Capital One is partnering with travel booking site Hopper to power the new Capital One Travel website. The new partnership comes after a successful round of series F funding, led by Capital One. Here is everything you need to know about the new Capital One/ Hopper partnership, including when the new CapitalOneTravel.com will launch.
Capital One Travel with Hopper Launches
Capital One has a new travel portal exclusively available to select Capital One Rewards credit cardholders. The bank is joining with travel portal Hopper to offer exclusive discounts to cardholders when booking travel online.
Hopper is a Canada-based travel website that recently raised more than $170 million in series F funding. That investment fundraiser was overseen by Capital One, which is now tapping Hopper for its new Capital One Travel website.
Capital One’s new partnership with Hopper will see the United States’ fourth-largest credit card issuer utilize Hopper’s unique interface to power CapitalOneTravel.com. Hopper differs from other travel booking platforms in that it uses artificial intelligence to tell consumers when they should book flights or hotels.
About Capital One Travel
The new CapitalOneTravel.com, powered by Hopper, recently launched. The site provides a streamlined booking experience for Capital One Rewards cardholders, including the popular flagship Capital One Venture Card. Cardholders enjoy complimentary Price Drop Protection on flight bookings, meaning they’ll be refunded the difference for any additional changes to fares between booking and take-off. Customers will also enjoy a best price guarantee on flights, hotels, and car rental bookings.
Access to CapitalOneTravel.com is available to eligible Capital one credit cardholders, namely those with a U.S.-issued Capital One Rewards card, including:
Eligible cardholders will also have access to Capital One Lounges at select airports across the United States. The card issuer is currently applying the finishing touches to three airport lounge locations: Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, Terminal D, Denver International Airport, Concourse A, Denver International Airport, Concourse A, and Dulles International Airport in the Main Terminal directly after TSA PreCheck.
