Hopper is a travel startup based in Cambridge, MA and Montreal, QC. In January 2015, the Hopper for iOS app was launched, and in August 2015, the company launched Hopper for Android.
Flight pricing is highly complex and opaque, so travelers often don't have the information they need to get the best deals on flights. Hopper provides insightful, data-driven research to help travelers make better decisions about where to go and when to fly and buy. Hopper shares that information and great flight deals with users via their smartphones, while simultaneously helping them book flights quickly, seamlessly, and on the go with their innovative QuickTap Booking for iOS feature.
Hopper's research and expert advice has been featured in The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Forbes, Business Insider, Boston Globe, NBC News, ABC News, CNN, CNBC, and the Associated Press, among others. The Hopper app has been featured in TechCrunch, Tech Insider, Gizmodo, Lifehacker, Mashable, Buzzfeed, Cnet, AFAR, Travel + Leisure, and more.
Hopper was founded in 2007, is based in Boston and Montreal, and is backed by Brightspark, Atlas Venture and OMERS Ventures.
