If you found Google’s Trips app quite useful for planning out trips, unfortunately, the company seems to be replacing that with a new travel site. The aptly named google.com/travel brings the tools you’ve used in Trips into this website. Using Android’s Material Design, the sleek-looking site will show you all your past and potential trips along with “Popular destinations.” You used to have access to this feature through Search, too. But here’s a more visually appealing update. The left sidebar shows links to Explore, Packages, Flights, and Hotels. The site also gives you an aggregate of different airline and accommodation results.

The Trips section of the site has a timeline feature that you can edit. You will soon be able to manually add new reservations and see what the weather will be like at the top of the site for the days you’ll be traveling. Aside from having related searches, saved places, and tracked flights, you’ll soon be able to see viewed hotels in this page as well as feature travel articles, upcoming events, popular restaurants, and suggested day plans.
