Tita T Tips: 6 Hacks to Score Great Travel Deals

The common notion about traveling is that it’s expensive. While this may be true in many instances (especially if your destination requires passing through eight different time zones or so), it doesn’t mean that there’s no way to save and stretch your budget.

Check out these tips from Tita T on how to get the most value out of your bookings, be it on your hotel, flights, and even activities. Read on, aspiring titas:

1. Book early

Book trips early

Titas like to plan trips well in advance, and this comes with an advantage—not only do you get more options than those who book late, but you’ll more likely encounter cheaper prices when booking your flights, accommodations, and activities.

2. Try last-minute hotel bookings

Last-minute hotel bookings

This may seem contradictory than the previous tip, but even the most meticulous titas have to deal with spontaneous trips and short-notice getaways.

Many hotels offer last-minute deals especially when they aren’t fully booked yet. Take advantage of the situation and book that room right away! Just make sure you double-check all the details, as the payment for this type of booking is usually non-refundable in case of cancellations.

You can also check out the Traveloka App for its Last-Minute Hotel Deals, which can get you as much as 64% off on same-day hotel bookings.

3. Use Coupon Codes

Use Coupon like Tita

Ask any tita and they’ll tell you: Coupon codes are your friends. Before paying for your flight, hotel, or activity, check if a coupon code may be applied to the booking you are eyeing. Take note of these magic words so you can use them later for discounts.

Do note that most coupon codes are limited, so you need to use them as soon as you can.

4. Subscribe to Newsletters

Newsletter Subscribe

Be the first to know about the latest deals by subscribing to travel newsletters. More often than not, we ignore these emails thinking that they’re just spam. But titas know that they can be the key to travel savings. Make it a habit to check these updates to score the best discounts available.

5. Tap that push notification

Turn push notifications on

Don’t make the mistake of turning these notifications off! Push notifications appear to update you about promotions and offers that you can take advantage of. How will you know the details of a deal if you just ignore these reminders? Plus, they are meant to enhance your customer experience.

6. Follow Traveloka’s social media accounts
