Google’s prime objective is to make things easier and valuable for its users. For this reason, the search engine boss has come up with Google trips app that helps you plan each day of your trip instantly.

According to a GoodThink study, it was found that 74% of travelers feel the most stressful aspect of travel is figuring out the details.

Need of Google Trips

The life today is busy where everyone wants a break. There is a need for a new adventure if you are juggling family, school, work or the daily life demands.

Although starting a vacation could be fun but there is a lot of work that goes into planning a trip. There might be recommendations from online reviews, professional travel guides, or friends; however, figuring out how to squeeze everything you wish to do into a time frame could be stressful.

In order to reduce the hassle and help travelers enjoy their hard-earned vacations, Google introduced a new mobile app, Google Trips, to help its users instantly plan each day of the trip with just a few taps of a finger.

How Does Google Trips Work

Being a personalized tour guide, Google Trips contains key categories of information like day plans, things to do, reservations, food & drink, and more, so that you have everything you need at your fingertips.

You simply need to tap the ‘Download’ button under each trip to save it to your phone. The entire app is available offline.

With Google Trips, you can choose your own adventure. The app shows you a variety of day plans featuring the most popular daily itineraries, for the top 200 cities in the world. The search engine giant has automatically assembled the local gems, the most popular attractions, and sights, into a full day’s tour on the basis of historic visits by other travelers. For instance, you are visiting Delhi. You can choose from multiple day plans like “Red Fort”, “India Gate” etc.

Planning Each Day of your Trip

On the basis of time constraints and different interests, there is no itinerary good enough for one-size-fits-all solutions for a perfect trip. Google plans the each day of your trip like magic.For example, the online reviews recommend you to see the Taj Mahal, and you are looking for suggestions on things to do near that spot. In that case, you will have to press the “+” button in the day plans tile to jump into a map view containing all the top attractions in your destination.

In case, you are time constrained, you can also specify above the map if you have just the morning or evening, versus a full day. After that, you just have to tap and pin the Taj Mahal to build your itinerary around
