You Can Now Book Your Travel Plans Through Instagram.

The photo-sharing platform announced new action buttons that let users make bookings, purchases, and reservations directly through the app.

Instagram provides a wealth of travel inspiration for the service’s 500 million daily active users. Now, the photo-sharing service is rolling out a series of new tools that will make it easier than ever for users to not just discover destinations that pique their interests, but to actually book visits to those places as well.

On May 8, Instagram announced new action buttons on business profiles that will allow users to “book,” “get tickets,” “reserve,” or “start order”—all without ever leaving the app. (Yes, that means you can make a dinner reservation or buy event tickets straight from a business profile then continue scrolling through your feed.)

To provide these new options, the Facebook-owned company is partnering with several third-party services, including GrubHub, Eventbrite, OpenTable, SevenRooms, Fandango, Yelp Reservations, and others.
