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 freedom from 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.

Great app for keeping on top of your budget!

I absolutely love this app - it has been so useful for my travels round South America, and it has helped keep my spending in check!

The only thing I’d like to see would be if the app, at the start of each day, could calculate what you’ve spent so far and change your daily budget each day, so you get an up-to-date idea of where you’re at if you over-/under-spent the previous day. I find this would be especially helpful as I pay for accommodation & flights before starting the trip, so I add these to the first day, but it still tells me my daily budget is an average of my entire budget, instead of calculating what I’ve already spent and giving me an average of what’s left.

Other than that, I think the app is a fab idea as I’m not usually very careful with my money, so this helps me to be sensible!

Incredible! Perfect for Backpackers!

Other than the scary robot that sometimes gets a little mad at us over spending, Trail Wallet is absolutely incredible! My partner and I have been using it for over a year backpacking and it has been so good to keep control of our spending. Not only does it keep track of all of your spending but when people ask for advice for the costs of things, you can actually go back and tell them! I’ve been travelling for 6 years now and it’s the best thing ever, I tell everyone I meet about it and would now not travel without using it! We purchased the proper app so we can add as many trips as we like! Highly recommend, absolutely brilliant idea!

Great App

I used this app whilst on a 6 month trip, it was great for keeping a track of my spend against the budget I had. I was travelling g across several countries so the ability to have various currencies was very helpful. I also liked the ability to export the data which is helping me in budgeting for the next trip. The only reason I’ve not given it 5 stars is the fact I’d have liked to be able to sync across multiple devices which I know the developers want to do but it isn’t quite there yet. All in all, I’d recommend this app for anyone wanting to manage their budget whilst travelling or on holiday.
