Google Flights Gets Price Guarantee for Limited Period, Other New Features

Google has uncovers a new set of features for google.com/travel that build on top of already-existing features to help users plan out their next trip.

The functionality has been cooked right into the Google Search app.

An update coming to Google Flights will now show travelers guides on popular destinations based on their country and the time of year.

For any flights booked through Google that originate in the U.S. Google says because so many airlines have their own verbiage on what an economy seat may entail, it's hoping to standardize the language by showing people what type of ticket they're getting before they book.

Palestinians denounce "Israeli raids" into Al-Aqsa Mosque compound
More than a dozen Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli police at a Jerusalem holy site. Jewish tradition also maintains that Jews should avoid entering the holy site.

Google added that the difference in flight booking has to be higher than $5. Alternatively, you can visit google.com/flights to book tickets directly if you are on a PC. On top of this, for a very limited time, if the price for your trip drops anytime from when you book to when you take off, the company will refund you the difference.

Booking a Flight has become much easier as we have numerous flight booking websites and sources available on the web-world.

To bring in all of these changes, Google is offering a price guarantee for certain flights booked between August 13 and September 2 for US -based domestic or global travel that's completed by November 24. Google will monitor flight fares on your behalf and if it drops to a certain amount that you are looking for, you will receive immediate notification from Google.

When you pick an itinerary, Google will tell you whether that price is expected to go up or not. The feature was first announced at Google I/O 2018, and became available in alpha for Pixel phones earlier this winter. These come in addition to the company's Travel Trends tool, which will tell you what destinations are trending for Labor Day, and where you can get a hotel deal.
