Even seasoned travelers or travelers who have access to airport lounges usually don't want to arrive at the airport too early. But, with long security lines, slow airline employees and a host of other issues, you don't want to arrive too late and miss your flight or end up running desperately to get to the gate on time. TripIt, a travel planning and trip planning service, came up with the perfection solution that helps you get to the airport at the ideal time.
Recently, the popular app unveiled "Go Now", a brand new feature that alerts travelers - based on the location of the airport, current local traffic conditions and flight status - when to head out of the door. This new feature, unfortunately, is only available to TripIt Pro users. For those who are keen, TripIt Pro comes with a $49 annual fee. Currently, it only works for domestic flights within the United States.
The "Go Now" feature begins working a full 24 hours before a trip, and the app essentially becomes a mobile memo with a countdown clock starting two-hours before you should leave for the airport; 10 minutes before you need to leave, the app will send you a warning notification.
With the "Go Now" service, you will now have no excuse when it comes to getting to the gate on time no matter whether you are in an unfamiliar city or one that you are extremely familiar with.
If you don't have TripIt installed on your phone, you should seriously consider downloading it. With TripIt, you can access your entire itinerary from any device, anytime and anywhere. Once installed, you will find that the TripIt app is like a personal assistant who is always one step ahead.
