For example, when we receive an email from an airline, Gmail tracks it and place an appointment on the calendar automatically with all the details of the flight: date, time, flight number and airport.
The same goes for hotel reservations. It uses the same system of acknowledgment of reservations in accommodation and also shows it in the calendar with your day of arrival, departure or the location of the hotel.
Now, Google Maps will use all that information collected in our Gmail to recognize full trips. Inside the Google Maps application We will have a section called Reservations Where we will see our next destinations.
Organize all flight and hotel reservations to have all the details in one place. In addition, it will incorporate a direct button that will open the maps and provide us with the route to follow to go to the airport or the hotel.
As Google itself has published, This information will be accessible even when we do not have an Internet connection. In case we are in a foreign country and we do not have a contracted data rate.
