"Trail Wallet…is the best travel-centric expense tracking app I’ve used." The Professional Hobo

"Trail Wallet is super easy to use, fast, and has a fun and beautiful interface." Too Many Adapters


We are Simon Fairbairn and Erin McNeaney of Never Ending Voyage, a couple who've been travelling full time since March 2010. Managing our finances is what has enabled us to have so many wonderful experiences but, after 3 years on the road, we needed something better than scribbled notes, loose receipts, and complicated spreadsheets to track our expenses.

So we built Trail Wallet.

Nobody wants to worry about money while travelling, but we all do. Tracking your finances is a simple way to get some freedom from this financial anxiety.

Instead of just hoping you’ve got enough money, know.


Road tested by tens of thousands of travellers, the app is simple, clear and easy to use.

Organise your expenses by trip or by month, set yourself a daily budget, then easily add expenses as you go. When you get a bill or receipt, launch the app, add the amount using the Quick Add screen and you’re done. Forget about it. Get on with your day.

No more collecting receipts in bags or pockets. No more sitting with a calculator trying to work out how you’re doing. No more trying to remember how much that tuk-tuk cost.

At the end of the day or week or month or trip, you can see how you’re doing. A little over budget? No problem—our app will tell you what’s eating up your cash. Under budget? Good job—send a little reassurance to your friends and family using your favourite social media platform.

Customer Reviews

Don't let the cartoon fool ya!

I think this is my first ever app review, and I use lots of apps - okay I'm bad :-0
I've been using this now, almost every day for about four months on the road and it's great! Like I said in the title, it opens with a cartoon, cool and cute family thing, but it is a well thought out and elegant app that is very user friendly. Totally recommend the small fee to upgrade - simply awesome for travelers.
Nice work Simon!!!
And to anyone who reads this, I don't even know Simon, just found this app and his site from other travel blogs and reviews. It rocks.

A MUST for a budget traveler

No matter your budget, you need this app. I spent $5 to make sure I wouldn't over spend by hundreds. I'm traveling on a pretty small budget, and it's hard to keep track when spending in a different currency. This app makes it easy, and I love the "average" feature. Because some days you over spend when having to pay for your accommodation or transport, but you can be assured you're still on budget.
Trail Wallet is really saving my bank account! LOVE!

Very useful app. Worth the $5

I'm about to head out for a 6 month trip. Just by putting in a few of my preliminary expenses, I can tell this app is going to be extremely useful in keeping my budget in check. No more surprises when I check my bank account in the middle of my trip. I just don't think you should have to pay for extra themes.
