3. Trip It
Less of a travel community and more a travel repair, Trip It is perfect for the group nut in all of us. Just enter your flight, hotel stays and destinations and let trip it create an optimized travel journey for you in seconds. Never miss another plane or train again.
For those who truly want it all, improve to the pro version and Trip It will mechanically alert you if there are change or delays in your travels plans. That means less time at the airfield, and more time at the beach.
Create a map with the dates and place of your travels; share it with the Doppler community, check out other’s maps, then meet up with those whose travel plans overlie with your own. If you’d like to keep your location a covert from some (mom, dad, a raging x), don’t worry, you can control who can and can’t see where you are.
Along the way you’ll get riches of location specific travels in order, so you’ll always know where to stay, where to eat, and what to do. Taking the thinking out of roving, we like that.
