While sifting through flight and hotel booking platforms, I found a refreshingly new travel platform, Traveloka. Traveloka’s interface was one that I really liked simply because it was easy to navigate through.
Exploring the the travel booking site more and found some pretty cool features I thought were worth a mention.
After some research, I found out that Traveloka is one of the leading travel booking platform in Southeast Asia with a mission to make travelling simple and more compelling.
For all kinds of travellers, experienced or new, young or old, I’m pretty sure most of us want an easy yet detailed flight/hotel booking.
Now, I’d like to introduce you to Traveloka – where travel is made simple.
Their flight booking options are surprisingly simple and comprehensive. From its flight filter options, we can filter flight plans to whatever best suits our needs.
I find this feature to be the most crucial one. Their Price Range option – very handy for those working with tight budgets.
I personally prefer flying with airlines that I’m more familiar with, and on Traveloka, I could just select the few that I do want and filter out the rest.
Another thing that I’m particular about is my flight timing. I don’t want to have a flight scheduled during odd hours of the day like at 3am. What am I supposed to do ? Camp at Changi till my flight arrives? So yes, I’m grateful for the fact that Traveloka has these time period options.
See what I mean? Detailed, clean, and simple just to suit your needs.
Traveloka allows you to book hotels along with our flight bookings, so we can settle both at the same time.
Oh yeah, it’s not only their flight booking platform, their hotel booking platform makes it easily searchable too.
What if I want a pool? What if I need WiFi? What if? What if? What if?
We can filter hotels out by their facilities on top of price range, and hotel star rating. Plus, list the results by popularity, lowest and highest prices.
Sometimes, I get a bit paranoid and need to know if the hotels that I’ve shortlisted are reliable or not. And guess what, I discovered that Traveloka includes customer reviews and ratings on their listed hotels. I could say I’m a little more than relieved.
On top of all that, Traveloka even informs us of the hotel’s nearby attractions that we might want to check out. So if you find that you’ve run out of things to do on your itinerary, you could go visit some of these places.
Traveloka guarantees the most extensive search results and screens the cheapest flight fares and hotel rates for us to select from.
No more need to scavenge through the internet to double-check or triple-confirm with other airlines or hotels to ensure that we’ve got the cheapest prices.
Plus, if you create an account and log in, Traveloka has special hotel prices just for members!
Traveloka doesn’t just find the cheapest deals for us. It presents the most honest prices.
Unlike other booking platforms, the prices stated by Traveloka are upfront and with no hidden charges or taxes.
I really hate it when I’ve decided on a hotel after extensive research (price, location, facilities etc.) to find that I have to pay more than what was previously stated.
No booking fees or additional credit card charges to haunt us after we’ve arrived at the payment section, thank goodness.
I find this feature helps us to make more informed decisions about purchasing flight tickets/hotel bookings.
Traveloka ensures that customer support is available 24/7 through their three modes of customer service – via phone, email, and live chat.
Flight delays are frustrating enough, and you know what doesn’t help the situation? Slow replies from the company I’ve booked my flight from.
I find it exceptionally convenient that Traveloka has a live chat feature for any infuriating problems that might crop up during my travels.
Traveloka has an App. That means that all our flight/hotel booking information can be easily accessed and managed while we’re on the move (including requesting for refunds).
No more need to comb through our emails if we want to retrieve booking information anymore.
The Traveloka App can be downloaded from Google Play or the App Store for FREE.
For those who need to make bookings in a rush, Traveloka has a one-minute booking option on their app.
It saves passenger/hotel guest information so we don’t have to keep typing in our details over and over again.
We simply have to save all your information once, make a 1-click payment, and we’ll get instant ticket issuance.
