Travel arrangers

Modified on Tue, Apr 23 at 5:34 AM

TripIt can help you organize travel plans for your travelers.

Our travel arranger feature is meant to support arrangers/managers assisting a small number or group of travelers.  It is not designed to support travel agencies, TMCS, large corporate travel bookings or to share/monitor trips for large numbers of people from a single account.

Here's how:

  1. Travel planner creates and verifies a free TripIt account in their name. (Each traveler also needs their own account).
  2. If managing multiple travelers, uncheck 'Put new plans into trips' in the Travel preferences section of your profile's About you page or the Display Preferences page which will make it easier to file the right plans in the right trip.
  3. When it's time to arrange travel for a business traveler, the travel planner creates a new trip 'shell' in their TripIt account, entering just the trip name, primary location, start/end dates.
  4. After the trip is created, they can uncheck the 'I am a traveler on this trip' so they are a planner and not the traveler.
  5. Travel planner forwards all the business traveler's confirmation emails to and all travel information is automatically added to the new trip based on the start and end date.  (If managing multiple travelers, travel arranger moves trip from Unfiled Items folder into trip shell.)
  6. Travel planner customizes the TripIt itinerary as necessary, adding driving directions, client meetings, restaurant reservations, etc.
  7. Travel planner shares trip with business traveler, adding them as a Traveler.
