Google has launched a new app that aims to be a personal travel planner. The app Google Trips was launched on Monday and pulls information from your Gmail and Google Maps usage, which it then organizes into individual trips.
From there you can click on each individual trip and then see the reservations that you already have booked, as well as suggestions of things to do in the area like food, drink, and must see attractions. This is also makes it super easy to find information like emails with booking details and confirmation numbers, since it sorts through all of your old emails for you.
The app also offers a Day Plan for 200 different cities, which offers full day itineraries including the travel time required between the suggested stops. These can also be downloaded so that they can be accessed later if you are not going to be online for the whole time that you are traveling.
Richard Holden, a vice president of product management at Google has explained their intentions.
“We’re doing a great job on the planning stages, but we really need to help consumers when they’re actually at their destination.”
Basically the app might be able to save a lot of time when it comes to keeping details organized. The free app is available on both Android and iOS.
