We love the fall for so many reasons, and it’s not just because it’s pumpkin spiced everything season.
The awe-inspiring sunsets have returned and we can feel the air getting cooler here at Dohop headquarters in Iceland (after an unseasonably and greatly appreciated warm summer). Fall is definitely upon us.
This week is one of our favorite times of year, as it marks the beginning of the fall travel season, when business conferences begin, kids head off to school or start college and airfares plummet!
Long Distance Love 💜 😍 💜
While still difficult, being away from loved ones for long periods of time has never been easier, as there are so many ways to stay in touch.
Can you hear me now?
From Skype, WhatsApp, Viber, Tango, Facetime, Google Hangouts, everything Facebook, direct messages on Instagram and Twitter to business tools like Slack, Zoom, and newcomer Troop, you can share, chat and see your favorite people between highly anticipated reunions. Sending postcards, letters and unexpected treats in the mail is another great way to show someone they’re in your thoughts.
What are some of the ways YOU connect with loved ones while away?
Fall in love with cheap flights!
The correlation between the end of summer and the start of the fall travel season opens many great opportunities to plan and book travel to see those you miss so much. So, whether it’s your new summer romance, your long time love, family or a bestie, this is a great week to book your next big adventure together.
Whether you’re looking for flights from New York to Los Angeles, Paris to London, or Iceland to anywhere, Dohop has a few great ways to take advantage of the fall flight sales:
Dohop.com— our flight search engine is designed for ease-of-use with variable filters to help you customize your search for more precise personal results. We then populate your search results with both uniquely Dohop itineraries (see “self-connect” below) and itineraries from the over 1200 airline, airport and travel sites. We encourage you to use Dohop in your native language and currency and home country for a more comfortable user experience.
Flexible Fare Calendar— If you can be flexible about your flight days (in order to save money), the flex calendar, which appears after initial flight dates are selected, displays the lowest fares across +/- 3 days from the initially selected dates.
Dohop Flights App (available through google play and app store) has expanded beyond its simpler flight search in earlier iterations to enable you to have a powerful travel search engine on the go, with all of the filters and currency preferences you enjoy on Dohop’s desktop and mobile site. You can search and book flights, as well as save recent searches. You can also easily book hotels and car rentals. The Dohop Go feature is available as a “discovery” tool inside the app.
“Self Connect”— Dohop itineraries sometimes show a “Self Connect” label on the itinerary. These flight bookings are schedule-based, meaning we at Dohop automatically identify flight times globally (from thousands of airlines and airports) that complement each other. We then pair those flights together as itineraries, even if the airlines don’t have existing partnerships (such as low cost airlines or low cost-to-traditional airline itineraries), which can save you even more money and time while traveling.
