TripCase – Helping turn your TDY into TDWise

TripCase Is Excellent For the Military Traveler

Ever get frustrated trying to figure out what rental car company the CTO booked for you, or can’t remember which email your flight itinerary got sent to (if even accessible by phone)?

Information Consolidation

TripCase is a free app that simplifies all that by keeping track of hotel, flight, and rental car information that are booked through the Commercial Travel Office, automatically.  The app consolidates your reservation information and provides (optional) push notifications about your flights.  The information is fed through the Sabre reservation system so it automatically populates the data from CTO.

Share and Scan Trip Receipts

Another great feature of the app is the ability to share trip information, which is extremely helpful if you have to manage a trip for the boss (looking at you, aides-de-camp).  An add on feature for $4.99 provides the ability to scan and save your trip receipts via your phone so you don’t have to manage the paper copies (looking at you, receipt-to-pocket stuffer).

Automatic Data Population

Make sure you set up the app with the same email address you have listed on DTS to receive your itineraries from the CTO.   You do not need to provide TripCase login information for your email account, but through some PFM, the Sabre system does the matching for you.  If you make reservations outside of DTS, you can email the confirmation to trips@tripcase.comand they will also be added to your active trips.

If you read “Sabre” in this article and didn’t picture this, you are wrong.

One last added bonus is TripCase automatically populates your eInvoice into the documents section for when you accidentally delete the receipt from CTO and need to complete your voucher in DTS.
