Vamo is a trip planner website along with the features of hotel and flight booking. The website lets you choose your destination and enter some details about your trip, and then displays different relevant results you. The cool part is that you can also customize the displayed results as per your trip schedule and plan.
You have to provide details like duration of trip, arrival/departure date, origin place (only US supported), destination, number of persons going on trip, etc.. You can use the website to plan trips for as far as 1 year in future. Apart from just planning trips, the website also lets you make a list of places you have visited, review them, and also make a wishlist of places you want to visit.
Note: The website currently supports USA for selecting as origin, while you can choose any place as your destination. Another thing to note is that you can book hotels from within the website but for flights booking, it displays only the details of flight for selection but the final booking takes place on Airlines’ own website.

This options displays a Google Map that shows all the places you want to visit during the trip.
