6 Reasons Why I Book Flights Using Traveloka

Singapore Chinatown

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 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.

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.

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

Traveloka App give you wide options to pay your booking.

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! If you’re not a Traveloka App user yet, you should download the app now!


  • Hi ask ko lang if yung mga taxes and fees kasama na sa total? Thank you

  • first search PPS-CEB 25 October and it won’t even show the cheapest option with Air Asia. Best to stick with kayak or skyscanner and then book directly with the airline. Might not be the cheapest option but makes it a lot easier to manage in case of changes/amendments/cancellations as it avoids the middle man. Travel agencies are known for obscure administration fees.

    • Hello Abraxas,

      Good day!

      I mock booked the PPS-Ceb flight on October 25. Yes I agree that it didn’t show the cheapest flight of Airasia. which is 1,515php see breakdown for your reference -1 × 1,166.00 PHP Fares 849.11 PHP Aviation Security Fees 15.00 PHP Domestic passenger service charge 200.00 PHP VAT 101.89 PHP 1,515.00 PHP but you can still get the cheapest flight of Cebu Pacific at 1,433 tax included plus Traveloka have a promo code this week *FlyLabor which will less 10% on your fligh. Total will be around 1290php. It will save you 225php if you book with Traveloka. Thanks for reading my article.

  • […] just the app that I’m using for hotel booking, it’s also my top choice when it comes to booking my local and international flights. It has the best features, one of which is its ability to present multiple airline options.This […]

  • Hi. Want to ask if I chose 0 ba sa baggage, mkakapag check in ba ako ng standard sized luggage o need ko sya bayaran?

    • Hello Leana,

      Verify ko lang medyo na confused ako sa question. if you choose 0 sa baggage. Bakit ka mag ccheck in ng luggage? You are still allowed mag hand carry which is 7kgs most of the airline. But since you choose 0 sa baggage allowance. Wala ka ng babayaran, wala ka na ding ma ccheck in. Please let me know if I understand you correctly.

      Thank you!

  • Hi!just want to ask if the ph travel tax (1620) already included when booking with traveloka for international flight? Thanks!

    • Hello Domie,

      Depende sa Airline. Check nyo po yung price details. When I booked my Taiwan flight with EVA air Kasama na sya 🙂

  • Thanks Cai for this tip about flights using Traveloka.

    Once certainly can’t have enough options for finding cheap flights, and if they have many promotions – even better!

    Will look into it and explore, as I’m considering Singapore (again) and Malaysia soon

    Thanks for the heads up, and keep up the great work on the blog 🙂

  • Never heard of this app. I will look into it. Looks pretty cool.

  • I’ve never heard of this app until now but I’ll check it out. It sounds really useful. Thanks for sharing the information.

  • Well, I just moved to China and I’m just starting to figure out the best apps and websites for booking travel. You make a good case for Traveloka and I have a week holiday coming up soon, so I’ll be sure to check it out!

  • Thanks for telling us about this app. I’m European but currently traveling in SEA. So it might actually be a good alternative to Skyscanner and Google Flights.

    Happy travels!

  • I’d never heard of it either. Is it strongest with service in that part of Asia i.e. are they looking at that area as their niche?

  • We never heard of Traveloka. We are so used to Kayak and SkyScanner that we have the blind eye a little bit on anything else! Will check it out!

  • I’d heard of Traveloka but have never actually booked a flight through them. I tend to use my laptop for booking but I do compare prices on my phone, so maybe I’ll download the app and take a look. Thanks for the recommendation!

  • Sounds like a really handy app! Does it work outside SE Asia too?

  • I’ve never heard of Traveloka before but I’m definitely going to check it out now. As a frequent traveler, I love finding new apps that help make the process easier – and less expensive!

  • I have never heard of this app or company. Is it just mainly Asian countries which use this or can it be used in any country in the world?
