Tripit Travel Planning Tutorial for your Next Family Vacation
Enter your personal information.
Add your address book. (Optional.)
And finally get started by adding your first trip.
Step 2: Forward Your Plans to TripIt
Once your account is setup, the easiest way to input a trip is to just forward your confirmation emails to TripIt. It’ll then automatically feed the data into their system and create an easy to read and share format.
To do this, find your confirmation email and hit forward.
Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once TripIt receives the email, all you need to do is find the trip in the “Trips” tab and you’ll have all your flight details.
You can even view a local map or see the weather on the same page.
Step 3: Using the Mobile Version
There are two ways to use TripIt on a mobile device. The first is to download an app, the second is to use the mobile site. Let’s take a look at both.
To download the app, just do a search in either the Apple or Android app store.
Download and open the app. Sign in to your account.
Your available trips will be displayed. Click on the trip you want to view.
All the details for your trip will then be displayed.
Using the mobile website version is a very similar process. Direct your mobile phone’s browser to http://m.tripit.com.
You’ll see a login page. Type in your email and password.
Select the specific trip.
It’s that simple! You’ve now learned to use both the web version and the mobile versions of TripIt. TripIt allows you to consolidate all your travel plans in one easy-to-access place. It gives you additional tools like maps and weather reports and just makes traveling simpler. Best of all, it’s free.
