Google Trips is a new travel app that is designed to make it easier for consumers to book flights and accommodations from their smartphone. While there are many travel apps available to consumers, this platform grabs information from multiple sources to help users create more comprehensive itineraries.
Google Trips works in conjunction with each user's Gmail account to make it easier to plan and book trips. The app works by grabbing flight, hotel and other travel information from the user's email account and then compiles a complete overview of the trip. Users can also build the itinerary manually, adding information such as attractions, restaurants or modes of transport. What makes the app even more exciting is that it works offline, eaning users can view all of their trip details even when they are without an Internet connection.
While the app is still in its beta testing phase, Google Trips could soon change the way consumers manage travel information on their smartphone.
