Google Looks Into Expanding Into Online Travel Services – The Consumerist

May 9

Google just loves being helpful – and being the go-to source for anything and everything you could ever wish or desire. Which is why it’s not surprising that new reports are saying Google is extending its long arm into the online travel business, and could be in talks to acquire fare-shopping developers ITA Software.

USA Today says Google is looking into paying as much as $1 billion for the company, which works on software for online travel sites like Bing Travel and Kayak. Those search sites offer a fare-only service to compare rates on flights and hotels, as opposed to sites like Orbitz and Expedia, which take consumers through the reservation process as well.
