Now that the holiday travel season has wound down, many people are starting to look ahead to a spring vacation. Services like Kayak.com let you efficiently compare multiple flights to find the best fares, as well as hotels and rental cars. The experimental Google Flight Explorer page (www.google.com/flights/explorer) now lets travellers compare potential trips with multiple destinations and varying lengths all at once — and also shows baggage fees and flights that have Wi-Fi service.
For those just looking for a place to stay, Google now includes Zagat reviews, prices and availability of rooms at its Hotel Finder site (www.google.com/hotels). The company outlined other improvements to its travel-search features in a blog post last month at bit.ly/SSvnfi.
