While you may not be bothered by this move, Google is shutting down yet another app. As of this week, the company will discontinue its travel app Trips in favour of directing customers to Google Maps as well as its newly revamped travel search engine. There is no need to believe that your tools and information are going away; you will simply have to hunt for them in different places.
As long as you are logged into your Google account, your saved places, notes, and reservations will be visible in search results. With the travel gateway of the search site, you will “shortly” have the option of changing or adding remarks. Additionally, via the Maps application, you’ll be able to access your saved locations, things to do, and trip reservations (which will be available in the near future). In addition, your reservations will be made available to you offline by default.
If you were used to having all of your vacation information in one place, the changeover is unlucky for your situation. On the other hand, it is not difficult to understand why Google may decide to shut down Trips after three years of operation on the platform. Numerous formerly exclusive features are now available through the Maps app or a web browser that you most likely already have installed on your device. Given the fact that Maps and search give more capabilities for explorers than any other app, there is little reason to devote resources to a specific app.
Airbnb, in the context of travel, should make it easier to identify office-friendly rentals on its platform, and the solution is straightforward. You might have been asked if you were travelling for work at the time by the company earlier in the process. At the beginning of your search, you can toggle on or off a work trip switch, which will help you save time. Businesses that are more relevant for business trips will be displayed by the function. Airbnb for Work will highlight rentals that have received excellent feedback from business users, as well as listings that are equipped with carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.
