Any recommendations for a iphone travel apps that allow you to consolidate travel itineraries, lodging info and tickets? Any such apps that can also be assessed off-line. Suggestions would be greatly appreciate.

Thanks in advance, Mary

Tripit, for sure. I do have the Pro version but actually you can get along fine without it. It periodically searches your emails for hotel and other booking confirmations and automatically and correctly enters the details into your itinerary. Of course, you can control this 'search' feature in the settings, if you want. Tripit organizes and keeps dates, times, confirmation numbers, directions, maps, weather, notes, etc. You can access your itinerary and its information anytime, on any device even if you are offline. I have used it for years and really appreciate the organizational features.

I took the RS Technology free class last year, and TripIt was mentioned in the class as the app the teacher liked. He said the free version of it was fine. (I do see advantages of the Pro version if you travel a lot for work, etc.). I didn’t give the app permission to see my email; I just forward my hotel, etc. reservations to the app - high marks on ease of use! It automatically loads the address, etc.

I’m a retired engineer and very organized, so I thought it wouldn’t be as much help, but I used it for my 3-week trip last year to Italy and have been using it since. It’s so easy to share an itinerary with our adult kids. I use it now to store possible activity ideas for each day when I’m planning a trip or to have recommended restaurants (it loads the addresses) available.

We had a free trial with the Pro version and it really saved us. We were notified of a flight cancellation , after an 8 hour delay due to weather, five minutes before the airline’s gate agent announced it. Using Booking.com we were able to get one of the last rooms at the airport that night.
I love having all the documentation for every reservation at our fingertips with TripIt.

Tripit and I have the free version. I have been using it for years and I probably rely on it too much.

I really like TripIt. It keeps all my transport, accommodations, tours, and tickets organized.

Another vote for Tripit -- my husband as a "traveler" always has the most updated information in one place. And it points out any double-bookings or missed nights while there's still time to fix them.

Thanks to everyone who replied. I downloaded the "free" tripit and started using it for our upcoming trip to Scandinavia. A bit of a learning curve for me, but I'm making good progress.

I received a nice email offer from TripIt one too many times to say “no” to their reduced price to try their Pro version for a year. I’m already seeing some nice features with the Pro version- they will notify you of available better seats on the plane, each day has the local weather forecast, quick locations for handy grocery store, etc.

I’ll report back after we take a trip soon and can actually try out additional features - hopefully NOT the rebooking flights option!
