Best Travel Planning Software / Website

Like most people, I use a combination of google maps and hotel/airline sites to plan upcoming trips.

What I'd like, is the ability to enter the time and location of a meeting, and have the software suggest the best itinerary using current flight info AND driving information.

In other words, I'm tired of doing all the comparisons between flight schedules and possible drive times if different airports are used.

Of course, some built in preferences like preferred airline, hotel chains, etc would also be nice.

Any of you ever seen/used something like this?

Thanks,

Doug

Did a search to see if there were any calculators out there that could do this, but they only do driving OR flying, not both. I imagine any software developer could make some decent money making a solution here though.

This has been my experience as well. I just hoped there was something I was missing. With all the frequent travelers in the world, it really surprises me that there's not a product with this functionality.

Maybe this is my million dollar idea!!
