Okay I’m going to be honest I’ve had Hopper downloaded and been “watching” flights for probably a year and a half and never actually booked anything until this week. If you have no idea what Hopper is….it’s an app that monitors prices of flights and hotels during your desired dates or even flexible dates.
What I Like About the App
You can put in one ways, round trips, even hotels and dates and it will predict if the prices will go up or down. If you allow the notifications, it will tell you to buy now and they don’t predict lower prices in the future.
I basically put in every and any flight and haven’t had much success booking in time until now. I even put it just ideas that I’m not super serious about booking just to keep a pulse on prices. I think it hasn’t worked in my favor for the year and a half I’ve had it is because I get anxious and plan things way in advance so I don’t always wait it out as long as I probably could to save more money. But, this week I got a notification that PHX to OGG (Maui) was $166 for a one way. THAT’S RIGHT. Only $332 roundtrip which is less than I would pay to go to Ohio. DONE. I booked through the app and there were NO booking fees, which is amazing. I got the confirmation email shortly after.
Most of you voted “no” you don’t use it on my Instagram poll tonight. I recommend downloading it here
I’m interested do you have any success stories with Hopper? If not, download it and let me know what you think in the comments below!
