Best place to Book Flights and HotelsThe best place to book flights and hotels
You have several ways to use Google's improved Google Traveller Guide user experience. They can either look specifically for flights or hotels or carry out a general "journey to" research. When you are there, you will see the "Explore" page in the upper right hand side of the screen, which contains pictures of favourite areas, places of interest, route suggestions, travelling items, places of interest in the area and other useful information.
Some of our favourite feature are best time recommendations and an out-of-four evaluation that shows the travel destination's appeal every time. According to my earlier example, Vienna is most loved in July and August, and naturally least in February and January when it is intolerably chilly.
Click on the next page and you can book flights directly through Google search. Simply enter your departures and arrivals and Google will show you the fares from a complete listing of carriers. A few practical features, such as airliner reward programmes, daytime and seat category, should help you find the best possible trip for your needs.
The same applies to the "Hotels" rider. Now you can book a room directly from your results. When you move around on the menu, a hotel and price lists appears below. Unfortunately, you will not see any concealed offers that you may get for signing up on any of the reservation pages.
However, you can see the cost of a room after tax and charges so that you won't be beaten by concealed "resort fees" when you checkout from your room. And thanks to the latest flight enhancements, Google shows you latent fares typical of the growing use of the Google-based" base economy" series.
Your Travel " last page shows Gmail booking and past travel history information, which includes your Gmail bookings, hotels and schedules, which you can e-mail to your loved ones and their families by clicking on the three verticals in the upper right hand side of the page. In the next few geographies, Google's Google application will be available in the next few geographic areas.
