Google's Destinations tool can plan your holiday in a single search

The latest feature from Google allows you to browse and book your next last minute singles holidays.

Google ‘Destinations’ recommends holiday suggestions based on historic visits by other travellers and most visited itineraries, all from the comfort of your own phone.

The feature has been designed because people have been increasingly turning to their mobiles to plan holidays, according to the search engine’s blog post

Radhika Malpani, Director of engineering at Google Image posted on the blog page: “These days, mobile phones make it easier than ever for you to sneak in vacation dreaming and planning here and there-in line at the coffee shop, waiting at the doctor’s office, or on your way to meet a friend.

“In fact, last year, according to our internal data for google.com, we saw a whopping 50 percent increase in travel-related questions on mobile phones. But even as that number grows, it can be hard to get all the right information in one place on a small screen.”

She adds: “Today, we’re introducing something to make all this easier: Destinations on Google, which helps you discover and plan your next vacation, right from Google Search on your phone.”
