This App Will Help You Effortlessly Plan a Multi-city European Vacation
Want to go to Europe but don't know where to start? There's an app for that.
One of the most time-honored epic trips for Americans is a whirlwind tour of Europe. But, unfortunately, crisscrossing across the continent often takes hours of preparation to plan through.
But now there’s a new app that will plan a multi-city European trip for you.
Eightydays (which is based out of Belarus) was created to give travelers an easy look into the options available when traveling across Europe.

Users start by picking a city to start and finish in (for now, it’s necessary to start and end the trip in the same place). Then select departure date, how long the trip will be and how many destinations to include. Users can also select if they want to look at cities in Europe, the European Union or just the Schengen Zone. The app will then create an itinerary, complete with flight information and Airbnb rates in each city, for those on a budget.
It’s possible to continue shuffling options until the app stumbles upon an itinerary that looks good. And don’t worry about inconvenient travel: The site says it specifically weeds out far-away airports and early morning departures that can drain travelers on the road.
Although it’s not (yet) a perfect system for booking an entire European trip, Eightydays can help give travelers a better idea of price points for different journeys while potentially introducing them to destinations they may not have previously considered.
