If you’re planning a trip and have a specific budget in mind, or looking for a hotel ticks certain boxes, Google announced a few new features in Google Flights and Hotels last week that will help your travel planning a lot easier.
The first feature is a price filter that will allow you to choose where to go based on your budget – if of course, you are flexible in terms of the destination. Just go to Google flights on desktop and set a budget, and you get a range of results within that budget.
Say you’re in New York and you want to spend $250 on a flight somewhere. The tool will show you all the destinations within a specified date period, all within that amount.
Once you’ve decided on where actually to go, most trips offer a price insight (also available on mobile) which shows you whether the prices you have found “are high, typical or low compared to what you’d usually find.”
The tool will also be able to tell you “if the price won’t get any lower or if it’s expected to increase soon so you can make the best decision on when to book.”
