Even though the summer travel season has largely ended, Google this week expanded Google Trips, Google Flights, and Google Destinations to a more international audience thanks to new languages and availability. For example, Google Destinations is now available in 14 new languages, including Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Filipino, Hungarian, Indonesian, Japanese, Lithuanian, Malaysian, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovakian, and Slovenian. Google Flights is now searchable in 26 additional countries and languages across much of Europe.
