Google Travel Is Now One Step Closer to One-Stop Shopping
Google has taken a huge next step, putting all the pieces together, including flights, hotels, packages and trip-planning tools, on a dedicated website, and in Google Search and Google Maps. Google’s foothold in travel just got even larger.
If you've been waiting for the proverbial next shoe to drop when it comes to Google Travel putting all the pieces together, it just did.
In a blog post written by Richard Holden, Google vice president product management, travel, Google said last year it made it easier to navigate between Google Flights, Google Hotels and Google Trips "easier on smartphones," and the company claims the desktop treatment is similar to what it did on mobile. But the mobile rendition of these features didn't assemble the various travel components in such a one-stop-shop manner.
