There’s plenty of reasons why you could have a trip, or part of a trip, that wasn’t booked that way and wasn’t automatically captured by the app. A few come to mind:
CWT To Go has you covered with all of those, and it’s really simple. Just forward your itinerary or confirmation emails to email@example.com and it will read them for you to add to your trip, or create a new trip.
There’s one key point to remember with personal travel, however: You must forward those messages from the email address that you use to book business travel. If, like me, you use a separate email address to book your personal travel, you’ll have to forward that email twice: once from your personal email to your work address and again from there to firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, the app doesn’t know how to recognize you.
That might be one more step, but you get access to everything CWT To Go offers, including the flight alerts. That’s a feature that you have to pay for in other apps. Click (or tap) the icons or scan them with a QR code reader to download the one appropriate to your mobile device, remembering that message data and rates may apply.
