Whether you’re browsing vacation destinations on the toilet or looking at the best departure and arrival times on your next business trip, your mobile device (iPhone or Android) has all the answers you’d need. If you share the same conundrum as us – having to check over 50+ websites before booking a flight due to FOMO, we’ve got a solution for you.
Here are the 3 most essential flight booking mobile applications you’ll need to book the cheapest flights guaranteed.
What’s to love? Your wallet will be a big fan of Hopper. With call-outs on ways to save money by automatically optimizing for the cheapest flights based on your search. Hopper will find the cheapest flights by adjusting departure and arrival times. Hopper will also brief you on the fees associated with a particular booking (baggage fees, change fees, and extra charges). Above all, Hopper will allow you to create mobile notifications on flights that you’d like to watch, similar to stock prices, if Hopper detects a drop in your watched flight, Hopper will let you know through a mobile notification.
