Travel Planner Software Recommendations

How do you guys keep track of all of your travel itineraries and flights/accommodations? I've always just used google maps multi-destination mode and a text file that has all my flight and hotel check-in and check-out dates with their associated confirmation codes. But that becomes a bit cumbersome and error prone if my travel plans last longer than about two weeks.

Do you ever use any travel or backpacker planner software or websites? Are they any good?

    i usually book stuff super last minute and have not great choice available though sometimes short notice discount but miss out on very in advance prices

    I stick to the old-fashioned methods.
    >confirmation emails saved to my inbox
    >sometimes the airline/hotel even reminds me shortly before I'm due to check in
    >save receipts/invoices/itineraries as PDFs on my computer
    >transfer the PDFs to my phone before I leave my home
    >print physical copies of the itineraries and keep them in a document folder in case my phone ever becomes dead/broken/lost/stolen
    I have never experienced any errors from these methods. I'm not even aware of any way to make it easier for myself. My trip lengths are usually a minimum one month or four weeks.

    I make a single microsoft Word document. I put all the hotels addresses and dates at the top.

    Next, I make a list of the cities and just put the 4 or 5 main things to do under each city. Then I email it to myself and print it out.

    Then, I just save any good restaurants or attractions in google maps with a pin.

    Protip, always download a google offline map of all the cities you're visiting about 2 weeks out. That way, you can be offline and just use your GPS to walk around a city.

    That is an outrageous itinerary for one trip. I hope that's a 3 month plan. You're going to be traveling for 90 percent of the trip if that's a 3 or 4 week trip. You'll get like 30 minutes in each city.

      That isn't a real itinerary. It's just an image I stole from bing.

      not op, but it looks cool. Saved it.

    Google maps locations saved, Google calendar with hotel names/flight info, email confirmations saved, and the first few hotels/flights on my itinerary printed out in hardcopy. It feels overkill but I've never missed anything, felt rushed, or had issues pulling up information when needed.

    a paper miniature notebook or my phones notepad

    all the locations with details in following a color code; red - sights, green - food places, blue - accomodation, transport, functional. Then the itinerary is an excel sheet in google drive.
