Google Flights releases feature to help travelers save money

Share post:

Google Flights has introduced a new function that will assist passengers in determining the best time to book their tickets. The new option, “Cheapest Time to Book,” leverages historical trend data to show consumers when rates have historically been lowest for their chosen destination and dates.

For example, a customer looking for tickets from New York to Los Angeles in December may discover that the best time to book is now two months before travel. This data can assist passengers in deciding whether to book their tickets now or wait for a lower price.

In addition to the “Cheapest Time to Book” feature, Google Flights also offers other tools to help travelers save money on flights, such as price tracking and a price guarantee. Price tracking allows users to receive notifications when flight prices fall significantly for their selected dates. The price guarantee ensures that users will get a refund if the price of their flight drops before departure.

The platform already provides the ability to gauge current prices as low, typical, or high in comparison to historical averages. Moreover, users can activate price tracking to receive notifications of significant price drops based on their chosen or flexible travel dates.
