There’s nothing better than taking a vacation, though the anticipation leading up to one is a close second. Dreaming and planning out the details of your trip is exciting, but can feel overwhelming at times. Where should you stay? What should you eat? What attractions can you absolutely not miss? A great way to make vacation planning fun is to use Trip Canvas, AAA’s free travel planning tool. Trip Canvas lets you research, plan and book vacations all in one place. Plus, you get access to AAA’s travel expertise, savings and discounts.
How to Use Trip Canvas
Where do you want to go? Trip Canvas can help you figure that out. When you open the site, you’re greeted with the top trending destinations, tours, hotels, experiences and more. You can browse around and see what’s hot, or you can type in your desired destination in the search bar. I’ve decided to go to Japan.
When I search for “Japan,” Trip Canvas shows me a map of the country, as well as areas of interest and icons to show how many different experiences are offered here.
I can see information like how many cruises stop here, how many vacation and tour packages include Japan, how many hotels I can book through the site and how many things there are to do.
I choose a destination that I want to visit – Tokyo – and I skip the prompt that asks me when I’ll be going, because I’m not sure yet. Trip Canvas is flexible for any stage of planning, from the blue-sky daydream to the brass tacks decision-making. Next, I can choose from a series of inspiration prompts to tailor the results to me, personally.
Sounds good! I’m going to go with Adventure, Nature, Foodie and History, Art & Culture. Now, I can view all of the different experiences, tours, restaurants and hotels to inspire my trip. I can even open a map to see how close all of my different options are.
By adding a heart to one of my options, I’ve added it to my trip. Soon, I have my very own vacation planned and ready to book! And if I have any questions, I can even share my trip with a AAA travel agent through the website so they can see what I’ve planned.
When I’m done planning my trip, I can save it to my AAA account or to my email, and I can share it with my friends to entice them to come with me.
