Free travel apps that can help you save money are a no-brainer. So if you want a concise way to figure out when to buy flights and book hotels, the Hopper App is a great option. Based out of Montreal, Canada, this company tries to practice what it preaches by treating its employees as well as it treats the consumer.

 

The app can, apparently, predict the best prices for travel with 95 percent accuracy up to one year in advance. Its mission is to have you plan less and travel more. After installing the app and entering your destination and city of origin along with your preferred price range, the app will scan prices and notify you of the best option. You do purchase the tickets through Hopper, but, according to online chatter, the deliverables can be trusted.

 

Something to keep in mind is Hopper is predicting when to buy based on historical data. This means if you purchase something two months in advance, there may very well be something cheaper that comes up later that month.

 

With hotels the process is similar. You type in your destination and price range and wait to be notified about your best options. The app will tell you the best price in that moment, but then assess whether or not you should expect a better price at some point in the future.
