How to get started with Inbox Sync:

Android and iOS mobile apps:

  1. Tap the Account tab (bottom right).
  2. Tap your name (top of page).
  3. Select the email address(es) you wish to authorize Inbox Sync.
  4. Enable the Inbox Sync toggle.


We've redesigned our web experience. You may still have the option to access your account from our legacy site so we've included instructions for both.

From our new web experience:

  1. Click your Profile icon (top right).
  2. Click 'Account and Security' > 'Manage Account'.
  3. Select the email address(es) you wish to authorize Inbox Sync.
  4. Click Activate Inbox Sync.

From our legacy site:

  1. Click Set up Inbox Sync and never forget to forward a plan on the Home page.


  • For Google, you will be prompted to let TripIt access your inbox. Click Grant Access.
  • For Yahoo!, you will need to provide your Yahoo! password. 
  • For, you will be prompted to enter your password, then click Yes.  

Note: TripIt will not store your email account password, nor will we have any record of it.


  • Inbox Sync is an optional feature the user elects to authorize and is not required to use TripIt.
  • Once authorized, import is not immediate; your inbox will be scanned within 24 hours.
  • Currently authorization can only be made via our website.  
  • Make sure your in-box contains only recent confirmation emails.  At sign up TripIt will look for all travel related emails, from the last 7 days regardless of travel date (future or past).  As most vendor confirmation emails do not identify the year of travel, past trips may be imported as upcoming trips as TripIt assumes undated travel is for a future trip.  
  • Please make sure your travel confirmation emails are in your main inbox and not a folder or label.
