TripChill, a leading mobile service providing automated travel assistance to both business and leisure travelers, has significantly expanded its support for alerting the traveler's friends about travel status and disruptions. TripChill travelers have always been able to notify their friends using email and text messaging. The traveler can now configure their TripChill account to update their Twitter status, which will publicly notify all of the traveler's Twitter followers about their travel information. The traveler can also send direct messages to selected Twitter friends. TripChill provides automatic travel updates for the following scenarios:
*Unplanned overnight stays
According to President Alex Shore, "Our traveling community can now leverage the power of Twitter by easily configuring their Twitter friends to receive TripChill travel notifications. Just like our friend notifications for email and text messaging, TripChill will send your travel status automatically through Twitter so that you can focus on making your connections and getting to your final destination. Travelers have the option of keeping specific Twitter friends informed, or they can broadcast the details of their itinerary as it progresses to their entire Twitter social network."
About the TripChill Mobile Travel Assistant:
TripChill is a free mobile travel service which 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 proactively alerts the traveler. It provides a situationally-aware mobile interface which 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. The TripChill Mobile Travel Assistant delivers smart notifications to the traveler which provides targeted, actionable information when issues arise, such as missed connection warnings, inbound aircraft status, and alternate flight suggestions. TripChill's advanced logic is constantly validating travel itineraries and prompting the user to repair conflicts, such as hotel reservations in two locations for the same night when a traveler is stranded. TripChill works on all mobile devices that have a web browser, and can also communicate on standard cell phones using text messaging. In addition, travelers can book hotel and car reservations over their mobile device at the last minute when traveling while the TripChill Mobile Travel Assistant keeps the traveler's friends and colleagues informed about their travel status as they progress through their itinerary.
