Love to travel, or fly a lot with business? Thinking about purchasing an Apple Watch? Then we have some exciting news! Sabre recently made its travel management app TripCase, available on the newly released Apple Watch. TripCase is an innovative app, which has set standards for how to travel stress-free. It keeps travelers informed and connected on all aspects of a trip, from the planning stages, to flying out, the vacation time, and returning home. Now, all that information can be accessed by a simple lift of a wrist. In fact, the new version of the TripCase app now provides users of the Apple Watch with much needed, and often, time-sensitive travel information, including real-time flight alerts.
Available on iTunes, the app also provides Apple Watch users flight and hotel information – including the status of their flight, gate number, address of and additional contact information of their hotel, plus confirmation codes. In addition, with a simple tap of a button on the Apple Watch, travelers can access incredible savings for restaurants, shops, or local attractions at their destination location through the TripCase app.
For travelers that use other Apple products, the app is designed to handoff information from an iPad or iPhone to the Apple Watch. The best news? Real-time notifications are sent to all Apple products where the app has been downloaded on, and instantly filter through to the user.
A 2014 study conducted by TripCase based on the 30 million trips the app managed revealed that 70% of flights with air segments required a change within 72 hours of departure. Within this statistic, 69% were schedule changes or delays, 29% were gate changes, and 2% were cancelled flights.
TripCase has dove into the world of wearable technologies, by creating apps for electronics like the Android Wear, as well as Samsung and Pebbles smartwatches; with advancements where users receive all the vital trip information they need.
