Social media is an excellent tool for trip planning and finding new places to travel to. Pinterest is my favorite platform because it offers unlimited inspiration, allows you to create “dream boards”, and allows you collect useful information and travel guides.
Pinterest is a great tool for organizing and inspiring any type of trip. It can help you plan the details of your stay, the restaurants you like, and the top attractions.
How to use Pinterest for planning your next trip
Pinterest is the digital version of a bulletin board. It allows you to pin things of interest to digital boards, which you can arrange however you like. You can “pin” photos from websites and travel blogs to other boards or upload your own photos.
Pinned photos can also be linked to pertinent information. When you click on a pin that says “20 Trips to Take in your 20’s”, it will take you to the relevant web page.
Pinterest’s best feature is its ability to create a profile with unlimited travel photos, guides and hacks and then follow others who share similar interests.
One beautiful photo can inspire you to travel!
Pinterest is not just about beautiful pictures. There are many helpful articles available on almost any topic. You can find information on all aspects of travel, including tips for solo female travelers and a guide to packing your carry-on.

You can create unlimited boards and pin all your wanderlust! You can create boards on different topics and then type in keywords, activities, or destinations in the search box to browse a vast array of information and beautiful pictures.
These images can be pin to your boards so you can always refer to them when needed.
You can find new destinations and places by following other travelers and looking for them. You can also “follow” a board if you find it full of tips or destinations you like.

There are many aspects to planning a trip. Pinterest allows you to create multiple pin boards that cover different areas of your trip. Because I am a visual person, I make individual boards for each trip.
Planning a trip doesn’t need to be difficult! Pinterest makes planning fun!
I love to pin useful articles about the place I’m visiting, as well as images of places I want, landmarks that I want, cafes that I want, and everything else I can think of!
Pinterest Travel Tips
Useful tip: The Pinterest browser button allows you to pin images from any location. This includes images that you find on Pinterest. If you are planning your trip and can’t find the image you want on Pinterest, you can simply visit the hotel website. Your plugin will let you pin any image from that page to your board.
Pinterest’s ability to help you plan a trip is another great feature. You can use it to determine what to pack for each type of trip or destination.
Pinterest allows you to search for inspiration when it comes to travel outfits, such as what to wear to long flights or to wander the streets of Rome. You can also find information about what you should bring with you to your flight.

Pinterest also allows you to create vision boards that inspire you with travel photos. It’s a great way to see other people’s travel photos and to get inspiration for photos that I can take when I reach my destination.
It’s a great way for you to brainstorm and get in touch with your ideas!
