I have trip it. Never got into it I have so many travel apps that maybe that's why (I'm a touch obsessed with travel apps )

I spent ages filling it out before our trip but then, in the end, I preferred to type up my own itinerary as that was what I was used to reading

That was me I had a good play with it, put in info, then put the whole thing in the "too hard basket"

I really like it so far. What I love is looking at it on my iphone wherever I am and it saying you have xxx days until your next trip.

I love how I put in the cruise details and it says what ports we are going what days and the time in each port etc. Plus flight details....

I really liked TripIt and used it on my last trip cause I had complicated the trip with too many bookings. It was great to have on the phone and carry around with me.
But that's where I came undone. It doesn't accept auto-update on everything and I did lose track of a couple of bookings which changed and I hadn't kept track of which I had updated and which I hadn't.
the biggest problem was realising that my flight was different from what I was walking around with in TripIt
So I then had the lack of confidence thing happening and had to double check everything.
However for 12 months I too was in love with it - and for the vast bulk of my trip I enjoyed using it.

I'm a fellow lover of tripit. Its handy for family members as well. You can share itineraries so they know where you are staying at various stages of your trip.

I've been using it for over a year now, and I love it. It's fantastic for business trips.

I found it invaluable while we were away, I had all my character meal reservations on it (as well as everything else) which meant I had everything I needed in my hot little hand (literally - on my iphone) to ring and make changes as needed. Which I did a lot, lol.

Just thought I'd revive Karen's Tripit post .

I've used it for several trips but it's been getting better every year and I noticed that now, if you have an iPhone or iPad ( or Mac) you can link your Tripit trip to your iCloud calendar. Now, every time I add a new booking it automatically shows up on my phone and iPad calendar. Love it!

Just thought I'd bring that up for any other Apple-heads out there
