Calendar feed setup and sync

Calendar feed is used to display your TripIt itinerary items in your calendar application.

Our calendar feed syncs with your TripIt itinerary to display the trip in your calendar application.

  • The refresh rate of the feed varies dependent on your calendar type (15 minutes to 24 hours).
  • The feed is read only (not editable).
  • Lotus Notes and Outlook 2013 are not supported by the TripIt calendar feed.

To place your feed in Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac:
Outlook for Mac 2011 does not allow you to subscribe to a calendar feed directly, but if you're using an Exchange server, you can add your calendar in your organization's webmail interface. (Usually you'll access webmail at an address like webmail.domain.com.) To replace a feed, you'll need to unsubscribe to your old calendar and subscribe to the new feed.

  1. Click the Calendar menu.
  2. From the Share menu in your calendar view, select Add Calendar...
  3. In the Add Calendar window, select Calendar from the Internet, and paste your calendar feed URL into the field provided.
  4. Click OK.

To place your feed in Office 365 (Outlook 2013): [!Unsupported!]
You'll need to unsubscribe to your old calendar and subscribe to the new feed.

  1. Click the Calendar menu.
  2. In the Add Calendar window, select Calendar from the Internet, and paste your calendar feed URL into the field provided.
  3. Click OK.

Refreshing Your Feed

If your calendar still doesn't sync properly, you may need to refresh your feed.  Note that some calendar applications will refresh on their own (Google Calendar, for example, can take up to a day before you see changes), so you may want to wait. But if the problem doesn't clear up, try these steps:

  1. On your mobile app, delete and then resubscribe to your calendar using the instructions above.
  2. For other email applications, go to the Publishing Your TripIt data page and click the Refresh button in the upper-right corner of the page (in the Calendar Feed section).
  3. Copy the new feed URL.
  4. Add that URL to your email application using the instructions above.
  5. Wait about 15 minutes for your data to sync.
