Discover great flights with Hopper

There’s a new app I ran across the other day to help you find the best flights — this could be very helpful when planning your next golf trip to Scotland or Ireland. It’s called Hopper and it’s available for download from the Apple AppStore.

From their website:

Hopper tells you when to fly and buy and scores you the lowest fares. Save up to 40% on your flight. Hopper predicts price changes for your trip, and tells you the right time to book. Data-driven advice shows you the cheapest times to fly, and how to save more by switching travel dates or airports. Push notifications keep you posted the instant prices drop, and before they’re about to rise.

For example, here’s a screen shot of a report from San Francisco (SFO) to Dublin, Ireland (DUB). It gives you an idea of how much a “good deal” flight would cost, the best times to go, when to book, and alternate airports to consider.

Their website also has an interesting Airline Fee Calculator, which includes the cost of baggage and other fees to help you determine your real flying cost between various airlines.

No excuses now. Plan that trip, book those flights … get hopping! 🙂
