Choosing your next travel destination

Choosing your next travel destination can be hard. Enjoy your next vacation with this tips from Tripsy.

You are on vacation and don't know what is the best destination to travel. Don't worry, it is a common situation, with many amazing places around the world choosing the best one is not so easy. Check out the following tips and enjoy your next destination:

1. What's your budget?

Based on your budget, you can choose a far or close destination, if you are going to stay in a simple or luxury hotel, the duration of the trip, etc.

You also should consider currency exchange rates, check how much money are you going to spend with attractions, etc.

2. How much time can you spend traveling?

If you have just a few days, traveling to a distant place can be fruitless. The hours you're going to be flying, the adaptation to the time zone change, etc. can make your trip tiresome.

Sometimes, we only think about traveling to other countries, we don't realize the abundance of nice destinations that are around us.

3. Who are you going to travel with?

Are you going to travel solo or with friends? Is it a romantic trip or a family one? 

All these questions can help you decide what's the best option. 

If you are traveling with children or elderly, an adventurous trip with hiking and trekking it's not a good idea. Everyone should be happy with the travel destination when traveling in a group, so get all the travelers involved in the decision-making process, so the trip can be great from the beginning to the end.

4. What do you like?

Do you prefer hot or cold weather? Urban or natural places? Modern or historic cities? Practicing sports or going to museums?

Going to Europe during winter is not going to be nice if you can't stand cold temperatures. The same way, a cultural trip is not a smart choice if you prefer to swim or go hiking in the woods. Your destination must be a place where you will feel good.

Follow your preferences is the key to have an awesome trip.

5. Special events

Keep in mind that special dates such as Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, New Year's Eve in New York, etc. can make the prices of flights and accommodation increase. Not to mention that crowds can be annoying and make you waste time in lines.

Choosing another date or destination is a good idea.

6. Follow the deals

A place that you've never thought traveling to can be your next destination. Be open-minded, and a cheap flight can decide where you are going on your vacation.

7. Find inspiration for your trip

Take a look at Pinterest, Instagram, travel blogs, magazines, and also talk to your friends and family. 

A stunning photo or a conversation with someone can give you different ideas of destinations.

After you have chosen your destination, it's time to plan your trip using Tripsy App. Organize all your trips in only one place, share it with friends and family, receive flight alerts, also access exclusive itineraries among other amazing features.

Well, Tripsy is now your answer!

🤸‍♂️ New category of activity: Fitness

Are you into exercising during your trip to keep up the good habits? That’s great! Now Tripsy has a category specific just for that purpose.

Ever since the first version of the app, Tripsy has offered premium itineraries created entirely by our team, and we always try to add new itineraries on every major update. On this release, we are introducing a new trip itinerary to Vancouver (4 days), we hope you like it!

🤓 Reduced the app size from 8MB to just 3MB

That’s right! The app now has the size smaller than a photo in high resolution. We were able to do that after updating the source-code to Swift 5, and since we don’t use big frameworks to track your usage and get your data, the app is super small right now!

We hope you enjoy this update! ❤️

If you have any feedback, you can contact us on feedback@tripsy.app, we would love to hear from you!


If you enjoy it, it would mean the world to us if you could share the news on Twitter. And oh, a review in the App Store helps a lot, too! If you want to write about us, you can find our PressKit here.

Introducing Tripsy

We’re incredibly excited to launch Tripsy, a new way to organize your travels on your iPhone and iPad.

Tripsy came from a need of us having all travel information in one place: flights, hotels, calendar, museums, concert tickets, etc. The usual way to travel around is to carry all the information inside many different applications: emails, airline apps, hotels apps, wallet, files, notes and printing some important tickets. We think we can do better.

We want to offer you a way to save all your trip itinerary with as many details as you want to add to any activity, and on top of that, offer you easy ways to navigate in your travel experiences, such as maps integrations, files and flight alerts. Oh, and we also want you to be able to share this information with others easily, in the next versions of Tripsy you can expect to have this feature.

🔒 Privacy — your data is yours!

Sending the data to our cloud is up to you. You can choose if you want to sync all the data to have a backup and sync between different devices, or use only an offline copy on your device (backed up with your iCloud backup).

If you choose to use our cloud, all the information you input is yours. We’re not selling any of this data to anyone or want to use it to sell any product in the future. We don’t make money with your info, and we’ll never do that. But syncing your activities with us will give you some advantages in the future that you may want: we’ll be able to alert you on flight changes, automatically include bookings from emails and documents that you may want to include in your account, view the same information of your trip itinerary in multiple devices and in the future you will be able to have other collaborators in your trip itinerary as well.

Privacy is something that we deeply care about; it’s one of our core values. You can check our Privacy Policy in this link: tripsy.app/policy.

🌟 Premium: take more advantage of Tripsy

In order to have a sustainable business, Tripsy offers a Premium plan to everyone that travels or anyone that wants to support us in order to maintain the application running and getting updated.

For that, Premium users can create unlimited trips (Free users can only create one), have access to exclusive features in the future, unlimited access to all of our travel plans (explained below), and also sync your data between devices.

📱 Travel plans from humans — From us to you

For Premium users we offer travels plans that our team created. They are completely created by us, from our own experiences and we believe you’re going to love it. As a Premium user, you can copy one of our trip plans and edit as you prefer, making the best use of it! We currently offer trip plans to Rome (5 days), Santiago (5 days), New York (4 days), Paris (4 days), Amsterdam (3 days) and more to come.
