Woman Shares Awesome Hack for Splitting Expenses While Traveling

This will make things so much easier.

Traveling with friends comes with a lot of perks, including the ability to split some of the heftier costs of going on vacation, like the hotel room. But doing so can be a bit of a hassle sometimes. Divvying up the costs, making sure everyone pays up — who wants to deal with that kind of thing when you're trying to relax and enjoy some much needed time off? 

Since there's a hack for everything in the travel world, maybe we should be less surprised that there's also a hack for this. In a TikTok video, @blackgirlsdoreviews shared how they easily track their expenses while traveling and make sure everyone gets paid back in a timely fashion. 

In a voiceover, she shared how most of our trips with friends or extended family tend to go — one person paid for a certain meal, another picked up the tab at the bar, all with the expectation that everyone would pay their fair share later on. But instead of actually having to do math on vacation, she uses the Splittr app. 

In the app, you put in each expense as you go, and you can add how many people each cost covered, along with notes that might be helpful at the end of the trip when you've forgotten about those meals and activities that happened when you first arrived.

At the end of the trip, the app calculates what each person owes and the easiest way to settle the final bill, eliminating stress and arguments along the way. Where has this app been all our lives? 

If you want to check it out, Splittr is available on both the App Store and the Google Play store. This is going to be so helpful on our next trip!
