Why The Traveloka App Is My Key To Budget Travel

You’re reading this for two reasons, either you are planning to travel on a budget or you’d like to get info about Traveloka, just in case.

I started using Traveloka back in February 2017. Since then, every flight and hotel I book, I head to the app. I visited Cagayan de Oro a month ago and I used the Traveloka App to book a hotel. I recently flew to Manila and again, used Traveloka App to book. To be honest, I have not used another booking app ever since.

I’ll get straight to the point then.

Here are 3 reasons why you should choose the Traveloka App when traveling on budget:

1. You can save more using In-App purchases

Download the Traveloka App, log in as a member and get more savings. The prices featured in the app are cheaper than those found on the website. I did some comparingand a lot of hotel and flight offers in the app does let you save at least P20 and above. It’s not much but when you are on a budget, every peso counts, especially when you’re group booking.


2. Get Alerts for Airfare Price Changes

The Price Alerts tab is found at the app’s home page. You can turn them on by adding flight or hotel information such as the destination, date, and such. This would let the app alert you of price discounts coming your way.  That means you won’t have to constantly check for discounts all the time.

3. Flight discounts are up (almost) EVERY DAY

I reckon only very few booking sites offer huge discounts for both flight and hotel. For the flight destinations, they have international and domestic. For the hotels, they feature from the cheapest to the best.

One of the few reasons why I like Traveloka is that every time I open the app, the “Promos” tab is always on highlight.

Recently, I got a round trip flight (Cagayan de Oro-Manila) for only P1,543, for both originating and returning.

Yes, you read that right. Traveloka featured a 30% off discount for flights, it was very “sulit” since I got P800 off. That helped me save a lot.


I will be flying this July and now I have less reasons to worry about my budget since the Traveloka App has been a great help.

So there you go. Hope I helped you for your next budget trip! Download the Traveloka App and don’t forget to turn on your price alerts so you won’t miss any huge discounts! Happy traveling 😉
