Tripit: The App For Traveling

Submitted by on May 26, 2013 – 5:16 pmNo Comment

With the summer months in sight, it’s the time to travel, but for many professionals this means traveling for business. So, to make the process as less-stressful and “vacation-like” as possible, let Tripit  be your guide. The free app, which is available for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows 7 smartphones, launched in 2006. Ever since, Tripit has been the go-to app for anyone looking to organize their travel arrangements.

Tripit consolidates all travel information into a user’s account, making the process of verifying information quick and easy. It offers ways to create itineraries and share them with others through a personal email account that users have through the site. Traveling between different time zones isn’t an issue either; Tripit keeps all account information accessible for its users 24/7. Upgrades for Tripit begin at $49 and allow people to be alerted if there are changes to a scheduled flight, cancellations, and any alternative options; and while Tripit is a great travel tool, there are also other apps for booking the flight itself. Get the best deal possible by consulting Bing Travel. This free app explains the chance of a particular ticket price raising or falling due to the market value. Now, users are given the opportunity to see when the right time to purchase a ticket is.

In our modern world, there are so many apps that cater to every aspect of traveling for the frequent flier or the family going on vacation. For instance, flight apps, such as Kayak or Priceline are useful as well. Location-guide apps can help professionals know how to get around in a new area (check out Time Out – a perfect companion for anyone new to a city). CNN has even compiled a list of the 50 Ultimate Travel Apps… So Far that covers everything from translations apps, to ones that help book hotels (Tripit is ranked number 4).

It is important that professionals understand their resources before heading on a trip. The more prepared and organize one is, the more time there is for business. So relax as much as possible this summer, and let Tripit do the hard work for you.
