Google also added new tools to help trippers find great deals in the Explore Map in Google Flights. It offers Google users more flexibility around their itinerary, especially if your travel plans are fixed at the last hour.

Google News Lab and Google Polygraph form the core of the Holiday Planner engine room.

Richard mentions, “Google Flights searches through thousands of possible destinations, analyzes their historical flight prices and then highlights cities with good deals in green.”

If you are planning to stay at a hotel, Google’s Price Insights for Hotels could be very helpful. The tool provides a data visualization dashboard to show how room tariffs evolve over time, matching your travel dates. You can see historical data, based on your selection of dates, destination, and star-ratings.

Planning in advance always helps, and Google’s new holiday tools are more than just data visualization providers. They could be your best ally to a pocket-friendly trip. Cheers!
