It's that time of the year again to start planning a trip to see relatives for the holidays. Google Flights is aiming to make that process much more simpler for you.

It's a flight finder, price tracker and advice-giver all rolled into one. Google Flights helps you find the cheapest flight to your destination. If you don't have a set destination -- Google Flights shows you a map of the world with plane ticket prices to places everywhere.

This holiday season, Google Flights wants to make sure you don't miss the good travel deals. It will notify you when prices are increasing, and you can save your flight searches to continue another day.

Google published a blog post detailing some of the more finer points of the software, complete with easy-to-understand pictures. It's not just about flights -- there's information on available hotels and pricing as well.

Maybe this year booking holiday travel plans won't be so stressful after all.
