Over 150,000 downloads!** **Also featured in the New York Times, Lonely Planet, the Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, Qantas Magazine, SmarterTravel, Y Travel, The Points Guy, and Too Many Adapters.** Trail Wallet is an easy travel expense tracker. 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

    By julscando
    I used this when I travelled Europe with my mother in 2016. It was great because it kept me in my daily budget even though currencies changed and was easy to switch back and forth. I use it now as a budgeting tool.
  • 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.
  • Gets it done, not over-complicated

    Easy utility. Great tracker that doesn’t try to be a comprehensive financial manager.

    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 “!

    Very nice app - well organized, easy to use. Love the export to CSV feature! This app really works nicely for working with a budget on the road.
  • Ultimate expense tracker

    By Rr6013 in SFO
    Trail Wallet is more than vacation $ tracker. It tracks everything. Projects, jobs, trips and anything you can name with a start/end date. Neatly TrailWallet shows monthly spend on summary.
  • 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.
  • Terrific app!!!

    By omar2332
    I’m using Trail Wallet for year round travel, and it’s fantastic. My only request would be that you could share a trip with someone else and make the budget collaborative. But aside from that, it has everything you need to stay on task.
