Not using these travel tools? Start now. They’ll save you time.
Hipmunk – Hipmunk makes finding flights fun. Their user interface is so intuitive and so unlike the mainstream clunky tools you’ll find. Once you start using it, you won’t be able to stop. They present options in a gantt-like format that is super intuitive. Quick Demo (2 min) | Formal Demo (11 min)
TripIT – Instead of providing an easy way to enter and track travel plans, TripIT makes it simple by eliminating the data entry and doing it for you. You can setup TripIT to monitor your email and import your travel plans automatically. They have a great app for mobile phones that ensures I always know when and where I’m going.
Yapta – Put in a flight you’re thinking of taking and Yapta will monitor the price for you. (Works for refunds too!)
That’s my best shot at giving my readers a Christmas gift of time savings. What other online travel tools do you use?
