Two Useful Services for Travelers: Tripit and PageOnce

Do you travel a lot?  Spend more than a few weeks away from home in hotels and motels?  If you do, you probably already understand the importance of good logistics when traveling.

Knowing the latest on your plane status, your hotel reservation, and your rental car normally involves a pile of paper, or searching through the phone for confirmation emails.

Add to this the travelers need for current information on their own personal and financial accounts, and you basically have a road warrior that is extremely data-hungry.  But the data-hunger is normal, all we're talking about here is the ability to:

  • Organize all trips by destination and collect your airfare, hotel, rental car and other information together
  • Pin all of your reservation information to your calendar
  • Check on your personal financial accounts, traveler points accounts, and other accounts
do all of this from your mobile phone (blackberry, iphone, etc)

First, check out PageOnce:

Free to try, $10 yearly service.

Then, check out TripIt:

Airfare, Hotel, Rental Car, and other information...just email it to TripIt

To sync TripIt with your Google Calendar (and your Outlook, and your Blackberry), add the Tripit Calendar RSS Feed to your Google Calendar.  Instructions here:

Your new road warrior now has all of his/her personal/financial/travel information at their finger tips!  All their travel and banking information available on their phone, and on their calendar.  Share your trips with your colleagues.  Check your credit card accounts from the road.  View your hotel reservations easily for multiple trips.  Check your online shopping accounts from your phone...and much more!!
