I travel pretty frequently for my job at Stone Ward. So, I am constantly on the search for the best suitcase, toiletries bag and laptop bag for Eloise. None of these things have been secured as the perfect fits yet, but I can firmly recommend a travel app for iPhone users: Tripit.
I have been using Tripit now for several months and recently upgraded to the “Pro” version for the added features. I don’t know how I traveled without it before. Here is why Tripit rocks:
- Forward my email itineraries in whatever format they come to me to the Tripit email address and all the travel details are automatically uploaded into the app: flight, car rental, hotel, confirmation numbers, and maps.
- Check into flights directly from the Tripit app.
- Push notifications of delays and gate changes.
- Automatic sharing of travel information with the people that you put in your “inner circle,” like family, friends, co-workers, etc. This is my favorite feature. (Now my dad doesn’t have to write down all my travel on his calendar; he can just access it in his own Tripit app.)
I love that I can pull up Tripit and see all the details for the four upcoming trips I have booked without having to search emails or shuffle through files and papers. If you are a traveler, definitely check it out.
