“The best (practical) way to plan a trip!” You read the caption for her video.

But instead of instantly booking a hotel or Airbnb, it will generate a Google Map.

If you search Google My Maps and then click My Google Maps, there will be a “Create New Map” button.

Next, you pin the places you want to see and the activities you want to do on the map of the city you are visiting.

You can categorize your activities into entertainment, food, sightseeing, and more.

Jessica also recommends pinning transportation options on the map to help you decide if you’d like to be near a train station or airport.

Next, she recommends doing a quick Google search for the most recommended places to stay.

Use the map you created to compare those higher-ranked areas with your pinned activities.

Based on that, you should be able to book a hotel or Airbnb in the location that is best for you.

Jessica also claims that the map should be able to help you plan your days during your trip.

You can use Pins to make built-in plans in one area of ​​your destination to make more efficient use of your time.

She said you can also use the map to see what you’re close to when you’re wandering off your itinerary or having a day without any specific plans.

In theory, by planning your trip this way, you might be able to cut transportation costs and find affordable hotels central where you’ll spend most of your time.
