Review of “TripIt” Travel Organizer App

If you travel for business, you probably already know how big of a headache it can be to keep track of your itinerary and plans along with documenting all of your expenses and other important write-off information. Luckily, there is as app that has emerged to help manage your business trips called TripIt, and the best part is that it is available in a free version.Description of TripIt

The app itself is incredibly easy to use and install and it is compatible with both Android devices as well as Apple. All you need to do is forward all your business trip emails to a pre-specified email address from TripIt and the app will organize all of the details into an easy-to-follow itinerary. If you travel a lot for business, the paid version adds extra features including real-time flight alerts, a seat tracker, flight finder functions, refund notifications, frequent flyer point tracker, and much more. However, the free version still gives you access to the bulk of the features including:

  • Forward hotel, airline, car rental, and restaurant confirmation emails to plans@tripit.com to create an instant itinerary (If you use Gmail or Google Apps, it happens automatically)
  • Access itineraries anytime, on any device (even offline)
  • Get directions, maps and weather for each destination
  • Sync trip plans with your Google Calendar or Outlook
  • Add or edit plans manually (from the app or on the website)
  • Share some (or all) of your trip plans via email or social

My Review

5-Stars

Overall, I would give the “TripIt” app a rating of 5 out of 5 stars. I do a lot of traveling for business, so having a companion app that does exactly what you need it to do is a breath of fresh air. There is nothing better than an app that takes care of putting together your itinerary for you and keeping you on task through the whole journey. I also like the features of the paid version because it takes care of tracking the business expenses as well. Anything that takes care of this much paperwork and effort for me is certainly worth a great review, and that’s why I gave if 5 stars.
