About Travel Analytics

The Travel Analytics Center mission is to empower partners, large and small, in the travel and accommodation industries to rapidly respond to dynamic environments using Google’s powerful travel demand and performance data.

We accomplish this by offering a series of dashboards that answer the following questions:

  • What destinations are trending?
  • Where are people traveling from?
  • How far in advance are people looking to travel?
  • How well are routes performing?
  • To what extent is my brand Top of Mind?

Our data comes from general Google.com searches, Google Flights Searches, Hotel Ads, and Things-to-Do. The data is heavily processed and anonymized to ensure relevancy and privacy.

Travel Analytics Center is available only to our partners in the travel and accommodation industry. If you are interested in becoming a partner, contact your Google account manager.
