It has generic fields like Round Trip or One way. But it also give option for multi-city which is generally not present in other tools. There is an option of selecting the class(default is economy) and number of passengers. You can input the departure city and arrival city and the departure date and return date depending upon whether it is one way or round trip.  You can change the default currency from Menu at top left near Flights

  4. Choice of separate tickets: Under More, you will find an option to buy separate tickets for departure and return.
  5. Displays cheapest flight option: The most important one I like. Just click on the Departure date.  A calendar will open up as belowGoogle Flights Tool BarUnder each date you will see Price. The lower prices are marked in green. This price includes both return fare as well if Round trip is chosen and is based on number of passengers. Personally, I prefer choosing 1 adult which is default to compare fares. If you click on the arrow, you can see prices of future months as well. Now once you choose a departure date on this calendar, it will provide you with info on the dates which will give you least fare.
  6. Choice of destination: If you have traveled a number of places and are unsure of where to go, just enter the departure city and the dates, it will give you options for most favorable travel destinations.
