Top Tips for Travel
Here at Go Native, we realise the stresses that come from frequent travelling, be it finding suitable accommodation, organising a hectic family holiday on the Costa del Sol or hiking in the Andes. Unless you have the luxury of a PA to organise your life, it is almost impossible to keep on track of all the various flight details, Serviced Apartment bookings, transfers you have arranged – the list could go on and on.
Tripit.com is a website which helps travellers (be they business or leisure) to organise their trip, work out where they are, how they are getting there, who they are going with, what time their flights are or even how to post a link to the trip on a blog when they are exclaiming to the world how fantastic their trip has been.
After Go Native was recently introduced to the website, we have spent time looking over the details, and have come to the conclusion that it is a very useful tool for anyone travelling on both business and leisure.
Our top five things about TripIt:
- The multitude of useful apps. Although many of the apps available on the website have been developed by external developers, they work intricately with the website to provide a concise and accurate device to make your journey as easy as possible.
- The simplicity. The majority of travellers these days have access to either a laptop or smartphone with which they can access the internet from almost anywhere on the planet. Having all of the travel data in one place means that you will not be stuck at the airport frantically rifling through your bags in order to find that post-it on which your flight number was jotted.
- Automatic Itinerary. If you simply email your confirmation emails to a TripIt email address your itinerary will be automatically updated, saving you the hassle of having to input everything yourself. Also the ability to ‘trip clip’ allowing you to add information from any website to the itinerary for your trip comes in very useful when you find important information about your trip, but don’t want to have to carrying around excessive printouts.
- The ability to share you travel plans. Be it on Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin, you can always make sure that everybody knows where you are, where you have been and where you will be going.
- The ‘Blog badge’. When you get back this gives you the chance to link your trip to any blog that you may be writing, about your travels. This would help with everything from updates about meetings to gloating online about where you have been.
