We have 3 reviews for TripIt. The average overall ratings is 2.8 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: Hands down, one of the best productivity improvements in my travel life! Having to assemble and manage itineraries from hundreds of airlines, hotels, travel aggregators, and car rental companies is a nightmare. As someone who is on the road 1/2 of their time, being able to book on any one of these sites, and have their component of my travel plans show up in an organized, itinerary on my phone is invaluable. I have no idea what the poor reviews here are talking about. I can only assume they have never used the app!
Pros: Near instantaneous parsing of itineraries from hundreds of airlines, hotels, travel aggregators, and car rental companies Convenient, editable itinerary in the app itself, or on the website
Cons: None. Seriously.
Overall Opinion: This app/Web-based software is fraught with bugs. I am required to regarly uninstall/install the android version. The interface between the app and the browser are superficially similar, but there are many differences. But, beware. This app is very buggy. I have found that a simple process that should take a matter of seconds can result in hours of work.I dread using the software because it is just so flakey. Save your money and look for an alternative. This thing is a nightmare. I am looking for a viable, reliable alternative.
Overall Opinion: TripIt provides a unique service to travelers by creating an itinerary for all of the major parts of your trip without you having to do much work. The app does a good job of analyzing travel emails for the relevant information to add it to your itinerary. If something is added incorrectly, you can easily go back and edit it. TripIt also helps you navigate from one place to another by adding directions for events that are back to back on the schedule. While it is convenient that TripIt includes street maps, airport terminal maps, and other maps, the maps feature could use some improvement. First, the maps tool does not automatically use your travel details to find the location on the map. Also, you cannot search the local maps on the app for activities or other locations. Instead, you have to visit the TripIt website for this feature. Another downside of signing up for the TripIt app is you get an email every time an item is added to your itinerary. Also, any of your friends on social media with a TripIt account can view some of the details of your itinerary. Both of these problems can be fixed with a simple change in your settings on the TripIt website, however. The Pro version of the TripIt provides some additional features, such as a Seat Tracker to find you the best seat on an airplane. All in all, the uniqueness of the service provided by TripIt makes it worth a try when planning your next trip.
Pros: Uses travel confirmation information to automatically create a master itinerary with all of your important travel details Maps feature lets you view a map of the local area and the airport terminal Pro version provides additional features, such as real time alerts to flight changes and a Seat Tracker to alert you when your ideal seat opens on an airline Neatly organizes all travel information with links for additional information Accessible whether you are online or offline
Cons: Cannot edit itineraries on the app Free version of the app contains ads Maps feature could be improved for a better user experience
