  • Our company motto is "The best journey is the one you're planning."
  • Planning Motion is a web based application that is accessible from a computer's web browser.. There is no installation or update to do.
  • To access the application, users must first create an account.
  • Each user has their own dedicated space and will have an exclusive access to it by logging in to Planning Motion's secure login page using their email address and the password they created when creating their account.
  • Although the application was designed for optimal use on a computer,it can also be accessed on the web browser of a tablet.
  • However, while still possible, the experience of using it on a cell phone is not very good.
  • It is required to have an internet connection to access the Planning Motion travel planner.

  • The user will have the choice between 2 subscription plans: Excursion or Escape.
  • The Excursion plan is free.  (offer valid for a limited time) It gives access to almost** all the features of the application, but limits the number of trips, stops, accommodations or activities that can be added to the itinerary. It's a good way to try out the application for free, or to prepare a short travel itinerary.
  • The Escape Plan unlocks the limits of the excursion plan. With an annual subscription of $75 at a locked-in price** + taxes, users will be able to create as many trips as they want. 
  • To see the list of features and compare the 2 subscriptions  plans:
  • If Evasion users choose not to renew their annual subscription, they can revert to the free subscription. They will still have access to all the information added during their paid subscription, but they will no longer be able to edit or add to it. When ever they decide to re-subscribe to the Escape Plan.They will regain the ability to add and modify their information, which will obviously still be there in the Planning Motion account.

With the exception of the KML file for transferring a trip to Google Maps,, Organic Maps mobile applications and compatible Garmin GPS units, as well as uploading JPG or PDF files to the planner.

** The price will remain the same as long as the subscription is renewed annually without any interruptions.

  • The Planning Motion web application was created by 2 Quebecers with a passion for travel.
  • Nathalie Bergeron and Olivier Ratheau decided in March 2017 to develop the app they had long dreamed of for planning their trips.
  • After the development and testing phases, Nathalie and Olivier had chosen to make the application available to all on March 8, 2020.
  • The unpredictable pandemic obviously had an impact on the launch of Planning Motion. Nathalie and Olivier chose to simply continue, as they intend to do in the future anyway, to improve the application and add new features.
  • Since the beginning of 2021, a growing community of Planning Motion users is being built. A community of travelers who were also looking for such a tool to plan their trips.

Planning Motion is a partner of the FQCC since 2024
