Google's personalized travel planner, Google Trips, helps prospective travelers effectively plan vacations and voyages on a mobile phone. The app, released on Monday, integrates your personal preferences, crowd-sourced reviews, and Google's map technology. Here's how you can use it on your iOS or Android mobile to get the best vacation you could have imagined.

In a report by The Verge, Google Trips is a breakthrough in travel planning applications around the world. The app is a quick and easy way of organizing everything from plane tickets to travel itinerary. The app rivals several paid subscription apps in terms of service and functionality.

The first thing you need to know about the Google Trips app is that it heavily relies on a Gmail account, so you'll have to create one if you don't have one already. The app is programmed to save your preferences and mark suggestions based on the information it gathers from your inbox.

The application features an easy-to-use destination search. All you have to do is mark your intended travel destinations, your travel dates, and the app will automatically create an itinerary specifically designed to suit your preferences. These trips are changeable, so users are free to add or remove activities as you see fit.

With more than 200 major cities marked and prepared to offer complete guides, the app is capable of making suggestions for accommodation reservations, important landmarks, transportation, activities, and culinary experiences. However, as stated by the New York Times, the app may not be adequately equipped for smaller destinations.

The Google Trips app provides useful information via a "Need to Know" feature. This feature provides information regarding ideal traffic routes, currency conversion, and local emergency contact numbers. This feature may also be used to find information regarding flights, hotel, restaurant, and rental car reservations you have made.

In addition to the ready-made itineraries, the app features a "Things to Do" list which creates unique itineraries depending on trip destinations and trip duration. This feature expands when connected to the internet, adjusting itineraries to accommodate operation hours and local weather reports.

The application is available for free via the Apple Store and the Google Play Store. It is worth noting that the app may be taken offline, however, some features may require internet connection and GPS location for full functionality.
