Google Search app gets Destinations feature to aid your travel plans
Destinations is designed to let you arrange a trip using nothing but Google Search.Designed with the idea of discovering and planning your next holiday using nothing but the Google Search app, Destinations works by starting a search on your mobile phone for the continent, country, or state you’d like to travel to, then adding the word “destination” to it. This way, you'll instantly see an easy-to-browse collection of options. Harnessing the power of Google Flights and Hotel search, the feature lets you see the available flight and hotel prices instantly. To find a vacation that suits your style, you can search for a destination and something you’d like to do there, and Google will suggest spots that fit your hobbies and interests.
Google also implemented a “Flexible Dates” filter that lets you refine results by month, so you can see when fares and rates will be the lowest within a particular time range across multiple destinations. You can also select any destination and tap the “Explore” tab to see what the weather is like over there or when this place is the most popular. Once you choose a destination, tap "Plan a trip" to see rates for hotels and flights. The app will show you price highs and lows for the next six months, with the results being instantly updated with real-time fares and rates. Results can be customized with additional flight and hotel preferences, such as number of stops, hotel class, and number of travelers.
