If you’re planning your Christmas and New Year trip or chalking out vacation ideas for 2018, you might find help and some discounts with Google’s newly updated tool. The internet company has just made some significant updates to its Google Trips travel-planning app, including a new tab for discounts of 5 to 25 percent on tours, events, car rentals and activities at major destinations. Google arranges these discounts through direct partnerships travel companies and booking platforms, as reported by Skift.

Expedia, Peek, Klook, BeMyGuest, Urban Adventures and TripAdvisor are some of the companies associated with Google Trips. The discounts cover major destinations around the world. When we checked the app, we found a few offers for travelers keep on exploring India, with discounts on tours and activities ranging from 10 to 20 percent. We found discounts on Project Expedition, for instance, for tours of Agra and Fatehpur Sikri, the Silk Route to Kanchipuram, Shravanabelagola, Mahabalipuram and Varanasi.

We also found that GetYourGuide was offering discounts on Taj Mahal and Agra tours from Delhi and tours of Jaipur. Discounts were automatically applied when you clicked on the link to the tour operators. But Skift did report that a link for a 30 percent off on Chicago tours from BeMyGuest got them just a 9 percent discount on a hop-on-hop-off bus tour. We recommend double-checking the discounts applied in case you decide to use Google Trips for planning your vacations.

The Google Trips app features the same minimalist design language as other Google apps, almost reminiscent of Google Assistant. It gives you itinerary information from Gmail and offers destination ideas and itinerary options if you haven’t figured out where to go and what to do just yet. But it hasn’t picked up pace in terms of users, even though it seems more popular than Google’s last travel-oriented project, Field Trip.
