Whether you're thinking about your Summer 2017 travel plans or another trip, you know that planning a vacation is both stressful and exciting. You're pumped about going somewhere new, but the thought of making sure you see everything you want and wisely follow recommendations from friends and family is overwhelming. But with Google's newest app, Google Trips, planning any travel should get infinitely easier.

Google Trips, available for free on both Android and iOS, is an app that will plan and store your entire trip. Pulling information from your email, it will keep your reservations handy, let you know of the top activities to do, recommend specific dishes and restaurants to eat at, detail how and what to use to get around with public transportation, and a lot more — and that's just information you get based on where you're going.

If you want to get even more specific and figure out every detail, Google Trips will provide a ready-made itinerary (note: this only applies to the "top 200 cities of the world"). You can pick from a full day, morning, or afternoon schedule, as well as choose the day of the week (helpful in case an attraction is closed on certain days). Want to start your day somewhere specific? You can pin that point and the app will suggest a new array of activities to do based on that information. You can also save other places you're interested in seeing.

Combine this app with Google Destinations, the company's research and booking experience that provides itineraries, flight prices, and more, and every vacation should no longer be stressful. See screenshots of the app ahead, but warning: you might never want to plan another trip again without it.
