Trail Wallet is an easy travel expense tracker. Designed to be fast, it takes the headache out of expense tracking so you can focus on the fun.

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.

** 3.4 Release Notes **

I am pleased to announce: PHOTO SUPPORT!

[celebration emoji] [big smiling face emoji] [exhausted relief emoji]

- Images are attached to individual amounts (one image per amount)
- You can import images from your photo library or take new photos with the camera
- Tapping on an image on the Add Amount screen will show you a full size version
- Images are backed up to iCloud with the rest of your data
- You can export all of your images at once from the Share screen using any supported method (messages, email, AirDrop, save to library, print, etc.)
- Exported CSV files have a reference to the image filename so you can match up the photos in your spreadsheets


- Tapping on a bar chart now shows you a complete summary of that day's data
- New Caledonia currency added
- Spreading amounts support has been much improved—if your trip has a fixed end date, it won't let you spread an amount past the last day
- Add Amount screen won't let you save if you haven't entered an amount (this one's for me: sometimes I get so caught up entering the metadata, I forget to add the actual amount itself)
- Drag and Drop support for reordering categories and trips (iOS 11 only)
- Tons of other bug fixes and small enhancements

Because the new photo system uses iCloud to store photos alongside your amount data. I've tried to choose a photo resolution that balances low file sizes with enough definition for you to read those receipts in the future. I'm trying not to burn through your iCloud allowance but let me know if you feel I haven't got the file size/resolution balance right!

If you are having any issues with the app or if there's a feature you'd like to see, please contact me directly at so I can assist you.

Fantastic app

Al from Australia

We used the travel app for our European trip and it was fantastic.
Very simple to use often my wife and I would both rush to get the iPad as we both wanted to update the travel wallet!

We suggested to Simon along with others that adding photos of our receipts for each transaction ( train tickets, restaurant bills of what we had to eat etc ) into the app would take the app to a new level!
Needles to say the latest version of the travel app , allows photos of receipts to be added.
We quit often use the travel app on when we go on weekend trips away - now as it's interesting to have all our trip memories in an electronic format.
Highly recommend this app to all travellers.

You need this app


If you have any desire to track/budget or control your spending this is the app. You could use it for generic spending as well - not just for holidays. There is no amount of gushing I could do which would adequately describe the brilliance!
Pay for it and enjoy. This app makes me happy in ways fee apps do.

Essential travel app


Excellent app! I've used this app on several trips over the last few years. It makes budgeting on the road so much simpler. Everything you need is there, and it's so simple to use. Perfectly designed for independent travellers.
