Google Maps has become the modern day atlas for travelers everywhere. A quick search of a desired destination within Google Maps allows users to plan their travel with current traffic updates, turn-by-turn directions and even satellite imagery. TripIt, your go-to travel itinerary creator, automatically generates local maps and driving directions via Google Maps using the confirmation emails you forward to .
Automatic Maps & Directions
TripIt automatically places maps and directions in your itinerary for any and all lodgings you have reserved. For example, after forwarding flight confirmation and hotel reservation emails to TripIt, the program will automatically generate the best route between your airport and the hotel. If you would rather manually input all maps and directions into your travel itinerary, you may turn off the auto-import feature in your settings (visit the for more information).
Custom Maps & Directions
You can add a map and/or directions for any location to your travel itinerary manually with TripIt. Simply type in the appropriate address (or addresses) and TripIt will use Google Maps to generate what you need. From there you can print out a custom map or directions or access the information through your mobile device.
Using a map and directions in your itinerary on TripIt’s mobile app requires the pre-instillation of Google Maps to your mobile device. TripIt will open Google Maps on your device should you click on a map or directions in your travel itinerary. From there, you can use a variety of features on Google Maps to reach your destination. From calculated travel time to highlighted traffic updates, Google Maps will provide you with the best possible route to the destination of your choice.
