I love it 😍
Not trustworthy
by Apete1925 on 2019/06/24 13:17
Do not use this app. I trusted that flights would go down from $1000. After weeks of telling me to wait for airfare to drop it suddenly advise to book now at $1500 each.
The best app
by Granma4 on 2019/06/24 12:57
Thanks this app for me is amazing.
by nenayepez on 2019/06/24 03:44
This is the best traveling app, I cannot believe I didn’t use this earlier. It’s so easy to use and it gives you so much info. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE CREATORS
A must-have for travel planning!
by AuburnR7 on 2019/06/23 18:47
Even if you’re planning a trip a few months out or want to take a spontaneous trip, this app helps find the best price and day to go. We found a great direct flight to Ireland for St. Patty’s Day for $300 round trip! We went for 10 days and we wouldn’t have jumped on this amazing opportunity without Hopper. Thank you!
by Erachuvanee on 2019/06/23 12:53
Everytime I filter my flight search to nonstop it tells me that I’m not connected to the internet...when I’m connected on both my data and WiFi. Please fix. Love the app overall.
Retired Army loves structure still
by Shaunie.haynes on 2019/06/23 09:39
I love the alerts and the watches. I can awake and get the flight price I need and save.
by annawouldgo on 2019/06/22 04:51
I never leave reviews and felt the need to after what hopper did for me. I had booked a flight with EVA air through hopper that got cancelled due to the airlines’ pay strike, which was announced 2 days before my flight was supposed to fly. EVA air was no help whatsoever with fake helpline numbers, dead-end links on their website, and vague emails. I emailed Hopper with a request for a new flight and within 5 hours got a response with same-day options at no extra cost and they updated my new booking right away. When the airline doesn’t have your back, you can trust Hopper to help out.
by stephgeske on 2019/06/22 04:46
I’ve used and loved hopper successfully in the past, but I’m done. Planned my family’s summer trip using the app, waited to get a notification to buy...... Before, it was $284 full price. Said to wait, it’d go down. Log on today, prices have jumped $100 and they’re still telling me to wait! Now they’re $400 each, and $300 is the discount! Are you serious?? I’d have been better off buying originally elsewhere! Hopper ruined my family’s summer trip. Never using the app again.
by kae9017 on 2019/06/22 02:07
Awesome way to save money
It is ok, I wish a can filter our Sprit!
by sartmn on 2019/06/22 00:53
I don’t fly Spirit and I want to be able to filter it out. This app does a good job of finding cheap flights but 90% of the time these flights are in Spirit Airlines and we don’t fly Spirit ... I want to be able to select preferred airlines or at least filter out unacceptable airlines.
by KingSauxey on 2019/06/21 21:46
Its so simple and easy to use. I already recommended it to my friends
by Ryan-Colorado on 2019/06/21 21:23
Can’t live without!
by Krysta rose on 2019/06/21 17:58
I have been booking international and domestic flights with Hopper for a couple years now, and just wow! I recommend it to everyone I know. It’s so easy to use. I will never book a flight without its free, helpful aids ever again. :)
Don’t Use To Book Your Flights
by PutttDadddy on 2019/06/20 18:48
The app is good for tracking flight prices but a nightmare when it comes to actually booking them. If you book your flight through Hopper you’ll end up on insanely restrictive flights without warning until you get to the airport. Use the app to track flights then go to the airline website to buy it. Save yourself the headache.
Easier than Booking with the airline
by DFG6766 on 2019/06/20 16:10
I’ve just booked my 3rd trip through Hopper and am starting to lose the dread I feel every time I’ve had to book travel in the past. Aside from alerting me to great fares, once I’ve chosen my flights the booking process is completed in a couple of clicks. No more entering traveler data and payment info over and over. Love it!
Poor assistance
by Rita Shepperd on 2019/06/20 11:22
Predicted that my flight would decrease by $37 by a certain date. On that particular date it increased $97. The app then said buy now. Deleting now!
Prices twice as expensive
by Searchy2 on 2019/06/20 02:45
Very bad. Same exact price twice as expensive as on other websites!
by BBGBVB on 2019/06/20 00:50
Fast easy & convenient!!
Helpful app!
by M.Galaleldin on 2019/06/19 22:44
Saves you some money and easy to use
Stay Away unless you want to pay double
by Lu c5 on 2019/06/19 14:27
I used this Ap to watch a flight on a recommendation of a local TV news anchor. It was easy to put in everything. The price was 300 about 3 weeks ago but the Ap said to keep waiting as the price was going down later. I did as instructed. 2 weeks later I bought a ticket for 600. Thanks for costing me 300 hopper!
Seeing red literally
by Guyyjjjgyuuhhhj on 2019/06/19 00:47
My screen went red during final payment why? Praying everything is right because I can’t freaking SEE anything. 😡
We’re Packing Our Bags
by Jamaicaimikal on 2019/06/18 23:56
This is the best and simplest way to book flights! Thank you Hopper!! 😀
Bad prediction
by theNaivestPersonInTheWorld on 2019/06/18 17:47
When ticket was $800 it told us to wait and buy later because prices will come down. Then after two weeks it said, buy ASAP because the prices will go up after today! When I went to the app and prices were already $1200! We ended up paying $400 more because we trusted their prediction.
Really good app!
by PRIJ91 on 2019/06/18 00:24
Hopper is super easy to use and you actually find really good deals on it as well. Just be sure to check details carefully about things like baggage. Other than that, you’re good. I’ve booked a couple of trips already and I’m happy with everything. Can’t comment on customer service because I haven’t had any issues yet.
A quick, no-nonsense travel buddy
by twisted74 on 2019/06/17 14:59
I’ve used Hopper for years and would recommend it for being easy to use and having just enough features to make it a must-have travel app.
Connection Trouble
by SmallTownTeacher on 2019/06/17 10:57
I have two trips planned this year and would really like the ease Hopper offers when it comes to finding flights; however, every time I try to use the app the message “Uh oh. Connection trouble!” pops up. Everything else works perfectly fine on my phone so I’m not sure what the issue is.
Terrible! Do not trust!
by JayPorschia on 2019/06/17 01:08
I got the app to search a flight to Atlanta. The lowest flight was about $150. The app told me to wait, the price would go down $40 in the next 4 days. However, 3 days later the lowest flight is $250 and the app now said the price will go down $70 by tomorrow. Now I just got an email hours later saying $250 is the best price I will probably get and I should book before the price rises! Without the terrible guidance of this app I would have booked my flight last week for $150. Now I’ll be paying over $250.
Download it
by Shoolu Dan on 2019/06/16 23:06
I’ve booked so many tickets using hopper. I especially love that I watch flights and get notifications when tickets are low or predicted to go down in price.
This App is Baller
by gippit on 2019/06/16 20:42
I fly a lot because I'm a travelling college student, and I'm always trying to be frugal because again, college. This app is awesome, and my parents hate it because they're so proactive. They'll assume I'm just not coming home because I'm using this app to watch flights, and then I get to gloat when the wait pays off and hopper says "book now." In your face dad, I saved 67 dollars doin it my way. Young man comin home. Just booked my vacation too, saved 30 bucks more than my sister. Everyone say "Thank you hopper!"
