The 10 Best AI travel planner tools to use in 2024

This summer, travel smart with AI tools: from planning to booking, they are a great help to both independent traveller and travel agents

 

Travelers booking a vacation in Paris, a business trip to London or a family reunion in Rome will increasingly use a new tool for planning: AI-powered travel plan tools.

As this innovation begins to change how people plan, book and navigate their trips, the travel industry could experience a significant generative AI-fueled expansion. Some online travel agencies are already using AI to improve efficiencies, manage customer reviews, personalize trip planning and offer voice-assisted booking.

From the traveller side, the most frustrating part of travel is planning a trip. Spending hours deciding places to visit, things to do, and booking flights and hotels can be tedious and frustrating— only if you’re doing it manually.  What if someone can do all that for you within minutes?  That’s where AI travel planners come into the picture. These nifty tools take your preferences and constraints and create customized itineraries quickly. 

In this post, we’ve resumed a list of the best AI travel planners (so far, at least). Enjoy your travel minus the planning hassle with an AI travel planner of your choice! 

What Should You Look for in AI Travel Planner Tools

When selecting an AI travel planning tool, look for the following features:

  • Level of customization: assess what questions the AI asks and how many criteria it provides to generate an itinerary. The more customization a tool offers, the better it is for you
  • Ease of access: check the accessibility of each AI travel planner. Is it only available as a mobile app, or can it be accessed via a desktop browser as well? See if there’s an option to download and save itineraries for easy offline access
  • Collaborative features: some AI travel planners allow you to collaborate with your travel partners to create custom itineraries. Prefer those over the ones that don’t allow collaboration
  • Personal recommendations: some AI travel planners consider your input and past behavior to provide personalized tips and recommendations. Such tools are preferable
  • Add-on trip planning features: look for unique features, such as a map view or flight finder, which help you with other aspects of travel planning
  • Pricing: while most AI travel planners are free, some require a subscription to access advanced features. Check whether the price is worth it or if you can find what you’re looking for free
