Web site helps track trip plans

By ANICK JESDANUN, AP Internet Writer

Planning a trip can be as much of a pain as getting stuck on a delayed flight.

A new Web site called TripIt came to the rescue as I was planning three out-of-town weekends in a row this fall.

Despite a few minor flaws with the free service, TripIt is a wonderful, easy-to-use product that's bound to come in handy for the holiday trips ahead — whether you're visiting family in a major city or going hiking off the beaten path.

To get started, all you need to do is forward all the e-mail receipts from airlines, hotels and car-rental companies. Then you could easily add driving directions and other useful notes.

Because I was using an e-mail account TripIt didn't recognize, the service automatically generated a TripIt account and password for me the first time. That's a wonderful touch, though I later wished it didn't automatically create a second account for me because I was using a second e-mail address. I had to manually merge the two, which wasn't too difficult.