Do not trust this app
by lazygetter on 2019/06/16 16:58
I have tried to use this app 5-6 times and each time I had to change my plans The app tells you to "wait" for a better price. One day the price goes up and then it says "book now before prices go up". And it usually happens when you are closer to your travel date. Wow isn't that just great. I'm glad I booked my Seattle flight for $308 without listening to it cz today the app said "book now" at $368. Wow right? But I'm afraid I lost my Cancun vacation. I canceled my flights trusting hopper, and now prices have gone up. I don't think they will come down soon. And this has happened last year and the year before too. I thought I'd give it a shot again but I guess not.
Super user friendly
by JenSantoato on 2019/06/15 19:44
I love this app!! So easy to use and always have the best prices on everything!!!
Great app
by Cherize on 2019/06/15 18:11
I found a basic economy flight from American Airlines for $70 while the actual AA website was for $130. Thankful for this app!!
by lyndamaywert on 2019/06/15 17:58
This app on my phone was super user friendly. Can’t wait to go on our trip‼️
Found a ticket 1/2 the price of what they said was lowest
by Nash Momma on 2019/06/15 15:44
😂😂 this app is a joke. We ended up finding tickets at literally half the price elsewhere (hoppers lowest was 1300 - we found tickets for 650) I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone.
Love Hopper!!
by LilSpiker on 2019/06/15 14:37
It’s so easy to find and book a flight! Love it!!
Super helpful
by LionessBeth on 2019/06/15 13:11
I’ve booked several trips on here and I’ve gotten the best rates and have not had an issue. I love the accessibility and convenience of booking a flight through this app. When I had my flight cancelled due to weather, I was able to still deal with the airline I was going to be flying with, and treated as though I purchased my flight through the airline. I recommend this app to all my friends who are trying to book a flight.
Not using again
by not hooper on 2019/06/15 11:20
I downloaded this app so I could get cheaper flights. The one I looked at first was 150 the first day but said it was going to drop so I waited. It never went lower. It only doubled in price. Thanks Hooper.
Best prices
by J Gideon on 2019/06/15 05:24
Is there a way to list available flights only before booking info is entered?
Cheap and easy.
by Jilly71909 on 2019/06/15 02:22
App: easy to use and has a painless and seamless registration. I needed a 1-way flight in 2 weeks from Phoenix and OKC. I typically go with Southwest since it’s usually cheapest for the flights I ordinarily need. I compared Hopper’s prices and was a bit shocked to see that their AA flight was cheaper than Southwest’s. (And they beat Kayak, too). Definitely worthy of the download! ❤️
Price change only good for 7 days
by Gia TG on 2019/06/14 22:36
My price changed just shy of 7 days and it’s non refundable.
They are Not correct
by ATOMIC.E on 2019/06/14 16:38
They are scams! I made a reservation once and paid. But they sent me an email. I have to change the flight. I exchanged by phone. I wanted United but he pushed Evaair better. I said United three times! When. Don't decide my flight on your own! . The price has risen as much as $ 300. what? Between few minutes. Is it all right to let these villains go wild?
Charging issue
by Jejdidb on 2019/06/14 14:38
It has some glitches when you reach the payment section.
Great app
by FahimAhmed on 2019/06/14 05:09
Love this app. Could we possible add a filter for departure/arrival time? Most cheap flights alerts are at off hours. I'd love "cheap" alerts at my designated time ranges. Thanks for the great work guys!
This Rabbit Rocks
by eifjglrlw on 2019/06/14 02:30
Easy to use, beautiful interface, accurate prices
Bad purchase experience
by Lucas futuro ex-assinante on 2019/06/13 21:43
I usually use this app to discover the best purchase date to my tickets. I travel 3 to 4 times a year and have never used it before to buy a ticket, only to learn the best date to buy it. Today I decided to give them a chance because of all the good work they’ve done for me helping me saving money. I chose the date, and bought it. 10 minutes later I received an email asking for my photo ID, a picture of my credit card, and a photo of me holding my ID. Seriously??? Aren’t you guys an startup that helps to make my purchase experience better? I felt like I was in the 90’ again. Always used United App, AA App, Expedia and even Kayak app and NEVER had to do that. What a great purchase experience guys!!
Family union
by Godchild45 on 2019/06/13 13:09
Always let me when great deals
App changed the state I would arrive in
by Michael Hensley on 2019/06/13 04:49
I waited on prices to drop on flights, and when I received my notification for an ideal booking the app tried to send me New Jersey instead of New York. Because I had waited for prices to drop and was not alerted of the change in location booking prices are astronomically more expensive for the flight I need. This app put me in a worse place than I would have been in just googling flights. I strongly advise no one uses this service.
by gsuspiece on 2019/06/13 00:46
Cheaper rates love how fast it is
by four-leggedmommy on 2019/06/11 23:07
Thank you so much HOPPER! You just saved me over $80 by notifying me of a reduced fare! On my way to see my newest twin grandkids!!!
Not cool.
by JLFlake on 2019/06/11 05:38
This app is a straight SCAM! Every time I would choose a flight and put in all my info it would change at the last moment saying the flight had “suddenly gone up in price” but when I would go out and back to the beginning the flight would still be there at the original price. I tried this several times and every time it would change price right before booking. This was so upsetting to me, especially because I went to another app after and immediately got the original price offered to me with no problems. This is NOT a cool way to get extra money from people Hopper, you definitely lost a good customer today who goes on a lot of trips.
Love this app
by deedee.rn on 2019/06/10 23:28
I find the best deals here & its so great to have it watching the fares for you. Simple process!
I love hopper!!!!
by Modest Bel on 2019/06/10 20:01
I am sooo pleased with this app “Hopper”and its prices. Traveling can now be a hobby to me because of the low prices.
Very unsatisfied
by Klucero1120 on 2019/06/10 18:30
I feel conned with how flight deals are advertised. I was shown an outstandingly reasonable rate to fly to Hawaii which I tried to book and after I entered in my passenger info and credit card info, I was then told that flight prices had “suddenly” went up, at least $100 more than what I was originally shown. But hey I guess that’s how these travel apps work, bate and reel with deception
by Crackershaq on 2019/06/10 02:19
This app is amazing. My co-worker introduced me to this and I’ve bought all my flights through this app ever since. Thank you Hopper!
Watch this Trip
by gigemwilliams on 2019/06/09 20:49
I was told to watch this trip for it to go down and while I waited, it went UP almost $200.😡
No $ Saved
by Wuertyzadfghabcdezxxyy on 2019/06/09 13:48
App worked well with periodic updates on the status of when I should buy my flights but not enough granularity & ended up costing us $60 more than if we’d just bought tickets when we first started watching them on the app. That’s a fail. I’ll delete it & go with gut instinct from now on.
