We all know just how stressful traveling can be at times. There are so many different factors you have to consider, like plane tickets, lodging, rental cars, restaurants, leisure activities, and everything in between. Inevitably, something ends up getting overlooked.
Well, let me introduce you guys to my new traveling buddy: Tripit.
All of the different traveling sites out there try to offer you kushy package deals that include transportation, hotels, etc., but how do you know you're actually getting the best deal out there? I for one like to keep my options open in order to score the best deal, and that is why Tripit is my go-to app for traveling and keeping organized. Tripit keeps all of your travel details in order and produces a master itinerary online, so no more carrying around a stapled paper book of all your plans while worrying about losing a piece a paper. Your itinerary automatically includes maps, directions, and even the weather surrounding your trip, to help you plan your days more efficiently. You also have the option to add a bit of a personal touch with travel notes, pictures, and more. So, really, there is no reason to pull your hair out or silently curse that shyster travel agent anymore.
You can download the app for free, but if you are feeling a little more "first class", you can purchase TripitPro and take part in some of the bonuses, like knowing if your flight is going to be delayed or cancelled before you even get to the airport, or avoid being placed on hold for 20 minutes and have all of your frequent flyer account information conveniently at your fingertips.
Traveling should be an enjoyable occasion, guys, and Tripit aims to keep it that way. Definitely check it out before the next time you hit the road. I'll definitely be using it when I head to Vegas for CES next month!
