Dear fellow travelers,

Today I'd like to announce some exciting news: the Vamo team will be joining the amazing team at Airbnb.

We started Vamo three years ago with a vision to simplify trip planning. We grew the team, we moved into our own office, we tested and iterated, we added features, we removed features. We launched a product.

So much has changed since we started, but our vision to make travel better has always been the same. That's why we're so excited to join the team at Airbnb. Complexities around international multi-city travel continue to exist, but we believe that in the long run we’ll be able to make even more significant improvements to the future of travel by joining Airbnb.

As of now, Vamo will not be accepting new registrations. For those of you that are in the middle of trip planning, Vamo will continue to accept reservations through the end of September. Starting October 1, functionality will become limited – you'll be able to view your trips but you won't be able to make any new reservations. Don't worry, all bookings will be honored, even after September.

To learn more about this announcement and what it means for the future of Vamo, please take a look at the questions & answers here. We've also put together a blog post summarizing all the flight and travel hacks that Vamo was built upon, so you can become an expert in booking your own multi-city trips.

Last but not least, I want to say thank you so much for your support – it's been an incredible journey and we're so grateful that you've joined us for the ride.

Founder & CEO

Questions & Answers
What happened to my existing flight and transit reservations?

Flight and transit reservations are always handled through third-parties and not directly with Vamo. Therefore, they will be unchanged.

What happened to my existing hotel reservations?

Any existing hotel reservation will remain unchanged. The reservation is still valid.

Where can I make changes to hotel reservations?

Registered users will still be able to access old trips on Vamo after October 1, but you won't be able to modify them directly on Vamo. You can always use the confirmation email that you received from with the subject line "Your Reservation Has Been Confirmed" to make changes to your hotel reservation, or you can make changes through Expedia's affiliate site.

How can I book complicated itineraries?

Don't worry, we've collected all of our best flight hacking tips in our Flight Hacking Academy post so you'll be able to create your own Vamo-style itineraries in no time! For non-flight transportation, Vamo has always been powered by Rome2Rio so we'd recommend using them directly. For lodging, we encourage you to book your stays at Airbnb!

How can I reach you if I still have questions?
