Review – Pro Tavel Planner App

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

When embarking on a trip, you don’t just buy a ticket out of whim, pack your luggage and head to the airport or hit the road.  There is more than meets the eye when planning a trip.

Trips are hectic as they are fun. There are always the planning, the budgeting, the choosing of destination, the selection of accommodations, the planning or the itinerary, the maps, the routes to take, the souvenirs to buy, and all the managing of that one single trip can be very stressful. And a trip is not worth having when you are worrying!

Thank goodness for apps to help us with that! The ever handy Pro Travel Planner helps speed things up. With this app, you can have all those worries disappear in a jiffy, since its an all-in-one package.


Manage your travel buddies’ list
You can track their RSVP, real-time statuses and their contribution in the whole trip. You can also text, call them easily in a single touch.

Plan your all your trip in one place
Manage your lodging, transportation details, places to visit and where to eat. This feature also allows you to automate everything so it makes planning easy as it can trigger auto-alerts of pending tasks.

Integrated with IOS map
It has updated maps that you can use you when you travel. You can search for places of interests and has 3 types of view: Standard, Hybrid and Satellite views.

Ability to control your budget
This is a great app to keep your budget on track. You don’t get to overspend as it provides a real-time status of the expenditures.

Manage your packing list
It is loaded with an intensive packing list so you and your travel buddies do not miss anything.

You can collaborate, sync and delegate tasks
Don’t want to plan the whole trip alone? The collaboration, sync and delegation features allow you to assign tasks to your travel buddies and be updated with their contribution too.

All these features are made more powerful because you can customize them and the trip data of your planned trip can also be exported to Google spreadsheet or in PDF format.

This app is only for iPhone and iPad as it runs in IOS.

My recommendation:

I am from a family of travelers and sometimes, it can be overwhelming to plan a trip for all of us. Sometimes, my in-laws join us too and it can be daunting, to say the least. I have to make sure that all I have planned for and painstakingly coordinated for several months will not fall into cracks. An app like this Pro Travel Planner is the best app a traveler like myself can have and use.

If you travel a lot and always on the go, this is a great app to use.

It can be downloaded from the iTunes app store for $4.99.

This app is brought to you by Zysco.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
