Google launches ‘lowest price guaranteed’ badge on US flights


EFE.- Google launched this Monday its “guaranteed lowest price badge” on Google Flights, a badge that means that the American company is sure that the price of a flight will not drop any further and that, if Google is wrong in his estimate, agrees to return the difference.

“If you booked one of these flights, we monitor the price every day until takeoff, and if there’s a price drop, we’ll automatically refund the difference to you in Google Pay,” said Jade Kessler, product manager on the Google Flights team at a presentation event organized in New York.

At the moment, these badges are only available for flights that are purchased through “book” (reserve) in Google Flight and flights that depart from the United States, whether domestic or international.

It will be Google that will monitor the price of the flight every day until its departure and, if the price drops, the technology giant will return the difference to the buyer through Google Pay.

According to the company, the searches carried out by people in the United States for these summer vacations – based on searches with dates between June and August 2023  are: London first, followed by Cancun, Paris, Orlando, Rome, New York and Vegas.

Another novelty that Google is launching today is a new way to search for hotels on mobile devices more easily.

Now, when Internet users enter their search patterns, such as location or price for hotels, they will be able to see that information in a format similar to the stories on the Instagram social network.
