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.
Thanks for finding the best cheap price is right up my alley. I love this app

Time Saver
by sudschick on 2019/04/20 15:20
For a busy person who cannot spend hours surfing the net for good deals, this is an amazing time saver. I wish you could put in a destination without dates and have it notify you of good deals, sometimes we just travel on spur of the moment if s good deal pops up.
Spams you
by The1stBeliever on 2019/04/20 11:43
Signed up for a single trip watch? This app will spam you with completely unwanted, completely forced notifications that you can never turn off. Waste of time.
I loooooove it.

I always get the Best prices at 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!!
Best cheap flight app out there
by Deannahart24 on 2019/04/19 23:57
I looove this app so much. Love the price layout of the months. Super easy to tell which days are cheaper to fly. I also love that I get to choose my out going flights from return flights separately, I’m not forced to choose the combo they’ve chosen for me like other apps. Also love the alerts for when I’m watching a flight.
Ruined our trip cost us big bucks
by Fhdtfhjfxvh on 2019/04/19 23:18
We asked Hopper to correct a mistake with my wife’s name on an itinerary booked through their app. They changed it but also mistakenly changed the return flight’s date to the same date as our departure. We didn’t catch this until arriving at our destination. We then were stuck without a return flight and had to book another one at last minute with great expense during a holiday weekend. Don’t trust them, they’ll destroy your trip and cost you major money.
Satisfied Costumer
by Mom from New Jersey on 2019/04/19 15:35
I’ve tried other booking sites as what travel vloggers recommended (skyscanner, momondo, kayak..) But I always go back to Hopper, I’m not a vlogger, and anyone who happen to read this, it’s highly recommended! Their price is always great! Thank You Hopper❤️
by KaylaRaeG on 2019/04/19 13:49
Just a heads up! If you purchase tickets through this app, if a medical emergency happens and you have all the backup documentation needed and you try to reschedule or cancel your flight, they will not do it. You can only cancel or reschedule your flights within 24 hours of your purchase. So you will be out all the money you paid for the tickets. You’re better off purchasing the tickets directly from the airline so at least you’ll have the option to reschedule or cancel if anything were to happen. I will never use this app again. I strongly suggest none of you use it either. It’s a rip off!
by MillerLite89 on 2019/04/19 13:49
Good as far as notifications on price drops. I decided to book straight from the app. Bad idea!! I got a notification that my purchase didn’t complete and to try again later. I decided to purchase straight from the airlines app. Turns out Hopper already took the money out of my bank even though the booking didn’t go through!! Now it’s taking possibly 10 days to get my money back. Never book with Hopper!

Poor customer service
by KyWats on 2019/04/19 01:56
They’re customer service is almost nonexistent. Book through literally any other site and you’ll actually get some level of accountability and assistance. You can’t chat with representatives through the app. They don’t answer phone calls when you call. The people who respond to emails aren’t helpful. Worst experience ever. I usually don’t take the time to write reviews on apps, but I did today.
by sffoodie11 on 2019/04/19 01:43
I search for hotel in Napa, it says there are none, which is not true, I just have to search for SFO instead 🤦🏻‍♀️. Then I have to use the map view and pinch to zoom in the least responsive and geeky jerky interface ever, just to find the hotels in Napa. Once there, I tap on a hotel to view details and when I go back to the map, it snaps back to the original zoom level, requiring me to pinch pinch pinch in the awful interface all over again 🤦🏻‍♀️ huge waste of time
Crazy good prices, nice call center
by The Bergster on 2019/04/19 01:19
Great price to Germany. Just rember to pay attention to your reservations, airlines can change or CANCEL what happened to one leg of my trip. I caught it in advance, called HOPPER, and the team rebooked the lost leg. May have to call during nonpeak hours. For the great prices, I'm willing to be proactive and watch my reservation on the airlines website.
by dhshsjeheiej on 2019/04/18 23:14
They tell you to wait bc prices will drop the prices NEVER drop they just rise and rise and rise until you are forced to pay way more than you ever expected bc you waited. Disgusting and awful

by tammy1234$ on 2019/04/17 17:17
I wanted to book a flight for $142 per person through american airlines website. I decided to check this app and saw the same flight. The app told me that i should wait because the prices would go down, so i did. Not only did the prices not go down but I ended up losing my flight time. It was all sold out and now I'm stuck with no return flight. Searching other websites for a similar flight time smh. I should have just booked it when I wanted to instead of listening to this stupid app.

