Google enables flight destination search by price


Google has made some updates to its travel tools, just in time for the busy spring travel season.

Now in Google Flights users can set a maximum price to see all destinations with flights within that budget.

The price tool works with both specific and flexible dates.

Once the user narrows down a destination, Google will show insights indicating whether flight prices are high, typical or low compared to what is usually available and also whether the price is expected to increase or decrease in the future.

Previously, these insights were only available for travel during holiday periods.

For hotel search, Google has created filters that allow users to sort in several new ways.

A new "Deals" filter uses machine learning to display hotels that have rates more than 15% lower than usual from one or more of Google's partners.

Users can also filter by hotel chain and by property features such as "fancy pool" or "popular with families."
