A new flight and hotel booking service called Hopoptions has launched to compete with leading online travel services, Wakanow and Travelstart.
The service (currently in beta) features a domestic airline flight aggregator service, which provides quick, accurate and user-friendly comparisons for travellers booking flights within Nigeria with plans to add international flights in the coming months.
While finding flights and hotels online could be a hassle most times, Hopoptions wants to help customers find it easier using its platform and pay directly online with their Naira Mastercard or Verve card.
Using its filter search, users can narrow their search based on individual preferences such as time, price, number of stops, ticket class, or any other criteria.
However, some of the searches for flights and hotels we did only showed up one or two results from local airlines and hotels, so we’re guessing that since the platform is relatively new, it would add more service providers in the future.
While the service does not operate as a travel agent like Wakanow, it does provide customers with the most accurate alternatives for their indicated itineraries, without any bias.
