Adding Places to Trips

Places can be added to your trip in a few ways. Before we dive into the options below, first you'll want to pull your trip up on the map.

  • On the desktop, select your profile icon in the upper right of Roadtrippers to go to your profile page and click the trip you want to work on. This will load the trip on our map and show the "trip planner".
  • In our mobile app, go to the Profile section from the bottom menu, tap the trip you want to work on, and click the green Load Trip On Map button at the bottom of the screen.

From Categories on the Map

If you need a reminder of how to select categories, check out this article: Discover Places

Website iOS App Android App

After selecting a category on the map with your trip opened, places will appear on the map as pins or small circles. Click on a place on the map and you'll see a small infobox with an Add to Trip button.


  Distance From Route

Opening categories on a route will automatically set a default radius of 30 miles on the desktop site and 5 miles in the mobile app. This limits where places load when exploring categories while planning a trip. You can use map controls to indicate how far off your route you are willing to go to visit places.

From Place Pages

If you need a refresher of the info available on Place Pages, check out this article: Place Pages Don't forget, you can zoom in/out and move the map around to see more places on different areas of your trip!

Website iOS App Android App

You can click a place, either from the list on the left or from the infobox that displays after an initial click on the map, to go to the Place Page. From there, you can learn more about the place and click the Add to Trip button to add it to your trip.


Add a Place Manually

If you can't find a place in our categories or by searching for the name of the place, you can enter it in manually by simply typing the address. Note that this method will only add places to your trip, not to our categories or list of places on Roadtrippers.

Website iOS App Android App

In the trip planner, click the + Add Waypoint button at the top of the list of stops to open the "Add a place" search field. As you type in the name or address of the place you'd like to visit, a drop-down list will appear suggesting places based on what you're typing.
