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

It is known that Singapore Airline SIA has been one of the top airlines in the world. Singaporeans are considered as one of the top world travellers in the global. Thus, it is important to get to know the regular promotions of SIA and some other famous airlines such as Royal Dutch Airlines and Cathay Pacific. Other than saving costs, it is equally vital to pamper yourself with a good travel journey! BQ is much updated to such deals and we will always inform our fans the latest promotions and offers, for you to book in advanced before everyone else gets it! Some recent promotions that BargainQueen recommended are:

  • Singapore Airline: Bangkok from SGD$218, Hong Kong from SGD$248, Guangzhou from SGD$368 etc. A gentle reminder to accumulate your KrisFlyer points!
  • Royal Dutch Airlines: Bali from SGD$230, Denpasar from SGD$149, Milan from SGD$1179 etc.
  • Cathay Pacific: Korea all-inclusive from SGD$532, Hong Kong from SGD$248, Shanghai from SGD$418 etc.

 

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. A gentle reminder to follow BQ's travel page for the last minute sitewide discounts for these two sites!

 

Unique Ways to Enjoy Travelling- Airbnb and Couchsurfing

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. Couchsurfing is another cool stuff nowadays, it is not only suitable for youngsters, but for all the travellers who love to taste new things and know new friends from other cultures. This is how it feels- “See, I have got friends in London!” “Italy as well!” Couchsurfing is a service that connects members to a global community of travellers. Use Couchsurfing to find a place to stay or share your home and hometown with travellers. For more information, please refer to https://www.airbnb.com.sg and https://www.couchsurfing.com/

Tips: invited by BargainQueen and get extra credit when you register with Airbnb.

 

Best Credit Cards to Use for Travellers

Another practical and worth way of saving is to earn Airmile points! As a habit and a general trend, BQ realized many households are travelling on a half-year basis with the whole family. In such case, it is important to have some Airmiles credit cards in hand to earn points and rewards for the entire family! Some suggested credit cards are 1.  American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascend Credit Card 2.  UOB PRVI Miles Platinum Card 3. ANZ Travel Visa Signature Credit Card 4. Citi PremierMiles Card 5.  DBS Altitude American Express® Card 6.  Maybank Horizon Platinum Visa Card 7.  OCBC Titanium Mastercard.
