Dohop, a flight finder located in Reykjavik, is similar to Expedia or Orbitz but much more user-friendly. Dohop is a flight finder that finds the best prices for hotels, flights, and car rental. Its resources include more than 1,200 travel agencies and airlines.
These are the top reasons to book your next Dohop flight!
It was founded in 2004 by Icelander Frosti Sigurjonsson who was trying to find low-cost flights from France to Iceland. There weren’t many flights from continental Europe to Iceland back then. People often struggled to find connections.
Dohop offers a solution. Instead of searching for the lowest price between airlines or codeshares, Dohop searches for all routes and often matches legs from different budget airlines. These “self-connect” flight options allow passengers to save money by booking tickets with two or more airlines that are not related.
Dohop’s website says, “Travel should not be complicated.” They recently redesigned their website to make travel fun.
It is very simple to use. The color-coded menu bar, casual language and approachable design make it easy to explore the world. If you need a property for a short time or a hotel that is a good fit for your needs, you can search hotels by either city or theme.
Dohop offers a special section called Travel Guides. This allows you to filter countries by airlines that fly there, by airlines by countries they fly, or by low-cost carriers by continent. The blog has posted a collection of graphs showing the growth in world tourism. These graphs range from the most popular tourist attractions (Las Vegas is the top) to the contribution of tourism to global economic activity.
Dohop Go is my favorite feature of the site. Dohop Go is a unique feature that encourages travelers to travel on their own terms. Simply enter your time and months and it will show you the cheapest flights available from your airport. If you feel fanciful, you can simply book your flight.
The app can be downloaded for Android and iOS. You can search for flights anywhere you are on your smartphone.
Dohop was honored with numerous awards including Best Technology Website by TravelMole 2006, Best Travel Website By Time Magazine 2007 and World’s Leading Flight Comparison Site at the World Travel Awards 2014.
Dohop was awarded the Icelandic Innovation Award in 2016. This award is highly prestigious and includes past winners such as EVE Online’s creators and Blue Lagoon resort’s founders.
