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.

  • Love this app!

    Easy to use. Has become a habit now to track my expenses and helps me budget. I can see how much a particular trip away has cost me. Great for travel.
  • Awesome App!

    We have been traveling for over a year and it's been great for tracking expenses and budgeting. It's very easy to use, and has many helpful features. App also comes loaded with pie charts, exporting features and a few sparky comments when you exceed your budget. Lover every bit of it. Thank you Simon!
  • No hassle travel or daily expenses

    By BlueMonk1
    I needed something to track expenses for my six month adventure in South America. It had to be simple enough to enter all little things throughout the day. At the same time it had to have features to categorize expenses and good interface to visualize everything. I tried a few apps and found this app to be the winner. It’s super simple to add expenses and gives me all that I need to track my budget. I got used to the app so much, I kept using it for my daily expenses after my travel. I have a nice little breakdown of all expenses at the end of the year. The only feature I wish the app had was the ability to copy an old expense item and add it to a new date. Would make the recurring monthly expense tracking so much faster. Thanks guys!
  • New favorite App!

    I'm pretty good at budgeting during trips... it's day to day life that I falter. I wanted an app to track my daily extravagances on coffee shops and happy hours and pizza deliveries when I should be cooking good old fashioned meals at home. All the expense trackers I searched were way too inclusive and had such boring interfaces. THIS ONE, however, was instantly fun and happy and didn't try to monitor every household expenditure. It was super easy to figure out, as well as to modify categories to suit exactly what I was looking for. I created a "Trip" titled "Life - October", input start and end dates, adjusted my category headings, and diligently recorded every time I ate out or got groceries. When I used up the first 25 free entries, I gladly paid for the unlimited upgrade. And at the end of the month, I now have a lovely pie chart that tells me that I spend as much on happy hours w/friends as I do on monthly groceries. I think I'll have to work on that... "Life - November" is currently in progress, and I have a feeling this pie chart will look more balanced when it's done. Also, I can't wait to use it on my next real trip!!!
  • Easy to use, easy to learn.

    I learned how to use this app in a couple of minutes, then was on my way to keeping track of money being spent on my vacation. Every time I pay for something I easily log it into my phone, in the categories I want, the moment it is spent. No more keeping receipts to log in later, forgetting what I spent my money on. I have a moment by moment record of how my vacation spending is going which gives me a chance to stay in budget. Thanks for developing a perfect budgeting app.
  • What we've been waiting for

    This app is just what travelers needed! It's so easy to use, love the simple interface and the display of your data (and being able to export and backup). Great way to keep track of your finances when traveling (with categorization and comparison to budget)! It's got a few settings you can adjust, which is nice (categories, currencies, etc.). What would take this app to the next level is allowing users to share a trip, since some people share/split costs and being able to indicate that on certain expenses would be great. Great work on the development of this app! Thank you.
  • Best app ever

    By Windsongseller
    We are in the middle of a one year round the world trip and this app is invaluable. We will end up with seven or eight different currencies and everything is right in front of us. I only wish the app would work on android as I have to log everything into my iPad when we get home for the day. We have to save receipts. Oh, and the cartoons are really a distraction. LOVE THIS APP!
  • Awesome app

    By Batmansvictim
    Using it for a year long trip and it really helps us keep on budget. Very easy to use and the little character says funny things when you overspend. So glad we found this app and plan to use it indefinitely to stay on budget even after we stop traveling. You can add all different currencies and track every cent you spend. I highly recommend.
