After my 2-month visit in Thailand, I decided to go to Singapore before I headed back to Manila using Traveloka. Looking for the flight that best fits my budget and time is sometimes stressful. You have to open different airline websites, check different dates, time and prices.
Gladly, I discovered an app called Traveloka. I heard about the app through their captivating social media and TV ads. I can say that the company has a good marketing strategy that’s why I’m not surprised why Traveloka is now one of the fastest growing tech companies providing online booking service for flights and hotels in South East Asia.
I usually book my flights directly through airline websites whenever I travel. But what made me decide to book my flight via Traveloka? Here’s what I discovered.
- Traveloka App is easy to navigate
When you open the Traveloka App, the first thing you will notice is its clean and organized home page. Mostly white and light blue, Traveloka’s homepage is minimalist and straightforward–no excessive advertisements. Everything that you need is right in front of you. The message of their homepage is direct to the point and easy to understand.
This is how you book an international flight via Traveloka:
After clicking international flight on the home page, the screen will show the page where you need to key in the details of your travel plan.
- Simply type in the Origin and Destination Flights
- The Departure date and swipe the button right if you want to book a round trip flight
- Choose how many passengers
- Pick your preferred seat class
Simply click on the search button and wait for Traveloka App to do its magic!
- Variety of Flights in just 1 App
Traveloka App will save you time in looking for and comparing flights, whether you want to book seats from Philippine Airlines, AirAsia, or other airlines. Traditionally, we open 3 or more airline websites, key in all the same details repeatedly and wait for the results. After that, we view all the browsers to check prices and flight details. That’s time-consuming. Thankfully, Traveloka App makes our life easier.
After clicking on the search button, the app will do its job to search for the all possible flight schedules. The best thing is the prices they show are the final ones. No need to mock book each flight to see the total. Traveloka App includes airline fees and taxes.
Usually, Traveloka App will show up to ten results. Finding the best flight that will match your budget is made easier because of the sort and filter option.
- You can have your own “My account”
Having your own profile is advantageous in many ways. You can save all your details including name, contact number, passport details and card details for faster booking transaction. Traveloka guarantees that your data are confidential.
Their Help Center is also integrated in the app. Live chat is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So in case you need help, their customer support got you covered.
- You can set Price Alerts
Be the first to know when airfare changes. This is something unique about Traveloka App and it’s easy to set.
- Simply tap My account and Price Alerts.
- Enter your flight details
- And Traveloka App will notify you in case there are any price changes on your target flight.
This will save you more time on waiting for the best rate of your target flights and you will be ensured that Traveloka App will be there to notify you.
Also, you can subscribe to their newsletter, so you won’t miss out on their updates and promos.
- There are many payment options
We always think that we need a credit card in booking flights. Well, that was probably before. With Traveloka App, you have different options in paying for your flight. Since I don’t have a credit card, so I usually pay using my Visa debit card.
Other payment options are:
- Over the counter such us 711, M Lhuillier, and Cebuana Lhuillier
- Bank deposit through BDO, BPI, Metrobank, UCPB, RCBC and ChinaBank
On the “Select Payment” page, you will see how much time you have to complete your transaction. Once you decide on your payment method, there is a detailed instruction on how you can complete your transaction.
- They always give discounts!
This is the main reason why I love Traveloka. They never run out of promos. They are generous to their customers. At the top portion of the app’s homepage, you will easily notice their ongoing promo that will give you big savings on your travel.

I’m glad that I discovered and downloaded Traveloka App. It’s now my number 1 option in booking flights. It’s fast, easy, safe and reliable. In fact, because of their promo, I was able to book my flight to Manila from Singapore for only P4,200 with 15 kg extra luggage last May!