Need to update listings
by Rach eats toast on 2019/04/16 19:41
They had several flights listed through my search that ended up not having available seats. Shouldn’t be on the site then.
by Srp0228 on 2019/04/16 17:47
I got screwed by this app the first time I used it. It told me to wait 3 weeks to save $200, then updated a day later advising me to buy now at a much higher price. Since then I’ve checked it out of curiosity every time I fly and it’s been wrong every time.
by Wakeangel79 on 2019/04/15 22:34
While helpful to watch flights booking with them has been a nightmare! You can’t do anything with your flights! I booked on 2 separate airlines and stupidly paid $5 extra bucks for them to help me only to have them tell me they screwed me over! Never will I make that mistake again.....I now have to take an awful red eye across the country in a middle seat bc instead of disclosing when I bought the ticket that I wouldn’t be able to book my seat.....I find out a week later. Lesson learned sadly got my money this time but never again and I will warn anyone who listens! Do not use!!!!!!
by sasove on 2019/04/15 17:01
It’s so easy to use and not intimidating like most websites to book tickets, I have used this to book emergency flights and regular vacation flights and I’ve never encountered any complications like I have using other sites.
First time user
by woodshop teacher on 2019/04/15 16:51
Hopper is very quick and effective and seems on first try to do the job of purchasing a flight ticket quite effectively. I will plan to us it more on planning a trip in Europe and am hoping for the best as additional flights are booked. 4 stars for now as it was fairly easy app to use.
Won’t remember my login info and always have to sign back in
by mininal_dr on 2019/04/15 08:27
I have had good experiences yet the app will never remember my login info. Sky scanner is much easier to deal with. If they fix this bug I may return.
Best Traveling App
by sue123384625 on 2019/04/14 19:43
This app is seriously the best. Many of my trips are for pleasure and can be taken at any time— this app has a calendar feature that shows you the best/cheapest days to travel.
by Saeedmom on 2019/04/14 17:19
I downloaded this app in hopes of finding a cheap last minutes flight! The app gave predictions that a flight which was $356 would go down as low as $122. After constantly checking 24/7 for these decrease in prices the price only dropped twice and it was nowhere near $122! The app was suppose to send notifications for the flight you are watching. Unfortunately, the app only sent one notification the second day after downloading. After that I never received no notifications when the prices dropped. I realized the prices went down because of how constantly I was watching the app. Two days before the last day that the app said the prices would go down the price went down all of $4 which ended up at $352 and the app said I should get this ticket because they don’t predict the prices will be any lower! How is that possible when you gave me a prediction of the tickets reaching $122! All in all the app was not helpful, notifications were not sent when prices dropped, and the predictions were an absolute lie! I would not recommend this app to anyone! Mean while I found cheaper flights for my destination by simply googling the flights in a private browser! Anyone thinking about downloading this app please do with caution! And DO NOT solely depend on this app for cheapest flights!
Doesn’t work well
by somebody like others on 2019/04/14 17:10
The app often times opens up a blank screen or states that the trip details aren’t well known. Then why do I get a notice with a price?
Pretty disappointed
by Mariaelena1093 on 2019/04/14 04:51
Tried getting some flights and many times didn’t go through and 3 times I had money taken out of my account even though I wasn’t able to book my flight...

