Google has a new way to help you plan your next vacation called "Google Destinations."
Google wants to simplify the way you search for your next vacation by using crowdsourced data from other travelers.
Their new travel tool is called "Destinations" and it can tell you the best places to go, when it's cheapest to travel there and even when it's least crowded! Right now the service is only available on mobile phones and you have to use a specific keyword to access it.
To launch the tool, go to Google on your phone and type in the name of a place you'd like to go followed by the word "destinations." For example:
RICH'S TIP: Start big! Google Destinations seems to work better when you start with the name of the bigger place. For instance, if you're searching for Vancouver, try "Canada Destinations" instead of "Vancouver Destinations."
Immediately, you'll see a list of the popular places to go in those regions, including the estimated cost of a flight and hotel room.
