Now, let Google handle your entire travel story. Confused?!! Well, recently it announced that it has completely transformed the way people search for hotels and flights with the help of smartphones. This step is definitely in lieu of the fact to make trip planning simpler on mobile devices.
Further, the company also added that hotel and flight bookings would be now made possible through Google Search results. Users would be able to scroll through search results for hotels where the list includes photos, and swipe through those photos without any alteration to the list of results. With this, date and price filtering are also made possible through the results page, which users would be able to book through Google.
This is also the similar way for the flights, as bookings are now made possible through search and the same filtering and comparisons, similar to hotels can be done on air travel searches. Google has made it much easier for the users now to shuffle between flights and hotels with a new tab layout. In fact, users can also search by destination to determine the best hotel and flight options. In addition, the “More Destinations” tab also offers suggestions on nearby trips for that original destination and, with this, of course, Google-approved companies might offer additional services along the way.
Google’s main focus here is to rope in as much as consumers, planning and booking for travel on a smartphone, rather than carving out time on a computer at home. Rather, quite a significant number of people are deciding to make last-minute changes and don’t have the patience to flip through multiple windows and apps to get where they want or need, to be.
