"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

Very happy we have this app

We use this app every day in our RTW trip and log every single expense no matter how small.
It is the best and most convenient way we know of keeping our expenses 100% monitored. It's biggest strength is its ease of logging expenses, followed by the categorization options. We recommend it fo sho

Suggested Improvements:
1) Let the user order the tags in a custom order so as to lump together similar tags. For example "Bus, Taxi, Train" together, followed by "China, Japan, Thailand". This makes it easier to log items quickly

2) Be able to delete a tag or category without losing that tag or category from items you previously logged. I don't want to have a country tag or category from months ago if I won't use it again

3) Be able to edit the name of a tag or category and have it changed in every previous items logged with that tag or category. I often change my mind about a category I named at the beginning of a trip and would like to change it, but the app does not let me.

4) small improvement: If I add a currency, it won't confirm that the currency was added. A message would be nice just to be sure it worked

5) In the stats option it would be nice to see the chart with percentages in addition to $ amounts. I don't necessarily wanna share my spent amounts with friends or family, but in % I would not mind

Very useful app!

I love this app. It's been a real help with tracking our expenses on trips and figuring out where all our money went 😀

The simple interface makes it easy to add on the go. Also I lie the category breakdown. I actually like that it can't be customized as I think I would overdo it and complicate things. I also love the ability to csv export the expenses.

It's almost perfect. I would love to see an enhancement to add income (i.e. If a fellow traveler reimburses you for an expense) so that it subtracts from the totals. Also for the export capability, it would be nice to export a full report of the expense breakdown as well as the summary and category views.

Great app with awesome features, BUT...

I've given this 5 stars because it's an amazing app that's great for managing my budget while traveling. My biggest problem is the "characters" (I think Erica Fogg is one of their names) that show up on the budget screen. I'd love the ability to turn those off - just give me a no frills budget app, please!
