It seems like Google is always finding a way to make our lives easier, whether that's with a maps app that works offline or with reliable reviews for the places we want to go or services we want to use. Now, they've gone and simplified traveling too. Many millennials often wonder how anyone made travel plans before Google because the idea of not being able to see multiple options for flight prices or hotels is a completely unfamiliar concept. If Google isn't your main search engine for making travel plans, it might be time to change, especially since Google Destinations will let you do everything from your mobile device.
The best part about Google Destinations is that you don't even need to worry about downloading a new app to organize all of your travel needs. From your mobile device, all you need to do is type in your desired destination and you'll have the information you need at your fingertips. Select your flight dates and see pricing or if you have some flexibility with your schedule, check out when it's most affordable to fly to where you want to go. While there are other travel sites that let you compare prices for flights, this mobile service will quickly let you adjust your expectations if you realize that peak tourist time just isn't for you...or your budget. You can set price limitations, so if you have a budget that you absolutely must stick to, you'll be able to see just how far your money will go with the flight and hotel options.
Not sure what to do when you reach the new city or country you want to see? Google Destinations provides users with suggested itineraries of the top places to visit and how to coordinate the travel in between. Forget shifting through reviews and recommendations on sites like Trip Advisor to select the best places to go because the built-in agenda will be available on your mobile phone and allow you to seamlessly choose and plan what you want to do next. With so many people already using their phone to make plans when they are in an unknown city, this will be a popular way to easily decide what you want to do without individually factoring in the logistics. Google Destinations will do it all for you.
Google Destinations is available in the U.S. and a few other countries on Android and iOS for now, but if the service has success, people all over the world will want the ease and convenience of planning their trip on their smartphone. With the help of technology, it's getting easier every day to capitalize on human wanderlust and impulse buys with your smartphone!
