People call me The Community Guy
My favorite travel site, TripIt has expanded their support for business folks today. Very cool, since I’ve run into this problem regularly. Check out the updates, and don’t forget about our 10 Questions interview with Greg Brockway from TripIt.
TripIt for Business
TripIt has always been designed for both your vacation and business trips. But we’ve had so much interest from business road warriors and corporate travel arrangers that we’ve expanded our business support even further. TripIt now supports bookings from business travel sites like Expedia Corporate, Orbitz for Business, Travelocity Business, Cliqbook, GetThere, Travelport, Sabre VirtuallyThere, and the major corporate travel agencies. Check-out our new TripIt for Business page for more details.
Add Meetings and Activities to Itineraries
We’ve added a new option that makes it easier to create complete itineraries for your trips. Now you can quickly add a client meeting, a vacation activity, or concert details to your itinerary. And if you include an address, it’s easy to quickly add a Map or Driving Directions, too. Just visit MyTrips and click Add Plans to see the new options.
Travel Arrangers can now create trips for other travelers, as you no longer have to be the primary traveler to create a trip. We fixed an annoying bug that displayed maps that didn’t match the driving directions. And we continue to add support for new booking sites based on the travel confirmations that you send us. We’re now over 100 booking sites supported, including the ability to process attached PDF files and to follow links to sites that display your booking details online.
Very cool stuff, I can’t wait to put it to use!
