Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, searches for “staycation,” “beach rentals” and “cabin rentals” have increased by over 100 percent, according to Google.
Because of this, Google Canada has released travel-related trends to help users learn more about taking trips within the country.
Google has also released features to help people stay up-to-date with travel-related details.
Some of these features include allowing users to view the percentage of open hotels, including availability and the number of flights going in and out of a city or country.
There’s also a free cancellation filter, allowing users to find hotel and vacation rentals that offer refundable rates.
