The cockroach against the giant. Will Rome2Rio.com beat in a head in head battle Google Flights, Google Maps, and Google Hotel Meta-Search? Will Rome2Rio give better value using its travel search engine and even save costs on your next travel in comparison to the Google travel planning and booking tools?
Rome2Rio against GOOGLE – Conclusion
Google’s mission statement is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. My conclusion to the article is that the cockroach beat the giant in its own game. Rome2rio is a better travel search engine than the 3 google products it run against. Rome2rio thinks about the person who is looking to make the travel plans. The options, prices and routes are presented clearly enabling the traveler to make an informed decision based on all options. On the other hand Google Flights and Google Hotel Meta-Search beat booking.com in the hotel price and Skyscanner in the flight price. This only comes to show that Google uses its search engine capabilities to find the best deal. It immediate presence at the top of the page will lead to growing numbers of users that will opt for Google at the expense of the Bookind.com and Skyscanner and Expedia.
So in a nutshell – Rome2rio is a better comprehensive planning and booking tool, Google is cheaper.
