TripIt brings first all-in-one travel organiser to Google Glass

May 20, 2014 Technology No Comments Email Email

TripIt from Concur, the world’s highest-rated travel organising app with more than 10 million users, today ushered in a new way for travellers to access all their travel plans on Glass and get timely trip information at eye level when faced with gate changes, flight delays and cancellations. TripIt was selected to bring its all-in-one travel organiser to Glass along with an exclusive group of travel partners. 

A prominent addition to TripIt’s suite of native apps, Glassware makes it even easier for travellers to engage with the world around them. TripIt users now have the option to keep their smartphone tucked away, while all the information needed to make their journey as smooth as possible is in sight. Flight details are displayed conveniently upon arrival at the airport, followed by a car rental, hotel, and any other travel reservations previously forwarded to plans@tripit.com.   

For TripIt Pro users, TripIt Glassware presents real-time flight status notifications at the right moment throughout the trip, including: check-in reminders, gate changes, flight delays, and more. In one tap, a traveler can view alternate flights to find a faster way home or squeeze in a few extra hours in a favourite destination. 

“TripIt and Google share a common goal to organise information and create technology to make people’s lives better,” said Rich Adams, Head of Mobile for TripIt. “With TripIt, we’re always thinking about how travelling should work in pursuit of ‘The Perfect Trip.’ Imagine being able to simultaneously enjoy a cup of coffee, carry your luggage through the airport and stay informed of changes. All your flight status updates are presented in plain view, freeing up your hands and making it easier to stay engaged with the world around you.” 

TripIt Glassware is now available for download in Google Play. While TripIt organises travel plans in one place for free, a subscription to TripIt Pro is required for flight status alerts and notifications ($49/year). A free 30-day trial of TripIt Pro is available at http://tripit.com/pro.
