Hopper

Hopper allows one to plan a trip based on a vague idea — like “spring surfing in California” or “Mediterranean cruise.”

Hopper spent years experimenting with different tools, technology and algorithms to collect, organize and manage massive amounts of travel data. The result is a new kind of trip planning engine, powered by a large structured database of travel information.

Hopper was founded in 2007, is based in Boston and Montreal and is backed by Brightspark, Atlas Venture and OMERS Ventures.
