TripIt – Another Free Itinerary Service For BlackBerry

Tripitpromo_mobileI know many readers who are using WorldMate Live to keep track of their itineraries from their BlackBerry. Well now there is an alternative. It does not seem to be as feature full as WorldMate but it has quite a few features that WorldMate does not have.

TripIt brings info from Google, Eventful, Flickr, Wikipedia, NOAA, and SeatGuru to flesh out your itinerary with more useful information. There is no BlackBerry application like WorldMate but you can access the information from the browser by going to

To try out TripIt go to If you do let me know how it compares to WorldMate Live. I don’t have any itineraries to try it out on.

  1. Also checkout This is a free travel service that I use to organize my itineraries and get advanced monitoring when on the road. The service asks you to book a hotel or car when needed. It has a good mobile interface over the BlackBerry browser.

  2. I recently discovered TripIt and tried it out. Similar to Worldmate Live, you forward your trip confirmation emails and they extract the information and set up itineraries for you. They also offer a number of “social networking” tools to share trips with friends, check who’s traveling nearby, etc., but I did not bother with that (yet).

    So I sent a number of past and current trip confirmation emails from a variety of sources – my corporate travel agency, one from a conference hotel booking agency, one directly from an airline (United), and a couple of hotel ones, including a change in my reservation. TripIt created the itineraries withh 100% accuracy. I’m sold!

    So then for comparison, I registered myself for Woldmate Live and sent the exact same emails. They were no where near as accurate as TripIt – I had to make a number of edits and corrections. TripIt figured out a default name for the itinerary based on where I was traveling to, whereas Worldmate did it based on my home city (the originating airport), so everything had the same name – useless.

    The only complaint I have about TripIt is the lack of a Blackberry application. They do have one for the iPhone, via Flight Tracker, so I’m hoping the Blackberry will be coming. However, the mobile website is fairly decent.

    After all this, I deleted my Worldmate Live account and I’m going to proceed with TripIt. And for those who doubt all that is good with this review, no, I am not affiliated in any way with TripIt, nor are any of my family or friends.
