LESS TRACKING, MORE TRAVELLING Trail Wallet is free for the first 25 items, with an In App Purchase available to unlock unlimited amounts. **Featured in the App Store. Over 150,000 downloads!** **Also featured in Forbes, The Telegraph, the New York Times, Lonely Planet, the LA 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 freedom from 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.

  • Annoying prob

    By Angme37
    Updated: bought the 4.99 to add more than 25 items. Every time I open the app it asks me if I want to buy it which I already have and every time I have to go to settings and do restore purchases. Very annoying!
  • Love it, but...

    By 0rangeorchid
    I LOVE this app. I’ve had the paid version for years. But I’ve switched to android and now it’s useless. PLEASE make an Android app! I can pay for a 6-week trip for the price of a new iPhone!
  • Super great app

    By Black Panther Paul
    Been using this app for a year everyday and love it. If you need to tack your travel costs, this is the app for you.
  • Please fix

    By bigflatpanel
    For the last month the app has been crashing with 1st transaction that takes photo.
  • Great travel expense tracker

    By Love those trains!
    Awesome app. You can set up various “trips” and track expenses for each one. I put expenses in local currency and app converts to USD or any other base currency. If you enter expense in wrong trip, you can move them to correct trip. Can track expenses by credit, cash, debit or other. Highly versatile but easy to use.
  • Very simple

    By Izaacmp
    The app is very simple yet effective. It’s quick to use and the minimal feature set means budgeting becomes quick and simple rather than a complicated chore.
  • Great way to track spending!

    By julscando
    I used this app when I took my mom to Europe. We were in different countries and it was very easy to figure our budgeted amounts along with the ease to go between currencies. I continue to use it as a monthly budget, keeping track of expenses such as medical, food, gas... and see where I am in the budget at any given time. I did upgrade to the unlimited which also helped keep things recorded for tax purposes using g the category and the photo link(kept all receipts in photo form with the entry)
  • Need new feature

    By mansenie
    I love this app but I now realize I need to add a budget for each category. This for me would be perfect cause I’d know exactly when to stop in one category. When planning finances, i have time to think of everything i need to spend on but in the moment, it’s not the case. If there was a limit per category, it would make the app 5 star to me . I use it all the time!
  • Great For Travel

    By DrScience
    Awesome app! I use this to record expenses when I travel, and it is great. Easy to use, and I can export my expenses into CSV for excel. I dont bother with the trip budget feature, but others might like that. The developer is very responsive. I asked about the ability to tag puchaases as using a credit card, and it is now in the new update. Great! Still needed, GPS tagging of the purchase location. I would also like the ability to get rid of the cartoon characters...
  • Love the app but the currency conversion is not up to date

    By Stephmpat7
    The app is truly wonderful for so many reasons and it’s easy to use, my only complaint is that the currency is not updating with what it is in reality, even though it says that if you connect to the internet it would update, it doesn’t. I hope they fix this .
