Google launched a new online site called Trips, which consolidates its existing travel services into a single portal, making it easier to plan your travel itinerary — from airline tickets to hotel reservations to travel packages — directly from your desktop.
Trips combines the advantages of the mobile Google Trips app, Google Flights, Google Hotels, and its search functionality for a streamlined experience that you can access from any device and pick up where you left off.
You can start using the new portal by typing in a destination search term or “hotels in London” to access a wealth of information in one go.
Trips lets you access all booking information within your itinerary, including confirmation codes, and travel information as well as weather forecasts for your travel time.
Google says this launch is the beginning of an evolution for its travel services, and that it plans tighter integration between Google Search, Google Maps, and additional services for the future.
Trips is a continuation of a travel-based undertaking that Google began last year when it rounded up reservations for hotels and flights to a trip timeline for users signed into their Google accounts and who received Gmail confirmation.
