Travelling requires thorough planning and preparation: you have to coordinate and book your airfare and hotel accommodation, as well as prepare your itinerary, travel documentation, and insurances ahead of time. This can be hard to do, but without planning a trip, your vacation will be chaotic.
To promote having more organized travels, Take Off Philippines partnered with TRAVELPROS Inc., one of the best travel agencies in the country since 1993 (Member of Philippine Travel Agencies Association (PTAA) and IATA) and the pioneers in mall-based ticketing operations, to help you out in all your travel-related concerns. Today, we’ve listed things you should consider while planning your next big trip with your family, friends, and loved ones.
1.) Do Your Research
Look for a review by using the following keywords: where to stay, what to see, and where to eat. You’ll save time looking for good spots in your next vacation if you look up these questions first. Read a blog and review other traveler’s itineraries to get tips and information on your next destination. Check out this page if you need an itinerary for your next trip.
2.) Ensure Your Safety
We all love discounts, especially when it comes to seat sales. We Filipinos love discounts that we even fall for airlines’ enticing “Piso Fare” promotions. However, we have to remember that while discounted airfares include taxes and surcharges for estimates, airlines usually exclude insurance packages to make the fare appear to be cheaper than usual. Nevertheless, we should not forget to have a budget for our travel insurance. Be protected and get travel insurance for your next trip.
3.) Prepare All Necessary Travel Documents
In every flight, you should always keep your travel documents and forms close to you so that it can be readily available should an immigration officer or airport security personnel asks for it. Make sure that you have all pertinent documents, such as your DFA-issued passport, unexpired visa, return ticket, Affidavit of Support with Undertaking, DSWD-issued Travel Clearance, and so on.
For hassle-free processing of your travel documents, contact TRAVELPROS and they’ll be glad to help.
4.) Schedule Your Activities
Before anything else, make sure that you’ll get your leave approved by checking out the list of holidays and long weekends in the Philippines for this year.
5.) Attend Travel Fairs to Get More Discounts and Deals
Every year, the travel community gathers in various travel expos. Here, you can get exclusive deals and travel packages for trips to Boracay, Palawan, Bohol, and Davao, among others. You’ll also find seat sales, discounted hotel accommodations, and all-in tour packages.
