phone. Boo!
This is the best app for trips planning
Innovatr on 6/7/2018
Awesome app, love it
Don’t waste your time...
Heidnebe on 6/7/2018
I tried his app and thought, “Oh! I can plan my trip!” But as I use it, it gets annoying... the save button works once, one day done. But the next time I try, it doesn’t work... this is annoying and don’t waste your time....
Almost there
lm 2018 on 5/31/2018
I stared using this to plan a trip to Europe and would love to see the following: Daily calendar grid view to gauge time and drive times between attraction. And a weekly view. Desktop support-it is hard to do everything I want in the app, sometimes I need a computer to see the big picture. If it could sync with the app that would make it easier to use.
It has SO much potential, but lacks severely!
evesanz on 5/30/2018
Let me start with that I LOVE THE POTENTIAL of this app! Here are some issues that I'm having and I would deeply appreciate it if someone could advise me on how to work around these challenges. 1. Pinning sights that show up on the app, but don't allow me to pin them on my Daily Plan for some reason. Then organizing my Daily Plans in the order I would like. 2. I'm having issues with it importing reservations that I forwarded to to my Gmail account. Ugh! 3. Removing Suggested Daily Plans that I'm not interested in. 4. Syncing the apps on my iPhone and iPad, and would love to be able to access it on my computer also. There's so much potential with this app that I would even be willing to PAY for it for all these fixes!!
Needs many improvements
AliPSU on 5/27/2018
I was very excited to find this app but was quickly disappointed. Day trips are nearly impossible to plan using the app. New reservations/ reservation emails do not populate into existing trips. These two downfalls make the app impractical for ongoing vacation planning. Save yourself the trouble and skip this app for now. Hopefully google can make some adjustments to turn this into a quality product.
Nothing I'm looking for exists
andymohawk on 5/27/2018
I wanted help finding more cool places and instead found a big goose egg.
Good looking, light on substance
odells428 on 5/27/2018
A nice clean looking Google style app, and well organized pages for multi-stop trips. I wish there was a calendar view for planning purposes, or sync with Google Calendar.
So much potential. But needs some basic features
Testsjnfbfbrb on 5/26/2018
Thank you guys for making an awesome app, but it’s not usable yet. It needs a few more things 1. Flesh out reservations so I can add my itinerary. This was the reason I could not use the app, the magic planner was a waste because I could not add my already booked activities with tour guides. 2. Shares trips, no one travels alone that also needs to plan the itinerary to this level of detail. Shared trips are a must. Another nonstarter for me 3. Sync with google calendar. Seems pretty obvious to me. You guys are doing awesome, just needs some basic functionality to be useful.
Wasted bandwidth
books54751 on 5/25/2018
Worthless app. I should have believed the previous low star reviews. I thought, "Oh these people are disgruntled about something, give it a try." Well, if they weren't disgruntled before trying this app, they would be afterwards. I am surprised Google even allowed their name on this app. Maybe their quality control people fell asleep and accidentally approved this app. I could not even make a plan with places that I know exist. I read a review that said you have to put places on your map first. Sort of defeats the purpose of this app, doesn't it. Once I'm in my map I can plan things out with pin drops. Discover places you say? I found more places by typing a query in the Map app than I did in the Trips app. Pull it from the app store. Save face and admit the pitch forth is app sounded good but the execution of the app is a disaster.
Disappointed 😢
I hate making reviews138569 on 5/23/2018
I was really excited to use this app to plan an upcoming trip and after a few hours of trying to navigate it I realize it’s not for me. There are design flaws such as the “day plan” feature not allowing you to create a plan of your own, but auto-generating plans with things not even on your saved items. You can’t click on a restaurant or place on the map and have it come up to save, but have to leave the map and search for it and THEN add it to your saved items. All in all a good concept but it just doesn’t work for me.
Is this app a competitor of Trip Advisor?
Al@a2 on 5/23/2018
If so it’s up to that standard 😳 This Google app is either the most useless or the most difficult to search. The on-line/FB ad said I could find cheap flights on the site BUT I don’t see where or how. I have traveled in 26 countries, 14 in the last 5 years using various apps for flights and hotels but so far I find this one useless.☹️
Must have for travellers
Tikyo Salas on 5/17/2018
I only travel a couple of times a year so I can go months without using this app. When I do though, Google trips is indispensable. It collates (almost) all of the travel related info I receive and makes them easy to access.
Not google worthy
Love this but I want cars on 5/15/2018
Google. Try TripIt or buy the company. That app is superior. If it were integrated into Google Trips, then we’d have a real app. Until then, this app is a sales pitch for various travel sites under the Google umbrella...
Please add share trip !
goldenbullet16 on 5/15/2018
Please add sharing to friends/ add friends ! It’ll be a great option to plan a trip together with friends and so they can see the planned trip as well
Almost great
Napsdoc on 5/14/2018
Needs to have a desktop or website function. Needs ability to add food / beverage stops ad lib to day trip section and or drop pin locations
Map view
jd0923 on 5/13/2018
Would love to see my locations on a map
NickNickL on 5/13/2018
Made airline reservations first time using app. App shows travel location and dates in banner. Click on Reservations. Says none. Back to Expedia.
