All URL shorteners are now banned on SE sites. However, this includes goo.gl, which is used by default by Google Maps for sharing both directions and points of interest. Can we get this unbanned on Travel.SE only?
General goo.gl-shortened URLs are still banned in post bodies network-wide (and also in titles, comments, tags and flags on SO).
However, I've added an exception for goo.gl/maps only that will allow these to go through. As much as I'd prefer to see folks use the expanded version of these URLs, posting from mobile when these are the easiest URLs to grab makes that an unnecessary burden, and doesn't really add much to the results anyway.