Awesome app.
by astaa514 on 2019/06/09 11:24
I always use this to know when to wait. I’ve gotten great tickets for flights on this, at leaaaasstt 10 times. It just gives me more awareness of trends etc
Amazing Customer Support
by Bossy kiwi on 2019/06/09 09:59
Downloaded Hopper by a friends request and have used it a few times to get good prices on flights. Last used it to book a flight in Miami, but due to checkpoint closures at SEATAC I ended up missing my flight, Hopper’s customer support was super helpful and contacted me right away when I reached out to them, and even gone ahead looked for other flights for me. The airline ended up being understanding and booking me on the next flight, but I was still blown away by how helpful and caring the support staff was. Thank you so much Hopper :)
Hop to it...
by DéjàZoo on 2019/06/09 04:04
I love how I can set a trip alert and forget about it. Hopper alerted me weeks later for the cheapest flight for my upcoming trip to San Juan. I got just the schedule I needed on Delta and much cheaper than the ‘discount airlines’. Hopper has been the best way for me to find the cheapest flights and lets me know when it is the best price I am going to find. Thanks.
Great fares!! Like no other 💯%

by bchiclet on 2019/06/08 16:27
Interesting App. However I live in Atlanta, it does not appear they are included. Best to you!
by BenSux505 on 2019/06/07 20:38
I booked an international flight through Hopper two months ahead of my travel date. Less than two days before my scheduled departure I got an email telling me that I had to leave a day early (aka 20 hours from the time I got the email). They were impossible to get any straight answers from. They blamed both airlines involved for flight changes, saying that the airlines would not allow them to change my flight back to the date I had booked. I eventually called the airline directly and was told that Hopper never submitted the change request. This app is a ripoff and it’s truly unbelievable the kind of customer service that I received. I will never be booking through them again.
by Cen and Ben on 2019/06/07 07:51
Best hassle free, no pressure, all good vibes App! Worth the download, made finding tickets as easy as a walk in the park!
Cheapest flights I could find
by PTJIII on 2019/06/07 06:20
Searched for three days, most apps and websites were $900-$1000 for a round trip ticket. Friend recommended this app and got a ticket for half the price. Will recommend to all my friends and family!
Took my money and flight was NOT booked
by marvvyyy on 2019/06/07 05:43
I was recommended this app by a friend to purchase our flight to Miami coming up. I downloaded the app, created an account, and attempted to purchase two tickets. The app kicked me out, made me recreate my account all over again and charged me $600 (more than one ticket and less than the two tickets I was trying to buy) and did not book either flight. Now I have a $600 charge that I need to dispute with the airline and NO flight booked. What a way to start my vacation. Thanks for the headache.
Great deal
by 24lal on 2019/06/06 23:48
Love it , it kept me up to date on all my watched trips. Got a great price!
(Almost) Scammed on a flight
by JenJudy on 2019/06/06 18:29
I found a flight with Hopper then went to the airline’s website and found the exact flight for $40+ cheaper. This app may be good at predicting increases and decreases, but it didn’t get me the best deal.
Doesn’t offer lowest prices lol
by Mattk1234333yygx578; on 2019/06/06 04:24
I bought a plane ticket then saw this on the App Store and their lowest price was $225 more than the tic I just bought . LOL
Doesn’t work
by CINDYMDONG on 2019/06/06 00:29
I just downloaded the app and nothing works. Nothing is loading and I have WiFi connection and my phone is fully functional. The app keeps telling me to reload the page but it does not refresh.
by Michael beierle on 2019/06/05 21:24
Get quick notifications and booked a trip for $100 less so I decided to go for it!
Bad experience
by nj200277 on 2019/06/05 17:37
I would actually give 0 stars if that was possible. I made a reservation for my friend and her child and we had an issue where we needed to change the name of one of the passengers as the nickname was used to make the reservation. Hopper provided minimal support, only via email and basically showed how much they don’t care to help their customers.
Not happy
by 1ejdavis on 2019/06/05 13:44
Booked my flight in the wrong place
I love Hopper
by Tabthesupermom on 2019/06/04 20:18
I love that they alert me when a good deal is coming. I have used this app several times and it has saved me hundreds of dollars each time. Very user-friendly such an amazing app
Great deal and easy to navigate
by Mr. YaoH on 2019/06/04 01:11
I like this app it is is to navigate and they have great deals
Love hopper
by Offciallytati on 2019/06/03 23:52
Hopper is the best for on the go trackers As a younger traveler, this apps makes it so easy to find the best deals in real time. I would recommend to any one of any age!
by Wood.pensolie on 2019/06/03 21:59
This is exactly what I need these days when buying flight tickets
Hopper is a scam
by SpinRBoi on 2019/06/02 23:03
Look elsewhere. Just use Expedia, save yourself the hidden $5 fee. Hopper charged me 3 nights for a single night booking, then blamed Expedia. Expedia tells me I have to deal with Hopper. Hopper has no customer service and was rude in refusing.
deliberately confusing
by klaygal on 2019/06/02 02:51
they don’t allow you to book on the app. they send you a link. somehow the flight i picked changed from my choice to another flight going to same destination. completely different from what i wrote down and chose. problem solved only by losing entire payment from first booking and rebooking. second half on exact same flight but had to pay again. beware! tricky!
Great app but is currently not working.
by aqwati15 on 2019/06/02 00:26
I love this app and I use it too purchase all of my flights for the last 3 years. I travel all the time. I’ve been unable to book a flight for the last 8 hours. I can type in my card info but there is no button to save the information and book a flight.
Great rates
by bossasdoss on 2019/06/01 19:19
Amazing! Super cheap and easy to use. Love this app.
Trust the app
by SmackThis on 2019/06/01 15:06
Trust this app. Works well
Missed out on the best flight price
by drea0117 on 2019/06/01 13:48
I just deleted this app. I have a trip coming up and decided to try the app to see when to buy a flight. For the last month and a half I was told by the app to wait to purchase as ticket prices would go lower, and like an idiot I waited. Of course they never got lower as the app said they would. Prices only climbed and now prices are $200 more than they were, and now today, the app is saying to purchase now. Never again.
Must have app for travelers!
by AnnaSFG818 on 2019/06/01 12:32
Easy to use! Affordable prices and if the price is high just put the price alert and as soon as the price drops the app will notify you !!!! Amazing application!!!a MUST HAVE!
Canceled our flight for no reason

Made me pay MORE $200 MORE!!!
by luisalovesposh on 2019/05/31 14:44
App told me to wait wait wait and now I’m paying $200 MORE than I wanted to spend 😡
Were are all the flights
by Collins2 on 2019/05/31 04:50
I’m not sure what the hype is. I found a fair for a trip to Utah through good as far out as September. I want to watch and see if a better rate would come along. Well according to hopper that flight doesn’t even exist??
by Roperita67890 on 2019/05/31 01:09
Totally took all the anxiety out of booking a flight. This is the app I’ve been waiting for all these years!!!
Deleting App
by Malley8732 on 2019/05/30 21:01
My first experience will be my last. Was booking for three separate flights flying out of three separate locations. I followed Hopper’s prediction. I am now paying more for my flights. Back to Google flights - this app cost me money.