Must have traveling app
by eddyv96 on 2019/04/13 07:49
Hopper is super helpful because even if you look up the same dates on other sites online like google flights, hopper always has different and cheaper prices, so far I’ve gone to Berlin, Amsterdam, Stockholm and I’ve booked other flights this year to Barcelona, Havana and Rome. I’m really excited for this year, all thanks to Hopper !
User friendly
by Demosthenes14 on 2019/04/13 07:08
So easy to use! Love how it notifies you when to wait and when to buy. I don’t understand how it knows when the prices are going to drop or not. I saved $50 for waiting a couple weeks.
by IRTrudey on 2019/04/13 00:43
Keeps telling me to wait for a cheaper price on a flight to London then gives me the fantastic news that I can save $2 on a $1400 fare. Useless.

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! 👍🏾
Do not book flight with app
by RalSonia on 2019/04/12 10:22
This app is good until you book a flight with them. Trying to contact the app after an error is horrible. I was on the phone for 2 hours on hold. I did receive email responses about 4 hours after emailing them. When I tried their solution I received an “Oops something went wrong message”
Do NOT book through them!
by caveatemptor82 on 2019/04/12 02:49
I loved this app for its fare prediction, but actually purchasing tickets through them has been a nightmare. After I purchased the fare, the airline changed the scheduled times by several hours, which they themselves told me entitled me to a refund under Article 11. When I called them, they said I’d need to contact Hopper and arrange cancellation through them. Five days and two unanswered support tickets later, I’ve heard absolutely nothing from Hopper and been unable to cancel my ticket. To add insult to injury, they charged me $90 more than the airline’s actual fare was, evidenced by comparing their receipt with the airline’s. Ridiculous.
by Professor__X on 2019/04/11 18:28
Convenient for booking flight. First time using. Waited to buy ticket per hopper recommendation for “cheaper flight.” Flight ended up costing ~$150 more after waiting. As a result, I don’t trust hoppers future price calculator, however it is still a convenient app.
Great concept, but needs some work
by TriceeTap on 2019/04/11 18:11
I love the idea of this app and for the most part it will alert of price changes. However, recently I decided to look on my own randomly and I found a flight over $100 cheaper than the last update Hopper gave me. Kind of a big deal. So now I’m a little wary about the up-to-date info its given or where it’s pulling from.
by Tiggywig2729 on 2019/04/11 04:29
by Jakeowens757 on 2019/04/11 01:57
Says price is less than 100 for flight then when clicked on it jumps almost 3 times as much???
I Lost Over $200, Thanks Hopper!!
by Deeeeeeeetroit on 2019/04/11 00:34
I was going to buy a flight when it was $200. Hopper told me to wait. I waited. Tickets went up to $250. Hopper told me to wait. Trip is a month away. Tickets go up to $300. Hopper said wait, flights will go down to $130. My flight is a week away and now cost $430 and Hopper is telling me to buy now, this is the best price. Never once did it go under $200. This is HORRIBLE APP and I’m extremely frustrated. I’m wondering if this is run by the airlines to get us to spend more money. Do yourself a favor: delete this app and throw $100 out of a moving car. It will be cheaper and at least you get to feel cool.
Great way to look at multiple days and options.
by debwill10 on 2019/04/10 23:21
Love love love this app. We used this for all our flights while my daughter was traveling in Europe. Easy to use
Wasn’t the best price!!!!
by Expected Better! on 2019/04/10 19:49
I was following Hopper for the best price on a flight for myself and a friend. I followed the recommendations on when to book. I waited and finally the “Bunny” recommended booking because this was the lowest price, and going to be the best price!!!!! However, out of curiosity I looked again today and THE PRICE WAS LOWER!!!! I am not happy with this result or with your app!!!! Will not recommend!!!
Awesome to work with
by Jrfd1215 on 2019/04/10 17:27
I had a problem with a 5 HOUR scheduled flight delay. I decided to call Hopper instead of the airline because it was sooo annoyed at the airline. Not only was the Hopper customer service person friendly, they actually got me a refund on my cancellation of the flight. Needless to say I immediately booked s new flight - through Hopper - and on another airline!
DISHONEST. Would not let us cancel even in the 24 hour window.
by Matte633 on 2019/04/10 16:23
This app is a SCAM and FRAUDULENT. We booked tickets knowing there was a 24 hour window to cancel. We had to cancel the trip. We clicked the “cancellation” button and it didn’t work. It said to contact hopper through calling or email. We did both. No answers on the phone, no response to the email... kept calling... finally got ahold of them and they said it was past the 24 hours, even though we have evidence, phone records, emails, and screen shots showing it was within the 24 hours. Will NEVER use it again. They purposely set it up so no one can cancel. Fraudulent behavior.
Great App!

