It’s always worth checking the price of flights, especially to see if it makes sense to use points or not. In this exercise, the tool provided by Google, Google Flights is certainly the easiest to use, while being complete.
Google Flights offers flight price monitoring
We have already studied in detail all the main features of Google Flights in this article.
You can search by destination or by card while filtering according to alliances or airlines, or desired departure / arrival times.
Now, Google Flights not only allows you to save routes, but also to alert you of any price movement.
By clicking on the Track Awards button – if you are logged in with your Google account – the flight will be added to the list of tracked flights. Google will notify you by email when the lowest ticket price is available.
If the price moves, you will receive an email alert. Not only for the flight(s) you are following, but also for the ones you are not following but which might be of interest to you (similar schedules or nearby airports)!
The Google Flights tool is improving month after month by providing more services: indication of the type of aircraft, seat comfort, type of business class cabin, the possibility to search for flights with multiple reservations and price monitoring.
In short, you will have understood, it is an essential tool during your search for flight tickets.
And that doesn’t stop you from looking for those flights through your banking rewards program (BMO Rewards, TD Rewards…). You can then pay with your points.
