Google has uncovers a new set of features for google.com/travel that build on top of already-existing features to help users plan out their next trip. These come in addition to the company's Travel Trends tool, which will tell you what destinations are trending for Labor Day, and where you can get a hotel deal.

And Google doesn't say which airlines and routes the price guarantee is available for; we've reached out for more information. This is valid for certain trips originating in the USA booked between August 13th and September 2nd, though Google didn't reveal which specific flights are eligible.

Google Flights also shows price history for your travel route. You'll be able to access your flight and lodging reservations from the Maps app, even if you're offline-which comes in handy when you land in an global locale with no wi-fi. Google "competitor" Bing had a price predictor for years before it was shuttered in 2014. These include searching for hotels, restaurants, and things you can do in the city that you are visiting. The app will make suggestions based on prior searches and bookings. You can export the places to a list which you can share and you can even add notes to the places so you won't forget what you ate or what you liked about it. Reservations, Live View, and the new Timeline will roll out to Google Maps in the coming weeks. Also, if you like our efforts, consider sharing this story with your friends, this will encourage us to bring more exciting updates for you.
