The TripChill Mobile Travel Assistant (tripchill.com) now supports many new travel item types in addition to the existing support for air, car and hotel. These new types include rail, cruise, shuttles, meetings, restaurant reservations, bus transportation, and more. TripChill users can even add their own travel types.
This enhancement to the popular mobile travel service allows for the addition of custom fields to include important itinerary information such as reservation numbers, ticket prices, contact information, and any other details that road warriors want accessible from their mobile device while traveling.
According to President Alex Shore, "In addition to TripChill's real-time flight tracking and automated itinerary monitoring services, the mobile travel service now allows travelers and their office administrators to track many new travel types to itineraries from the TripChill website or the iPhone web interface. Travelers can now organize, view and share their complete travel schedule, including trip details that happen before a flight departure and during the stay at a destination. For example, travelers can include information about their limo reservation and ground shuttle before their originating flight, and they can add meeting, restaurant, and entertainment details that take place during their trip."
TripChill is a mobile travel assistant that delivers a personalized experience with targeted information and the ability to quickly take action to resolve problems. TripChill begins monitoring travel itineraries before a trip even starts. The service detects changes in flight and hotel information and alerts the traveler. It provides a situationally-aware mobile interface that tells the traveler the current status of their next flight and exposes mobile access to itinerary details such as phone numbers, confirmation numbers, driving directions, and weather. TripChill delivers smart notifications to the traveler that provide targeted, actionable information when issues arise, such as missed connection warnings, inbound aircraft status, and alternate flight suggestions. The service has advanced logic that is constantly validating travel itineraries and prompting the user to repair conflicts, such as hotel reservations in two locations for the same night due to a traveler being stranded. TripChill works on all mobile devices that have a web browser, and can also communicate on standard cell phones using text messaging. Travelers can book hotel and car reservations over their mobile device at the last minute when traveling. TripChill keeps the traveler's friends and colleagues informed about their travel status as they progress through their itinerary.
