If you are using Google Travel for your travel destination, Google has a new portal for you.

While travel has been slow due to the pandemic, Google has added new tools that focus on coronavirus-related information. Google is aiming to help travelers stay safe and informed with new features for its Google Travel platform. The portal will allow users to search vacations, flights hotels or things to do while in the area, in a blog post the company announced on Thursday.

The new features alert users to the updated COVID-19 case counts in their destination of choice, and informs travelers as to whether or not their chosen resort or hotel offers free cancellations.

“The uncertainty of COVID-19 makes it hard to navigate travel decisions. We’ll continue to share the most relevant information so you can make informed decisions and travel safely when the time comes,” Google said in its blog post.

Google previously introduced driving alerts in Google Maps to similarly notify travelers about COVID-19 restrictions and checkpoints when passing through new cities.
