Travel Tips that Singapore Travellers Should Know — Budget & Premium Airlines, Travel Search Engines, Air Mile Credit Cards and Deals!

Where do you buy tickets for your business trips? Where do you book hotels for your upcoming vacations? What are the websites that provide the best deals for Singaporeans? Today, BQ is going to introduce to you the top tips that you must know for you to plan your holidays ahead!


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!

  • 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,,, eDreams, bravofly and A gentle reminder to take note of the currency change of different agents! And you can always find out coupon codes from 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, and Groupon are the most famous sites with their loyal fans that search on their engines on a daily basis.

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.
