A no-stress, well researched, safe and fun trip can be rare. That's where you come in. While sending someone off can be a lot of pressure, it's important to remember to leave the passenger (and you) feeling confident in where he or she is going. TripSpot can help you and your traveler make it happen.
Whether you're in charge of dropping someone off at the airport, picking the passenger up or just want to make sure he or she arrives safely, flight trackers can really come in handy. Type in the flight number on websites like FlightAware, FlightExplorer and Flightwise and check out exactly where your passenger is located, thanks to clear digital maps.
Lend a hand in helping your passenger figure out how to spend the time with various travel journals. Visiting destination guides is especially easy way to narrow down a location and search for fun and interesting events and must-see businesses. Take a look at TripSpot's Destination Guides for more information.
It's always vital not only to help your passenger figure out what's safe beforehand, but also to check frequently his or her safety while traveling. The vacationer might not be carrying around his or her computer all the time, so you better make sure he or she is under safe weather conditions. Travelers might need your help while on the road too, when it comes to road warnings or traffic updates. Check out various sites for the road with TripSpot's Road Warnings. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) website's Preparing to Fly section has safety tips on everything from flying with children or pets to security regulations.
