Using TripIt with Master Tour

Follow

TripIt is a service that allows you to manage travel and hotel reservations by simply forwarding your confirmation email messages to them.  Master Tour can then import reservations from your TripIt account into your tour.  If you already have a TripIt account, you need only grant access to Master Tour.  Otherwise you'll need to sign up for a free TripIt account first and then grant access to Master Tour.

 

Once you have a hotel and travel reservations entered in TripIt, you can import these into Master Tour using the desktop app.

In Master Tour, simply select the tour you wish to add your hotel and travel reservations to, then click File>Import>Import Itinerary from TripIt.

This will bring up a window asking you to authorize your TripIt account.

Clicking the "Authorize TripIt Access" button will connect you to a TripIt authorization page, where you will need to log into TripIt if you're not logged in already.

Once you've entered your email address and password for TripIt, go back to the Master Tour desktop application, and click the button saying you've authorized TripIt importing.

This will search TripIt for your trips, and show them in a preview window.

Simply select the travel items you wish to import, and click the Import Itinerary button.  This will import your TripIt travel items into Master Tour.

And that's it!

 

Troubleshooting

If you have upcoming flights or hotels in TripIt, but aren't seeing any in the TripIt Import in Master Tour, you're likely missing some info on tripit.com that is breaking the import into Master Tour. Sometimes TripIt doesn't parse everything exactly correctly from your confirmation emails into TripIt, so you'll want to check the following on tripit.com:

1. All of your upcoming flights have both departure and arrival places entered

2. All of your upcoming flights have both departure and arrival dates and times entered

3. All of your upcoming hotels have locations entered

4. All of your upcoming hotels have start/end dates entered

5. That you don't have any "Unfiled Items" that have any of the above issues

If you're still having troubles after ensuring that all of your start/end dates, times and places are entered into tripit.com, and you've used our TripIt Import in the past, it's possible you used a different TripIt account to import into Master Tour. If this is the case, you'll need to sync Master Tour, quit Master Tour, then reset your database in order to link up with a different TripIt account.

    is it possible to do the opposite of this and have tripit put in your travel details from master tour?

    Hey JD,

    No, not currently, we only import from TripIt. But we think that's the more useful integration, since you can send your confirmation emails to TripIt and have them automatically converted into a clean, readable format, which you can pull into Master Tour.

    Let me know if you have any more questions!

    Thanks,

    So if my TM has Tripit, and I get access to her Tripit account will it fill in connecting flight details as well as the overall trip? The example shows one flight Chicago to Columbus, what if the trip has connecting flights?

    Hey Gary,

    Yup! Connecting flights will import into the Connecting Flights section of a Travel Item, try it out!

    Thanks,

    Ok I have signed into Tripit but I still can't import any way I could get some support walking me through?

    I even merged the two accounts I had so it should read my trips.
