  1. I haven’t tried booking or reserving a hotel in any booking platforms. I always call or email directly on the website of my chosen hotel. Does offers discounted rates like Agoda?

  2. I haven’t tried this but will definitely consider on booking our hotel for our next family trip. Juanderlust campaign sounds a lot of fun! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am a wanderlust, and so are my family. We love to travel. I would like to consider that idea of having my own “travel agency” one day. πŸ™‚ Hubby and I are both in the airline industry. I used to be a travel agent too so selling holiday packages is one of my forte.

  4. Wow! Thanks for the info they do affiliate programs din pala πŸ™‚ Love that they promote domestic tourism β™‘

  5. It’s good that they cater locally and promote our country as well, haven’t tried this one yet but will consider if ever we’d plan our next trip.

  6. I first heard here! It looks very helpful in terms of convenience. I might try this one for our trip to Baguio. Great one Cheryl!

  7. That guy who won the #Juanderlust sure is a lucky one..I’m happy that Travelbook is promoting tourism in the Philippines. It is my belief that there is still a lot of tourism potential in the country that has been left untapped.

  8. I use for local travels too. The first time I used is was for a trip to Guimaras. My booking experience was very good, efficient and worry free.

  9. I have used Travelbook twice already and both time has given me no issues at all. I like this website.

  10. I think I got an email from them a few months back but I never got the chance to go through it. I’ll keep this in mind when I need to book our next vacation next year. πŸ™‚

  11. So many wonderful travel apps nowadays. Good thing that this caters locally and also internationally. Haven’t tried this one yet, but hopefully soon.

  12. Thanks for sharing this. Convenience is really a necessity these days, lalo na for busy moms like us πŸ™‚

  13. I really love that Juanderlust slogan! What an amazing company. I hope they achieve their goals of empowering the Filipinos to travel and enjoy our country more! πŸ™‚

  14. is really a nice platform for the wanderlust peeps out there! I would love to consider this when we start to travel as a family na rin.

  15. Heard so much about Travelbook. It check on this kind of service and at the same time have big savings.

  16. Thanks for this insightful post sis, my tita and I are looking for a site that provides this service

  17. Ahhh, Summit Media pala ang, I won’t be surprised if they release a Travel Book Magazine in the future πŸ™‚

  18. To be honest, I don’t really plan our travels. If I need to make a reservation, I usually go straight to the hotel :)) Nonetheless, what I like about these services is that it is convenient since you can make comparisons narin with other hotels πŸ™‚
