Google Just Made It Easier to Save Money on Flights and Hotels

Google today updated several of its travel tools in ways that should help people find the best, least-expensive options when traveling. Google Flights, for example, now includes tips under search results, such as when prices are abnormally low or high. Google Flights can also let you know that prices are unlikely to change, so it is safe to book most any time. These tools are powered by machine learning, and can alert people who opt to track flight prices via email. Google added similar tools to its hotel search function, which will tell people when room rates are higher than usual, or if the area is busier than normal due to some local event. The hotel price tracking feature also gains the ability to send email alerts when prices change. The Google Trips app adds a handful of new functions. For example, Trips' new Discounts feature tells people when it is best to book tickets for attractions and other activities, such as visiting Alcatraz during a trip to San Francisco. This is specifically meant to help save money. Moreover, a "trending destinations" tool lets people know where other people want to go on vacation for specific time periods and/or holiday weekends. This may help people avoid over-crowded destinations. Google Flights and Google Trips are free to download from the Google Play Store.
