TripIt, the travel startup that consolidates all of your travel information into a single itinerary, has raised $7 million in a third round of funding.
The idea behind San Francisco-based TripIt is to give travelers all the information they need for their trip in one place — their flight itinerary, hotel, maps, weather information, and more. The company has also introduced a groups feature so that you can collaborate with colleagues on travel plans, and a pro service with real-time alerts.
TripIt has also taken steps to integrate with other services and applications, like introducing an application for professional networking site LinkedIn, and allowing other companies to build applications on top of TripIt data and services. (The company shares in the revenue from those apps.)
