Overall, in our opinion, handtrip is useful to manage expenses for Individual trip or Family trip in various currencies and Home currency. Additional feature of ability to split expenses would have made handtrip more useful for group trips too. We recommend this App to track expenses and compare with budgeted amount for Individual and Family trips.
