This step-by-step guide will help you to place your order.

1
Check your trip contents 

Because we want your Travel Book to look perfect, we'd like to ask you to double check all the content in your trip. Here's a list of things to check before you're really ready to hit the 'Preview & order' button.

  • Are your happy with the trip title and cover photo? If you want to change them then check out how to do that in this article: Change the layout of your Travel Book.
  • Are the trip's start and end date correct?
  • Please check all your steps for typos.
  • Make sure you didn't accidentally add any duplicate photos.
  • Is the route to your liking? In case there are inaccurate Travel Tracker (flight) lines, check out this article: How can I delete (inaccurate) Travel Tracker steps on my map?
  • Sweet. Now hit the ''Preview and order'' button!

  • Are there still low quality photos in the Travel Book? If the ⚠️ icon appears on a photo, this means that you have some work to do. Check out this article for quick steps on how to fix this.
  • Please see if the measurements on a step page of your Travel Book are correct. For altitude we'll let you choose between meters or feet and for temperature you can select Fahrenheit or Celsius. You can find the option to change this in your app Settings screen.
  • Want additional options? Tap the blue button that says "Edit Travel Book" to have control over the following extra functionalities:
    • De-select steps or photos.
    • Add more pages to your Travel Book.
    • Remove pages from your Travel Book.
    • Do you want more or less photos on one page? You can easily drag and drop photos for a different page layout.
    • You can rearrange the order of photos on the pages by dragging and dropping them.
    • Change the book title and/or author name.
    • Choose a different color for the Travel Book.
    • Hit the "Re-generate" button for the options to take effect.
  • If there is anything that you're not sure of or that seems to be missing, please contact support@polarsteps.com before placing your order. Placing your order means that you're happy with what you see :-).
  • You're almost done! Please continue and hit the "Checkout" button.

Too many photos in your Travel Book?
Please deselect some steps and or photos to stay under the max amount of 300 pages and generate your book again to proceed. You can also try to fit your whole trip into one Travel Book by placing the maximum of 4 photos on every page and by deselecting the step text.
