GearDiaryGo Tip: Don’t Travel Without TripIt


We’ve mentioned this numerous times in the past but it’s worth reiterating, TripIt is probably one of the best travel companions you can have. The service and accompanying smartphone and tablet applications make it easy to arrange your trip, track your plans, and get notified when there are changes. And if you are traveling with a group that is coming from various locations you can link one itinerary with another so you can see where they are and what their plans will be. Ever since Judie introduced me to it two years ago I’ve been a huge fan. In fact, I don’t know anyone who has tried it hasn’t stayed with the service. And getting a pro account for under $50 is inexpensive and a really excellent way to add functionality.

If you plan on doing any traveling in the next few months it’s worth getting an account now. You can check it out here.

His passion for technology and gadgets never left him. Dan is married to Raina Goldberg who is also an avid user of Apple products. They live in New Jersey with their golden doodle Nava.
