BlackBerry Travel 1.1 now available


I can't tell you how easy this app has made my life. As soon as I get the confirmation email from my travel service, all the info is automatically added to BB Travel. Super easy!

Hi @esbuenodun,

Alex from RIM here. You’re not kidding about BlackBerry Travel! It’s been a lifesaver for me many times with flight status updates. Another app I love and recommend when traveling is Poynt – a BlackBerry Super App that’s great for finding nearby restaurants, movie theaters, events etc. In fact, if you have a PlayBook, you can actually “push” a phone call from the Poynt app on your tablet to your BlackBerry smartphone – that means you can easily call and book a reservation at the hairdresser that Poynt just helped you find.

Check out this demo ( to see what Poynt is all about and then give it a try for yourself.

Rebooting my phone now. Looks like some solid improvements, I really wish I could cancel the hotel reservations all together sometimes since I might be staying at a friends home etc.

Any information on why this is not available for germany yet?

I'm starting to consider moving to Kenya, just to use it. ;)

BlackBerry Travel, is one of my absolute must have apps. It is extremely powerful and productive. I cant wait to update. Who knew booking a flight could be so fun! ;)

not available in my country. Belgium by the way.

Even Tanzania is in the list of supported countries.
