Seeing as this blog is named after Google it’s fitting that we talk about a great way to book flights. Well, perhaps I mean look for flights. Google is the world’s most popular search engine. When someone wants to find something on the Internet, they go to Google. Gone are the days when we Ask Jeeves. Gone also are Netscape searches or search via America Online. Google, Bing, and Yahoo! are the most popular search engines in America. Given this information, it’s no surprise that Google has a fantastic way for travelers to search for airfare.
Enter Google Flights. I first found out about this website a few years ago. I don’t remember exactly how I found it. But that doesn’t matter. What matters is that Google Flights has a superior user interface. Also, and more importantly, Google finds, somehow, the lowest priced flights around.
Their tagline is “book flights with confidence”. And that’s exactly what I do anytime I need to search for an inexpensive flight. Whether I’m traveling to Chicago or somewhere in another country, Google Flights can’t be beaten. There are a few ways to find flights in Google Flights. One way to simply to click the interactive map, which shows cities. If I want to travel to Chicago, I click Chicago. It immediately brings up a calendar. From here, I’ll input the date I want to travel. I could choose to fly one-way or round trip. After that, Google Flights gives me plenty of choices. And it lists the prices from the most inexpensive to the more expensive. This makes it easy for me, and everyone, who wants to find the cheap flights first. How great it is to go on vacation and save money while doing so!
I will always use Google Flights when I travel. After reading these tips about travel, I hope you do too!
