If the work involved in planning a vacation makes you feel like you deserve (another) vacation, you’re not alone, and you may just be in luck. Thanks to a new travel browser app from MobyTrip, setting yourself up for relaxation just got a whole lot more … relaxing.

Branding itself as a “trip planner and optimizer app that saves you valuable time and makes planning your next holiday as enjoyable as the trip itself,” the brand new offering from MobyTrip centralizes all your vacation logistics in one handy app.

To get started, simply pick a destination city and select suggested activities, hotels, and restaurants from MobyTrip’s map, or get inspired by others’ trips and itineraries. After all, there’s no use in reinventing the wheel when you’re trying to just have fun, right? These options, MobyTrip claims, will reduce the amount of time you have to spend figuring out where you want to go and what you want to do once you get there.

And to help make the picking process even easier, MobyTrip lists city attractions with their Wikipedia descriptions, TripAdvisor reviews, Instagram photos, and more. And because you can also book flights and compare hotel prices, this really is an all-in-one solution. But perhaps most useful of all is MobyTrip’s collaborative travel feature. You and your friends can edit an itinerary simultaneously and in real-time, so you don’t have to complain about being the only one doing the heavy lifting anymore.

“Travel planning can be a painful experience — it’s easy to find a review or a flight, but to tie it all together travelers need to spend countless hours figuring out what to do and the logistics of each step,” says MobyTrip co-founder Misha Plotkine. “Many services push users to book right away, but they don’t help them create a memorable experience. Our application takes a completely different approach by helping users create their dream vacations and book activities through trusted market leaders, all in one spot.”

And if you really want a laissez faire experience, you can plan your trip by way of MobyTrip’s Facebook or Slack bots. Just answer a few simple questions, and receive a pre-filled itinerary. The more answers you provide, the more personalized your trip becomes.

“Users are made to switch back and forth between hotel search engines, travel research websites, transit or map apps, and recommendations platforms before making a decision,” MobyTrip co-founder Anatoli Plotkine said in a statement today. “By using MobyTrip’s wide range of services and trip planning optimization, our travelers gain a much richer experience and can organize their entire trip in a fraction of the time using the sources they already know and trust.”

Take a moment and think about how often you shop at your local Walmart. Is it weekly? Daily? If either of those is the case, it might be time to upgrade your shopping experience. The Walmart Plus free trial is your chance to check out what the retail giant has to offer. Walmart Plus is basically Amazon Prime for Walmart. You get free shipping on most orders, early access to deals and new product drops (like PS5 restocks), the best grocery delivery, and more. If Walmart is your go-to option for the best smart home devices or the best tech products in general, you should get a membership. If you want to test out the service, you can sign up for a free trial. We have all the information you need right here.
Is there a Walmart Plus free trial?
There is a Walmart Plus free trial available, and it’s one of the best free trials we’ve seen in terms of how many great features and conveniences you’re able to access. This is really a reflection of how great the Walmart Plus service is, as the Walmart Plus free trial is essentially a 30-day experience of what it would be like to be a paid Walmart Plus subscriber. A Walmart Plus membership can help you save over $1,300 per year, so taking advantage of the 30-day free trial is a great way to get in there and see what those savings will look like. And if grocery delivery is what you're really after, an alternative you might consider is the Instacart free trial -- they have more than one program to try!

As part of a Walmart Plus free trial, you’ll get free shipping with no minimum order, so even small orders will qualify for free shipping. You’ll get fresh groceries and more with no delivery fees, and all at the same low in-store prices Walmart shoppers are used to. Walmart Plus members, and Walmart Plus free trial members, get exclusive access to special promotions and events, as well as a savings of up to 10 cents per gallon on fuel. A new addition to the perks of being a Walmart Plus member is free access to Paramount Plus, a top-notch streaming service with more than 40,000 TV episodes and movies. All of this is accessible for 30 days through a Walmart Plus free trial, and once those 30 days are up, Walmart Plus is just $8.17 per month or $98 annually.