Exclude airlines?
by Nvdjn on 2019/05/30 14:04
I couldn’t find an easy way to provide app feedback in the app so I’m writing it here. I typically use Kayak to estimate when to buy flights. It’s been pretty accurate. I thought I’d try this one as a cross-reference, and I’m disappointed that I can’t exclude certain airlines. Some of the cheapest tickets the app is “waiting for” are on airlines I would NEVER fly. I will probably stop using this app until/unless this is a filter option.

Hopper review
by WaveKing22 on 2019/05/30 00:23
This was the cheapest flight I have booked by far 🔥
So easy
by Uninformed observer on 2019/05/29 19:48
I book flights way in advance for our kids to get home from college or last minute for personal and no matter what, it is simple. Thanks for your help
Hopper is awesome

Confirmed Booking

I love this App👍🏾
Can’t imagine flying without hoppin
by Big Nimz on 2017/09/23 10:07
I have been using Hopper for more than a year now and I can’t imagine booking airfare without using it as a prediction tool. Hopper has saved us hundreds already by giving me push notifications when the lowest price is available. And so far it’s been 99% accurate for the flights we have booked. One time we flew to Mexico. I booked the flights. Then the next day I got a notification from Hopper that the prices dropped significantly so I was able to cancel and rebook for the savings. Also helped book flights to Aruba, Canada, Turks & Caicos and Iceland so far. Just a note here. Remember that not ALL airline information is listed in search engines like this and Kayak, especially when booking international flights. Domestic airlines such as Southwest and Delta also don’t appear so remember to do research and go directly to those airline websites. For example, for a recent trip Hopper showed cheapest was $250. But we booked for $200 on an airline that doesn’t list in Hopper or any other search engine like Kayak either. ALSO. I would recommend ALWAYS booking your flights DIRECTLY with the airline for many reasons. I don’t recommend booking via Hopper, Expedia, or any third party for many reasons. Main reason is that when you book directly you can handle things directly with the airline if you have any issues. Also. Sometimes the prices are even cheaper on the airlines website. Just do your research.
Prices not updated
by CSCP1972 on 2018/02/16 21:40
I downloaded this app to save money on a family trip to the Caribbean. I gave it 3 stars for the many tips given for cheapest flights. I found tickets for $461 and was ready to purchase since it stated that this was the lowest price available. When searching other sites and apps, Hopper had the cheapest price. So after filling out passenger information and going to the purchase page, a window pops up stating that prices went up $77 dollars. It then says choose different flights or continue purchase. I went back to change flights and the flights I had previously chosen were still at the $461 price! I then picked the next cheapest flight. Then it states prices went up over $100! I even restarted the app to see if prices got updated. Nope. It even has a little bunny hopping and checking for latest prices! No such luck there either. Update: The price didn’t go up if I tried purchasing one adult ticket. However, when I added other travelers including my kids, the prices goes up. Maybe it’s because of how many seats are available next to each other? It would be great if the app could let you know how many seats are left for each flight!
by Shawn Bethea on 2019/05/25 21:52
WARNING: Do not book through hopper. I would encourage you to follow the deals and book through the airline directly. Hopper offers no support for their consumers and places blame on the airline after booking. They do not do anything for the customer and instead make excuses for why they cannot help while continuing to pressure you to book again through their unreliable app. When I called for a refund or change in my flight, the rep stated she could not do either but could assist me with booking another flight through Hopper (of course). She then stated Hopper does not profit from anything consumers do, I then asked if Hopper was a nonprofit, to which she confirmed. Which is CLEARLY untrue. I asked to speak with a different representative multiple times , the rep continued to place me on long holds and return stating the same things she did before instead of just transferring me. After over an hour of the same process, she hung up on me. I’ve tweeted, messaged, Instagram’d this company and they continue to ignore me. They are the worst kind of company and the worst kind of people. I highly encourage you to do your research and book on your own. This is a trashy company with no kind of value for their customers.
The worst experience
by Emilmem on 2018/07/24 14:53
I should have read the review before ! Hopper app is a big con application. I was planning to fly from LA to Beijing. I called their customer service million times to ask about my ticket and no one answered. My ticket said LA -> Chengdu (18hr 40min) (one stop between, but unknown Chinese City) Chengdu -> Beijing. So what I found out at check in desk of Sichuan airline is that each Chinese city have different visa requirements. This unknown city has a policy of 24hr visa free policy, but Chengdu & Beijing have 72 hr visa free policy. So depending on your first stop of any Chinese city, that city’s policy applies for your entire trip !!! Now thinking back it makes sense why there’s no help line available right away. I even called their customer service desk few days before my flight to more find out this flight, but I was receiving “ Sorry there’s no one available to help” msg. No wonder this is a scam ticket and that’s why they make it non refundable and non changeable !
Hopper is a CON factory, never book from hopper
by Sanjay pandita on 2018/01/03 14:46
Hi all, My name is sanjay pandita . The hopper conned me so that i had to pay 600 $ more for my flight. When i complained they told me i responsible for visa even if they book my flight for any stop in between. They are conning people. I work in Tata Consultancy Services and have shared my story so that nobody from my company is Conned by them . Below is hoppers standard response so be aware , be informed and be safe. They wont bother to tell you this while booking tickets. They expect you to have visas for countries you never intended to visit so in order to make money they make stops at places that make visa mandatory but we as customers wont know it till we reach the boarding counter and then them come into pictures to con us. "I am so sorry to hear that your experience with Hopper was less than satisfactory - this is certainly not the experience we wish our users to have. Please understand that visa and immigration requirements are always 100% the user's responsibility, so I sincerely hope you don't come across this problem in the future. Please feel free to reach out to our support team with any further questions or concerns. We're always happy to help!"
No multi city/selective airlines shown
by Noggin9788663242170006 on 2018/09/30 16:25
Great concept but 2 major flaws with flights; 1. My main beef and why it’s 3/5, no multi-city option! This is a huge let down as multiple times I’ve needed to do multiple stops but it makes you do them one at a time which drastically raises the rate or you do multiple round trips and hope the times line up. Even on the support it recognizes that this isn’t available but suggests booking multiple one ways, for example a multi city between US-Japan-Vietnam-US is approx 1,300 on google multi city search where as for follow the hopper support directions the same flight pattern is 2,100. If the multi city is added I can definitely justify 5 stars but without it it just doesn’t match old fashion google (which also has price tracking) 2.Another lesser but still decent issue. Hopper excludes certain airlines that would have cheaper rates (spirit/frontier/ect.) many times I’ve gotten updates on flights only to find a cheaper flight offered by airlines not offered on here sometimes significantly cheaper.
by trussellsrt on 2019/03/07 17:28
Used the hopper to book our upcoming trip to Canada for the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Montreal! The app is easy to navigate. The information is in an easy to decipher format. The flights are often time not available on other travel websites like Expedia and kayak. If they are, the price is higher. I did have trouble one time trying to book our flights when I got to the payment page, the rabbit notified me that price had gone up $85 per person. This was out of my price range so I cancelled the booking whilst being quite upset. But I understand now that it is the name of the game with flights. After that experience last night, I got back on hopper this morning. I noticed that the flight I tried to book last night was still available for the original price I saw last night so I jumped on it! Got to the pay screen price increase so I got them booked! I will definitely be using hopper again!
