Designed to be fast, it takes the headache out of expense tracking so you can focus on the fun. "Trail Wallet…is the best travel-centric expense tracking app I’ve used." The Professional Hobo "Trail Wallet is super easy to use, fast, and has a fun and beautiful interface." Too Many Adapters BUILT BY TRAVELLERS We are Simon Fairbairn and Erin McNeaney of Never Ending Voyage, a couple who've been travelling full time since March 2010. Managing our finances is what has enabled us to have so many wonderful experiences but, after 3 years on the road, we needed something better than scribbled notes, loose receipts, and complicated spreadsheets to track our expenses. So we built Trail Wallet. Nobody wants to worry about money while travelling, but we all do. Tracking your finances is a simple way to get some freedom from this financial anxiety. Instead of just hoping you’ve got enough money, know. QUICK AND SIMPLE Road tested by tens of thousands of travellers, the app is simple, clear and easy to use. Organise your expenses by trip or by month, set yourself a daily budget, then easily add expenses as you go. When you get a bill or receipt, launch the app, add the amount using the Quick Add screen and you’re done. Forget about it. Get on with your day. No more collecting receipts in bags or pockets. No more sitting with a calculator trying to work out how you’re doing. No more trying to remember how much that tuk-tuk cost. At the end of the day or week or month or trip, you can see how you’re doing. A little over budget? No problem—our app will tell you what’s eating up your cash. Under budget? Good job—send a little reassurance to your friends and family using your favourite social media platform.

  • Great App for Quick Easy Trip Expenses.

    I previously used trip boss to track my expenses but after updating my phone I had problems with it. I loved that app and all its features in it but when forced to look elsewhere, I am so glad I found this app. It’s so much easier to set up, has quick entries that keep your expenses in categories, and the charts are a good visual too. I would have given it 5 stars but I don’t care for the characters and wish you could tune them off. I even bought the extra ones so I had more options but I don’t care for them either. This really isn’t that big of a deal, I just wish I could turn them off or have better ones to choose from or even just theme colors I could personalize. Other than that this app works great and I will be using it with every trip I take.
  • Very limited

    By Rbpamom
    The app is very easy to use but VERY basic. I will be driving during my trip and want to track gas costs and car mileage, which is not possible with this app. Not what I was looking for. It also crashed when I tried to enter an end date for my trip.
  • Easy & Convenient

    By LuLu1987pa
    I first used this app to track a long weekend out of town. I wanted to see if it really was as easy as everyone claimed and I found that it truly was easy to use. I then used it on my trip overseas. This was awesome because I had limited funds and I was able to track everything I spent and stay under budget. Not only that, I could select the local currency, enter it, and with one touch of the screen I could see how much it was in US dollars! Love this app so much that I have recommended it to my kids to use to track their monthly expenditures.
  • Performs as advertised - No more no less!

    Alas! Where have you been hiding?! Found this app accidentally in the middle of a trip that required the use of 3 different currencies. What a snap it was to record, convert and total expenses from day to day. I abandoned an app that had many accounting functions that just aren't needed in a travel expense tracking app though the developers were promoting it for travelers. Thanks for building this practical app.

    I have been using this app for more than a year. We have been to Europe, Newfoundland, and then 8 months traveling around the US. It has been an amazing companion to traveling and has helped keep us on budget for our “retirement on a budget “!
  • Only 25 items :(

    5 bucks is so expensive
  • Needs rollover option

    By googleplex3000
    Nice way to keep track but needs a rollover option if you’re under budget that increases your daily budget if under.
  • The BEST

    By justracheldm
    The best budget app I have ever come across, makes everything so simple on both a small and large scale. I use it for daily expenses even when I'm not traveling!
  • Lifesaver! Wish you could share w/ travel partners

    By ShelbAnn__
    Amazing app, the rest of the reviews here do an eloquent job explaining the features. It truly is the best budgeting app I've ever downloaded. Ever. The only drawback is that I wish you could share "trips" with other people. For example, my fiancé and I share a budget, but I feel like the fun police when I have to ask him to enter his half of the expenses. Thanks for creating an amazing app that makes life so much easier!
  • Love this app!

    Easy to use. Has become a habit now to track my expenses and helps me budget. I can see how much a particular trip away has cost me. Great for travel.
