Not finding your ideal flight options via your standard travel booking platforms? You might want to try Shoopit. This search engine and browser extension helps find flights at the best possible price. Unlike other platforms promising the same results, Shoopit goes a step further by searching local versions of flight-booking websites. This method bypasses higher prices you might see based on your IP address or geographic location.


“Just as the travel industry was beginning to recover from two years of Covid-19-enforced lockdowns, inflation hit and forced people to reconsider their budgets” said Avi Raz Cohen, general manager, Hola, owner of Shoopit. “In this environment, getting the best travel deal is more important than ever. Shoopit shows the best prices offered by some of the world’s most popular flight-booking websites, not just the local version you’re used to seeing, but their local versions from around the globe. This allows for users to make better, informed purchases online, while at the same time making savings — regardless of where they live.”


Shoopit, based in the United Kingdom, noted that, as of the fall of 2022, air travel costs had risen more than 35 percent year over year.
