Google Flights Bonus $500.00 Check – Google Flights users in the United States may soon be able to receive a bonus $500 check. This month, the tech juggernaut started the test program. It indicates that users will now receive compensation from Google Flights if the cost of their reservation-made flight decreases.

Google Could Be Setting Itself Up for Failure With New Flight Price 'Guarantees'

In the world of online vacation planning, Google is making a daring move. The digital behemoth is testing a price guarantee for reservations on airlines. Now, some flights leaving American airports will include a money-back guarantee. (Photo by gizmodo.com)

A Google spokesperson declined to provide information on the number of flights covered by the price guarantee, but added that no trips departing more than 60 days from the current date will display the logo. Regarding the payments, Google is covering the airfare rebates entirely on its own, with no assistance from the airlines.

What is Google Flights Rebate Program? How does it works?

Through its new “price guarantee” pilot program, which was unveiled in April, Google Flights guarantees to pay customers the difference if their ticket price decreases at any point after purchase. The airfare reimbursement option is only available for one-way and round-trip flights (not multi-city flights) departing from the US and marked with a colorful pricing label.

With rebates set at $500 per person per year, the refund is still valid if the price reduces and subsequently rises. You won’t receive a refund if the flight is canceled or rescheduled. But it seems that there aren’t many flights that are actually covered by Google’s new price guarantee.

Over the course of a six-month period, Insider looked through hundreds of flights departing from New York to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Miami, and Cancun but was unable to locate a single ticket that qualified.

Google Flights Bonus $500.00 Check: Important things to remember

To qualify for the rebate, tickets must be purchased through “Book on Google” on Google Flights with a US billing address and phone number. After your first flight, you’ll be alerted if the cost of your ticket drops at any point before takeoff.

The difference should be credited to your Google Pay account within 48 hours if you download the Google Pay app and use the same email for Google Pay and Google Flights.

An eye-catching pricing badge will be shown on each qualified flight. The emblem means that Google is quite certain that the price won’t go any lower. Make sure you have the app because claimants will be sent money to their Google Pay accounts.