Crappiest App Ever
BizTraveler1300004 on 5/9/2018
Software engineer of 20+ years: can’t figure out how to add day plans, how to save places on a map for the trip, or show an itinerary.
Very glitchy. Come on this is Google, not Windows 95
andreykrasilnikov on 5/8/2018
I like the idea of keeping all your travel info together. Because you may have booked your flights/hotels/events on different websites. And it works beautifully, it even tells you about flight delays and gates. FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS. I have been using his app for two years and for the entire two years all of my future reservations have been CONSISTENTLY deleted a few days after add them to the list. This makes this app practically unusable - do not rely on it to store important trip information, better use old fashioned notes
Missing some of the basics
where is my next trip? on 5/2/2018
I love google products so I am giving it a try after years of loyalty to tripcase. So far, i found it missing a more comprehensive snapshot of the trip timeline which is a must for this type if app. By this, I mean a timeline with essentials as times, gates, and status for flights, and check in/out times and addresses for hotel reservations. Does not recognize and it does not allow to add ferry confirmation, or combinations of them with bus. If google manage to add them, I’ll change the review or write another one but for now they started behind from what it is already out there
Limited Inbox Compatibility
CaGeoChris on 5/1/2018
The trip I just put together won’t show up in inbox. That seems silly
Needs Share Function
Bobjoethehhhans on 4/29/2018
I want to be able to share my trip with my friend who im going with
Not working
Shadow1477 on 4/28/2018
I installed it and it worked great. After a month out of the blue, it deleted ally upcoming trips. I tried to research my issue but no luck.
Not what I Hoped for
consultlo on 4/28/2018
I was excited about this app and planning our adventures around NYC. At first I figured the problems I was having were just a learning curve. I finally got one day plan loaded and when I tried to do a second it wouldn’t let me add certain locations, which defeats the whole Point. I’ll be using excel to track the info I guess.
Great App
Pjrboyle on 4/27/2018
Provides easy access to a wealth of info on the places where you are and where you want to go. Links to maps, videos, & photos, with info on times open and descriptions of sights & links to restaurants, museums, and lots of other activities. The App also finds and organizes all your travel info - hotel, flight, restaurant, and other reservations and displays a summary of all past trips. It’s a great App.
Please add sharing option for day plans
aizirk26 on 4/22/2018
This app is amazing but we need the sharing option for the day plans
Needs work
kareneyre on 4/19/2018
I really wanted to like this app but it needs some work. I love the functionality of most google apps for their ease of use but I was really frustrated by this one. The day trip planner is where all of my anger is aimed. I want to decide where to go and the order I go there but this app keeps rearranging and adding other places. There are also some small food places I wanted to stop that won’t register as a place to visit. It’s great to store basic info but if you want to set your own plan use something else.
Great concept but...
SlowOkie on 4/15/2018
I was excited about this app when I started planning my trip. I had notes scratched on paper and pinned on Pinterest and saved in bookmarks, but this app made saving the places I want to go so much easier! But, one of my notes includes a specialty yarn store and I can’t find a way to add it to my trip. Since I know the yarn store is on Google Maps, I’m truly surprised I can’t add it to my trip. Maybe I am missing something obvious. If I figure out how to do it I will change my rating.
Not flexible and incredibly frustrating
wendolynaragon on 4/14/2018
I’ve been using Sygic Travel and it’s a great app for creating an itinerary, but it doesn’t always include updated information and if you need to add anything, say restaurants, there’s no way to categorize them. So I was really looking forward to seeing if Google Trips could get it right. Unfortunately, it’s more of a guide book than a trip planner. You can’t actually customize it to include your hotel, restaurants, or anything else not tagged in their map. And what makes that even more frustrating is that there is the “customize” option, which again adds places into your itinerary and then rearranges them whenever you add anything else. So if you’re looking for a travel guide that plans the day for you, this will work. But if you’re a planner at heart like I am, stick with an app like Sygic.
Can be Enhanced
K_Kartik on 4/9/2018
I have better app than this
Would love being able to share my trip
Infinity_Machine on 4/6/2018
I love this app, but would really like to be able to share my trip with other people I might be traveling with
Can’t make own itinerary
ZP25 on 4/4/2018
Making your own itinerary should be easy but it’s not. I’ve tried multiple times but they insist on creating your itinerary for you. Not intuitive at all
Nice. Need improvements
Latiuk on 4/3/2018
It’s a nice app with very good ideas, specially importing data from your gmail account. But, important issues are easily found: The flight information don’t match. Some of my flight information were showing different dates, hours, origin and destination. Hotel addresses wrongly displayed. I assume based on the hotel name it tries to determine the address. It would be at least useful to have a desktop version, imaging add a +15 days trip using cellphone keyboard. I also could not find some places that are easily found on google maps. Until this version, not the best google app.
Needs to allow sharing with others
Amyofoz on 4/1/2018
Searching things to do and places to visit is really easy. Makes it very difficult, if not impossible to share and collaborate on this trip with others. I’m not going on a trip alone, so it would be nice if Google recognized this and allowed me to share the itinerary with my trip mates. Also I would like easier integration with AirBnB reservations. I understand google doesn’t make money off of my airBnB reservations, but still would be nice.
