Google has always made it possible for you to travel randomly across the internet, thanks to its 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button.

Now it's extending that to the real world.

A new update to Google Flight Search has made it possible to let the search giant determine not just the cost and timing of your air travel, but also the destination.

Using the tool you can set budget and time limits to your journey, then hit the 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button to get a random travel suggestion that fits those criteria.

In a blog post Google said:

"If you’re looking for some inspiration, you can click on the map to enter a full-screen exploring experience. You can pan the entire world and see all of the different cities you can fly to, see photos of the top attractions for each city and see how the price changes based on holidays, day of the week or time of year.

If you’re feeling really adventurous, try the “I’m Feeling Lucky” feature. It’s kind of like a travel slot machine. Simply select the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button from within the expanded map and we’ll give you ideas of where to go. You can add price or time limits and press the button as many times as you want -- we’ll keep suggesting destinations you might like."

It's a neat tool, and also comes with a full-screen exploration mode and a method to restrict travel within certain regions.
