If you haven’t caught on by now, traveling is one of my favorite pastimes. The latest two lifestyle posts were titled 4 Tips to Catch a Flight Deal and The #1 Flight Search Engine. Both of those posts chronicle a few of my tips to finding a flight deal. Earlier this month, “Google Destinations” was released which not only helps you find flight deals but also provides quick access to the hotel, dining, and excursion deals.
Check out this awesome video released by Google on March 8th that covers the basics:
To experience Google Destinations, grab your smartphone and search using Google any state, country or geographical region and add the word “destination”. Google’s new technology integrates information from Google Flights and Hotel Searches to initially show you low price dates, round trip flight price and hotel price per night.
In the example below, I searched “Caribbean Destinations” on the google app on my iPhone. I received round trip flight and hotel price information for over 8 cities in the Caribbean.
Once you find a city that you are interested in traveling to, you can click on the city name. For the example below, I clicked on San Juan and was presented with two tabs: explore and plan a trip.
The explore tab provides basic information about San Juan, suggested itineraries, top sites to see, when to visit and links to videos about the city.
Plan a Trip
The plan a trip tab allows you to estimate your trip price based upon the dates, number of travelers, and hotel star rating.
Overall, I am very impressed with Google Destinations! I went traveled to Puerto Rico in 2014 and visited over 10 different websites to find the information provided on just two tabs.
Will you use Google Destinations to plan your next vacation?
