    When I met her

    Hello, teachers.

    I have a question.

    I want to say "When I met her in trip.".

    But I don't know "when I met her "in" trip"

    Is it correct? in trip? on trip? from trip?

    I don't know when we can use in on from

    I want to say "When I met her in trip" I have deleted an unnecessary full stop (period).

    But I don't know "when I met her "in" trip" Unnecessary.

    Is it correct? in trip? on trip? from trip?

    I don't know when we can use 'in', 'on' and 'from'.

    Re: When I met her

    'When I met her on a trip/a ride/a journey/a voyage/a flight/an expedition/a pilgrimage.

    Is it correct to use 'on' before all of them?

    Re: When I met her

    The OP should note that the preposition is followed by "a​ trip". The article is important.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: When I met her

    'When I met her on board.'
    No article should be used here, correct?

    Correct.

    I met her on a boat.
    I met her on board.
    I met her on board a boat.

    Re: When I met her

    I met her on board a boat.
    Is this a short form of "I met her on board of a boat"?

    Re: When I met her

    No. It's an idiom equivalent to the preposition 'aboard'.
