Microsoft has released an add-in for Microsoft Outlook that gives you one click access to Bing Travel Tools to help you plan any travel you may have coming up.
Researching travel options can be challenging. It takes time to review all the options and determine the best time to fly, what airline has the lowest fares, and where you will stay at your destination. Bing Travel makes these tasks easier by processing large amounts of travel related data and presenting it in ways that help travelers make better decisions.
The Bing Travel add-in puts this technology in the place where many people spend a large part of their day – in Outlook. Just by clicking the Bing Travel button in the Add-Ins menu, or right-clicking in your calendar, you’ll have access to Bing Travel’s decision making tools and all your favorite online travel agencies and airlines.
