Not all who wander are lost, but it's good to know there are travel apps to help you find your way if needed. Tripadvisor is one such app: it can help you on the go, and also if you’re planning a trip in advance.

Tripadvisor is one of the most popular travel platforms, providing lots of useful information about hotels, tourist attractions, restaurants and more. The best part? There are more than a billion user reviews, photos, comments, forum posts and travel-related information available to help you plan and book your trip!

Join the world’s largest travel community

By getting the app and becoming a member, you’ll be welcome to an extensive community of fellow travelers. Enjoying everything Tripadvisor has to offer is completely free!

The app is available for Android phones and tablets and Apple iPhone and iPad devices. Of course, you can get it from Google Play Store and the App Store.

Becoming a member

Once you get the app, all you need to do is become a member by signing in and creating your Tripadvisor account. You can do it by either using your Google login credentials (“Continue with Google” button) or providing an email and choosing a password (“Continue with email” option).

Now you’re ready to go! You can start posting your own reviews and photos, participate in the forums asking and answering questions, and create folders to save your favorites to plan a trip.

As regards subscriptions, there used to be one: Tripadvisor Plus. It was an annual subscription but it’s no longer available. Now the whole Tripadvisor experience is available to everyone for free.

Exploring Tripadvisor’s mobile features

The moment you sign in, you land on the app’s main screen, which corresponds to the Explore section. At the bottom of the screen, there are icons for easy access to all the sections available.

  • Explore: this section gives you suggestions, organized under engaging headings like “Grab a board and hit the beach”. These get updated according to your browsing history, favorites, and preferences within the app. You can choose to explore those options, and also go your own way by tapping Hotels, Things to do, Restaurants or Forums and discovering nearby or popular destinations.
  •  Search: the search bar asks you “Where to?”, inviting you to type in your desired destination. Scrolling down, you can also see suggestions like “Top experiences on Tripadvisor”.
  • Plan: this is your starting point if you’re interested in planning your trip. There are two paths to getting this done. You can either “Create a trip” or “Build a trip with AI”.
    • Create a trip: you’re asked to name a “trip folder” to save your favorite hotels, restaurants and more, see them in a custom-made map, and get your travel companions to collaborate.
    • Build a trip with AI: by answering some questions, the AI advisor suggests a perfectly tailored itinerary. It’s pretty impressive!
  • Review: Tripadvisor is all about its users’ reviews, so you’re welcome to share your opinion on a place or travel experience or upload a photo. There are some guidelines if you don’t know how to start.
  • Account: the good old spot where you can set up your profile and preferences, check your bookings and messages and get support.

Conclusion

The Tripadvisor app provides an amazing, wanderlust-friendly experience for anyone interested in planning their next trip, getting inspiration or guiding others who’d like to embark on one. The billions of reviews available make it more attractive, as you can count on other travelers’ opinions before making a decision. To cap it all, the fact that all’s for free should make it your number one choice when picking a travel app.
