Reviewing my itinerary in TripIt makes it possible for me to catch my mistake. ✅ ✅ Itineraries are more than just flights, hotels and cars I like that you can add things in TripIt like seminars, conferences, or any special events / dinners. It is great to see an entire itinerary in one place. ✅
  7. 7. TripIt Feature How We Use It Him Her Adding other plans When staying with friends or family, I add their address and contact info into my plans ✅ Flight check-in notifications (Pro feature) I love getting the TripIt email notifications a few minutes before the check-in window opens – then I’m ready to be one of the first to check in for the flight. ✅ ✅ Telephone numbers for hotels and more If I need to make a change to my travel plans, the last thing I want to do is stop and search for contact information. TripIt has it all. ✅ ✅ Hotel cancellation details It‘s easy to see the hotel‘s cancellation policy for my reservation – just in case I need to make a change ✅

TripIt lets me make modifications when I receive a seat upgrade or there is a change in type of aircraft. ✅
  9. 9.

We’ve each decided to keep our travels off of social media for now.
