Trips then create 'cards' for users, which align with their previous and upcoming travels. It pulls all necessary information including reservations, maps, sightseeing and dining recommendations to form a travel "card" on your personal app.
There are bundled reservations where users can see their flight, hotel, rental car, and restaurant bookings in one place without having to search for them individually.

It can notify users on nearby attractions (know their business hours schedules) as well as reviews and ratings from other travelers. Moreover, it also provides local emergency numbers and hospital recommendations.
