Most of us can agree that when traveling for work or when taking a vacation, it is definitely not about the journey and all about the destination. Planning, organizing, and coordinating a trip can make many of us trip out and possibly loose a few hairs, but the website Tripit, has come to our rescue and helps us keep the hairs on our head and our much needed sanity.
Tripit can be used online or as a mobile app that will make your short or long trips away from home a much easier process. They work with more than a thousand sites, from flights, rail, cruise, rental cars, events, restaurants, and hotels, to help make your travels a less stressful experience.
After signing up to Tripit, you will be given several options that will have them create an itinerary that has all of your trip details in one place. You can either choose if you want them to automatically create master itineraries for you or you can manually send your information by simply forwarding confirmation emails you receive to, firstname.lastname@example.org. You will also be given the choice to have your plans from your Gmail or Google Apps inbox automatically imported to Tripit. No matter which options you choose, all can be accessed anytime, either online or from a mobile device.
Tripit will also sync your itinerary with all of your plans to your calendar so you don’t miss your flight, an important event or special restaurant reservation during your trip. They also make it extremely easy for your travel plans to be sent to your friends, family members, and co-workers, so they too know when you will be away.
Although many of us would pay a lot of money to have peace of mind while traveling, Tripit is completely free. However, they do offer a paid service you can choose to use instead, called Tripit Pro, which offers you even more. For $49 a year (currently offering a free 30 day trial), Tripit Pro will alert you about flight delays, cancellations, or gate changes; it will provide you with alternate flights; organize your frequent flyer information in one place, and advise you when your airfare is eligible for flight refunds, saving you money. – Simply put, it’s more like having a personal assistant with you while you travel.
Whether you choose to go free or go Pro, Tripit will make your work travels or vacation planning a more organized and less stressful ordeal. It’s simple; Tripit takes away the all too often tripping out over traveling and brings back the much needed fun.
