I used this for my Honeymoon trip (+13 destinations) and worked superbly. It was really helpful having all the reservation and important information in one place, within a simple timeline. The offline mode is quite good because I did not have internet in most countries. Loved the app as everything was automatically updated through gmail emails. Sure there is a lot of space for improvement and a hell lot of potential. But I still recommend it for what it is right now. Great job Google, keep improving this App!!
Well.. it all looked good until I tried to add the countries/cities I would be visiting inbetween the inbound flight and departure flight. So I would visiting 4 countries by bus tour inbetween.. added them and they mysteriously disappeared twice! E.g. land in San Jose travel to La Fortuna then to Monteverde and depart from Guatemala. Manually added La Fortuna and Monteverde. It would delete La Fortuna and Monteverde. But keep the 2 cities via plane that it got from my email.
It lacked many essential features for a trip planner. First, you can't add your only boarding pass for instance. It would be great if it allows adding PDF files for the boarding passes. Also it would be great if it gives proactive updates on the flight . It also takes so much time to sync with Gmail. And one big set back is that if you want to keep history you always need to keep all the booking emails in your inbox. For me I like to archive my emails and hence I lose history on the app. Needs a lot of enhancements
It's pretty nice having a planner that integrates smoothly with Gmail. In some cases im surprised by how efficiently it can trim down details. It can also take some more refinement, and let you add stuff like PDFs for boarding passes. Or at least it should let you import specific details from you emails. For instance Google inbox bundles up emails for trips, that you could then import to Google trips app.
Had high hopes for this so was a big let down. I entered one flight details (heathrow to Keflvik) Google tells me the flight time is 27 hours - just hope Icelandair aircraft have fuel to stay aloft for that length of time! Then as I am going onto Canada where I am travelling a lot by train (coast to coast) I wanted to put in details of my VIA rail bookings (seat and cabin numbers) but the App only lets one put flight details noting else.
I like the idea but the execution is not good. App is really limited. You cannot add your own "things you'd like to do". Eg. seasonal events, festivals. You're forced to "follow" opening hours. Also I'd like to be able to put budget and set prices for different things. But personally I think that before Google decide to do something about it - the app will be discontinued.
