This week, Google announced a new app made to reduce the work of planning a vacation.

Citing a GoodThink study that showed 74% of travelers feel the most stressful aspect of travel is figuring out the details, Google has invented Google Trips .

According to the company, Google Trips is a “personalized tour guide in your pocket” that contains categories of information including day plans, reservations, things to do, food & drink, and more.


The app allows users to keep track of all flight, hotel, car and restaurant reservations by automatically gathering all travel reservations from Gmail, as well as helping users find the attractions they want to see.

Google Trips does this by showing users a variety of day plans featuring the most popular daily itineraries for the top 200 cities in the world, and suggesting the most popular sights, attractions based on historic visits by other travelers.

For those who already have an idea of what they'd like to see, Google Trips can also help users build their day around these sites, for a more personalized touch.

The entire app is available offline, and users can tap the “Download” button under each trip to save the information to their phone for future review.
