Automatically import booked trip itineraries to Outlook, iCal, iPhone, Google Calendars

Traxo travel Calendar feed for iPhone Outlook iCal Google

We’ve all asked the same question. Everyone knows you need to stay organized in today’s busy, busy world. How to do it? That’s the million dollar question.

On top of meetings, appointments, chores, and everything else organized in your calendar, keeping track of your trips can be a time-consuming, if unpleasant task.

After a while, things turn into a unappealing mess of itineraries, trip confirmations, confirmation numbers, rescheduled dates, and email after email after email. And it’s your job to separate the few useful emails from the ones touting your favorite carrier’s new fall getaways to the Caribbean.

And in the end, you’re still always doing the same search of your email inbox twelve hours before your flight to confirm flight times and grab that flight confirmation number that you failed to jot down the first time.

So take a deep breath. Relax. We have a solution for you. And if you already have a Traxo account, it will take less than a minute of your time.

You can now automatically keep your Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, iPhone calendar, Lotus Notes, or iCal calendars up to date by subscribing to the iCal feed by clicking the ‘Add to Calendar’ link next to any of your upcoming trips.

Just paste the feed URL into the subscription window of the calendar program of choice–OSX’s iCal and Google Calendar being my two personal favorites—and let Traxo do the rest.

Your itinerary information, including flight number, departure and arrival times, airport info, and confirmation numbers are displayed right on your calendar. It’s such a simple, yet brilliant tool.

You no longer have to go searching through your email inbox in a desperate search for this information before your flight. Or if you’re already organizationally inclined, you no longer have to enter your flight information manually every time you book a new trip.

Just keep in mind that only trips made on accounts linked to Traxo will be displayed and updated automatically using the iCal feed, so in order to get all of your trips organized, be sure to take a minute and link all the travel accounts that you regularly use to book your travels to your Traxo account using the “Connect New Site” link on your home page.

Besides additional perks, such as increasing your Travel Score, and sharing with friends over Facebook or Twitter, linking your accounts to Traxo is the best way to keep all your trip and travel account information organized, in one place. We are all busy enough already, even without the hassle of searching for and saving email after email.

It’s all done automatically. And the best part is that your travel info is always with you, easily accessible on your smartphone or computer, at home or on the road.
