February is hubby’s birth month but since he is away from home due to his job overseas, we can’t really throw the best party for him. Since he is due to arrive on the same month as well for his much awaited vacation, me and my kids thought of giving him a surprise get away the day after he arrived. Since we don’t have enough time to plan for everything as we are also busy with ongoing projects at home, I’ve decided to look for a travel booking App that would help me decide and book with much ease.
I have chosen Traveloka not only because it’s pretty much new and I want to see how it differs from other travel booking apps but also because I’ve been reading a lot of good recommendations about this from friends. Some may still opt to go through the traditional way of booking by going through a travel agency and letting it do everything for you, but I think it’s more convenient to do it by yourself right in your own desk or even when you’re out there in the mall. Downloading this App would enable you to search for flights and hotels and compare prices based from your specifications in no time. Well, that’s a lot more convenient than spending call credits trying to contact your travel agency only to find out that all their lines are busy.
After much consideration, I downloaded the App and in a little while, I already found myself looking for the best weekday or weekend escapade.Initially, we wanted a “mini vacation” in a beach resort in Zambales but this App allowed us to choose from a variety of hotels available in that area complete with all the hotel descriptions, activities and attractions that each could offer which I find to be very convenient. Not only that, it comes with reviews from previous visitors so you could absolutely get all the unbiased reviews based from the experiences of the previous travelers which is also a good thing as this could help you decide on what hotel to choose.
This App is so easy to navigate, you just type the destination of your choice in the search box and a list of hotel recommendations would already be available right before your eyes. You will be asked to write down the date of your trip, number of guests, rooms and the number of nights you will stay and the App would search everything for you. Easy peasy!
As to the payment method, the App allows you to pay through your Credit Card, banks, and over the counter from selected establishments like 7/11. What I love more about this booking app is the additional discounts extended to Traveloka members from their ongoing promos.
Now, everything is all set for our next trip. I am sure that hubby would have a great time in our forthcoming Zambales escapade more so that the family will be complete again. My kids are equally excited for another family adventure at Casa San Miguel. We’ve been hearing a lot of great reviews for this hotel and we can’t wait to see more of their facilities and participate in one or more of their activities.
Will be posting a separate review of our stay soon!
