    I love it how it pulls information out of your reservation emails and then creates trips, plus offline download makes it an amazing tour guide when you don't have data roaming

    Best thing Skyscanner brought to travel was 'Flexible? Search Everywhere' I had wanted this feature forever and nobody did it: search for flights based on price/don't mind where you go. Many of my holidays have been decided this way! And they are Scottish, which is great.

      Yeah, this is very cool. I used to do something like this by searching with a large radius from Matrix by ITA Software (which powers the backend of many flight search engines). Very, very cool to get it in a few clicks. Very cool too.

      Priced everything! I can know the budget in seconds. Gave luggage/carryon info on the same page. Itinerary illustrated making it easy for me to visualise. Can book INSTANTLY, locking all flights in at once! And, BEST of all, it chose locations I would not have chosen (from lack of personal experience) thus opening my mind and allowing for random dreaming and possibility. Potential Indiana Jones adventure thing. Very cool.

    Easy and simple. It makes it easier to plan your trip, like which Museums, Restaurants or Theaters to see. Also there is a great team working behind the scenes to make the Zenkit even better everyday.

    I like using Google Flights to explore cheap air travel options if I haven't decided on a particular destination, and to explore the cheapest day to fly to a destination on a particular month with the calendar functionality. I find it excels at those two things, plus all the usual price monitoring features that we've come to expect of ticket sites. I also like that it's a much more user-friendly version of the original ITA Matrix system, aka "the magic cheap flights site no one has ever heard of", which now powers both Kayak and Google Flights search!

    Google Flights is amazing, its like ITA Matrix with speed, even if I don't book it directly through them most of the time I am often checking different variations of flights from it because it is blazing fast.

      Destigogo could be a powerful tool to find travels for a cheap price. But unfortunaly, the website is full of bugs, like EVERYWHERE. That's horrible.

      - The header with the logo is too large, so it's impossible to use the buttons ... I needed to delete the code for the header by inspecting the elements (right click)

      - Can't see the results for the changed date. When I change the date, it finds many destinations but i can't close the window ... REALLY ???

      - Same thing for the duration of the travel. There are results, but I can't see them because of the window ...

      -

      So please, if you care about Destigogo do something about those bugs !! Your tool is totally useless at this moment because of them.

    Tripit

    All your travel plans, in one place

    Easy to forward confirmation emails and knows to combine everything into one trip.
    CommentsShare
    I love TripIt! It's a great travel itinerary app. I've used it for a large number of my travels, and it's done me well. It's especially good when planning trips with multiple people. And if you get the Tripit Pro (30-day free trial should last you through whatever travel plans you have), you can receive live updates and more. And if you're a 'traveler' on a trip that is created by someone who has TripIt Pro, you also get the benefits of Pro. The live flight updates have truly saved my ass multiple times. And as you travel, it gives you a nice overview of how much you've traveled.

    • Overall this is the best tool I've found for keeping track of your final travel plans. Any booking emails you get, just forward them to Tripit and it's processed and added to the plan almost instantly. You can also set up alternate emails if you have different addresses or multiple planners. iCal integration is really nice. Can be frustrating in a few ways: no calendar view for planning before you book, you can't attach a PDF receipt to your plans, the UI is old and awkward (but the mobile app is a bit better). However overall it does the basics better than anyone else so it's what I use every time.
