Google Makes Mobile Search the Destination for Holiday Planning

Google Destinations holiday travelGoogle has launched Destinations, a mobile-only holiday planning tool that enables users to browse flights, hotels and attractions within Google search.

Destinations appears whenever users search for a continent, country or state, with suggested locations, itineraries, and historic information on weather and popular visiting dates. If users add an activity or interest to their search, it will serve up appropriate spots and info.

Once theyve made a choice, Destinations will show the overall price of travel through integration of Googles existing Flights and Hotel search – including suggested good value dates in the next six months if the user doesnt specify travel dates. Travellers will still have to book each part separately though, by visiting the website of the relevant travel company.

At launch, around 200 cities will be supported.
