Mobile devices have transformed trip planning. Theoretically, itineraries can be created in an instant, on-the-go—but in reality, researching and booking takes a lot of work. Many people already use Google search as a travel-planning tool, but the company went a step further to streamline the process. Leveraging deep search, machine-learning expertise, and billions of anonymous data points about where people actually visit, Destinations provides a single stop for any modern explorer. Simply type a location, such as Southeast Asia or Europe, along with “vacation” or “destination,” and Google will pull up flight and hotel options, giving users a fast way to compare different destinations and dates early in their search. Google also centralizes itineraries from fellow travelers to make trip planning even easier.
