Make your travel search less annoying with ‘Google Destinations’

New York, March 10 (IANS) No more struggling on various browser tabs on your smartphone to plan a trip as search engine giant Google has rolled out a new tool to do an online recce and schedule your holidays without any hassle.

Earlier, people tended to use multiple tabs and apps on their smartphones to search about places and cost of travel, only to get lost between the choices.

“Google Destinations”, with certain search terms, returns the summaries of different trips a user can take, including flight costs, hotel rates, places to see and things to do.

“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,” pcworld.com quoted Google as saying.

For example, a search for “India destinations” brings up trip details for Goa, Mumbai, New Delhi, Bengaluru and more.

On this page, user can filter by interests (such as art, architecture or culture) and price, and specify exact travel dates.

All of this information comes from Google’s “Flights and Hotel” search engines, along with its massive directory of local business listings and attractions.

Tapping on any of these places leads to a page with greater detail, including itineraries, top sights, an estimated total trip price, and the climate of the place.

There’s also a “Plan a Trip on Google” tab where user can flights, hotels and restaurants related to that place.