Great customer service!
by Ashleyy134 on 2018/03/05 07:22
Seriously, this app / its employees are fantastic, some of the best customer service I’ve had. Recently I had to cancel a flight but was able to use most of the money from the canceled flight to a new flight. I thought I had to go through the airline to rebook my flight and it was going to cost $250-$300 extra, so I called hopper really late with a quick question there was no answer but I had the opportunity to leave a voicemail so I did. This morning when I woke up, I had an email with the answers I previously asked for in my voicemail along with the option to re-book with them, 3 emails later ( super easy and fast) my flight was rebooked and it only cost an extra $87. They handled everything for me and really took the anxiety out of the whole situation. Super grateful and will definitely be recommending this app to friends, family and even strangers!
Practical. Creative Interface. Try it!
by paul4791 on 2018/03/21 15:34
I've enjoyed organizing travel since 1985. I'm old enough to remember the printed Thomas Cook European train timetable, and the OAG handbook for US flights. Today, my favorite airfare search tool is the Matrix Web interface by ITA Software. There are, of course umpteen iOS apps for finding fares. Hopper is the only innovator I've seen lately. In particular, the calendar interface, with its intuitive traffic light color scheme (green = cheap, orange = more expensive, red = expensive), is the best I've seen. It reminds me of the traveler's calendar ("calendrier des voyageurs") from SNCF (French National Railways) and Air Inter/Air France. In those days, you tried to travel during the "période bleue" (blue period) in the little calendar leaflet that was published every quarter. Today, Hopper generates such a calendar dynamically, based on current fare data. Try it! The people who created it clearly know something about travel.
by accentaa on 2018/08/28 19:51
Best time saver for the best deals. No confusion about third party involvement, you get an airline confirmation # immediately, and hopper charges about $5 (I think) for their service. All costs are easy to identify - no surprises. Plus, I beat my frequent flyer hubby, with his Delta connections, out on price every time. I never go through the deep search for the best pricing anymore. It’s all right there; pick your price, dates, airline, and all the variables right there on the Hopper app. Plus you can even buy the extras at the same time (baggage, upgrades, etc.) Any limitations are explained fully as well - no surprises. They even have a spot on prediction process that suggests waiting for a better price or better buy now. As long as Hopper stays this thorough and convenient I’m staying a one-stop shopper with Hopper!
Not really worth it
by kirjava87 on 2018/08/27 15:46
I have heard a lot of people rave about Hopper and helpful it is. Honestly, except to watch how prices fluctuate it isn’t that helpful. The prices on the app are incorrect than what the airlines are showing. It doesn’t specify between classes. For example flying WoW to Iceland and Ireland, Wow offers your basic fare, one that includes a checked bag and a Comfy fare. You can’t tell the difference on Hopper, plus I found fares were actually cheaper on Wow than on Hopper. Google tracked flights has been much more reliable. Hopper said BOOK ASAP so I booked... prices went down $30 the next day. I’ve noticed it also doesn’t show all available flights and it doesn’t accurately reflect seats. It kept telling me only one seat was available go to the Airlines website the whole plane was still basically available. I would only use this as one of many tools when searching for cheap fares, but I certainly wont book through Hopper or rely on just it.
App well done
by GamerEdie on 2017/11/27 17:05
Hopper is great. I like to scour for deals. I don't care where I fly or when, but there are a few trips I want to take I'd the price is right. Hopper has a feature that allows for notifications without entering a date AND without entering a specific city (just a region, like "Malaysia"). What a thoughtful design!! The only feature I wish it had was a filter to exclude certain airlines. For example, I won't fly a particular airline to Bali, no matter the cost, because it's well known for damaged aircraft, capricious departure times, and stranding passengers in dangerous places without help. Just WAY too dangerous for a single woman to travel on. Of course, this airline has GREAT prices. I wish I could remove them from my search so they wouldn't trigger a great-price alert. I'm sure I'm not alone that there are airlines some won't take, or airlines some will only take.
This app has saved me more than once.
by StacyWacy91 on 2019/04/25 19:56
I’ve used other apps like kiwi and kayak but I have yet to find a free app that gets me prices lower than this. I once got sick in Naples and missed my flight. It would have cost me over $1600 usd to reschedule with my current airline. So I went on Hopper and booked a ticket for 5 days later for $380 usd. Saved me a ton of money after an already frustrating experience. I highly recommend this app. The only thing I wouldn’t personally purchase is the economy upgrade on the app. I usually don’t pay to upgrade the economy through the app because it’s usually cheaper to just book extra options with the airline such as baggage and seat selection.
Better, still unaddressed shortcomings
by Asan110 on 2018/01/11 04:18
Have booked many flights through the app; the actual booking process is a dream compared to direct through the airlines. But searching leaves much to be desired and still doesn’t give nearly enough control over dates — in particular, I may be interested *only* in evening or morning flights in the end date of my trip, if I’m trying to avoid taking time off work. The shortest option in the ‘flexible’ section you can choose is “weekends”, but this gives me results for 4-day trips like Tues-Sat. Do you understand what a WEEKEND is, Hopper? And let me blacklist specific airlines I don’t want to fly with, not just discount airlines! Lastly, PLEASE respect my locale settings—it’s very confusing trying to book travel when my iOS calendar starts on Monday but yours always starts in Sunday.
Completely misleading!
by Stellanovella on 2019/01/27 18:31
I would recommend only using this app to watch the price of flights. DO NOT BOOK THROUGH THEM!! I have been using Expedia to book flight for years and have never had a problem. When I went to book through hopper, I went through the whole process and got an error message that my payment didn’t go through. When I clicked the help support tab it said to check my upcoming trips and to look for a confirmation. There was no confirmation, and based to what the help tab said, the payment did not go through. I even refreshed the app several times and still no confirmation. THREE HOURS LATER after I booked through Expedia and it went through right away, I get a confirmation email from hopper that my flights have been confirmed. Now I have to fight them on this. I was mislead in many ways by hopper and DO NOT recommend anybody else using this app to book flights in order to save them the inconvenience that I am dealing with right now!
Very disappointed!
by Laying in bed 123456789 on 2018/11/10 23:39
If I could give this app zero stars, I would. I was excited to download it, reading the reviews I was sure it was going to save us lots of money when buying our tickets 10 months ahead of our trip. The app’s “Price Prediction” told me for six straight weeks that the price would drop significantly around November 1st. So, because of the great reviews it has, I trusted it and waited. I was never sent any notifications regarding price drops or rises after being sure all of my notifications and settings were on. The price never dropped when November 1st came and the price predictor just changed its prediction date and rates. Now, using other, more trustworthy apps, I have found that because I waited, prices are now $50-$75 higher per ticket than they were when I first began to look and decided to trust this app. I would not recommend this app to anyone. The best one I have found is “Cheap Flights” which doesn’t have a lying price predictor.
