TripIt Now Helps You Plan Travel with Vaccination Information

Written by Charlie

TripIt is more relevant than ever for the traveler with the ever-changing world of vaccination requirements and more in this covid-era.

TripIt has not let the slowdown in travel over the last 18 months slow them down in adapting to the new world of travel that we are in now. Their latest enhancements help you to know what vaccination status destinations require as well as rates and more. Check it out!

TripIt Now Shows Vaccination Information

If there is one sure thing about international travel right now, it is that what may work for entrance to a country today may not be the same one week from now. For a traveler, that can be a lot to keep up with. Fortunately, TripIt has their finger on the pulse of that information and here is how that helps you now.

Here is what all TripIt users can view now in their TripIt app (iOS for now, Android update coming):

  • Vaccination rates
  • Vaccination requirements
  • Approved vaccines
  • Exemptions from quarantine, testing, or other entry requirements for vaccinated travelers
  • Accepted forms of certification

This information is available to all TripIt users as part of a trip plan. For TripIt Pro users, this information can be searched for in each country without having it be part of a trip plan.

TripIt will also show you what the airlines offer in terms of the apps that they recommend for your upcoming travel and whether you can schedule a Covid-19 test through the airline (some airlines offer this and even offer a discount on tests that may cost more).
