Complicated travel itineraries are a thing of the past

Facing a complicated travel itinerary? Perry Timms has a solution

We live in a world of video calls and virtual work – yet if you’re one of the many people who still find themselves travelling for work an awful lot, you’ll appreciate a well-organized itinerary. Welcome, then, to the app that can help you with a range of logistics, documentation and reminders: Tripit.

Tripit aggregates information from flight confirmations, hotel reservations and even taxi bookings, so you need only go to one app for all the details you need. Creating a master itinerary is as simple as downloading the app and forwarding your confirmation emails to Tripit’s own email. The app synchronizes your calendar and even provides helpful tips, like recommending places close to your hotel, and information on getting around the city.

There is a subscription service option and Tripit for teams, too, but the free app has most of the functionality that the typical user would want.

Within the app, travel schedules show you where to be and when. The Navigator function shows you options to get from one point to another, like CityMapper or Maps, and includes handy maps of airports and terminals.

Features like in-flight experience ratings, tracking compensation eligibility due to delays or cancellations, and even a very handy neighbourhood safety feature for where you’re staying, ensure this app provides peace of mind as well as an at-a-glance view of your schedule. If you’re about to hit the road, Tripit is well worth a look.
