It's a simple 2 step operation to get an Itinerary going:
1) enter your Start and Destination above, then press the Show On Map button
2) a suggested route will be displayed that you can confirm by clicking a Let's Go button
Your personal Itinerary (the centrepiece of this app) will be presented showing Driving times and distances between major towns.
And if Google's route hasn't taken you to places you are interested in visiting, you can always include by clicking the +Add via button in this Route panel.
Destination, Attraction and Event Information
Click on a Drive row in the Itinerary to see a town's Destination Information (look for after the town's name in the pop-up).
Or scroll through up-to-date listings of Events or Attractions for the regions you'll be travelling through. See an Attraction/Event you like? Simply press the Include button to add it in to your Itinerary. And including your own activities is just as easy. In both cases a time adjustment will be made in the Itinerary.
Recognise your Overnight Stops and review Accommodation options
Once you've got everything in the order you like, it's easy to work out where overnight stops should occur (a Mark as Overnight Stop button is available via the Drive row click; repeat for additional nights in that town). It's then a single click to check out different accommodation options for the town with our partner WotIf.
Click on the Print View button to see your Itinerary in a great looking format, or nominate a start date to see your trip in the Calendar View.
Navigate around using the Menu that will appear in the top left hand corner or via the Return button located at the bottom of most of the panels. You can choose to easily share the Plan with friends. Have fun!
