Summer may be starting to wind down for some, but there's still some to get in a quick vacation, and Google is rolling out new features to help you.
Google Maps can now show all of your upcoming flight and hotel reservations in one place. Just tap the gray lines in the upper-left corner of your screen, select "Your Places", then hit "Reservations" and you'll find all of your info. They're even available offline if you don't have service.
Once you've arrived at your destination, you can use Google Maps' Live View to get around. This feature uses augmented reality (AR) to show your arrows and directions on top of the real world. It's been available on Google's Pixel phones for a while now, and it's now coming to Android and iOS devices that support ARCore and ARKit.
If you're just getting started on booking a trip for your vacation, you can use Google to see whether current prices for your trip are high, low, or typical. Google already shows this info for a flight route, but now you can use it to check your entire itinerary.
Google is going one step farther with flight price tracking. When it predicts that a flight price won't decrease for select itineraries made between August 13 and September 2, it will guarantee the price won't drop. If it does, Google will refund you the difference.
Once you've booked your flight and gotten confirmation in Gmail, Google will add your trips to a timeline and give you recommendations for what you should do next. This includes looking for hotels, restaurants, and things to do. And when you're searching for the perfect hotel, Google will show you the top neighborhoods, typical prices, and the best places to stay based on places you've stayed at before or hotels that are close to points of interest you've searched for.
