TRAVEL TOOLS

Travel Tools

A unique focus of travel tools that are useful for the traveller from booking flights to transportation to/from the airport and navigating around the airport.

Flight Searches

Search Flight Tools Google has a great tool to search for flights based on specific criteria.  All you have to do is insert the trip information. Google would provide updated information which can be sorted by criteria such as duration, departure time and prices.

After pressing the calendar view, you will be provided with a view of fares for the next two months. This is very useful as a comparison.

Example from Distance.to (Hong Kong to Chicago). It shows the actual flight miles on this polar route.
