7 great Google features you probably don't use

According to a recent report, by the time you read this sentence, an average of 2.3 million Google searches were conducted. No doubt, Google is our go-to resource. We use it so much that "Google" has become a verb as in, "Just Google it."

There’s more you can do with Google than merely finding an article, products for sale or websites. Here are seven Google tricks you’ll use time and time again.

1. FIND THE BEST AND CHEAPEST FLIGHTS

There are a slew of travel sites including CheapTickets, Expedia, Hotwire, Kayak, Orbitz, Priceline, and Travelocity that help you book flights, hotels and vacations. But, when you want an uncluttered and simplified way to find a flight and check prices, head over to Google Flight Search.

Google Flight Search gives you quick access to information from various airline and travel sites in one place. It shares many of the same features as the other sites such as airline comparisons, rate monitoring, and price trends.

Flight Search’s beauty, though, is its lack of ads and straightforward approach. For example, if you're flexible with your travel dates, the ticket prices are listed day-by-day on the calendar.

I especially like the map displayed on the home page. It shows pricing information at a glance for destinations you might be interested in visiting.

Go ahead, while you’re booking that business trip, take a moment to daydream about seeing the sunset from the Space Needle or the Eifel Tower.

Booking is easy. Just select the flight you want, and follow the prompts to purchase your ticket.

Note: Having a great online tool isn't the only thing you need to get a great price on tickets. Click here for a secret formula that shows if you're paying too much for airfare.
