I’ve started using this service a little while ago to organize the different trips that I take, and with summer coming up travel season will be in full swing.  The service is call Tripit, and it’s an easy way to keep different trip information in one place, and mobile.  

It’s a great tool for organizing your itineraries, details, and updates to your trips.  I’ve used it for both road trips and trips that required me to fly.  A great bonus is if you have made your reservations online (air, hotel, rental cars), you can forward your email confirmations to the service and they will even build your itineraries for you.  For road trips I used it to map out stops along the route and addresses of where I was going for my GPS in the car.  There’s also a place for notes where you can keep other information you’ll need.  When you build an itinerary it adds in helpful information about your destination, including weather and maps.

My favorite part is that they have a great free iPhone app (iTunes link) that allows you to access all the details of your trip directly from your phone.  So if you are flying somewhere you can get your a link to your flight status right in the app.  It’s been a huge times savings for me to keep all my details in one place.  It would be a great place to keep those mission trip or summer camp details in one place.
