Search trends show a whole new interest in travel, and so Google decided to add new features that will help travelers plan their next trip.

Search reports show that in April 2021 the search for hotels reached a 10-year high. ‘Where can I travel’ and ‘travel restrictions by country’ also received a lot of search attention.

In search results, Google is helping to answer those questions by adding three new features keeping travelers up to date with travel advisories.
