Google Travel Now Helps You Pick Best Time for Your Next Trip
Google updated its popular travel site on Wednesday. Google Travel now has new features that will provide more information to help you plan your next trip. It shows you things like the cheapest and most expensive times of year at your destination, as well as the typical weather in that place.
The new update lets you plan your vacation based on price variations during the year, weather at your destination and it popularity during each month. When you search for a destination, there’s a new tab that shows three options:
- Where to stay – It gives you hotel recommendations and prices
- When to visit – Shows you typical weather conditions, how busy the destination usually is at a given month, and when it’s the least expensive.
- What you’ll pay – Gives you moore information on price ranges for hotels.
Here is what a search for Barcelona looks like:
It shows that April, May, and June are the busiest months for Barcleona. September is the most expensive month to visit and December and January are the cheapest. The detailed information might not work for every single destination, but it should be available for most cities around the world. I searched for Tahiti for example and I didn’t get these options.
Let me know if you find this new Google Travel options useful when planning your next trip. Or if you find discrepancies compared to what you have experienced yourself.
