Popularity has been steadily growing in the use of AI for creating travel itineraries. With advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning, travel planning has become more efficient, personalized, and convenient for travellers. AI algorithms can process vast amounts of data quickly, allowing them to analyze and extract relevant information from various sources. They can take into account individual preferences and interests to create personalised travel plans. While AI-powered travel itinerary planners offer significant benefits, human expertise and input is still valuable. Here are a few AI-travel companions that can assist you during your perfect trip:
1. Roam Around
Roamaround.io is a ChatGPT travel planner by former Googler Shie Gabbai. Upon request, it offers amusing daily itineraries, sites for tours, photographs, and other details. The website uses ChatGPT to quickly query and come up with a travel plan. You can type out any destination, and Roam Around will show good results instantly.
2. Google Bard
This AI travel companion by Google offers action-packed itineraries with photos and links as well.

ChatGPT can assist you with various aspects of travel. It can provide you with details about popular travel destinations, including attractions, landmarks, cultural information, local customs, and recommendations for activities or places to visit. It can also help you plan your trip by providing suggestions for itineraries, recommending the best times to visit certain locations, and offering insights into transportation options. Even, it can take you around popular local dishes, provide information about dietary restrictions or food preferences, and recommend restaurants or cafes based on your location.
Remember that while AI companions can be incredibly helpful during your trip, they cannot surpass the human planning of your trip. Use them as tools to enhance your experience, but don’t let them distract you from fully immersing yourself in the travel experience.
So, have you used any of these AI travel companions for your trip?
