1. Create a travel itinerary using Chat GPT
If you haven’t heard about Chat GPT by now, you must be living under a rock. It is the AI chatbot that has taken the world by storm offering up text-based answers to any questions or prompts you give it. From being able to write emails and do your homework to solving complex puzzles and writing pieces of basic code. It is truly remarkable.
On top of this, Chat GPT is completely free to use and requires a user to create a profile and they can sign in and use the free AI chatbot as much as they please.
This provides a great opportunity for budding travel addicts who are tired of spending hours researching and writing out a full itinerary. With Chat GPT you can do it with a couple clicks and create a travel itinerary that is custom-built to all your preferences and requirements. Furthermore, it is completely free and will take you less than five minutes in total!
Step 1 - Sign up to Chat GPT
Sign up to Open AI and create an account to log in to the AI chatbot.
Step 2 - Prompt Template
Once you have created your account you will be able to access the full features of the AI chatbot. When it comes to writing a prompt to get the best travel itinerary results, ensure that you are specific. The more detail you provide to the Chat GPT, the more information it will have to create the best travel plan. If you provide it with very little, it will give you back something with a similar effect. With Chat GPT, what you put into it, is what you will get out of it.
When it comes to writing the best travel itinerary prompt, we have come up with a basic template. However, it is important to remember that you should customise it to your own preferences.
Simply copy and paste the following into Chat GPT and await the results:
“I’m travelling to [destination, country] for [number of nights] [number of days] in [month]. Please create me a travel itinerary that is structured with a breakfast, lunch and dinner plus activities in both the morning and daytime for me and my [friend/partner/family]. Please provide sights and activities that are most optimal and near each other for each day. Also recommend the best places to eat (make sure most restaurants are £ or ££ with one £££ restaurant for a nice meal), opportunities to relax, opportunities to take in natural scenery and experience the culture and include night time activities too. Also, provide recommendations for the best hotel that are between [£] – [£] altogether. Furthermore, our budget is [£] for our [number of days] day stay excluding aeroplane tickets.“
Step 3 - A Full Travel Itinerary
After you press submit, Chat GPT will create a fully comprehensive travel itinerary for your trip. As we suggested in the prompt it will provide you with options for breakfast, lunch and dinner plus some morning, afternoon and evening activities. Furthermore, it will recommend you a hotel within the given price range as well as an average cost for the entire trip.
With Chat GPT you can also ask it different questions after you have received your itinerary so if you think there is something missing or want to adjust a certain thing on the trip itinerary you can do so with ease. The power is in your hands.
Please note that Chat GPT is not connected to the internet and runs off of a 2021 data set meaning that certain things recommended within the itinerary may have closed down or the prices may not reflect the current climate.
View our example of the itinerary Chat GPT created for our 7-day Rome trip, the results are pretty incredible:
2. Write a custom trip plan using Vacay Chatbot
Vacay Chatbot is an AI assistant that is designed to produce a custom trip itinerary giving you recommendations on places to visit as well as the choice of the best hotels, restaurants and attractions in a specific holiday location.
It is a travel-focused AI chat agent that specializes in giving users options on the best travel-related queries. It uses technology that integrates Chat GPTs AI chatbot however it is designed to be heavily travel influenced and only respond to travel queries.
It is the perfect tool if you are looking for a more in-depth custom travel itinerary that has a little bit more local knowledge than Chat GPT can provide with recommendations on hotels, restaurants and attractions.
Step 1 - Visit the Vacay Chat Bot website
Firstly you need to visit the Vacay chatbot website and from here visit the AI tools category and select the itinerary generator subcategory.
Step 2 - Enter a Prompt
From here you can enter a prompt to start the itinerary generation service. Vacay also offers the option for users to select a pre-determined prompt which you can then adjust to your own preferences and needs. These prompts are found below the chatbot feature on the page which we recommend you use and adjust to your own needs for the best results with this AI travel chatbot.
Step 3 - Copy and Paste your Full Itinerary
Finally, once you have submitted your prompt, you will be presented with the answer for the AI chatbot and a full travel itinerary with costs and recommendations included. Sometimes the response from Vacay can be poor or inaccurate, if this is the case, we found that if you resend the prompt and it should amend any issues and come back with an accurate result.
The downside to Vacay chatbot is there is no way to save the answers that are displayed within the AI tool although you can copy and paste the responses into a document or notepad on your desktop.
3. Use Roam Around as the best Chat GPT prompt to create travel itineraries
Roam Around is a travel planning tool that will create a detailed travel itinerary similar to what Chat GPT can do. All you have to do is simply insert your destination city, the country you are visiting and how long you are staying for and within less than a minute you will be given a detailed itinerary and travel plan.
This travel planner is powered by Chat GPT and the technology is based on enhanced prompts that can be used to create a detailed itinerary with personalized recommendations in only a few simple inputs from the user, helping you save even more time than usual.
For an easier way than using a template with Chat GPT, you can use this tool and craft your itinerary in a few simple details.
Step 1 - Visit Roam.io
Visit roam.io and sign up using a Google account.
Step 2 - Enter Your Location
Simply enter the city and country you are visiting and press enter. Within a few seconds a detailed itinerary with morning, afternoon and evening activities for a 7-day itinerary. It will then leave you with a text box to add additional prompts. We tried recommendations such as “add times”, “give a breakdown of prices” and “write a 14-day itinerary”. The results we found were superb with a credible and fairly quick response.
One thing was clear you could tell the Chat GPT influence after a few prompts however as a more user-friendly version of Chat GPT, Roam.io is a great choice for those who may struggle with technology and would prefer a user-friendly version. Plus it is free to use.
Some downsides include the app not remembering your previous prompts so it would not replicate a full itinerary leaving you to have to pick up the pieces. Furthermore, the data seems to be limited to basic Chat GPT-type responses and recommendations with the same 2021 dataset that Chat GPT is based on. In addition to this, the responses are full of Viator.com links which can be helpful as well as unhelpful too.
