The Nostradamus of Airfaire
Let’s get something straight: experiences are the best gifts, and there’s no better experience than a trip. Generally speaking, people refrain from gifting travel due to the elevated costs of airfare, but what if you could choose when you’ll like to travel and get someone to tell you if you should buy now or wait for the fare price to drop? Wouldn’t it be ideal to save a few bucks and use them to upgrade your stay or visit a phenomenal restaurant? Let us tell you this exists, and its called Hopper.
Hopper is an smartphone app compatible with IOS and Android that tells you when is the best time to buy your flight. Thanks to the power of big data analytics, Hopper’s algorithm makes calculations based in trillions of available flights to predict changes in airfare. Simply log in and search for a trip by tapping dates on the color-coded calendar. Then, the algorithm will make a prediction about when your flight will be cheapest. If the app says WAIT, just tap on the binoculars to “watch” this trip and let the app keep an eye on that trip for you and send you notifications the instant prices change. If the app says BUY, prices aren’t going any cheaper. You may choose your flights and book with just a few taps and swipes. Hopper will get a $5 cut for acting as your booking agent.
With over 17 million downloads since launch in 2015 and several awards from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and even Apple, Hopper is definitely a must-have app in your phone. Stop texting and start browsing for that trip that your significant other has been dying to make. We guarantee you’ll win Christmas this way!
