When travelling locally or abroad, it is always wise to book your hotel accommodation earlier to
be able to get the best deals on hotel rooms and get the best room available as well. As a
frequent traveler I have tried a lot of travel apps that I have learned from my friends. There are a
lot of choices but one of the best travel apps I have come to know is the Traveloka App because
they don’t have hidden charges. I have tried another app last year and was upset because when
we arrived at the hotel, we paid for a tax fee that I thought was already included in our booking
thinking that we have saved money but then again, it wasn’t the case.
So this time, I made sure that there will be no additional charge or any hidden charges upon
check-in and I am glad that Traveloka delivered.
Let me share with you our SEDA Centrio experience that we booked via Traveloka.
I am a cheapskate and I admit that, I don’t usually spend on hotel rooms during business trips
because I don’t spend huge amount of time inside the hotel. But when we are with the kids, we
make sure we booked big hotel rooms and hotel with swimming pools so the kids will enjoy it.
We have not tried SEDA Centrio before because it is one of the most expensive business hotels
available in Cagayan de Oro City. I am glad that I have learned about Traveloka and was able
to book through them because they have huge discounts for bookings and no additional
I booked for a CLUB type of room which has a lot of perks compared to other rooms like
complimentary use of DVD Player (on request) and complimentary late check-out until 2:00pm.
The room is spacious and it has 2 beds (which is perfect because we have 2 kids). SEDA
Centrio is sure a business hotel, they have a big working table with a desk lamp and a swivel
I can work if I want to but I am here for a staycation with the kids so I stick to the plan.
My kids favor beautiful bathrooms and their wish was granted. SEDA Centrio has a bathroom
that fits their requirement. It has toiletries that we can use, I left ours at home. And the Flat
Screen TV was enormous.
I was able to book this staycation to a beautiful hotel and like me, you can have this room for a
lesser price. Just download the Traveloka App in your App Store for free. Sign-up and you can
find a lot of choices anywhere in the Philippines and international.
First, tap “Hotels” then key in your destination, desired dates, how many days of hotel stay and
how many rooms you would like to get. The prices that Traveloka gives you are final, no hidden
charges or extra fees upon check-in, I can assure you about that.
After that, you have to input your contact details and special requests after choosing your hotel
Another great thing is that there are many different payment methods
available. You can pay through bayad centers, 711 stores, banks or credit cards. Traveloka will
then give you a voucher, and send a copy through your email ad and will text you for details
about your booking.
Upon check-in, just bring with you your Valid ID and your voucher (maybe printed or not, the
hotels honors that). I love Traveloka because they offer a lot of discounts, you can find promo
codes online, and save a lot of money by booking through them. You can input the promo code
before payment and it will automatically deduct a portion of it from the booking you have find.
What are you waiting for? Download the Traveloka App now and have the staycation you
always dreamed of.
