Traxo – Keep Travel Documents Handy

Traxo is offering an alternative to the bulky travel wallets that tourists once carried around in fanny packs and purses. Billing itself as a “digital travel wallet,” Traxo provides users with a centralized and secure place to store important documents and track travel histories without increasing the weight load on their arms and backs.

Although Traxo is known as a digital travel wallet, the platform actually does much more. When you sign up for an account and enter your travel information (like dates and places you’re planning to visit), Traxo will let you know when one of your trips overlaps with a trip being planned by someone you know. The application also digs in to see which friends in your network have visited any of your upcoming destinations, and prompts you to gather insight based on those friends’ past experiences. Forward your trip confirmation emails to Traxo to have them imported directly to your account, and Traxo will let you know when your itinerary has been updated. In addition to monitoring travel tips on social networks like Facebook, Traxo also monitors your business network and lets you know which business contacts are planning to attend the same conferences or meetings as you.

Another benefit to using Traxo is for the chance to win free perks, like round trip airfare and car rentals. Traxo manages award points and miles on your behalf. The application supports hundreds of airlines, hotel chains, and car rental agencies. It even awards “trophies” to users based on their travel histories.

Practical Uses:

  • Automatically create itineraries based off your travel confirmations
  • Share details of your trip with family members through Facebook
  • Get trusted recommendations from friends based on their travel experiences
  • Find out which colleagues are planning to attend the same conferences as you

Insider Tips:

  • Sync Traxo with your Google Calendar account
  • Adjust the privacy of an upcoming trip to limit who can see your plans
  • Invite friends to join Traxo to get more use out of the application
  • Traxo can only import trips and miles from the travel sites that a user has linked

What we liked:

  • Users can easily track their complete travel histories
  • Travel loyalty, miles, and points are accessible through one online portal
  • Traxo supports more than 150 airline programs
  • Traxo automatically updates trip details when it detects a change in an itinerary

What we didn’t like:

  • Traxo’s emails and website are only available in English
