In a direct competition to online travel agents in India, Google has introduced its flight search feature in India. Google Flight Search can help you find better deals and the best flight for you. Now, you can search directly for flights within Google or access google.co.in/flights to quickly find, compare and book flights from your mobile device, tablet or desktop.
Based on your preferences and previous searches, the Google flight search displays the prices and duration of flights to destinations that you want to visit. If you set your dates and tap to expand the map, you’ll instantly see live prices for destinations around the world.
When you click on the departure date field, you’ll see a calendar with the lowest fares for the route highlighted for each day. You can also use the lowest fares graph below the calendar to see how prices may fluctuate based on the season, holidays or other events. Scrolling through a couple of months quickly shows you when it’s a great time to fly.
Once you select your departure and return dates, you’ll be presented with a list of ‘Best flights’, which represents the best tradeoff between convenience and price. You can always view other flights by scrolling through the summary list or selecting, “Show longer or more expensive flights”.
You can easily select your outbound and return flights — and book your flights by clicking on one of the blue partner book buttons.
