If you use TripIt or TripIt Pro to plan your travels, it’s now easier to access the various TripIt features. This latest round of updates includes Apple Watch complications and a reorganized TripIt Pro dashboard. These updates, plus the new TripIt website, continue to make it easier to plan and track your upcoming travel.

TripIt for Apple Watch

TripIt for Apple Watch users can enjoy new complications (updates) that lets you access your travel plans directly from your watch face. It’s also possible to launch the TripIt app directly from your watch face. TripIt Pro users can enjoy real-time flight alerts, including delays and gate changes, all on the watch face.

Depending on the watch face setting, pre-flight notifications can show your departure time, departure airport, flight number, and gate number. Pro users can receive color-coded flight notifications to indicate on-time or delayed status.

Travelers can also track their in-flight progress on the watch face to see the remaining flight time and arrival airport information.

Pro Tip: Use your travel rewards or business credit card to get even more out of your travels

You can activate these new complications in Customize mode to edit your watch face settings.

TripIt Pro Dashboard

TripIt Pro users will enjoy the newly organize Pro hub in the mobile app. The Pro hub is divided into different sections for quick navigation:

  • Planning and Research. International travel tools, security wait times and airport maps
  • Notifications and Alerts. Trip delays, fare price changes, and preferred seat availability
  • About Me. Loyalty point tracker, ability to share travel plans with friends and family
  • Partner Perks. Discounted travel programs including a 4-month CLEAR membership trial

These tools help you plan when to arrive at the airport and where you need to head once you are in the terminal.

Summary

TripIt isn’t rolling out any brand new features to the basic or pro platforms this time. However, the user experience is better for Apple Watch users and for TripIt Pro members using the mobile app.
