Google Flights is one of the best platforms to track flight ticket prices. Thousands of users plan their travel based on price predictions on Google Flights, but the company is making it more engaging.
Google’s new campaign to make summer travel more convenient includes new features, and one of them is related to flights. Google Flights has announced the Low Flight Price Guarantee. So, if a flight costs less than what Google Flights suggests, it will refund you the difference.
When you search for flights between two destinations, Google Flights uses historical averages to suggest the lowest prices. At the same time, the platform shows whether the current prices are low, typical or high. But Google Flights is introducing a new price guarantee badge, a four-colored shield icon, that will appear when Google is “confident that the price you’re seeing today will not be reduced before takeoff.”
In other words, Google is claiming that it will show you the lowest price for a ticket until takeoff, but if the price drops, Google Flights will refund you the difference between the two price points. Google said it would “monitor the price every day until departure, and if it goes down, we’ll send you back the difference via Google Pay.” Google’s new low price guarantee is part of a new pilot program in the US.
But how to know whether your flight ticket is eligible for this guarantee or not? Google said that only flights – both one-way and round – that depart from any US airport and whose tickets are booked using “Book on Google” are eligible for the offer. This offer will not be applicable if you book tickets through any third party ticketing platform.
Google has another condition. For you to be eligible for the money-back guarantee, the price difference between ticket prices must be greater than $5. Google said, “You can receive up to a total of $500 per calendar year for up to 3 open Price Guaranteed bookings at any time.”
