To utilize the Destinations on Google service on your mobile device, users simply choose a continent, country or state they would like to visit and add the word “destination” at the end before beginning the search.

With the integration of Google Flights and Hotel search engines, users will be shown the best prices for plane tickets and hotel stays at their desired destination. In addition, travelers can also add an activity into the search bar, and Google will also recommend places at the destination where users can find the activity.
