Tripit – A Joyful Discovery for Organizing Travel Plans

By Lakshmi:

Who?  Anyone who is planning a trip and wants to organize their stream of reservations in one handy spot.

What? Tripit is a website and a phone app.

How? Just go to Tripit.com and sign up for an account.  Download the app for your phone and you are ready to go.

Why?  As avid travelers, we thought we had it pretty good when we eliminated paper on our travels and had all our travel plans in a folder on email.  Boy….were we living in the dark ages compared to what Tripit offers.  Just this afternoon, I went to Tripit.com and signed up for an account.  I then proceeded as instructed to email my airline, hotel and car rental reservations to the email address provided and within seconds, my Tripit account had an organized itinerary for me with all my details chronologically arranged in a single spot.  The usability of the site was simply superb.

I was already delighted, but there were a few more pleasant surprises to come.  I had one of my reservations as an email exchange and the service simply slotted this as a note in my travel outline.  It also plotted the drive from the airport to my hotel.  Additionally, it showed me all kinds of special offers from Groupon and others on things to experience at my destination.

I proceeded to download the app for my iPhone and now my entire travel plan is literally at my fingertips.  I have not done this yet, but the service also lets you share your plans with family and friends.

  1. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues
    with your site. It appears as if some of the text in your posts
    are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This may be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before. Thank you
