With more rain and gloomy skies to be expected in the coming days and months, a trip up north with colder breeze and pine trees sound like the perfect escape. It’s actually been a while since Beep and I went on a trip, with the last one being a beach trip last May. Since it’s Beep’s birthday this coming August, we thought why not book a hotel in Baguio for some much-needed R&R and do some ukay-ukay (thrift store) shopping, which Beep is an expert in, believe it or not.
Last week, Beep and I booked a flight using the Traveloka App
and got big savings because of all the neat tricks and features of the app that we’ve discovered. Aside from the flight booking feature, it also lets you book hotels
. Since we we were so impressed, we used the app too to book a room in the Grand Sierra Pines Hotel
in Baguio for the long weekend next month. And as expected, we got the best deal for the hotel too just as we did with the flights.
If you’re planning a trip or a staycation anytime soon, you should definitely book your hotel with Traveloka App
. Here’s why:
If you’re one of those people who always find yourself on the lookout for seat sales and staying up until midnight to battle for the limited discounted plane seats, you know all too well that scoring cheap plane tickets take a lot of patience, fast typing skills, and of course, stable Internet connection.
We know your struggle. As budget travelers, we enjoy our trips more when we know that we didn’t have to shell out a ton of cash to fly to/from our destination. That’s why even if it means having sleepless nights, we battle it out online during seat sales to get those good deals.
We’ve blogged before about our tips and tricks to getting better airfare deals. While those tried and tested tips still help us bag awesome cheap flights, we wanted more ways to get bigger savings – and we’ve found an answer in Traveloka App.
We won’t be able to go on budget travels in the first place if it wasn’t for Beep (the Hobo) who introduced me to this travel lifestyle. Before I started traveling with Beep back in 2012, an overnight trip with just a small bag was unthinkable for me. Beep, who has been climbing mountains in the Philippines for about 10 years then, is an expert in the outdoors and can survive with just a small backpack (or even a bindle!) – that’s why he’s called a Hobo, he looks like one too.
If there’s one thing that I learned from him after years of traveling together to mountains and islands, it’s how to pack light for a hassle-free travel on a shoestring budget. We bought some of ours here in the Philippines while the others are from Amazon that we bought and shipped via halpU.com
Here are some of our must-haves that we’ve invested in so far that we think every budget traveler should save up for:
Love makes you do crazy things. It can make you jump out of a plane, propose on bended knee in Batanes, and shout to the world that you want to grow old and spend forever with each other. That’s exactly what our first featured Hobo Love, Will Travel couple (and two of our favorite people in the world) did – Deej and Joni.
Don’t you ever wonder how some people can afford to travel constantly despite not being CEOs or millionaires? Traveling is considered as a luxury. A mere day on paradise, getting a relaxing massage by the beach or soaking up the sun to get a tan with a pink lemonade in hand can cost a fortune. That is why most people only go on vacations a few number of times each year (or in their entire lifetime). I was one of those people too, before I started traveling with Beep who is known for being a cheapskate traveler.
Is it really possible to go on a vacation every weekend or every chance you get without breaking the bank? And the answer to that is… a big resounding yes!
