Those who travel a lot probably already know that Google offers a service called Google Flights. As its name suggests, the app allows users to compare flight prices and find the cheapest for a trip and a given date.
The news that the Mountain View firm just announced in a blog post will make things even easier. In fact, soon, Google Flight will have a feature that will allow Internet users to anticipate rate increases.
“Google Flight can now help you be more sure you’ve booked your flight at the right time to get the best price,” says the American firm. Using the data it has in its servers, Google can predict when the price of a flight is likely to increase in the year or alternatives that allow the user to save.
For example, if you’ve selected a flight, Google Flights can tell you when fares can go up and how much you can save by booking right away.
And if you are not yet ready to book, you can also follow a flight or route to receive e-mails to know when prices will increase.
Otherwise, Google also offers a feature to help users find the cheapest hotels. Indeed, a “deals” tab has been created. It only displays offers that are subject to discounts for a specific location.
In essence, Google’s goal with these features is to make vacation planning less stressful and less time consuming. And normally, all this will be available in markets where Google already offers its Flight tool.
