When planning a trip from the Save tab do I have to plan the exact number of days as my friend’s trip?

Yes, you are required to either enter the same amount of days as your friend’s trip or extend the trip to make it longer.

 

To plan a shorter version of your friend’s trip you will have to first create a trip with at least the same amount of days as your friends. Once the trip has been created you can drag activities from the days you would like to delete to the days you would like to keep. You can also delete any activities you would like to get rid of.  Once the days that you would like to delete are empty, you can go to the information tab on the top right corner of your itinerary and tap edit and shorten your travel dates.
