Getting the cheapest flights is often a concern, especially if you’re traveling internationally. Google Flight Search is a quick and helpful tool for locating the best prices for flyers, but when the service was launched, it was available only for US-based travelers. Google just recently expanded the service to cover more countries.
Google has now launched the service for five additional countries in Europe, including France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK.
The service was launched by Google in 2012 and one of its most important features is the easy-to-use visual flight pricing it offers. At a glance, you can see what it costs to fly into different airports from your home location. This allows you to figure out flexible flights that are near your intended location for less money. The Flight Explorer allows users to see when it’s less expensive to fly, by month or by the day of the week, or to a particular destination.
Hopefully, this is just a first step in a comprehensive launch to cover even more countries.
