5 Health and Safety Tools from TripIt for Your Travel Kit

From disparate bookings to flight delays, you already had enough to worry about when you traveled—and that was before COVID-19. When you hit the road again, TripIt from Concur has new tools to help you navigate the "new normal" of travel. With your health and safety in mind, we’ve created new resources—and enhanced some of the most-trusted features—so you’re better prepared for each step of your journey.

 

Before you go

TripIt Traveler Resource Center: As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, global travel guidelines are constantly changing, making it hard to know what to expect. We want to help you stay as informed as possible. From public health and safety advisories to cancellation policies and new travel guidelines, the TripIt Traveller Resource Center makes it easy to find the latest travel advisories, restrictions, and guidelines, alongside other helpful resources, so you have the information you need to make the best decision for your next trip.  

Where to find it: The TripIt Traveller Resource Center is available to all travellers via the TripIt website and mobile web. 

 

Neighborhood Safety Scores: TripIt’s Neighbourhood Safety Scores help travelers learn about the safety of the neighbourhood they’re visiting, including a Health and Medical score that factors in COVID-19 data.  

Travellers can access hyper-local safety ratings along any point within the TripIt itinerary for more than 65,000 cities and neighbourhoods for both daytime and nighttime. This helps users visualize and gain an understanding of current safety conditions by location.

Where to find it: Neighbourhood Safety Scores are available for each location with an address on a user's TripIt itinerary.

 

Point Tracker: Airlines, car rentals, hotels, credit cards: no matter where the points come from, Point Tracker in TripIt Pro stores all account numbers, balances, and expiration dates in one place. Point Tracker has been recently redesigned with an improved view of point balances and history to help users manage their reward programs. We’ve also made it easier to see when an account needs attention. For iOS users, we also added support for travel providers’ regional programmes to ensure the most accurate information.

When you’re ready to travel again, Point Tracker’s enhanced features can help make the best decision about how to get where you’re going. 

Where to find it: Point Tracker can be found under the Pro tab in the TripIt app.

 

While you’re on the go

Nearby Places: Nearby Places—the TripIt feature that makes it easy to find places close to where you’re staying—now shows the locations of the nearest medical facilities, including hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies. 

Should you need medical help while travelling, TripIt’s Nearby Places will provide the medical facility’s contact details, hours, and more. TripIt will also show an interactive map with each option tagged so users can see where it is in relation to your accommodations. Easily find directions or tap the plus (+) sign to save it in TripIt to visit later. 

Where to find it: Users can access Nearby Places in the lodging details screen of the TripIt app. To get there, tap on your trip, and then tap on where you’re staying. There you will find Nearby Places. Select the type of place you’re looking for, and TripIt will find what’s close by. 

 

Siri Shortcuts: Touchless technology can help minimise your contact with surfaces as you travel. With TripIt's newly enhanced Travel Plans shortcut, Siri will respond with the most relevant details at any point in an itinerary—whether that's a flight, hotel, road trip pit-stop, or other plans.

The TripIt Travel Plans shortcut for Siri automatically adjusts to the current part of a trip, giving you the information you need most, in that moment. 

Where to find it: By saying “Hey Siri, Travel Plans,” iOS users can receive an update on what’s next in their itinerary.


From planning to landing—and every touchpoint in between—TripIt can help you plan and prepare for travelling in our new normal.
