The Filipino Guide to Traveling with Bitcoin




traveling

Summer is long over, but do you really have to wait until the next holiday to book a flight or a reservation? The best resorts and hotels open slots ahead of time, and they’d be overloaded with callers and clients by the time December or summer arrives once more, just to be disappointed that they were all taken. Here’s a guide to prevent that from happening to you, and with bitcoin right by your side, you’ll be able to do it even faster and safer.

BTCTrip

If you’re looking for simplicity, look no further than BTCTrip. Whether you’re from Manila or Cebu, it’s as simple as placing in your departure airport, your destination, leave date and return date. Then you can just tap ‘Search’ and it will grab you a list of flights that you can jump into and all the details you’ll need to know. So what’s the kicker? Well, you can buy a ticket to that flight with bitcoin, and just as simple as that, you’re all signed up and ready to fly!

Headed for Batanes? Book a flight to Basco! Bohol? Boracay? Or perhaps you’re going for an international flight? Headed for Tokyo or New York? Paris or London? BTCTrip makes the search easier, and paying fees with bitcoin minimizes transaction fees and additional costs your local flight agency or your airline might want to grab from you.

CASHCASHPINOY AND METRODEAL

CashCashPinoy and MetroDeal are deal and discount sites, but it can be a lifesaver if you’re looking for a cheap steal. With stays at hotels or resorts, some including flight fees going as much as 25 and occasionally the lucky 95% off, it definitely is a site you should pay attention to. Maybe the flight you just booked was 50% off at CashCashPinoy, and it doesn’t hurt to check.

You could snag a trip to Cebu for half a grand, or a flight included deal to Boracay for two thousand from time to time, and once again, you can pay with bitcoin. These deals usually run a week, so you wouldn’t want to miss out.

So if you find yourself bored out of your mind during a holiday, now you can just grab your digital wallet and get anywhere with it, quite literally. So where have you decided to go this year?
