Our nifty guide to the ultimate vacation
Departures
Better early than sorry

Be at the airport at least two hours before your flight. You might be thinking that’s too long of a waiting time for a domestic flight. But trust us, two hours will give you ample time to line up at the check-in or bag-drop counter, grab a snack and peacefully walk to your boarding gate. To be sure, you can also ask us to check you in via web – just say please!

Identification

Bring any valid photo ID with you bearing your complete name. Valid IDs only, please, and not those sketchy ones you had made at the mall! Make sure that the name in your ticket/voucher matches the one in your ID.

Boarding passes

You need not print your boarding passes or air tickets. We live in the 21st century and printed tickets aren’t as necessary as they used to be. As a company that promotes paper-less traveling, we encourage you to simply save a copy of your boarding passes or flight vouchers on your smart phones or tablets. Free up some space by deleting a selfie, or two.

Road trips

If you are taking a bus, be sure to pre-book your tickets to secure your seats. Be at the terminal 30 minutes before departure. You don’t want to be one of those creepy travelers hitching a ride on the highway in the middle of the night.

Arrivals
Airport arrivals

If you pre-booked your transfers with us, then we’ve made arrangements for a representative to pick you up at the airport. Walk towards the arrival area after you get your luggage and look for the sign board with your name or the name of the hotel you’ll be staying at. If they’re nowhere to be found, feel free to give us a call!

Hotel vouchers

Our hotel partners do not require a printed copy of your voucher. Just have a digital copy saved on any of your devices as well as your valid IDs ready upon checking in. Pro tip: ask for a welcome drink upon arriving at the hotel!

Tours
Tour Vouchers

Your voucher has all the information for your tours – the destinations, inclusions and even exclusions as we know you don’t like those annoying surprises. Be sure to carefully review these before flying to prep you for your trip. If you’re purchasing a food-inclusive package, do inform us in advance of food allergies or special diets.

Chill a little

When you realize you are still lounging around in your hotel room during pick-up time, don’t panic! Our tour operator won’t leave you behind. You will be given a heads up when it’s time for you to leave for the tour.

Be cash-ready

It will come in handy for additional rentals, emergencies, and impulse buys. Keep your money safe and dry in a re-sealable bag or a waterproof pouch. You may also leave some in your room if there’s a safety deposit box.

Spread the awesomeness

Share your exciting adventure with your friends and family. Don’t forget to tag us in your photos along the way!

Checking Out
Final room check

Inspect every corner, drawer and desk in your hotel room before checking out. See to it that you’ve secured all your things, unless you really wish to get rid of them.

Punctuality is key

Be punctual and stick to the departure schedule we recommend for your airport transfers. All our recommended schedules come directly from our local operators and when it comes to anticipating traffic and travel time, they would know best. Again, check-in via web if it’s necessary.

Terminal Fee

Terminal fee is only included for flights coming from Manila. This means you have to prepare cash at the airport for other routes (a.k.a. your return flight) for your terminal fee.

Travel Essentials
Pen & paper

We love jotting down interesting people, places and things we encounter during our trips. These may also come in handy in taking note of important things and tips you come across in your adventure!

Gadgets & chargers

Phones, cameras, tablets and even food processors if you must. As long as they fit in your bag, bring them all. Make sure you have the right plugs and adapters!

Foldable umbrella

Large umbrellas must be checked in. Plus, foldables are way cuter.

ATM cards

Even if you’re cash-ready, it would be smart to always have an ATM card with you for emergencies or impulse buys.

Sunblock

Make sure to apply it every two hours unless you intend to be charcoal black or lobster red on your first day back at work.

First-aid kit

Have band-aids ready for wounds and a few pain killers for headaches and other motion-related sicknesses. Chocolate for heartache is optional.

Insect repellant

Believe us when we say this is crucial. It took a few trips of having polka-dotted legs for us to realize this.

Sunglasses

For extra cool points.
