Vacation planning on your smartphone is getting a little easier thanks to Google.

The internet giant is introducing a new destinations feature.

On their official blog, Google referenced internal data that showed a 50 percent increase in travel-related questions on mobile phones.

Those small screens, not the greatest to navigate on. So—that’s where Google’s announcement comes into play.

People can now search with Google on their mobile devices for the place (continent, country or state) they’d like to travel to followed by the word "destination."

The search engine will then populate an "easy-to-browse collection of options."

A simple scroll will show you flight and hotel prices instantly. You can also search vacation deals based on favorite activities and flexible dates. You can even browse the most frequently traveled itineraries. 

More on how to do that HERE. 

Just a warning, if you test out the feature on your mobile device, don't be surprised if you find yourself booking a trip.
