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.
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
Super helpful to gather all travel info from your gmail into one place. No more looking for confirmations!!
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
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!!!!
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.
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.
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!!!!