Can’t trust this app
by Mpowell411 on 2018/01/03 15:42
I recently updated this app before leaving a review. I selected to watch a flight for a while now since this is for a cruise that I have known about for months. Every time I choose to watch flights with no layovers the app says there are no flights available and I have to modify my search. However I have been on the web and have found a non stop flight through southwest which is a major airline. If it’s not able to find this and I can I’m not sure if I can trust anything this app has to offer. I love the idea behind it but I don’t like it when companies partner with other companies and only show the information they are affiliated with and pretend they are doing people a service. This is basically an advertisement for airlines who are paying them to show up in the results. You cannot call yourself a price hopper app when you don’t include all airlines.
by Sheri_Hankins on 2018/06/11 03:25
I’ve used Hopper several times to keep an eye out for great deals on flights. Recently I booked my flight back to the states through the app instead of using a different third party company. A situation came up and I needed to change my ticket, after speaking with an agent, I was told the change would cost $210 per ticket. I had purchased one ticket yet was planning to travel with my 19 month old (on lap). $210 didn’t seem bad until the agent told me I had to pay to change my daughters “ticket” as well. I decided to hold off on making a decision until speaking directly with the airline in which the ticket was with...sure enough, they only charged $210 to change both tickets. I’m pretty disappointed in the fact of feeling like they were trying to rip me off. I’ll continue to use the app but will never purchase a ticket through them ever again.
Best customer service ever!!!!!
by El Chamito on 2019/05/19 20:02
I am tried to do my check in for my trip to Madrid last night but unable to do it. I called Hooper and found that Iberia canceled the fly. Called Hopper and spoke with Chris (maybe spell wrong/ Kris) who found about the cancellation. He told me that he will work in my case and will back with me next day. I expressed my frustration specially because this is my first time booking with Hooper. An hour afte (midnight) he called with an answer. I not only keep the same time but better option, direct flight. Chris was very professional and what impressed me the most was that he called back before go home. He wanted to make sure that I know that my flight is secure. Thank you!
One tweak for five stars!
by punifloyd on 2018/01/11 06:15
I really like this app! I just downloaded it because I’m going to spend a semester abroad in Belgium this fall, and I want to use the opportunity to travel cheaply around Europe. Right now, I’ve set up the watch function so that I can get keep track of the best deals leaving Brussels, BUT there’s one problem... the minimum number of days I can set for a trip is 4, which I get by selecting weekend. Last I checked, the weekend is 2 days, not 4! I’ll be a full time student when I’m abroad, but cheap flights to nearby countries will make it easy to see Europe on the weekends... if I can find flights that are actually for just a weekend. I don’t want to miss too much class! Please update the app so that I can watch for 2 or 3 day trips, or tell me how to apply that setting if I’m just missing something!!
Hopper support needs help
by G2thapimp on 2019/03/26 13:17
Harper really does have great deals and it makes it a lot easier to access them. But if you have to make any changes to your booking or anything like that the hopper support needs lots of help! I have change my booking out twice. It seems like the hopper supports doesn’t really help out too much to find the best deals. If you have to change your booking you need to find the exact dates to change it to your self because they will find you flights that have like three layovers.. Not only am I flying to another country but with a toddler and they have all this information also. On top of all that they take days to answer emails and hours to answer calls. If I ever get some actual help I will update this but this is day 2 already trying to change a booking for the second time with hopper... Never had issues like this ever changing booking with ANY airline only hopper.
Inaccurate price prediction - beware!
by Skeeloco on 2019/02/26 17:48
The main reason to use this app is its purported price prediction. I came here to warn others not to trust it and see that I'm not at all alone in being fooled into waiting until prices increased. I should've read reviews before trusting this app. I'd been watching flight prices to London for weeks and decided to set up some alerts hoping to catch the lowest fare since my travel dates were still more than six months away. I thought I'd found a pretty good rate that had remained fairly steady, but Hopper advised waiting for even better prices. More than a week later the price increased. Hopper sent another message to continue waiting for a better price. Then two days later I got a notification that this current, higher rate was a "great deal" and that I should book now. After the price had gone up and after having been advised to wait for the opposite to happen. I realize it's not 100% accurate, but the prediction shouldn't be so wrong for a flight well in advance when the notifications seemed certain -- not maybes, not could drops, but definitely wait for better prices notifications (I've seen notifications with each of those varying degrees of certainty). Do not trust this app for price predictions. It'll make you hold out longer only to end up paying more.
Never Plan a Trip Without it!
by pamcakes09 on 2019/02/25 18:30
I like planning vacations way out in advance, and Hopper has a great feature where it shows pricing brackets for certain dates. Can’t even tell you how much money I’ve saved by flying back a day later than I was considering, or going the week earlier/later. It’s also helped me choose what time of year to travel where. The few times I’ve had to go somewhere last minute, it’s been fairly accurate. I wish Delta was included in the app, but I’ve booked mostly Delta flights using the predictions anyway and it still works. I can’t plan a vacation without Hopper. I love seeing the little bunny run too! :)
Non intuitive, poor interface, incomplete listings
by Journey4Truth on 2018/01/14 22:08
Not sure why this is getting so many favorable reviews. I gave it a try but found the interface nonintuitive, some examples being: 1. Lack of a home button so I can go back and start fresh. 2. No way to view your current watchlist so I have no idea what flights are currently being watched, and when setting a watch for certain flights, I only had the option to tap X or tap Cancel, making it seem like by doing so, I’m canceling the watch. There was no way to confirm the watch was active and indeed when I go through the same flight searches I see a prompt asking if I want to set a watch again, so it appears the previous watch I set was never saved. Just very confusing and not helpful. 3. Flight prices only cover certain airlines, it contains no Delta listings for example, which is not the fault of Hopper since Hipmunk has the same issue. However Hopper should make it CLEAR what airlines they don’t cover so we can check these airlines separately. 4. No way to clear notifications: all I can do is give them a thumbs down, which appears to do nothing, so what’s the point? Overall I wanted to like this app but way too many issues for it to be of any use to me.
Long Distance Relationship
by NattheSquash on 2018/08/20 14:01
I am in my 20s and in a long distance relationship, i waitress but while having to pay for school and other necessities, it is not easy to travel especially cheaply but thanks to the HOPPER app, there is minimal stress. You don’t have to worry about having your boarding pass, tickets etc because it is all right in your phone. They pick the best flights and cheapest, give you so many suggestions about how to find cheaper flights and explain why throughout your search. Thank You Hopper App! This is an app I don’t think I will ever delete no matter how full my storage gets 😉😅
Horrible experience
by mrsgrinchhh on 2018/12/22 14:11
I have used Hopper many times in the past successfully however my latest experience changed my option regarding this app. I attempted about 6 times unsuccessfully to book a reduced fare on American Airlines after being notified by Hopper that a reduced fare was available. Just got an Oops error message with no explanation why the sale would not go through after making my selections. I tried a different credit card to no avail and the last time it said that rate was no longer available and suggested choosing another flight time. Of course it did not tell me which flight was the issue. I gave up and used another app and was able to book the flights for the price I originally requested and able to get a rebate as well. I also could not find a way to contact Hopper. Total lack of customer service. Sorry Hopper, I’m done.
by TrumanHatch on 2017/09/21 06:21
Tried to book a round-trip flight through Hopper, got to the confirmation page and had a notification that said "there was an issue," but "don't worry, your card wasn't charged," so I figured it was a glitch. Tried to book the same flight, then got a notification that my credit card was declined. Turns out they had charged me Twice, and I still didn't have tickets to show for it. I called the help line, they confirmed that I did Not have tickets, nor could they give me the tickets over the phone, and they couldn't reverse the charges for 36 hours. So now my credit card is maxed out and I'll have to wait for them to delete the charges before I can buy tickets somewhere else. I wouldn't be writing this review if the help line operator had been even the slightest bit helpful or sympathetic. Terrible waste of time.
Great finding flights, terrible booking flights
by TGROW on 2017/10/10 13:13
Love this app for finding the best time to buy and researching flights. DO NOT buy tickets through them though!! I have only had headaches with trying to adjust flight plans, losing known traveler numbers (aka showing up the the airport without precheck being on there), and the worst part..... being in the last row of every single flight and leg of a flight. Every. Single. One. We booked tickets months in advance with lots of open seats, and they put us in the last row, next to the bathrooms, with no option to recline. Hopper was unable to change our seats, and since we booked through the app the airlines themselves couldn’t even change our seats when I called. I will never book another flight through this app.
Best Travel App
by Llac2013_ on 2019/04/04 13:52
My husband and I have not only gotten great ticket prices through this app multiple times, but we have had amazing customer service. We just had our trip in June canceled by the WOW airline bankruptcy so we had to scramble to get new tickets. In our rush we accidentally bought 4 tickets instead of two. The gentleman that helped us was very knowledgeable and friendly and fixed things right away. It was such a relief to have such great customer service, I was ready to fight and pay fees. I have full confidence in buying through hopper and recommend it to anyone who loves to travel!
by annawouldgo on 2019/06/22 04:51
I never leave reviews and felt the need to after what hopper did for me. I had booked a flight with EVA air through hopper that got cancelled due to the airlines’ pay strike, which was announced 2 days before my flight was supposed to fly. EVA air was no help whatsoever with fake helpline numbers, dead-end links on their website, and vague emails. I emailed Hopper with a request for a new flight and within 5 hours got a response with same-day options at no extra cost and they updated my new booking right away. When the airline doesn’t have your back, you can trust Hopper to help out.
Inaccurate prices
by Rhee Lotter on 2018/08/23 20:11
I like that this tracks how the trends of the flight are. What I don’t like is the inaccurate pricing of this. I don’t know if they overlook budget airlines, but even if they don’t, I’ve entered flights and found flight prices on Google flights before and the lowest listing flight prices (direct, non-budget, round trip , perfectly normal flights) and the flight prices that hopper shows will sometimes be way off from the lowest listed cheapest flights. For example, a flight I had on google was listed at $380 and Hopper had it listed for over $500. Now I’m looking at a round trip flight to London for about $540 on united airlines and Hopper is showing the lowest round trip fares for the exact same date to $753.
My favorite travel app but...
by Sadatus on 2019/04/12 14:32
My favorite fare hunting app. I would’ve given it a 4.5-star if that was an option but I feel a lot more could be done with offering users flexibility with regards to a “multi-city” flight search like most of the other flight search apps. Also, even though I acknowledge the price predictions are based on historical data and so I don’t expect it to me spot on, I’ve had a few instances where the prediction has been way off. Maybe the algorithm needs a second look at. I look forward to a continuous improvement within the app and overall user experience for patrons. Thumbs up to the development team! 👍🏾
Tickets are not changeable!
by TiredofCensorship on 2019/02/24 21:59
You may pay for changeable tickets, but they are not! Got to counter, needed a later flight. Airline said no problem if you had bought them through us. But since you bought them through Hopper, you have to change the tickets through them. So I called Hopper, was on hold for half an hour with no opportunity for voicemail. I sent an email, they replied two hours later. And continued to answer with 2 hour turn arounds. I gave up and had to just buy a whole new ticket home! Outrageous! They wanted 24 hours notice. NOW they tell you that. Not ok! The ticket I paid for was changeable in the reasonable sense of the word. Hopper customer service is inadequate. Hopper is selling tickets as changeable when they are not. I gave many opportunities for them to correct this and they will not.
Great prices when notified
by frustrateduser_CFA on 2019/02/05 14:27
I have had great success in purchasing plane tickets when I pay attention to the notification and try to select the best times that match my itinerary. A couple of downsides is that I tried to register my device for this app and it keeps telling me that an account already exists. Therefore I don’t purchase tickets through this app and I have to go to the front page of the major airline to book. Overall great app that saves money especially when I am waiting for that trip. And if I don’t get to go because I missed it, it’s okay! I’ll have saved money and will wait for another opportunity with Hopper.
App shockingly hard to use
by Joleeneb22 on 2018/08/29 00:21
For the life of me, I’ve never gotten the app to work in the way it was intended. The UI follows an odd, non-conventional minimalist design aesthetic which does not make adjusting filters or navigating the app intuitive. For example, I want to watch any weekend trip to San Francisco to visit a friend. In the app, you search by destination and departure, then filter your results based on a price graph. The supposed true power of the app kicks in with the ability to watch certain filtered criteria and receive alerts. However, filtering this data is shockingly limited and glitchy. When set to “weekend” the app searches “4 day trip” instead, displaying fri-tues and Thurs-mon flights. I don’t know who has four days weekends, but it certainly isn’t me. I would never consider booking through this app for this reason; I don’t think the prices it gives are trustworthy. I have also found prices through other sites, like Skyscanner, for less with the same inputs. I don’t know which airlines it includes in its searches, but it can’t be more than the competition based on my comparisons. I would like to use it for general updates and price alerts, but again, filtering is glitchy and unusable.
Where's the Customer Support?
by Suzanne T. on 2018/07/26 17:18
Got good prices on flights I started tracking with Hopper 3-4 months in advance. The first flight, in June, was smooth enough, though I wasn't allowed to upgrade my seat before boarding on the return flight—even though there were upgrade options available on the airport kiosk. The reason I'm not giving 4 or 5 stars is because of today's non-existent customer support. I got a notification that the airline has changed my late-August flight times (a 20-minute-earlier departure! Argh!). Trying to contact Hopper re their policy of accepting the change on my behalf, I tried their site. Chat not available. I called and was on hold for 10 minutes (I hung up). That's not customer support.
Absolutely the best airfare app
by Ggydchfhgyufg on 2018/01/30 13:02
I kind of wish there was a web version of this amazing app. Whatevs, I get to track flight prices in real time, which is amazing. Currently trying to decide where to go for my next vacation. My wife works for a school and has specific days off, so I put in a bunch of destinations and it gives me alerts when pricing changes. It also has a great heat map for forecasting airfare prices, which makes it a good planning tool if you don’t have any planned days off yet. Been using this app for airfare for the last four years or so and it’s still the best out there.
Didn’t do what it’s supposed too.

A few weeks ago I signed up for hopper and wanted to receive notifications on a trip from PHL to VPS Destin Florida. The trip was in my saved “trips”. It said at the time to wait and that prices would stop dropping by end of July. WELL, now here I am wondering why I haven’t received one notification on prices while I have them enabled. Check the app and it must not have saved my account because I had to do it all over again when it was already saved!! And now it says to BOOK NOW!! Cool!! Glad thing I checked today. Skip this app and go with what experts know best. My sister had been telling me not to wait and to book soon but I was like “oh my app says I can wait it will get over $100 cheaper... 🙄” yea right. This price now is NOT cheaper and this app doesn’t work. Deleting it today.
What every young traveler needs.
by em.ily_h on 2018/07/17 13:24
As a college student and 20 something, I always have the travel bug but am extremely price sensitive. I have used Hopper to get from Houston to Chicago, LA, and Philly. I always keep notifications on and share the app whenever possible. My gf just booked through Hopper to Detroit by watching the trip. Easy to use, great concept, and I’ve never had an issue with the app or company! I am loyal to this booking platform for sure! (I just wish they had a website as well, but understand keeping cost low to provide more value to the customer)
Never notified of flight cancellation
by MsBobbi on 2019/02/03 03:44
I’ve used this app many times to track reduced prices for international travel. I will never book through them again. One leg of my flight return flight from Lisbon was cancelled and I was never notified. My friend booked through Expedia and it was through her I found out the cancellation. When I called to inquire I had to tell them about the cancelled flight! To make other arrangements involves them emailing you an alternative (the person you speak to CANNOT change your flight) If you don’t agree to the rebooking they chose and sent you via email, the process starts all over. This is so inefficient, you end up with poor seats or no seats & increases your costs waiting. I’m going back to google
In need of an update
by MsZTB on 2018/07/03 21:15
This app used to be my favorite. Now it is quite annoying. I have previously placed a watch on a flight. Since then, I have deleted the watch but yet I continue to receive notifications for the watch. When I select to view the price offers, nothing is there to check. This has happened for so many flight searches that I have deleted all searches and will be deleting the app. I have also received notifications for flight dates that have passed. Lastly, I have received notifications for hotel prices that I knowingly declined to receive notifications for. I know it’s technology, so my recommendation is to do an update to the configuration of the app. It’s becoming more of an annoyance than of assistance.
Awesome, easy way to save big!
by bIgle44 on 2017/11/02 20:31
I’ve used Hopper for about a year and have saved $1700+ on just 3 international flights. The app finds lesser-known options and alerts you at the optimal time to buy - and it works great! Only feedback: add more filtering options (specific departure time, airline, etc.) and also the ability to search across multiple days and airports without having to create more than one tracked search. This would be super helpful for those of us who are stuck choosing from several expensive airports! :) Otherwise, this app is perfect!
Way too easy to buy a flight (in the good way)
by sparta93 on 2018/09/12 18:52
Super simple and easy to use. My only complaint would be that it took awhile to realize I was in hotels and not flights at first. Not sure why it defaulted to hotels since it’s a flight app. But otherwise incredibly easy to use, very enjoyable experience, the ease of browsing and the new flex feature make it super efficient to find a great flight, AND the prices are honest! No tacking on a bunch of extra fees and you see what the baggage costs right away. Totally worth the five dollar booking fee they collect.
Super helpful!
by Wakeangel79 on 2019/05/26 19:39
I am amending my earlier review! This app is great to watch flights.....and when they say prices are going up and to it! You won’t be sorry! Although truth be usually need to book slightly before that.....just use your good judgement. I booked through them for the first time and had an agent tell me a wrong fact about my flight stressing me out.....but they have since corrected the problem and gone above and beyond in their customer service! I won’t say I will ever actually book directly with them again.....but for watching airfares I will absolutely continue to use!
Amazing Customer Support
by Bossy kiwi on 2019/06/09 09:59
Downloaded Hopper by a friends request and have used it a few times to get good prices on flights. Last used it to book a flight in Miami, but due to checkpoint closures at SEATAC I ended up missing my flight, Hopper’s customer support was super helpful and contacted me right away when I reached out to them, and even gone ahead looked for other flights for me. The airline ended up being understanding and booking me on the next flight, but I was still blown away by how helpful and caring the support staff was. Thank you so much Hopper :)
App is great!!
by Teen75 on 2019/04/20 01:08
What is with the negative reviews people?? Airlines can have plans and decide to change them the LAST MINUTE!! How is this app supposed to know? It does what it says, I’m always getting notifications!! However, the minus 1 Star is because of some personal preference with airlines. Here’s a suggestion: When I click filter out of don’t show Basic Economy fares , please filter out Spirit and Frontier along with any other budget airlines because Economy on a budget airline is the equivalent of Basic Economy on a legacy airline! If I don’t want to fly a legacy airline in Basic, I absolutely will not want to fly a Budget airline in Economy AT ALL!!
Inconsistent Advice and Low Prediction Accuracy
by Brimbert on 2018/09/28 00:20
Do your research on your flight plans before using this app. This has been the most inconsistent app, and prediction is not accurate at all. I used this app to help me plan a trip to New Orleans, and finding the cheapest flight. I used this app a month and a half outside of the travel date, and this app kept telling me to wait because prices would drop. Prices kept rising and the app still told me to wait because prices would drop. I waited two weeks before my trip, the prices only increased, and finally after ticket prices rose to over $500 round trip this app told me to buy. If you see a good price on a ticket, take your chances then and buy. Don’t waste your time using this app that will cost your arm at the end of it all.
Poor predictions
by Sdb1919 on 2017/12/20 05:56
I began using Hopper with the hopes of saving money. I used predictions from this app for two separate trips and it cost me hundreds of dollars. For example, one trip began at $1,152 for my family and hopper suggested to wait... I monitored prices weekly and they continued to climb. Hopper suggested to wait with prices varying each week.... “if you wait, plane tickets will be “$280”, then it was $320, $480, and now $570... prices far worse than they were when I first checked. This has happened on two different occasions. From now on I’m going to go against hopper’s advice and book when I feel it’s a good deal. I don’t normally leave reviews, but I thought this review may help some people save hundreds of dollars.... if it seems like a good deal, go ahead and purchase. Don’t rely on Hopper!
by iphoneuser20121994 on 2018/09/03 14:54
THIS APP IS A SCAM. I had a trip coming up and used hopper hoping the prices would come down. The app assured me the tickets (starting at 509 when I first got on) would go down to $470. So I waited of course. I had my notifications on and checked regularly and it kept telling me to wait wait wait. All of a sudden, in a day, the prices jacked up to $550 and the app told me they would get higher and I needed to book. The promise of going down never happened and instead the prices went up!!! I will never use this app again and will tell all my friends and family the same. Don’t waste your time and money!!!!! The app completely lied about the prices dropping and they in fact RISED!! I could’ve booked three months ago when I first looked for $50 less.
