TripIt logs 5 billion miles … next stop Pluto [INFOGRAPHIC]
TripIt users were going places in 2011.
The itinerary management service, owned by Concur, handled users’ trip plans to the tune of more than 5 billion miles in 2011.
And, that would be the equivalent — sorry, no rewards miles offered — of a trip to Pluto (the planet), TripIt says.
Here’s a TripIt infographic detailing its users’ cumulative sojourn:
Meanwhile, separately, TripAdvisor chimed in with some year-end statistics, as well.
TripAdvisor’s happiest reviewers in 2011 were travelers to Russia, who gave ratings of 4.2 out of 5, on average.
The “chattiest travelers” on TripAdvisor in 2011 were those from the UK, who submitted 223 million words in reviews.
And, that would translate to about 400 copies of War and Peace, TripAdvisor says.
The least succinct reviewer on TripAdvisor in 2011 was hrrmph of Las Vegas, who wrote a 9,166-word review of Kandholhu Island Resort & Spa, TripAdvisor says. Under the headline, “Best snorkeling trip I’ve been on,” hrrmph rated the experience 5 out of 5.
Meanwhile, MilanAAP of Madrid, Spain, was the most prolific reviewer in terms of points of interest, having penned reviews of 113 locales in 11 countries, TripAdvisor says.
Thus, at both TripIt and TripAdvisor, the statistics were off the charts — because users weren’t static.
