PlanMoreTrips is a free website for collaborative travel planning. Planning a trip is complicated especially if you are planning it with someone. You have to coordinate a lot of things and then research for flights, hotels, etc. which fit everyone’s schedule. Then you also need to save your research so you can refer to it later. There is no easy way to save information like flights, hotels, etc. Most of the times I end up copy pasting a lot of data in Excel file or Google sheets. Sometimes I have to even manually write the information because the data can’t be copied. But with PlanMoreTrips this process becomes a lot easier, let us see how.
PlanMoreTrips let’s you save flights and hotels in one place which can easily be shared with friends traveling with you. Friends can also add their comments on the itinerary.

Once you have locked in the dates, flights will be shown to you. When you click on a particular flight you will see a PlanMoreTrips icon right next to the price.
You can click this icon, choose the trip folder you want to save this under and add the flight details to your trip plan. You can add multiple flights as options, with different dates. You can also search for hotels or Airbnb and add details of the same to your trip planning folder as well.
