When you're planning a trip, you've got to keep track of hotel reservations, car reservations, flight plans, and so much more. Thankfully, there are websites that will do it for you for free.

I get a lot of questions from people about travel. They're kind of perplexed as they try to put together all the moving pieces.

Enter a couple of websites like Rome2Rio.com, RouteRank.com, and KDS.com. Now, I should say I've only tried out Rome2Rio so far. But I like what I'm seeing. This particular one guides you through every phase of a trip.

I think the thing I love most about Rome2Rio is it also lets you search by city and shows hotels by price points in a neighborhood. Everything is color coded so you can see by color what you want to spend.

So the next time you're planning a getaway, let these travel sites be your trip planner.
