    Hi, You will have to provide more information in order to receive a meaningful response, what exactly do your tables llok like?  Without seeing your table structure I would guess that you could use a NOT IN query, ie. select tripid from yourtable where tripid not in(select tripid from tb1) and tripid not in(select tripid from tb2) and tripid not in(select tripid from tb3) etc.. 

    I will try and help further if you give more information.
