Google announces new travel planning app: Google Trips

trips

I use TripIt for travel planning, but I’m going to give the new Google Trips a try. It stores your travel plans offline, so you don’t need to have a Wi-Fi or cellular connection to find directions or access your itinerary.

When I installed it, it scanned my gmail and did a great job of finding my upcoming flight, restaurant, and hotel reservations.

Google Trips makes exploring the world easier by organizing your essential info in one place and making it available even offline. Get activity suggestions based on what’s nearby, customizeable day plans, and your travel reservations from Gmail.

AUTOMATIC TRIP ORGANIZATION

Your travel reservations are automatically gathered from Gmail and organized into individual trips. Each trip contains day plans, things to do, food and drink suggestions, and more.

BUNDLED RESERVATIONS

See your flight, hotel, rental car, and restaurant bookings in one place without having to search for them individually.

DAY PLANS

For several hundred of the world’s top places, find popular day plans organized on a map that you can customize based on your interests and available time.

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS

Find out when you’re near popular attractions (and whether they’re open) as well as reviews and ratings from other travelers.

THINGS TO DO

Every trip contains ideas for things to do automatically organized into useful categories like Top Spots and Indoors or Outdoors. For many of the world’s top places, you’ll get curated local suggestions and travel tips.

OFFLINE ACCESS

No Internet? No problem. Google Trips is available offline, so you’ll always have access to your info.
