BlackBerry Travel

Bitten by the travel bug? Well, here is something for you and all the other keen travelers: BlackBerry Travel is now available in 45 different countries! Since its inception BlackBerry Travel has enjoyed a lot of attraction from numerous people worldwide, but to the disappointment of many, it was initially available only in North America, UK and Spain. But that should not matter anymore, as RIM has actively rolled out its application in more countries over time, effectively reaching a broad, worldwide audience.

Countries supported by BlackBerry Travel currently include Argentina, Aruba, Australia, The Bahamas, Barbados, Bolivia, Canada, Cayman Islands, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, France, Gibraltar, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Jamaica, Kenya, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Norway, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, United Kingdom, United States, Venezuela, British Virgin Islands and U.S. Virgin Islands.

No excuses this time not to download the application, so head over to BlackBerry App World for the download. If your country is not listed above, no worry, the application will likely find its way to other countries with time - patience is key.

BlackBerry Travel now available in over 40 countries


they need to make it to Brazil!! RIM forgets how importante the Brazilian costumers are!! everything takes so much time to come to Brazil!! thats bad!!

They need to sort out the calendar problem where return journeys appear on the next day! Also, any news on when the podcast app will be available outside North America?

I have been using the Blackberry torch for just over a week and I am damn near distraction. This has to be the worst smart phone I have ever owned. I wouldn’t even use this wart if it weren’t for my dumbass centralised IT function who seem to have made this ill educated corporate decision.

The worst design function is the handset lock button as the handset keeps unlocking its due to the 15 minute delay between pressing lock and the hand set applying password security. I am unable to asign any password functions to the handsets lock button top left of said handset. And due to the corporate agreement I am unable to change the stupidly assigned 15 muinute delay

The map has to be the worst known to man, it has to reload every time you move the sceen, have you guy's not heard of cache... that's right cache not cash.

The browser is as near as useless, I cannot bring myself to use it for sheer frustration.

Upon accessing my Microsoft Outlook profile, your badly design handset took it upon its self to download in excess of 6000 contacts to my handset rendering my handset address book as completely useless.

App world seems a total disaster, from my very limited experience, that experience being limited by you. For example BA have a very user friendly app on iPhone and a near impossible user app for Blackberry.

When I think about it all I have from this poorly designed handset is decent access to email and the ability to make calls. I'm am shocked to find that this is your BBs best attempt at designing a smartphone. No wonder they are losing so much ground to Android, Apple and soon mircosoft

I hope that you do take these comments on board as the Blackberry torch has to be one of the most removed handsets in terms of usability.

I am writing this because I feel as though BlackBerry have wasted so much of my time I now resign the handset to my employer and will get my own smart phone from a vendor who has deeply considered usability.

Considering you are posting this response on a fansite as if it was RIM itself,I can only assume a large part of your problems are due to user error.

I also think all those problems are because of user error, just like posting all that in a thread of Blackberry Travel...

You must lead a sad, boring life my friend. You posted this on in the Playbook thread as well. It's fine and all dandy that you don't like the phone but that doesn't mean you need to go around bashing it. There must be something else you could be doing with your time.

The only issue I'm having is that I cannot adjust connection settings like I could in Worldmate. I'm on BES and it won't allow me to connect.

yeah! Philippines! this is helpful for traveling here coz our country is archipelago, needs plane travel alot so.. sweet!

I still have an excuse. Until RIM decides to let us install applications into external memory or even the internal memory then I'm all outta luck. the pitiful amount of ram on older devices suck..

yeah we've heard it all before but until then im still stuck

I can't express how awesome this app is. Gave me updates when my flight got delayed and the gate changed. Definitely way more than just a log for the data you enter. Lifesaver, this app made travel so much better.

Hi @dannymac77,

Alex from RIM here. None of us on the Social Team would’ve never made it through our recent North America BlackBerry PlayBook fan events without BlackBerry Travel. It seriously saved me several times with flight status and hotel booking updates.

You should definitely also check out Poynt. Since it’s a BlackBerry super app, it can do things like tap BlackBerry push services to allow you to actually “push” a phone call from within the Poynt app on your PlayBook to your BlackBerry smartphone, so you can easily book a reservation at the restaurant Poynt just helped you find.
This demo ( shows Poynt in action and has links to other super apps.
