Tripit is my newest favorite app. I love this one so much. I wrote an article on why it’s so great. Tripit will instantly create a master itinerary for each trip that you can access anytime, anywhere. Some will say they use Google Trips, but I have not used this yet – well, not extensively. I like Tripit because you can forward any reservation from any source to the tool, and it plots it accordingly. If you’ve used both Google Trips and Tripit, I would love to hear what you think is best and why.
Like Kayak, Skyscanner will show you prices globally using “everywhere” in the “to” box. It lets you search for vague dates and will even suggest the cheapest month to fly. I’ve found Skyscanner to be beyond reliable regarding price. They have a robust multi-city tool that enables you to search for the best deal without sticking to one carrier. Additionally, Skyscanner allows you to create Price Alerts for a specific route. Typically, I use a combination of Kayak, Skyscanner, and Google Flights to nail down the best prices or the best routes. I often purchase through Skyscanner.
