    Gmail posted a blog update today about grouping emails related to trips:

    Official Gmail Blog: Trip Bundles in Inbox by Gmail

    Please check their blog post for specifics about using Inbox by Gmail to group emails related to trips.

    Note: if you landed here and want to change your Gmail settings so regular emails are grouped together, this is how to enable conversations:

    Back to Inbox by Gmail, I've tried it out, but have had some resistance to changing away from regular Gmail because it would change the way I work.

    Similar to the Gmail example about grouping emails together, I have a large system of Gmail filters & labels, and also use multiple inboxes and stars features:

    For me, using stars and labels is more than enough to keep me organized.

    I tend to use the purple question mark for travel related emails that contain information I'll need such as the addresses for hotels where I'll be staying.

    What do you think? How do you organize your travel email? Stars? Labels? Trying out Inbox? Something else?
