Avis.com Now Uses TripIt's Open API Platform

TripIt, a mobile trip organizer from Concur, introduced new itinerary-powered programs such as personalized reservations in fewer clicks on Avis.com, joining 1,200 developers now using TripIt’s open API platform, according to a TripIt Nov. 16 press release.

For travelers booking a rental car who connect their TripIt account with Avis.com, itineraries auto-populate new reservations and help Avis anticipate changes in travelers’ schedules. TripIt automatically creates one simple, smart itinerary to access on a smartphone, calendar, or anywhere online.

TripIt Pro keeps travelers in the know regarding flight status, alternate flights, and more; tracks all frequent traveler points in one place; and monitors eligible flights for fare refunds.

In another program, by sharing trip itineraries automatically on FlyMuch.com, travelers can get recommendations from friends and social networking connections, and build an online travel profile.

Travelers can also get destination-based dining deals from FoodieBytes. Travelers can get personalized restaurant deals in the cities they’re traveling to by connecting their TripIt account with Foodiebytes.com.

Since 2009, TripIt’s open platform has included hundreds of apps and services that assist travelers before, during and after the journey; some of which include USA Today Auto Pilot, GateGuru and MemoLane. To see more examples, go to http://www.tripit.com/uhp/tools .
