If you are responsible for booking flights yourself, you want to have a great app that will help you find the cheapest flights you can. Not only can this app make it easier to find cheap flights, but it may also win you some extra points with accounting!
Hopper works by constantly scanning the internet for cheap flights that are on or around the days you need to travel. It will recommend the cheapest times and days to fly and you can set an alert so that anytime the prices drop, you can be quick to snatch up the deal.
You can buy the flights directly through the app as well, so you’re just a touch away from booking the cheapest flights you can. The app is easy to use and has a good-looking display that makes finding flights fun and easy.
This app has exploded in popularity over the few years, and for good reason. It puts you in touch with homeowners who are willing to rent their homes to you, for one night, one week or however long you may need to stay.
You can choose homes from price range to neighborhoods and nearby attractions so you can find the right home for your stay. This also lets you see a city from a new perspective, one of a real homeowner rather than the typical hotel views.
The app can also help you find bars, restaurants and other things to do during your stay, so you can unwind when you have a little downtime.
