TripIt launches new tablet-inspired maps on

TripIt, the leading mobile trip organiser from Concur, announced a new way to access trip maps and get directions on, making it easy for travellers to navigate every part of their journey – from the airport to the hotel and beyond.

Now, when travelers log onto, they’ll have the option to view their itinerary alongside an interactive map, or select the traditional detailed view. By clicking on their hotel, airport, or other itinerary item on the map, they can get directions created instantly.

TripIt originally introduced a map-centric design on TripIt for iPad, giving travelers a way to interact with their trips geographically for the first time.

“After looking at trips through the lens of smartphone and tablet apps for a couple of years now, it’s changing the way we present information that travelers care about most,” said Gregg Brockway, Executive Vice President and General Manager of TripIt. “We’re using maps to bring the elegant and helpful simplicity of mobile back to the web where it all began.”

Interactive maps join other helpful travel planning tools that TripIt users will only find on the web at, including:
– Total trip cost: see how much was spent on air, car and hotel reservations at-a-glance
– Weather: itineraries automatically include historical averages for each day of the trip
– Calendar sync: subscribe to a calendar feed of all trip plans or download one trip’s calendar file
– Group trip planning: add travelers to an itinerary with the ability to add or edit trip plans
– Social networks: share trip plans automatically on Facebook, LinkedIn, Salesforce Chatter and Yammer
– TripIt Groups: access a company calendar to see when and where colleagues are traveling.
