SAN FRANCISCO, October 28, 2009 -- TripIt, the trip management company, today announced that TripIt Pro is now available to travelers outside the United States. TripIt Pro is a premium service that gives frequent travelers a new level of control, convenience and peace of mind while traveling.

TripIt Pro works in conjunction with the award-winning TripIt itinerary service, providing additional time-saving travel tools:

* Mobile Alerts - Receive the latest info about flights delays, cancellations, connections, gate changes, baggage claim and more, on any mobile device, for any airline no matter where the flight was booked.
* Alternate Flights - Get re-booking options for any flight delays or cancellations, including flight status and available seats, across all available airlines.
* Point Tracker – Keep track of frequent traveler accounts, balances and expirations, all in one place, with expanded support for more international airlines.
* Inner Circle – Automatically share every trip with key people like an administrative assistant or spouse.

"One quarter of our customers live outside the United States, so we're thrilled to give them access to TripIt Pro," commented Gregg Brockway, TripIt president. "With their feedback, we've steadily expand support to cover hundreds of international airlines, hotels and other travel providers."

TripIt is extending their popular charter member program to travelers outside the United States. Non-U.S. travelers can sign-up for a free trial before November 30, 2009 at www.tripit.com/pro and enter promo code CHARTER to lock in a special charter price of only $49 per year ($69 standard price). Charter members of TripIt Pro will never pay more than $49 per year.

TripIt Pro works in most major countries and with most major mobile carriers. There are a few countries, including Canada, Japan and Mexico, where SMS text alerts cannot be sent via all mobile carriers, but travelers in those countries can set-up TripIt Pro to deliver email alerts to their mobile device.
