Budget Airlines

We are fortunate that there are many budget airlines around us, we can follow their regular promotions and ticket deals to choose the best offer for our dream holidays! Budget airlines in Singapore include Tiger Airways, Jetstar Asia, Cebu Pacific, Air Asia and Scoot. From BQ’s experience, Air Asia always provides cheapest tickets after the well-known accident, but they are working hard to give their passengers the best flight experience. Tiger Airways is also cheap and it is generally punctual for flight departure. The space and seats of Scoot is more comfortable, but there were negative feedbacks about delaying the flight up to several days. For taking budget airlines, a gentle reminder is to read up the terms and conditions for change of ticket timing, passenger’s name as well as the restrictions for baggage weight.

Top Airline Deals

Other than saving costs, it is equally vital to pamper yourself with a good travel journey!

Travel Search Engines

Other than airlines’ official websites, it is wise to use some travel search engines, they are like agents who help you sort out all the useful information as your travel guides. Some suggestions of travel engines include ZUJI, SKYSCANNER, EXPEDIA, AIRASIAGO and some others. When you enter your destination and date in the search engine, a list of results will come out for your decision. The results include top airlines such as Singapore Airline and budget airlines such as Air Asia. If you think these are not enough, try agents such as ebookers, FlightNetwork.com, travelgenio.com, eDreams, bravofly and via.com. A gentle reminder to take note of the currency change of different agents! And you can always find out coupon codes from BQ.sg that can apply to your booking at the respective travel search engines.

 

Deal Websites

As Singaporeans, we love deals! Even before BQ is dating someone at a confirmed location, BQ will search for the nearby deals to see whether we can make full use of it. This is called LOVE for saving and of course, LOVES for life. Out of several hot deal websites, Deal.com.sg and Groupon are the most famous sites with their loyal fans that search on their engines on a daily basis. For deal.com.sg, you can refer to deal.com.sg for their newly established travel deals such as SGD$228 Bali for 4D3N Stay At 4-Star Amadea Resort & Spa, Seminyak and SGD$279 Hong Kong NETT Price Special: 2-Way Air Ticket via United Airlines (Min 2 Pax). For Groupon site, you can refer to Groupon.sg to enjoy deals such as SGD$199 Avillion Port Dickson: Hari Raya Haji Departure: 2D1N Stay for 1 Person in Water Chalet with Breakfast & Return Coach and SGD$404 Costa Victoria Cruise: 5D4N Stay for 1 Person in Ocean View Cabin with Meals.

Bored of traditional ways of traveling? BQ would like to introduce to you my personal experiences of using Airbnb and Couchsurfing internationally. Airbnb is a site for you to rent unique places to stay from local hosts in more than 190 countries. This is how it works: Discover amazing places by doing research on Airbnb- Book the rental by connecting with hosts and confirming dates- Pay through trusted online channel of Airbnb- Travel just like feeling at home and getting to know the real local life.
