    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.

    This app doesn’t let you created and save your own custom day trip between places. Until they change this it basically defeats point of using the app. Until this is modified 2 is best rating that can be given

    I like the idea and concept of being able to plan out my trips. However there are some critical misses. When I look at the map of saved places that I created in google maps not all places appear in trips. Therefore when I go create a day trip I can’t select where to begin since the locations don’t exists. We are going on wine tours and I would like to have the ability to add other types of appointments to our reservations. Also we changed hotels for our trip and shows us now as staying in two hotels and I haven’t found a way to remove the cancellation. These hotels were added from google reading my gmail.
  • Only airlines

  • Not for non-vacation travelers

    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.

    Google Trips helps you discover places to go & things to do, at the destination of your trip. However, it offers no help for planning or organizing the trip itself: • Drive vs fly vs ride (train or bus) • Route planning • Lodging enroute (given criteria like drive no more than 8 hours, avoid Atlanta at rush hour, hotels with 4-Star reviews, etc. ) • Rest & fuel stops • Places to see along the way Oh, and budgeting for the trip.
  • Nope

    Only really works if you are committed to the googleverse. Gmail is helpful, not yahoo. Also doesn’t allow you to share trips with fellow travelers. No expense tracking/sharing function.