by Juju1083217 on 2019/04/10 14:41
Do not download this app. This app doesn’t even deserve 1 star. the estimate price drop isn’t accurate, I waited months for a flight to drop in the price it said and it never did. Use skyscanner or other cheap flight app.

by STEVE___820 on 2019/04/10 03:22
Don’t listen to this app. The prices that they say will drop, won’t drop. In fact they will go up and will cost you more money. Deleting this app as soon as I finish writing this review.
by boy prison on 2019/04/10 00:43
If I could go back in time I would never use this shady app to book plane tickets. They have no customer support. Tried contacting them through the app, twitter, instagram, email, tried calling several times for hours and no one answers. Not worth it.
Customer service is non-existent
by HufflePunch on 2019/04/10 00:32
I have been on hold for half an hour and still haven’t been able to communicate with anybody. Seeing reports of people being on hold with them for 2+ hours on their Facebook pages too and non receiving refunds in a timely manner. BEWARE.
Price change
by handarting on 2019/04/09 15:52
I picked a flight time and was about to book but checked some other times then came back to book the same time 2 minutes later and the price came up $21 per ticket. I do t think that’s cool

by ugh5678 on 2019/04/09 10:24
Every time I open the app, I have to re-add my watch list. This app was recommended to me by a coworker who was super impressed with this app and its ability to help her find cheap flights. She has an Android and has never had to re-add her watch list. I’m very disappointed, I was really hoping to set it and forget it until best priced flights became available.

Hidden fees

Had a mysterious $1 charge to my card from the app in addition to my flight I booked and the $5 tip they automatically select for you. Would have loved to have notification prior to additional charges being made.
Love the ease

If I were you I’d go with a different site these jokers are full of it!!! I would never recommend this site to anyone stuck to the tried and true Expedia, Travelocity, and Priceline. Then they have the nerve not to be honest and disclose all the facts to you like you are not saving money. This site is a piece of junk.

Hopper’s “Predictions” will only lose you $
by mrslouis on 2019/04/07 00:07
Honestly you’ll probably be better off doing the exact opposite of what their predictions suggest you do. They keep you waiting, suggesting prices will drop, while prices only keep rising and your trip to attend your mother’s funeral becomes absolutely unaffordable. Thanks hopper! Hire new data engineers
Great app!!!

Don't try to trick me, Hopper!

Best experience buying tickets
Don’t wait!
by cateew on 2019/04/05 01:10
Followed instructions to wait and ended up costing $150 more per one way ticket.

Awesome site! I don’t use any other to find cheap flights! Only site that actually track prices and notify you! I just love Hopper!!!

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!
Great prices, rarely connects to internet
by Ray_Brad on 2019/04/04 02:31
I have enjoyed using his app to find tickets but consistently this app does not load, stating that I am not connected to the internet.

Great web site fast and secure
by Saeedmom on 2019/04/14 17:19
I downloaded this app in hopes of finding a cheap last minutes flight! The app gave predictions that a flight which was $356 would go down as low as $122. After constantly checking 24/7 for these decrease in prices the price only dropped twice and it was nowhere near $122! The app was suppose to send notifications for the flight you are watching. Unfortunately, the app only sent one notification the second day after downloading. After that I never received no notifications when the prices dropped. I realized the prices went down because of how constantly I was watching the app. Two days before the last day that the app said the prices would go down the price went down all of $4 which ended up at $352 and the app said I should get this ticket because they don’t predict the prices will be any lower! How is that possible when you gave me a prediction of the tickets reaching $122! All in all the app was not helpful, notifications were not sent when prices dropped, and the predictions were an absolute lie! I would not recommend this app to anyone! Mean while I found cheaper flights for my destination by simply googling the flights in a private browser! Anyone thinking about downloading this app please do with caution! And DO NOT solely depend on this app for cheapest flights!
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!
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.
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.
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 !
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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! :)
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.
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 😉😅
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!!

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.
$3k extra in air tickets! Do not use this up!
by Yevilo on 2018/07/13 03:17
The app keeps giving me the right information. It tells me to wait to book until a certain date because the prices will drop but it never drops it keeps going up. I have used for 2 trips one to Tenerife Spain 2 people and I paid almost $800 more each when I could have bought the ticket at $750 when I first started looking for tickets. One trip to El Salvador that I paid $300 more and now one to Barcelona in September and now it’s $1200 with 17 hours of travel when I could have paid $700 or less for a direct flight! Thank you hopper for giving me the wrong information and make me spend and extra $3k in air tickets this year! My husband and I would have traveled to a few other places with that money!
Very helpful app.
by Loulom on 2018/12/27 21:15
This is a very helpful app that helps you find a good price for your airfare. They may suggest alternate cheaper dates, so it’s your responsibility to look carefully at what you’re agreeing to buy before you buy it. Hopper lets you know if you should buy now or wait because the price may drop. It’s very helpful. As with anything you buy, check what you are buying. Try not to make a mistake then expect others to save you. They try hard, but sometimes it’s the airlines that are quite rigid and hard to change.
Very accurate rate info
by Socalgal428 on 2018/07/14 19:31
I don’t book through Hopper because I used Airline credit cards and want to be sure I get my points, but I use Hopper to follow the rates and they are very accurate and so useful! I love that I can put in the dates and get a notification telling me when the best time to buy is. Be aware that by the time the fare is lowest there may also be limited seating, and that depending upon what time of day you want to leave and return, the rate may go up from the “lowest” price you see - but it’s still the best time to buy.
Great App with 1 missing feature
by ajswitz on 2018/05/16 21:51
I’m really excited about saving money with this app. It’s great that you can save flights that you’re watching and it’ll tell you what the price is and when to book! However, on the main “Watch” tab where you can see the flights you saved, you can’t see the current best price unless you click into it. There’s already some open space to the right, and it would be a great way to get a quick glimpse whether the price has changed without me having to go into every trip I save. Other than that, it’s an amazing app.
Almost perfect
by errantmisfit on 2017/12/20 16:58
This has been my go to app for finding flights for a few years now. I’ve tried all the competitors: Hipmumk, Travelocity, Orbitz, et al. and Hopper keeps me coming back. Finding and tracking flights is dead simple and the UI isn’t over designed. It’s a must download. My one criticism is the post flight booked experience. It’s difficult to easily and elegantly transfer your new tickets to the app or site from Hopper. I would have liked to see some options for the scheduled trip (the ability to copy the record number [that used to be a feature but doesn’t seem to work anymore], a button to share the trip to other apps like TripIt or the airline apps themselves) but sadly those are missing. There’s a share button for the trip, but the output isn’t something I would really want to send to my friends and family. With those sharing options, this would be a five star app. Definitely worth the download though!
A little frustrating but will try to use it again in the future.
by sweettsunami on 2019/01/27 02:44
App is simple to use and gives you updates everyday which is useful. However every time I would try to purchase a flight it would say that there was not enough seats available when I was just buying one ticket. I eventually had to choose a different flight. Why does it show “what’s available” when it kicks you back continuously telling you it’s not available. And every time I would go back to choose another flight the flight that I wanted was still showing as available... so is it available or not???
