Google is set to muscle their way into the travel booking market with Google Flights. Google Flights is a new Search item that finds you the best deal on your travel. Just put in your departure city, an arrival destination, and Flights will find you the best deal. Simple. We all like simple. Another benefit is that Flights is you don’t even need to know where you’re going.
Google says that over half of us want to go somewhere, we just don’t know where. We sit down to plan a vacation, but aren’t even sure where we want to go. We just want to get away. Cost is a big factor of course, so finding great deals on travel is important. It’s probably the number one factor for most of us.
However, a great deal doesn’t always mean the cheapest flight. Sometimes, it’s the right flight at a good price, where you won’t have unnecessary or long layovers. That makes travel much less appealing to people. Time will tell how much people like Google Flights. Right now it doesn’t work with every airline, but once they all get on board, Google may have something here that travelers want to use.
