Google+ About - Hopper Travel - Travel Inspiration, Trip Discovery, & Vacation Planning on


Flight pricing is highly complex and opaque, so travelers often don't have the information they need to get the best deals on flights. Hopper provides insightful, data-driven research to help travelers make better decisions about where to go, and when to fly and buy.

At Hopper, we use data sets comprising billions of flight prices to help travelers find the right destination for their budget and feel confident that they’re getting the best possible deal.

Hopper was founded in 2007, is based in Boston and Montreal, and is backed by Brightspark, Atlas Venture and OMERS Ventures.
