After Google revamped its mobile travel search results last month, Tnooz reports Google Flights has now added new search filters.

With the updated Google Flights website features, users do not have to have exact dates, or even a specific destination to start planning their next trip.

The new filters let users search by continents when they choose the “Place” tab, and even narrow their travel options by twelve different “Interests,” including “adventure travel” and “honeymoon.”

The following search for “Beaches” in “Europe” during “June” returned more than 15 results, all listed in travel cards with specific dates, prices and photos.

Selecting one of the listed travel destinations delivers a window with flight and hotel options along with prices.
