Travel tips from techie travelers

with one comment

Stephanie Rosenbloom has an interesting report today in the NY Times on how techie frequent travelers organize themselves for travel. Worth reading if you travel much at all. To take just one example from the story:

Oh, the monotony of cutting and pasting details from confirmation e-mails — plane tickets, hotel reservations, car rentals — into your online calendar. So what do the experts do? They turn to TripIt, a Web site and free app that allows users simply to forward those e-mails toplans@tripit.com and — bang! — everything is instantly organized into a digital itinerary that can be synced with calendars and shared with friends and family. (There is also an option to automatically import the e-mails from an in-box.) The itinerary, organized chronologically from flight to hotel and everything in between, includes all the essentials: addresses, reservation numbers, weather forecasts (notes can be added, too). When your flight lands, pull up your itinerary on your smartphone and tap “directions,” and maps, along with step-by-step instructions on how to get from A to B, will appear. No need to test your phone battery and your patience with GPS.
