The time for summer travel is upon us, but who has the time or energy to carve out a weekend for planning your next vacation?

With Evernote, you don’t have to because you can plan your travels in bits and pieces, by yourself, with other people, and whenever you have a free moment. Here’s how.

5 Ways to Plan a Better Trip with Evernote

  1. Plan when you can. Be sure to download Evernote to all of your devices and computers so you can capture information and inspiration whenever you have the time.
  2. Use your Evernote email address. Your inbox is hard to search. Find things faster in your Evernote account; forward travel recommendations, confirmations, and more from your email to Evernote. Once in Evernote, you can organize your trip using tags, Notebooks, and Notebook Stacks.
  3. Share your notebook. If planning a vacation with a partner, friends or family, make planning and sharing information easier by inviting individuals to view your notebook. Premiums users can also allow others to modify notes and notebooks.
  4. Clip away. Install the Evernote Web Clipper on your browser so you can clip articles, hotel information, restaurant menus, maps, bathing suits and more, to your Evernote account. Browse through your finds when you have the time, narrow your selections, or take action on them.
  5. Create your packing list. Start making a packing list well in advance. Use Reminders to make sure you’re on track to pick up sunscreen, scuba gear, and your updated passport well in advance of your trip.

    I planned a trip to Portugal entirely in Evernote recently. I put airline tickets, tours, subway maps, card passwords, copy of documents (passport, etc.), shopping list, pre-trip checklist, etc. in Evernote on a specific Notebook

    Before the trip I marked the notebook to be available offline on my tablet and on my smartphone.

    Certainly without Evernote would have been much more complicated to organize everything!

    We are currently on our 1st month of a 9month world trip… and yes, we used Evernote for the whole thing! Still using it daily on the move! We will certainly give out any of our tips we discover along the way!

    Using Evernote has made several trips so much easier to plan and travel. Everything is in one place and easy to find when you need it. Just got back from a trip to Kauai and used Evernote in all the ways mentioned. It was so helpful to have all my reservations and confirmations for air, hotel, and car in one notebook accessible on my phone and Kindle.

    My wife and I are planning a trip to Hawaii for our 20 yr anniversary. Pretty much everything is in Evernote. Our plane confirmations, hotel confirmations, notes of excursions, web clippings, car rental confirmation, packing lists, and lots of other info. It’s synced to all devices so I have our info everywhere. I use evernote for literally every project I have.

    We went on a cruise last summer which went wrong with airline missed connections. It was so easy to manage with Evernote. I was given a toll free number for Princess — into Evernote. They gave me an airline ticket number — into Evernote. I had all my airline tickets, Princess number, hotel reservations, even a copy of our passports in Evernote. No searching though papers in pant pockets which had been packed.

    I use two folders, one called Travel which has frequent flyer numbers. toll free numbers, passport details and things I need for any travel. The other folder is Trips which contains items specific to upcoming trips. Such items as hotel reservations, airline tickets, auto reservations, etc. That way I can clean it out after every trip. I would not travel again without Evernote.

    A dedicated Evernote Travel app would be awesome. What if I could do a web clipping of my itinerary and then it provide flight information, etc. Like when you forward and email to plans@tripit.com except I can just clip the itinerary as soon as I book, as well as all the other related info about what I’m going to do. Build it!

    I used Evernote in Budapest, Norway, Japan, Korea, Germany and Sweden and it’s just perfect.
    I like to create an interactive map and then sync it on my iPad. Here’s how I do it:
