I've been using Gopher for well over a month now and can say the experience has been great. Receiving cash back on every trip I book has enabled me to travel more and worry about prices less.

Pros:

It's completely free to use and it makes me money!

Very intuitive and essentially requires no additional work.

Cons:

None, and there are no noteworthy alternatives.

I was recently introduced to Gopher so I didn't get to use it over summer when I booked a reservation, but for my next trip/vacation, I will definitely use Gopher.

Pros:

It reminds me of Honey which gives deals and cash back when online shopping, and to have that for deals and cash back on hotels is amazing!

Cons:

None.

Great to hear you love the concept. I would love to know your thoughts on user experience after you’ve booked with Gopher's help! By the way, the key differences between Gopher and Honey is that 1) Gopher work with all hotels versus a subset, and 2) You still qualify for the hotel's loyalty rewards, points, perks, and other personalized benefits because you're booking directly with the hotel.

Booking direct is the way to go. Earn loyalty points, plus cash back.

Pros:

I earned cash back and was able to redeem for Bitcoins on top of earning my loyalty points at Marriott.

Cons:

Can't think of one.

If only I had a gopher for airfare and rentals as well, I would probably go on more business trips as I would spend less time administratively planning them...

Pros:

Gopher is easy to use, non-intrusive and an amazing time-saver. Everyone who travels should use gopher, whether for pleasure or business!

Cons:

None so far

It’s really just an easy way to get the best price on a hotel without going to a million different websites. I use Expedia a lot - mainly just for the convenience of seeing all of the hotels in the area - but have had my fair share of problems with it. This seems like it could really wipe out those issues once all hotels are available for instant booking.

Pros:

Easy and clear to use . The saving are amazing

Cons:

Wish it worked instantly in all hotels

I would recommend it to anyone

Pros:

They have the best deals on any hotel in the world and on top of that I got with cash back... 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 🤜🏻🤛🏻

Cons:

Haven't found any yet

Reminds me of Honey, but for hotels. I don’t travel often, so it’s nice to have him pop up and remind me there are better rates- instead of having to remember a site or an app every time I want to book a hotel.

Pros:

Saving money! its great having someone always there to get the best available deal is a huge plus for me

Cons:

seems like the “digging” is a little slow sometimes - would love a quicker pop up.

The charitable donation redemption option is awesome. I book travel for work pretty often, so that’s a cool way to use rewards earned from business travel

Pros:

Cash back. All of the cash back redemption options. Really simple to use.

Cons:

None that I can think of right now
