Buy or Wait? Using (big) data & analytics to save money on travel with Patrick Surry of Hopper

Buying travel has historically been time-consuming and painful, with pricing that’s complex, confusing and always changing.

Hopper’s data-driven recommendations and predictions on the best time to fly and buy build trust, save time, and reduce frustration, creating valuable long-term relationships with our customers.
