Organize your trips online with the free trip organizer from TripIt.
TripIt organizes all of your travel details inside separate itineraries for each trip, while keeping all of your flight times, check in reminders, and hotel details in one place.
You can also access your individual itineraries either online or on your mobile phone, or you can share your itineraries with colleagues or family members.
How the Trip Organizer Works
To get started, simply forward all of your travel booking confirmation emails to firstname.lastname@example.org. TripIt then associates the email with your account by looking at the email address, and then finds travel dates, travel times, and other pertinent travel information associated with each email.
You can also log into your account and add additional trip destinations, reviews, or other helpful trip information.
Trip Organizer with Maps and Directions
Once you forward your flight and hotel confirmation emails, TripIt will also generate local maps and driving directions for your destination using Google Maps. If you forward both your flight and hotel confirmation emails, TripIt will automatically generate driving directions between your airport and hotel.
With just the flight details, TripIt can also gather airport terminal maps.
Free Mobile Trip Organizer
Accessing your trip details is easy to do on your mobile phone. All you need is a mobile phone with internet access to get started.
Either visit the TripIt mobile site – m.tripit.com – and log into your account there to see your trip itineraries, or download any of the free apps for iPhone, Android, or Blackberry.
If you access your itinerary with any of the free apps, then the next time you want to access your itinerary, you don’t need an internet connection. The app stores the information automatically, making it easy to access airline confirmation numbers and flight numbers.
Trip Organizer Syncs with Your Calendar
One final free feature with TripIt is the ability to automatically add your travel dates to your calendar. You automatically sync your TripIt itineraries with Google Calendar, Apple iCal, Microsoft Outlook, among other calendar software providers, or you can often sync up your trip itineraries with your mobile calendar.
