Founded in January 2015 in Austin, Texas.
CooMo Travel is the first Social Interactive Travel website where members can create a detailed trip itinerary, purchase airfare, hotels, and car rentals, and connect with other travelers to receive real-time recommendations and suggestions: a true one-stop-shop for travelers.
What sets CooMo apart from existing trip planning tools like Trip Advisor, Tripomatic, and travel blogs?
Current trip planning tools rely primarily on old, archived information and reviews. Avid travelers know that travel is always changing. What is good now isn't always good in six to twelve months, and sometimes the most intriguing destinations fail to get the kind of exposure that would allow non-locals to discover them.
CooMo resolves this by connecting travelers from all around the world to share expertise and travel insight. By facilitating these connections, CooMo helps every traveler plan and book the best possible trip, no matter where they are headed or what their interests are. CooMo also allows users to view past trips, making it easy for novice travelers to plan the perfect trip.
What, exactly, can I do with CooMo?
CooMo is all about community, but that doesn’t mean we don’t also bring you a host of great travel features. We want our users to have the best possible travel experience from start to finish, and everything we do is focused on achieving that goal. CooMo puts everything you need to make the most of your trip in one place, including:
- Social Interactive Trip Planner: Easily build a trip to any location with the experience and travel expertise of the entire CooMo community.
- Archived Trips- Past trips are saved and organized for any member to use as a starting point for their own perfect trip.
- Location-Based Forums and Blogs: All forums and blog posts are conveniently organized by location so users can quickly and easily find the most useful information.
- Book Flights, Living Accommodations, Car Rentals and More: CooMo streamlines the planning process by facilitating bookings for flights, living accommodations, and car rentals.
- CooMo Points: Users earn CooMo Points, which can be exchanged for a variety of incentives, by engaging with the CooMo community and using CooMo features.
What is it like to use CooMo?
CooMo is designed to help you plan and take your best trip ever, every time. When you login, you will find your personalized home page, giving you easy access to your favorite activities, relevant blog posts and travel news, and updates from your friends.
When you are ready to start the planning process you can browse through other users’ past trips to use as a template or start from scratch using our interactive trip planner.
After inputting your destinations and dates, CooMo provides trending activity suggestions based on your interests. Using our quick and intuitive platform, you then select activities and assign them to each day of your trip, generating a complete travel itinerary.
Before you finalize your itinerary, you can make it available to receive comments and suggestions from other CooMo users with expertise on your destinations and interests.
Once you have planned out the perfect trip, you can book flights, accommodations, and car rentals using the information from your CooMo itinerary, without having to re-enter it on multiple sites.
Now that your trip is booked, CooMo has one more feature to enhance your travel experience: the ability to contact other CooMo users that are traveling to the same locations at the same time! If both of you decide to connect, you can communicate, exchange tips, and even meet up as travel buddies.
We designed our system from the ground up to give you the best possible travel experience, and it is our sincere hope that with CooMo you will be able to create incredible memories and even lifetime friendships.
