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
After selecting categories on the map with your trip opened, places 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.
After selecting categories on the map with your trip opened, open the list view by tapping the 3 dots with lines icon in the upper left. Once you have the list view open, simply tap the green car icon to add a place to your trip.
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!
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.
If you have the list view of places open, you can tap on a place to go to the Place Page.
If you're looking at the map, you can scroll through the places listed at the bottom or tap a place on the map to see it at the bottom of the screen. From there, simply tap to go to the Place page.
Add a Place Manually
If you can't find a place in our categories, you can enter it in manually by simply typing the address or searching for the name of the place. Note that this method will only add places to your trip, not to our categories or list of places on Roadtrippers.
In the trip planner, click the + icon 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.
The mobile trip planner is what you first see after selecting a trip from your profile. Simply tap the + icon in the bottom right to open the "Add a place" search field.
