Are you a traveller but keep forgetting things about your itinerary like hotel location, flight tickets, places to visits. Now you don't need tot care about these much but enjoy your travel. Gmail/inbox was already collecting related information at one place for you , Google trips is the separate app for same initiative with a lot more features.
The app has complete guides for more than 200 major cities, and each of those has six main features: Reservations, Things to Do, Saved Places, Day Plans, Food & Drink and Getting Around. There are guides for most other cities as well, but you won’t get Day Plans and Getting Around options for those smaller locations.
There is no fine print here. As long as you don’t consider the fact that Google now has a new way of collecting your data as a price to pay, there is no monetary charge for using the app. This is significant if you compare it to similar travel apps like TripIt, which costs $49 per year for its premium service.
