Having the same problem, glad to know it's not just me. However the solution provided in the answers did help. The "create a round trip" button isn't there anymore.

The "Create a Round Trip" button is missing.

Thanks for joining on this thread, @gkramer.


I appreciate you for following the steps outline by my colleague above. Let's get your Round Trip button to appear by doing some basic troubleshooting steps. This way, you create and track a round trip as soon as possible.


To start, I'd recommend accessing your account through incognito. These browsers won't collect any cache and cookies. This way, we can check if it's a browser-related issue. 


Here are the shortcut keys:


  • Google Chrome: Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Safari 11 or newer: ⌘ + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox: Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Microsoft Edge: Ctrl + Shift + P


Once logged in, go back to the Add trip page and check the Round Trip tab. If you see it, please go back to your normal browser and clear the cache to speed up your browser. Using other supported browsers is a good option too.


If the issue keeps going, I'd advise communicating with our Technical Support. They have tools capable of pulling up your account in a secure environment and send a ticket to our engineers for investigation.


Here's how: 


  1. Go to the Help menu, then click Contact Us
  2. Type your concern in the box and tap Let's talk
  3. Choose either Get a call or Start a chat
  4. Complete the required data and submit the request.


Please feel free to check our support hours to ensure we can address your concern quickly.


Additionally, you can also click the Download Trips on the Trips page. This way, you can review and track your mileage data. 



You may also check out these articles below about fixing some mileage issues and handling mileage reimbursement. 



Feel free to leave a comment below if you have additional questions about mileage or how the call goes. I'd be glad to support you. Take care.

Me too - no "round trip" button

I've been using the Round Trip button almost daily. That and the Duplicate Trip feature are suddenly missing from QBO. Actually, the entire quick menu that always appeared to the right of my listed trips is missing. Please help! I cleared my browser cache, tried incognito window, used different browser, etc. Please help!

Same here. Missing the button. Tried the steps suggested. No change.

I spoke to Quickbooks this morning - they couldn't resolve the issue.

I have found that once you have created a 'one way' trip there is a circle to the right hand side of the created trip that gives you the 'round trip' option. Click this and the return journey is created! :)

Hi Barnshaw!


could you post a screen shot of the circle of where to change a trip to round trip please? I can’t see it. Am using the app on an iPhone.
