TripIt announced a new feature for TripIt Pro users. The app will now help you ensure that you make it to the airport on time with Go Now, a new feature that suggests the best time to leave for the airport.
“Even for the most seasoned travelers, finding the right time to leave for the airport can be tricky, especially in an unfamiliar city,” said Jen Moyse, director of product at TripIt from Concur. “Leave too late, and you end up scrambling to catch your flight. Leave too early, and you’re stuck in the airport for longer than you need to be. Add in a flight delay or cancellation, and suddenly your day is ruined. With Go Now, we’ll take all of that into consideration, so you don’t have to.”

Go Now uses your current location, flight status and local traffic conditions to figure out when travelers will need to be at the airport and then alerts them when it is time to depart.
The feature becomes available within the TripIt mobile app the day before any U.S. domestic flight.
This new feature is in addition to other features that include managing expenses and travel program rewards that are available to TripIt Pro users for an annual fee of $49.
