Google wants to make it easier for you to plan a trip with its new Destinations on Google tool. You’ll find flight and hotel prices for flexible dates, itineraries and attractions, and more in one spot just by adding one word to your mobile search.
There are a ridiculous number of apps and websites that will help you plan and book a vacation. There are so many, in fact, that choosing which to use can be overwhelming. Search behemoth Google would like to change that.
Google launched “Destinations” on Wednesday to provide all the travel information a person might want, neatly curated, organized and bundled with booking options.
“You want go on a vacation, juggling with a ridiculous number of apps and website. But, now everything is going to be change with new Google tool called, Google Destinations. Now you have the freedom to search flight and hotel prices for flexible dates, itineraries and attractions, and more just by adding one word to your mobile search.”
Add “destination” or “vacation” after the location you want to visit, and Google will quickly show you all your options. You can compare airfare and hotel costs across popular cities in a region, see popular itineraries, and find out when the weather is good and when the destination is most popular for travelers.
In the “Plan a trip” tab, find the highs and lows for hotel and airfare over the next six months – an awesome feature if your travel dates are flexible.
Filters let you customize the recommendations by hotel class, number of travelers, and more.
Here’s how it works:
Search with Google on your mobile phone for the continent, country, or state you’d like to travel to and add the word “destination” to see an easy-to-browse collection of options. Destinations integrates a deep understanding of all the places in the world with Google Flights and Hotel search, so you can see available flight and hotel prices instantly. So instead of jumping between a dozen links or tabs to get the information you need, you can sit back and scroll—and leave the heavy lifting to us.
