When you’re traveling, the last thing you want to do is stop and calculate what time you’ll need to leave for the airport. How long will it take me? Will there be traffic? What’s the best way to get there?
Well, you can finally stop stressing! With our latest updates, TripIt has got you covered.
TripIt Pro’s Latest Feature: Go Now
At the end of March, we announced Go Now, TripIt Pro’s newest feature that tells you when you should leave for the airport and even sends you a push notification 10 minutes before it’s time to go.
So how does it work? As a TripIt Pro user, you’ll see the new Go Now Feature on your flight details screen in the mobile app. Twenty-four hours before any U.S. domestic or international flight, you can check Go Now to see a suggested time to leave for the airport based on your location, current flight status and local traffic patterns. Two hours before you need to leave, a countdown timer will begin, showing you how long you have until it’s time to head to the airport. Once you’re on your way, TripIt Pro’s Go Now feature will show your estimated arrival time.
Most recently, we made some enhancements to our Go Now feature to make it even better. Now you can adjust the alert based on your travel preferences. This gives you the option to arrive at the airport with as much, or as little, time before your flight as you’d like. We’ve also expanded the feature to cover not only domestic but also international flights.
But what about finding the best way to and from the airport?
The new TripIt Navigator feature helps you get from point A to point B more easily with a search tool that shows you the transportation options available to you. It will also show you the estimated costs and travel times for each option, so you can decide which works best. You can find Navigator within your flight, hotel and rental car details screens.
Did you add a restaurant reservation to your itinerary? Our recent update to Navigator also helps you find the best transportation options for getting to your table.
A Better Experience
Other exciting updates to our mobile app include our updated flight screen, making it easier to find the information you need, as well as the ability to quickly merge two TripIt accounts right in the app.
