Hopper is an app that uses big data to predict and analyze airfare. Hopper provides travelers with the information they need to get the best deals on flights, and notifies them when prices for their flights are at their predicted lowest points.

Hopper is on a mission to build the most customer-centric travel company on earth.

Hopper was founded in 2007 by Frederic Lalonde and Joost Ouwerkerk. The company is headquartered in Montreal, QC, with offices in New York, Boston and Sofia, Bulgaria.


Hopper is leveraging the power that comes from combining massive amounts of data and machine learning to build the world’s fastest-growing mobile first travel marketplace -- one that enables our customers to save money and travel better.


Hopper has launched several bespoke fintech products that leverage our immense first and third-party data to create products and value that do not exist elsewhere - including Refundable and Flexible Tickets and Price Freeze.


Hopper also launched Hopper Cloud, a B2B offering that provides the benefits of Hopper’s machine-learning power price prediction, as well as its fintech travel insurance and disruption prevention products.


Hopper is backed by WestCap, Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ), Accomplice, Capital One, Inovia Capital, Brightspark, OMERS, BDC IT Venture Fund, Citi Ventures and others. The company raised $170M in Series F round on Mar 24, 2021. This brings Hopper's total funding to $423.7M to date.
