Google has added new information to hotel and flight search to make it easier for users to plan travel during the COVID-19 pandemic. This was reported in the company’s blog.
The new information will appear in both the main search and Google Travel.
In particular, Google has added so-called “Travel Trends” to the search results, which show what percentage of hotels and flights are available in the specified region.

In addition, links to local resources have been added to the service, including information on the number of cases of COVID-19.
