Today at PhoCusWright, we announced four exciting new innovations built on TripIt’s open platform, which is now a vibrant community of more than 1,200 developers.
Put your itinerary data to work, and get personalized reservations, travel guides, and deals in return:
1. Personalized Reservations in Fewer Clicks on Avis.com
Booking a rental car is now easier and faster if you connect your TripIt account with Avis.com. Itineraries auto-populate new reservations and help Avis anticipate any changes in your travel schedule.
2. DIY Travel Guides with Frommer’s® Remix by HP
To get a personalized travel guide from Frommer’s Travel powered by HP custom publishing technology, import your TripIt itineraries at www.frommersremix.com, and you can get expert recommendations on activities, restaurants, nightlife, shopping, as well as money saving coupons for your trip.
3. Trip Recommendations from Friends by FlyMuch
By sharing trip itineraries automatically on FlyMuch.com, you can get recommendations from friends and social networking connections, and build an online travel profile.
4. Destination-Based Dining Deals from FoodieBytes
Get personalized restaurant deals in the cities you’re traveling to by connecting your TripIt account with Foodiebytes.com.
