3 tips to get more out of the Google Flights service
1. Track flight prices for any date
From Google Flights we can track the prices for specific dates between two cities. To do this, just search for the destination, turn on the feature, and Google will send you an email if prices drop substantially for those dates.
However, maybe there’s somewhere you’ve always wanted to go and just want to get the best deal possible. The best of all? Starting now, you can start tracking prices to find deals for any date, and you’ll receive an email if we spot lower-than-normal rates in the next 3-6 months.
2. Look for destinations within short travel distance
The eternal doubt. Don’t know what to visit?
To do this, the Explore tool allows you to search for locations around the world using filters such as budget or trip duration. Then, in the standard view, Explore will display flight prices, and now you’ll also have a pink dot and an “Explore Nearby” option.
All they have to do is select this feature and limit their search to places within a few hours of travel and select any destination to see useful information, including average hotel prices or what kind of weather to expect.
Finally, if you decide to take this road trip, Google Maps can help you in many ways.
3. Find the perfect place to stay
So after deciding where we want to go, it’s time to decide where to stay. In this sense, we can search for hotels on Google.
In fact, if we go to a new city, it can be difficult to choose which neighborhood to be in. So, with new layers by interests on the map, we can quickly see which areas have the most options for dining, shopping, or sightseeing.
On the other hand, for more popular destinations, you can also select the “Where to Stay” option in the search filters, to get a helpful neighborhood guide.
Finally, for some trips, we may want easy access to a particular tourist address or location. The best of all? Starting today, we can enter that location into the hotel or vacation rental search bar and you’ll see properties within a 15- or 30-minute walk or drive.
This can be especially helpful if you’re traveling to an event, such as a wedding or conference, and want to be close to the venue.
