TripIt

Your travel itinerary at your fingertips – from flights to hotel reservations.

Why the Gold Star status: You’re always digging through your emails to find your flight itinerary or your hotel reservations. Your husband or your mother has a million questions or someone needs to know when to pick you up. It all feels so disheveled and then you’re breathless trying to make a super- tight connection and grab food while you’re sprinting. Sometimes an app so elegantly solves the problem.

  • TripIt transforms your emails into a master itinerary for every trip so all your plans are in one place.
  • It’s a detailed, daily itinerary with important dates, times, and confirmation numbers, plus directions, maps, weather etc. 
  • You can forward your itinerary to people you need to keep in-the-know (they don’t have to have the app)

Just forward all your confirmations to plans@tripit.com. It’s that easy!
