When issuing destination-related queries users sometimes include on or more constraints within the query. Even though a search engine can be used to search for data regarding each constraint individually, users need to integrate the individual results manually based on separate searches for different types of data. This disclosure describes techniques to retrieve and present search results for destination-related queries based on user-specified constraints present within a user query. The results are obtained by performing separate searches based on various constraints specified in the user query and combining and filtering the results to include only those results that match all constraints. The results are sorted based on specific criteria prior to presentation to the user.
