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.
Link to other Travel Websites!
gxsellie on 3/31/2018
It would be helpful if you could link with Expedia or Trivago for easy access instead of inputting everything one by one.
Can’t share
Fertado Cat on 3/29/2018
This is only annoying part. I planed the trip but my husband will be driver. Want to share the plan with him. No turnaround. I have to list every place in a text message and let him manually add to his trip plan.
Emoudi on 3/28/2018
Amazing app
Tblah blah on 3/24/2018
Google will show you what it wants you to see. They will try to control you and you research. They know where you go and they see you went you’ve been good or bad. Just as Santa, google is there. To know everything about you, and sell it.
So helpful!
Ali_Giggles on 3/23/2018
Just wish I could share the trip with someone. Also wish I could add a general to do list for the whole trip, and maybe see a map of it.
Was great, but acting weird
probablyjoel on 3/23/2018
This app was great at first, but in the past few weeks, it’s stopped pulling in trip im adding. Same format of itineraries as before, just not pulling them in. Very odd, but if this gets fixed, it’ll be back up to 5 stars!!!
Love app.. Have an idea
Gbhbhbhbhvhbhvhjgjv on 3/21/2018
How about also having a forecast for the trip as well. That would be an amazing addition.
Can I Share My Trip?
E Gal on 3/21/2018
There are good feature here. The app found my flight info and that was cool. I agree with others that say planning is a hassle and I'm not really using it. Also, I'm trying to share a restaurant list with my traveling companion and I just finally logged her on to my Google account. It's a so-so app.
Cannot Collaborate with Spouse
jasoncrochon on 3/13/2018
I was trying to share with my spouse. I would like the option for someone to edit the trip. If not, at least sharing the trip with someone so they have a copy.
Needs significant improvements...
Scient5000 on 3/10/2018
- 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
Almost There
distant_shore on 3/9/2018
I really like the suggestions and information about local spots that I wouldn’t have found on my own. One thing I wish this app could do, is allow two people to log into the same trip to and plan together. My friend and I have each purchased parts of our trip and have reservations and info in our own gmail accounts that we would like to add to the trip. Without the ability to link, this is challenging. I also echo some of the other issues people stated about planning a day and the weird shuffling that the map does.
So much potential
Lrnmn on 3/9/2018
Ugh I’m so disappointed, had really high hopes from this app but after downloading it and trying to see all my reservations for my upcoming trip to Japan I realized I can only see the flights and one hotel reservations. It didn’t automatically add the Airbnb ressy I had, none of the restaurants and none of the attractions we booked. If I wanted to see my hotel and flight reservations I would have just opened my inbox, I don’t need another app for that. Would have been great to have the option to add reservations through a specific email instead of typing in the name/address etc. Another annoying thing is that I can see all my bookmarks and hotels marked on in a map. Jeez google, you can do better, I know you already know everything about me, now is the time to actually use this data.
Thumb Typer on 3/8/2018
This app is great! Very useful and fun. Discover things you may have missed.
Like it but needs a lot of improvements
Padosan on 3/3/2018
I love this app but I gave it a two star because I expect google service to have more functionality. Tripit has tons of features that google trips still needs to implement. In reservations, there is no area where I can add attractions tickets purchased online. I would have loved to use the app when I can start the app when I leave for my trip and follow thru my schedule all day thruout the trip.
soccertay442 on 3/2/2018
gives me ideas for what to do all for an entire day!! and good restaurants to try!!! exactly what I was looking for for my trip to Europe this summer!!!
Not shareable
Norcross55 on 2/25/2018
Good concept but it would be a ton more useful if I could share my trips. Also, not sure how the reservation update via gmail is supposed to work. App instructions are, at best, vague. Looks to me like this app might have been released before it was finished.
Not exhaustive or accurate
Babsporty on 2/23/2018
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
J. Mical on 2/23/2018
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
CodingAnarchy on 2/22/2018
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
Roidlee on 2/17/2018
So what's the point?
Needs work
IDoMagic on 2/16/2018
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
Jennifear on 2/15/2018
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
mcclia40 on 2/13/2018
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
Hens jebel on 2/12/2018
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
上海月 on 2/11/2018
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
Ndjjslieplsj on 2/7/2018
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
peace_meal on 2/5/2018
No automatic pickup of rez other than flights
Good Concept but Needs Improment
Yingh on 1/27/2018
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
Jeverha on 1/25/2018
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.
It’s a boat anchor
Not my monkeys not my circus on 1/20/2018
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
TigersAU98 on 1/13/2018
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
DCgnat on 1/9/2018
My issues: 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.
Liama138 on 12/30/2017
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
MarkTheWave on 12/30/2017
Hello, 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. Sincerely, Mark
Don’t trust! it only shows Google partners.
philipsism on 12/28/2017
Google Trips and Flights in some cases only show its partners, not the cheapest prices. Same thing with Google Flights. Sad!
Location not Found
Usylesses on 12/25/2017
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
mgolub on 12/18/2017
Really useful app.
Great app!
Lioblue on 12/17/2017
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
Hushero on 12/17/2017
iPhone X support and fix flights auto detection issue as I had to add flights manually all the time!
TripCase is better
Cuban77 on 12/16/2017
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
TheZactus on 12/15/2017
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!
Allison V on 12/15/2017
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.
