If you’ve been looking for a way to minimize flight hassles and simplify trip reporting, TripIt Pro is worth your time. Once you’ve experienced the power and convenience of its mobile app, you might not want to leave home without it. Working in tandem with Concur, TripIt Pro organizes all of your travel plans into a master itinerary. It also tracks flights and provides real-time notifications.
TripIt Pro is one of the world’s highest-rated mobile apps for travel. Concur users at Cornell have access to the Pro features of TripIt and can connect an existing basic TripIt account with the TripIt Pro subscription. Normally, Pro features would cost you $49 a year.
How TripIt works with Concur
When you start trip reports or reservations in Concur, they will show up automatically in TripIt and create an itinerary. Conversely, while you can’t book trips in TripIt, you can start your trip itinerary in TripIt and you can choose to sync your trips with Concur, which helps you create your expense report when you get back to the office. You can even use TripIt Pro for your personal travel. If you accidentally sync a personal trip with Concur, you can remove it by selecting “Hide Personal Trip” on Concur’s Upcoming Trips tab.
If you make reservations outside of Concur, forward confirmation emails to TripIt Pro at firstname.lastname@example.org using one of the addresses you’ve verified in Concur. TripIt can also automatically import travel plans from your email account and synchronize travel plans with your Outlook, Google, or iCal calendar.
TripIt Pro mobile app features
The chief reason you might want to use the TripIt Pro mobile app might be its powerful real-time alerts features. TripIt is designed to get you where you’re going with minimal hassle. It can tell you when to leave for your flight based on your location, traffic, and flight status. It informs you when gates or terminals change or when your flight is canceled or delayed, and it will help you find alternate flights. It will even tell you when better seats on your flight become available, based on your preferences.
