TripIt Chat This Week and More Chances to Win!


TripIt has hosted a few travel chats lately and everyone has had so much they’ve decided to run another travel chat! This Thursday, March 28 at 5pm Eastern/2pm Pacific TripIt will host a travel chat on Twitter all about healthy travel using the hashtag #TripItChat.

What’s TripIt? In my very first Favorite Apps post I included TripIt and it still remains one of my favorite apps on my phone. Simply put, TripIt organizes all of your travel information for you and generates complete itineraries easily accessed through your mobile device. You can input the information manually if you want, but it’s so much easier (and cooler) to have them do it for you. All you do is forward your confirmation emails to them and within seconds a complete itinerary is “automagically” generated and posted in your TripIt account. I am endlessly fascinated by technology and this app really amazes me.

The basic version is free but there’s also a Pro version that’s great for the frequent flyer. I upgraded in June and have been really impressed with the results.

Curious about trying it out for yourself? Well thanks to TripIt we can make that happen for a couple of you. This Thursday, March 28 at 5:00 PM Eastern/2:00 PM Pacific I am co-hosting a Twitter Chat all about healthy travel. Not only will the chat be a lot of fun, but we’re also giving away TripIt prize packages to two lucky people. Each package will include a one-year subscription to TripIt Pro and a prize pack full of other goodies.

    I love love love TripIt! Tried Tripcase and that messed up the very first itinerary I sent it (from United!) so I didn’t even get a chance to doubt my second year of TripIt Pro subscription!
