TripIt – Travel planning done right

22Aug07

TripIt gives you a great way to organize your travel plans in a neat little package.  There are a few ways you can use TripIt.  You can simply email your itinerary to plans@tripit.com and TripIt will automatically organize your flights, hotels, car rentals, etc.  It will even include weather forecasts and maps for your destination.  You can also enter the information in manually and add activities, maps, and notes on specific days.  If you don’t have a trip planned yet you can use TripIt to search for flights, hotels, and car rentals and save your searches for future reference.  They also have a handy dandy “TripClipper” that you can add to your bookmarks toolbar to instantly save stuff you find on the web to your TripIt account.  When you’re ready to go you can print out your itinerary easily and be on your way.

TripIt is currently in private beta but I have 5 invites for the first 5 emails I get in the comments.  Here’s my screencast tour of TripIt:

(note:  TripIt made their own screencast demo that points out some features not mentioned in mine.  Check it out here!

  1. Thanks, Molly, for another great demo! Would there be any invites left? I really like the ‘Clipper feature, since so much of my (non-business) travel is spontaneous. How often do we find some conference near our travel destination or find some ridiculously low airfare while we’re surfing? The thing, we find this stuff when we’re not looking for it, so to be able to clip it and easily add it to existing itineray or future plans, instead of having to totter off to a whole other website and log in, is huge.

    Cheers,
