Lightning Pitch: hopOn – Simple and social travel booking
The simple and social way to book travel.
Book flights from 400-plus airlines, choose from 170,000-plus hotels, and share travel expenses in a few clicks—hopOn makes discovering, planning, and booking travel simple, whether you’re traveling alone or with people, for vacation or a work trip.
Create a triplist…
Triplists are sharable itineraries—with flights, hotels, shared expenses, and more.
Friends get their own copy of your trip list and can fly from a new city, change dates, etc.
…and book in a click.
Everyone can book their flight, hotel and/or pay for shared expenses in a few clicks.
We believe our next-generation approach to the travel booking site will dramatically raise the bar on what people expect out of a travel booking site. For example, in addition to standard features like booking flights and hotels, we have brand new groundbreaking features like easily sharing a trip with a friend or colleague, who can book the flights, hotels, and pay you their share of a group expense in a few clicks. Our users can copy a whole trip a friend took just by picking a new start date and new departing airport.
