Google has always been a great place to start a search for travel arrangements. It just got even better! New updates to Google mobile will now make it even easier to find the absolute best prices on flights and hotels.

- Hotel deals: If a hotel rate is lower than usual or if there are discounts available for your specific travel date, Google will now include a “Deal” label on the search result.
- Hotel tips: If you can save money traveling on a different day, you might get a “Tip” that tells you how much you can save with a little flexibility.
- Better flight price tracking: If you save a Google Flight and it drops or increases significantly in price, you’ll now get an email notifying you of the change.
