How to find 'secret' discounted airfare
Finding cheap airfare can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. 澳門上海機票 It’s hard to know when prices will drop, but a new booking feature could help you snag low fares as soon as they become available.
On May 1, Hopper launched a new feature called Secret Fares. By partnering with select airlines, the flight prediction site will now offer exclusive discounted flights to customers. Tickets will be up to 35% cheaper than on other booking sites, and customers can expect to save up to $500 on long-haul flights.
Secret Fares is currently available for customers in North America for over 60,000 routes to destinations like Tokyo, Paris and Barcelona. There are currently six airlines participating, including Air Canada, LATAM, Turkish, WestJet, Copa, and Air China, with hopes of adding more airlines. Since Hopper is a mobile-only app, carriers can lower prices and secure earlier bookings without sparking a fare war online because push notifications are a private channel.
If you’ve already downloaded Hopper, the Secret Fares feature will work automatically.
“Once you search and you get to the prediction screen, the app will say if there are Secret Fare routes available on that route,” said Dakota Smith, head of growth and business at Hopper.
