Zoom from Continents to Streets

Knapsack's incredibly detailed world map let's you view your trip's destinations at any level of detail. Get an overview of your trip or zoom in to see all the parking lots near your hotel.


Create Detailed Itineraries

Plan the ultimate family vacation, your next business trip, or your dream getaway. Lay out your travel plans, destinations, activities, and even your packing lists. Fill your days with scheduled events and keep a list of all things you hope to do. When you return from your travels, add notes and photos to create a memory of your trip.

Plan Your Schedule

Whether you're scuba diving in Belize or hiking across Europe, you can lay out your plan for each day.

With the flexible itinerary planner you can build an itinerary with as much or as little detail as you need. Shuffle activities between days or even rearrange your entire schedule.

Create Todo Lists

As you plan your trip, use todo lists to keep track of all your unfinished business.

Create packing lists, shopping lists, or lists of all the things that you need to do before you leave. Check each item off as you complete it to track your progress. Never forget your toothbrush or camera again.


Smart Groups

Built-in smart groups automatically show your upcoming, recent, unscheduled, and top-rated trips. Your travel plans have never been so organized.

Create Custom Groups

Create your own groups to categorize your trips. Create a group called "Europe" and drag all your European vacations there. Or, use a group called "Business Trips" to organize those not-for-pleasure excursions.
