App Reviews

  • Good Concept but Needs Improment

    By Yingh
    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!
  • Save yourself the headache

    By mcclia40
    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.
  • Not for non-vacation travelers

    By UsherMocha
    I’ve only installed the app for about ten minutes so bear in mind I haven’t tried many of the features. For vacation planning, it might be okay. But for someone traveling regularly to familiar cities (not just for business), there are far two many distractions. There are far too many clicks involved to see itinerary details. This is essentially why I won’t continue looking at the app. I love the Trips feature built into Google Inbox and thought this would be an extension of that but Google Inbox actually provides a better view of the itinerary than Trips. And both pale in comparison to TripIt which this app inspired me to revisit after relying on Inbox only for the last year or so. Maybe if this were called Google Vacations I’d be less disappointed. But it’s been nice reviewing my old trips in TripIt because of this app so I can’t fault it too much.
  • Not flexible and incredibly frustrating

    By wendolynaragon
    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.
  • LOVE all my trip data in one place!

    By Allison V
    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.
  • Not exhaustive or accurate

    By Babsporty
    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.
  • Not very flexible

    By ThisIsMy#5nickname
    Downloaded the App and was excited. Tried it out with a trip, but could not set my days up without suggestions getting in the way. Spent about and hour working with the app. Want to do Tokyo Disneyland for a full day, but suggestions kept getting in the way. It created its own day rather than the day I create and then another day was automatically created with Disneyland plus other suggestions. I deleted everything, saved, still had the suggestions hanging around. Deleted the entire trip and started again and ran into the same problem. This made me feel more stress than I need while planning a fun trip. Tried everything another day, same frustration. I am tech savvy, but this became a hassle that I didn’t want. Sorry. Deleted the App.
  • Wasted bandwidth

    By books54751
    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.
  • My past trips

    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!
  • Great For Travel Blogging

    By Jordy & Mom
    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😉✈️!
