Capital One Travel Powered by Hopper Will Launch in Late 2021
Capital One and travel-tech unicorn Hopper have announced a long-term partnership, collaborating to create Capital One Travel, a brand-new, innovative customer-booking experience built for Capital One cardholders. Today, Hopper also announced that it closed a Series F round of US $170 million, led by Capital One.
Capital One Travel, powered by Hopper, will launch in late 2021. That is also when travel is expected to make a significant return. The portal will pair Hopper’s best-in-class technology and capabilities with Capital One’s customer-first, digital approach. Capital One Travel will offer a new and innovative way to book travel, including benefits specifically for cardholders such as;
- Best-in-class price prediction and alert technology, integrating with Hopper’s AI to provide dynamic pricing and recommendations when booking flights, hotel, and rental cars.
- At a time when people value flexibility in travel more than ever, Capital One Travel will offer unique products and servicing capabilities to help customers easily change or cancel their reservations.
- The portal will be integrated into the Capital One rewards ecosystem, allowing customers to both earn and redeem rewards through this Hopper-powered platform, while also leveraging Capital One’s industry-leading mobile app and digital messaging capabilities.
