When comparing Google Sheets vs Cabinet Beta, the Slant community recommends Google Sheets for most people. In the question“What are the best Material Design apps?” Google Sheets is ranked 52nd while Cabinet Beta is ranked 69th. The most important reason people chose Google Sheets is:
Infinite row/columns and all the separate tabs to play with. Trips can be organized with as many attributes and calculations as you see fit.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Scalable, customized organization
Pro Good for budgeting
Since it is a spreadsheet, very easy to calculate budget, and any secondary calculations as well (e.g. cost/day, cost/location, etc.)
Pro Easy to share
Google Sheets are always accessible on the cloud, and easy to control permissions to share with relevant parties.
Pro Easy to export
Physically (printing) and otherwise (converting to excel, attaching to emails).
Can be accessed from any device via the browser, or Google's iOS and Android apps.
Pro Material design
Inspired by Android Lollipop design.
Con Not optimized for travel
Unlike travel-specific websites, Sheets won't be able to tell if one link is a flight, and another is a hotel reservation, nor will it be able to know which cells correspond to what leg of the trip.
Con Zero foundation
While there are sample layouts (see Travel planner), it's likely that each person's trip planning needs will be unique enough that it's better to start from scratch. Of course, once you use Sheets for one trip, it'll be easier and faster to set it up for future trips.
Con In beta
Cabinet Beta is beta software which means there may be bugs or incomplete features.
Con Bloat has started creeping in
e.g. version 188.8.131.52 added an audio player.
