4. Let google recommend you the best bang for buck flight
The “best flights” box tells you which flights are the best combinations of price and speed, so you won’t have to decide whether a layover is a good idea or if a nonstop is worth the extra buck. Google also highlights its top pick in green.
5. See the lowest price for any given day on the calendar
You can see prices for your trip on every day of the month, with the cheapest days highlighted in green. A bar graph at the bottom lets you know how prices will likely drop or rise over time.
6. Automatically see swaps that save you money
If you search for a flight that has a similar yet less costly option, the “tip” bar lets you know how much money you’ll save if you’re willing to fly earlier, later or at a different airport. Then you can weigh the cost and decide for yourself!
7. Once you find a potential flight let google monitor the price for you!
If you find a flight you like, then hit the “save this itinerary” button and let the Google Now app track its pricing. You can hit the app on your phone to see how prices are changing, and Google will email you if they dip dramatically.
