Hopper is one of Scott’s Cheap Flights’ favorite flight search engines. Not everyone is familiar with Hopper, so we decided to put together this pros and cons round up, as well as a tutorial. You can find our in-depth Google Flights guide. The good about Hopper is that it searches just about every single online travel agency, or “OTA”, as we like to call them, out there: the bigger ones that we’ve all heard of, like Expedia and , or the smaller, relatively new ones like . Because it searches all OTAs rather than just a few, Hopper is much more likely than Google Flights to find the cheapest possible price for any given flight. Not always, but in about 98% or so of cases, it will find the cheapest price. The bad about Hopper is that the searches are slow… real slow. Makes sense considering how many OTAs they’re searching at once. Plus, unlike Google Flights, you can’t do flexible date searches. If you want to find the cheapest flight for a given route in the next three months, you’d have to search every single day in there. If you have any flexibility in your dates, it’s typically better to start your searching in Google Flights, find the best dates, and then carry those dates over to Hopper. You’re thinking, “Scott,” or “Nicole, are these OTAs really trustworthy? I read some questionable reviews online and I’m worried that I’m goanna get scammed.” This is a common and important question. The short answer is that if you’re worried that some OTA is goanna take your money and not give you the tickets don’t be. The longer answer is that most OTAs are able to offer these really cheap fares because they’re skimping on customer support, and they’re also imposing really high change/cancellation fees. If you’re quite confident in your dates and you don’t think you’ll be needing customer support after purchasing, it could be worth the savings. Of course, if you are still feeling unsure or uncomfortable, it might not be worth the risk, and it may just be worth the peace of mind just to book directly with the airline or with a major OTA. so after opening the app just book the flights from one place to one and can book the flights I cheaper rates.

Just scroll down a little bit and you’ll see that we’ve already had seat maps highlighted. Here and we go ahead and searching the information for the flight we hope to take. so I actually just booked a flight going to New York and I use Google flights to find the cheap flight and the dates I’m traveling for January 9th and I’m flying I’m site to 277 . So once you get fine and you scroll down it’s goanna pull up that flight information so it’s showing that there’s a nonstop flight from Minneapolis to LaGuardia flight number departure arrival time . The aircraft and whatever amenities the highlight here so I’m goanna go ahead and hit view map. Now you will see what this map looks like by just scrolling down and you’ll notice that this is also an interactive seeing map which is pretty cool additional details as to you know the pitch with the number of seats. That’s all shown up here there’s also a map key if you wanted to click . That’s goanna drop you to the bottom of the site or if you just scrolled you’ll see the map key down there as well . So this is really helpful when you’re figuring out where you want to book your seat there’s some additional information . Here on the side, if you want to check it out but really I just want to know where the best seat is so I would have loved to have booked a first-class ticket . But I didn’t have the ability to upgrade to duffer till to comfort. If I want to so that’s something for me to consider but really I just want to know where I should sit an economy . so if you scroll down you’ll start to see that there’s some yellow there’s a some green here and it’s goanna give me someone no details. so if I’m high low high uh sorry highlighting and I see that it’s just this white seat it’s giving me the information that it’s just a standard economy seat nothing fancy is happening there. Now I’m highlighting over this yellow seat it’s telling me that there’s standard and exit row giving me a little bit more information as to that and then there’s some green ones here . Now this is a standard seat but it has extra legroom because the exit rows in front of it and there’s no seats here so that’s actually so maybe we should book these seats we’ll have to check with Delta up. They’re still available but it’s good to know and sometimes I actually keep this map open with the seat map for the airline I’m playing open next to it just so I can see a comparison of where the seats are. That are available versus what’s a good seat to be on something to be a very aware of are these red seats. In this way we can book the flights.
