You want to get planning, so we’ve made it easy for you. Begin by clicking the orange Create a Trip button on the top right of your Trips dashboard. This will create a blank, unnamed itinerary.

The Trips dashboard in the Pilot Social Trip planner. A heading of "Upcoming Trips" with 3 trip cards underneath consisting of cover photos and titles. An orange button that reads "Create a trip" to the right of the heading.

(Psst...are you more a watcher and not a reader? We got you covered:)

To ensure your trip is easy to identify, fill in the name of your trip in the upper left corner.
Names could be related to your destination (London Getaway), your activity (Pub Crawl in UK), or your reason for traveling (Bachelorette Weekend!)

Add the date range of your trip by clicking the “Add Dates” button. The date range selector will appear. Use arrows to progress to the correct month, and select your start date first by clicking the appropriate day. Clicking a second date will designate that as the end of your date range. Hit “Done” to confirm the date range.

An example trip itinerary in the Pilot Social Trip planner web app. Title in the top left corner reads "Sample Trip - UK 2023" and next to it the "Add Dates" button is selected, displaying a dropdown calendar to choose dates for the trip.

The final step will be to add a cover photo. Clicking “Add a trip photo” will allow you to upload your own photo by clicking upload or by searching the Upslash library. To search the library type in your search term, then press enter.

A pop-up window within a trip itinerary titled "Select a cover photo". Just underneath the title there is an upload button on the left and a search bar with the word "London" typed into its on the right. Under these items are 6 images associated with the London search term.

Click the photo you wish to use and then you’re all set to start!
