How to Enjoy Your Time at the Airport

Occasionally, we have to stay at the airport more time than we want. Being stuck there because of connections, delays, etc is normal, but you can make your time fruitful in place of getting upset while you wait for your flight.

1.Catch up on your e-mails 

Is your mailbox full, and you don't have time to read your emails? So, this is the perfect moment to check and reply to them.

2. Read a book

Bring a book along with you during a trip is very useful. Choose a nice place at the airport, and read your book calmly, the time will pass fast. 

3. Watch movies and series 

Not all airports provide free Wi-Fi with longer-lasting connections, therefore download some series and movies and have fun. Just be careful not to get so amused and lose your flight. 

4. Meet new people

There could be more people like you waiting for a flight, why not saying a "hello"? Ok, some people want to stay quiet and are not in the mood to have a chat. However, you never know when you'll meet an interesting person or even increase your network.

5. Eat local food

If you are at the airport only because of a connection and you are not going to visit the country where you are, this is a chance to try some local food. Enjoy the moment and make it part of your trip.

6. Observe

Sit and just observe the things and people around you, or sit beside the window and watch the planes take off and land. Sometimes, simple actions can be fun.

7. Sleep

You can rest and sleep. Find a comfortable chair and relax. Just be careful with your belongings and don't forget to set the alarm clock, waking up only some minutes before the flight can not be a good idea. 

8. Visit the city where you are

If you are waiting for your connection and have a lot of time at the airport, at least five hours, you can go sightseeing. Many airports offer free tours or have easy access to public transportation. It can be an opportunity to visit a new place while you are traveling.

10. Check your trip plans

Enjoy the time to check all the information about your trip, your itinerary, money, reservations, etc. Look for places to visit, restaurants and nice things to do at your destination. 

Are you going to enjoy your free time at the airport by organizing your trip information? Tripsy App is the best travel planner to help you with this.

You can organize all the steps of your trip easily, receive flight alerts and updates, access exclusive itineraries, store documents and photos, customize your itinerary and share them with anyone you want to.

Introducing Tripsy

We’re incredibly excited to launch Tripsy, a new way to organize your travels on your iPhone and iPad.

Tripsy came from a need of us having all travel information in one place: flights, hotels, calendar, museums, concert tickets, etc. The usual way to travel around is to carry all the information inside many different applications: emails, airline apps, hotels apps, wallet, files, notes and printing some important tickets. We think we can do better.

We want to offer you a way to save all your trip itinerary with as many details as you want to add to any activity, and on top of that, offer you easy ways to navigate in your travel experiences, such as maps integrations, files and flight alerts. Oh, and we also want you to be able to share this information with others easily, in the next versions of Tripsy you can expect to have this feature.

🔒 Privacy — your data is yours!

Sending the data to our cloud is up to you. You can choose if you want to sync all the data to have a backup and sync between different devices, or use only an offline copy on your device (backed up with your iCloud backup).

If you choose to use our cloud, all the information you input is yours. We’re not selling any of this data to anyone or want to use it to sell any product in the future. We don’t make money with your info, and we’ll never do that. But syncing your activities with us will give you some advantages in the future that you may want: we’ll be able to alert you on flight changes, automatically include bookings from emails and documents that you may want to include in your account, view the same information of your trip itinerary in multiple devices and in the future you will be able to have other collaborators in your trip itinerary as well.

Privacy is something that we deeply care about; it’s one of our core values. You can check our Privacy Policy in this link: tripsy.app/policy.

🌟 Premium: take more advantage of Tripsy

In order to have a sustainable business, Tripsy offers a Premium plan to everyone that travels or anyone that wants to support us in order to maintain the application running and getting updated.

For that, Premium users can create unlimited trips (Free users can only create one), have access to exclusive features in the future, unlimited access to all of our travel plans (explained below), and also sync your data between devices.

📱 Travel plans from humans — From us to you

For Premium users we offer travels plans that our team created. They are completely created by us, from our own experiences and we believe you’re going to love it. As a Premium user, you can copy one of our trip plans and edit as you prefer, making the best use of it! We currently offer trip plans to Rome (5 days), Santiago (5 days), New York (4 days), Paris (4 days), Amsterdam (3 days) and more to come.
