Google updated its free mobile itinerary-planning app Google Trips

Published on : Friday, December 15, 2017

Google has revealed that it had updated its free mobile itinerary-planning app Google Trips with a new “discounts” tab.

 

 

This free mobile app now offers between 5 and 25 percent off selected tours, activities, events, and car rentals in major destinations.

 

 

The discounts come from direct partnerships arranged between Google and the booking platforms or companies providing them, said some of the participating companies.

 

 

 

BeMyGuest, GetYourGuide, EatWith, Expedia, Klook, Musement, Peek, Tiqets, TripAdvisor, TripUniq, and Urban Adventures are among the companies involved in this trip formation.

 

 

The offers varied in nature in our checks on Thursday.

 

 

The Google Trips app remains elegantly designed, offering to import your itinerary information from your Gmail account and provide model itineraries or destination inspiration based on when and where the user is traveling.

 

Google Trips has gained far more traction than its previous effort, called Field Trip, which was a location-based app that meant to offer serendipity by revealing surprising aspects of places around a user.

 

 

Google Trips outranked Google Maps in downloads among the most downloaded and best-rated of travel category apps for Android devices.

 

 

 

The Google Trips enhancement comes at the end of a year in which the company tested in desktop search vacation rental search and dynamic vacation package search, while revamping its flights search for desktop and fully rebuilding its hotel search for mobile.

 

 

 

Google also rolled out other pinches to its travel product. These include adding to its desktop search the option for consumers to receive mobile notifications about rate changes on specific hotels — a service first popularized by Yapta many years ago.
