SAN FRANCISCO, March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TripIt® from Concur®, the world's highest-rated travel-organizing app, today announced Go Now, a new feature available to TripIt Pro users. The new feature helps travelers make the most of their day by suggesting the best time to leave for the airport based on their current location, flight status and local traffic conditions.
"Even for the most seasoned travelers, finding the right time to leave for the airport can be tricky, especially in an unfamiliar city," said Jen Moyse, director of product at TripIt from Concur. "Leave too late, and you end up scrambling to catch your flight. Leave too early, and you're stuck in the airport for longer than you need to be. Add in a flight delay or cancellation, and suddenly your day is ruined. With Go Now, we'll take all of that into consideration so you don't have to."
How it works
TripIt's new Go Now feature helps TripIt Pro users plan their next trip to the airport. It suggests the best time to leave for the airport based on a traveler's current location, flight status and local traffic conditions—and then reminds the traveler when it's time to leave for a flight. The new feature also includes a countdown clock, allowing travelers to see how long they have until they need to head to the airport.
The Go Now feature becomes available within the TripIt mobile app a day before any U.S. domestic flight. After activating the feature, TripIt Pro users will be able to see when they need to leave for each of their upcoming flights.
Go Now is available on the TripIt iOS and Android apps. While TripIt organizes travel plans in one place for free, a subscription to TripIt Pro ($49/year) is required to access the new feature. To learn more about how TripIt Pro can help you stay one step ahead, visit www.TripIt.com/pro.
