Trip it I don't know if you travel a lot but I know that when I was running a business I -- a lot of travel.
And it was just such a hassle to try to keep track of all my reservations for the -- -- hotels and so on so -- Trip -- is interesting because what it does is when you make a reservation either hotel airfare or whatever.
You can get a confirmation email from whoever's providing the travel you forward that to trip it.
And then the app actually choose your itinerary automatically for you.
