Summary (IA Generated)

Google has updated it’s travel portal to include pandemic relevant information.

Now Google’s travel portal is showing Travel Trends that reveal additional information about flights and hotels, changing  how decision making is done.

The interface also shows travel advisories that warn travelers if the destination is infested with Covid-19.

Clicking the “Travel advisory” button takes the user to a Google search page that informs the traveler of the Covid-19 situation at the destination they are researching.

The Google travel portal has also added a filter that when toggled shows only hotels that offer free cancellation.

Google added this filter to help travelers who might change their mind because of Covid-19 considerations.

Toggling the free cancellation filter will restrict the Google Travel search results to hotels that are flexible and offer free cancellation.

Many hotels and vacation rentals now offer free cancellation to give travelers more confidence when planning trips.
