Tripsy 2.1 — Flights with multiple segments, more categories, and flexibility on storing documents

We recently released our biggest update ever, and along the next year, we will be releasing complementary updates. You can follow us on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS of our blog to know everything.

Flight with multiple segments

When searching a flight that has multiple segments now (or multiple legs if you want), you will be able to choose what routes you want to include in your trip.

More categories

We added three new categories that we thought could be super useful during a trip planner: meeting, event, and of course, bar & party 🍸.

Drag & Drop Documents on iPadOS

Oh yeah. You can drag any document into your trip, or activities on iPadOS now. From any app, any type of document. 😎

Documents via Share Extension

Our share extension also supports sending documents to the trip or to a specific activity, as well. You can do that from any app or document on your iPhone or iPad. We have a small guide on how to use our share extension here.

That's all for today!

If you liked this update, please help us leaving us a review in the App Store. If you have any feedback, suggestions or just want to talk to us, come talk to us at our support channel, and we will be happy to talk to you!

How to organize your suitcase in an easy way

You have chosen the destination, the hotel, etc. Now, it's time to organize your bag, check the items that are necessary and what clothes to take with you. For someones, this be a little difficult, but some steps can help you:

1. Choose the right suitcase

Take into account how many days and where you are going to travel. If you will stay a week, a small bag is enough. 

If you are going to visit different destinations and change hotels all the time, a rolling suitcase is not the best option.

2. Choose the right clothes

Is it a business trip? A weekend trip? Are you going to the beach? How's the weather there? 

They're simple questions, but they can be useful while you're packing by avoiding taking unnecessary clothes.

3. Prefer neutral colors

Choose neutral colors so you can match many pieces of clothing. White or black clothes are always a good choice, on the other hand, you can waste time choosing the best match for printed clothes.

4. Take fabrics that don't wrinkle

Don't waste your time taking a dress that you will have to iron when arriving at your destination. Be practical.  Wool, linen, polyester, cashmere, microfibers and cotton are nice options of fabrics to pack.

5. Avoid new shoes

I know, you are excited to use the incredible new pair of shoes which you've bought specially for that trip. I'm sorry, that's not a good idea. As you are not used to them, you don't know if they are comfortable enough or even if they can hurt you while walking.

6. Keep all cables, charges and electronics in a case

Today, we carry many electronics with us, so imagine you look for them in the middle of your clothes, it's not going to be nice. Being organized is always helpful.

7. Maximize space

Roll up the pieces of clothes, put the socks inside the shoes, stir the belts on the side of the suitcase, and use packing cubes, so your suitcase will have more space, besides, being more organized.

8.  Leave extra space in your bag

Even if you don't plan, you can buy souvenirs, something that was on sale, etc. so organize your suitcase leaving enough space for this stuff is necessary.

9. Organize your carry-on baggage

It doesn't matter if it is a national or international trip, carry-on baggage is always useful.

You can keep your documents, cell phone, medicines, personal care, a book to read during the flight (if you want) and a change of clothes. If your luggage is lost, you can survive for some days with it.

10. Weigh your luggage

Avoid paying excess baggage fees by weighing your luggage before going to the airport.  Nowadays, most of the airlines allow an item of 50 lbs and a carry-on suitcase, however, check out the policy of the airline which you are traveling.

If you want to plan your trip easily, download Tripsy App. You can organize all your trips in only one place, share it with friends and family, access exclusive itineraries, besides receiving flight alerts and many more features.

Choosing your next travel destination

Choosing your next travel destination can be hard. Enjoy your next vacation with this tips from Tripsy.

You are on vacation and don't know what is the best destination to travel. Don't worry, it is a common situation, with many amazing places around the world choosing the best one is not so easy. Check out the following tips and enjoy your next destination:

1. What's your budget?

Based on your budget, you can choose a far or close destination, if you are going to stay in a simple or luxury hotel, the duration of the trip, etc.

You also should consider currency exchange rates, check how much money are you going to spend with attractions, etc.

2. How much time can you spend traveling?

If you have just a few days, traveling to a distant place can be fruitless. The hours you're going to be flying, the adaptation to the time zone change, etc. can make your trip tiresome.

Sometimes, we only think about traveling to other countries, we don't realize the abundance of nice destinations that are around us.

3. Who are you going to travel with?

Are you going to travel solo or with friends? Is it a romantic trip or a family one? 

All these questions can help you decide what's the best option. 

If you are traveling with children or elderly, an adventurous trip with hiking and trekking it's not a good idea. Everyone should be happy with the travel destination when traveling in a group, so get all the travelers involved in the decision-making process, so the trip can be great from the beginning to the end.

4. What do you like?

Do you prefer hot or cold weather? Urban or natural places? Modern or historic cities? Practicing sports or going to museums?

Going to Europe during winter is not going to be nice if you can't stand cold temperatures. The same way, a cultural trip is not a smart choice if you prefer to swim or go hiking in the woods. Your destination must be a place where you will feel good.

Follow your preferences is the key to have an awesome trip.

5. Special events

Keep in mind that special dates such as Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, New Year's Eve in New York, etc. can make the prices of flights and accommodation increase. Not to mention that crowds can be annoying and make you waste time in lines.

Choosing another date or destination is a good idea.

6. Follow the deals

A place that you've never thought traveling to can be your next destination. Be open-minded, and a cheap flight can decide where you are going on your vacation.

7. Find inspiration for your trip

Take a look at Pinterest, Instagram, travel blogs, magazines, and also talk to your friends and family. 

A stunning photo or a conversation with someone can give you different ideas of destinations.

After you have chosen your destination, it's time to plan your trip using Tripsy App. Organize all your trips in only one place, share it with friends and family, receive flight alerts, also access exclusive itineraries among other amazing features.
