TripIt Launches New Amazon Alexa Skill
Now You Can Instantly Ask Tripit Questions like When You Should Leave for the Airport or What Time You Land
TripIt from Concur, the world’s highest-rated travel-organizing app, released a new TripIt skill for Amazon Alexa. TripIt users can now ask Alexa to instantly get details about an upcoming flight.
“Now when you’re home and preparing for your trip, you don’t have to pick up your phone or laptop to get the flight information you need,” said Jen Moyse, director of product at TripIt from Concur. “We want to help you make the most of your time as a busy traveler, wherever you are.”
With the new skill, TripIt users can ask Alexa about their flight summary, information about the weather, aircraft and much more. TripIt Pro customers will also be able to get real-time updates on their flight status.
How it works:
“Alexa, what’s my departure time?”

- Travelers can enable the TripIt skill and link to their TripIt account using the Alexa app. First-time Alexa users will need to download the Amazon Alexa app. Users can also enable the skill through the Alexa Skills Store on Amazon.com.
- The TripIt skill can be found in the “Skills & Games” section—just search for “TripIt” and select “Enable.”
- Users can then open the TripIt skill for Alexa by prompting “Alexa, open TripIt” and asking a question about their upcoming flight.
