A new feature was introduced to our users recently through Concur. This new feature called “Open Booking” will allow us to capture the data we need to increase our savings with travel vendors while providing travelers the same convenience of having their travel itineraries in one place, regardless of how or where you make your reservations.
To make this possible, Concur is also providing you with a complimentary subscription to TripIt Pro. It is like having your own personal travel assistant to keep you organized and in the know while your are traveling.
Follow the simple steps below to connect your Concur and TripIt accounts, and to start your TripIt Pro membership. Once you are up and running, you can continue to book travel through Concur, and your plans will automatically show up as an itinerary in TripIt. Plus, you can forward other activities and reservations booked outside of Concur to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be instantly added to your itinerary.
Open booking also makes submitting your expenses simple as your Open Booked itineraries will be available to generate an expense report in Concur, along with providing ereceipts from those vendors who provide ereceipts to Concur.
