Dohop is a travel search engine website based in Reykjavík, Iceland. It was founded in 2004 to aggregate and link low cost flight connections. In 2005, Dohop launched the world's first flight planner for low-cost airlines and later expanded it to include all scheduled flights worldwide,[3] amounting to 660 airlines.

Dohop is primarily a long tail aggregation agent that doesn't sell directly to the consumer, but refers the user to airline's booking engines. Dohop's income comes from pay per click advertising and from selling specialized search engines to airlines and airports. The company also operates an analytics department offering route network analysis and optimization suggestions to airlines and airports.

In 2006, Travelmole the company won the Web Awards in the category for best technology site,[4] and was selected as one of the Times Magazine 100 best travel sites in 2007.[5]

In 2014, Dohop won the World's Leading Flight Comparison Website award at the World Travel Awards[6] and subsequently won the award three years in a row in 2016,[7] 2017,[8] and 2018.[9]
