So it has come to an end for our hectic travels in Hong Kong, Hanoi, Seoul and Osaka in the past 6 months. We decided to rest for a while till the next trip planning but the “travellers mood” in us were so intense that we started to Google around, reading blog reviews on some the places. While searching, we came across an interesting website named –Traveloka.
Clicking through tabs and functions in Traveloka, we found this is a pretty useful, easy to use platform that gathers and compares price information of different airlines tickets and hotels in various countries. Great especially for those who are in a rush looking for cheap flight tickets but lack of time to check through fares in different airlines.
Why book with Traveloka? Extensive and informative search results to get the best price for you. Save more for your travel!
Currently, the website official airline partners includes AirAsia, Firefly, Malindo Air, Jetstar, Tiger Air, Malaysia Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, Singapore Airline, Silk Air, Lufthansa, Cathay Pacific, Etihad Airways, Thai Airways, Philippines Airlines, Vietname Airlines, KLM, Japan Airlines, EVA Air, Hongkong Airlines, Emirates, Korean Air, Thai Lion and many more. You can travel with these airlines to different destinations around the world.
To check on ticket prices, you just have to key in the flight destination, date of travels, and number of passengers.
All tickets prices from partnered airlines on stated date appear all-in-one-go and violaa, you can start comparing the price and look for the one which suit you the most. We try on the ticket price for Penang, as we have not been visiting this place for more than 3 years already. Hokkien Mee, Char Koay Teow, Popiah, Penang Rojak and all the delicious street food, we are missing you!
Found round trip less than RM150 per pax from AirAsia! Hello Penang we are coming!

You can sort according to price range, popularity, star rating and facilities. For budget travellers like us, we usually start from price range below RM300, and then read on reviews (Yes, Traveloka has this too, powered by Tripadvisor) .
What we love about this platform is that there is no extra fees impose over price shown, as it is inclusive of tax. Save the hassle of getting calculator and add another 10% or 6% of charges here and there, guessing on final rough price. With Traveloka, this step can be eliminated as the platform has already get all calculated for you.
Later on we realize that we can actually get even lower price for every hotel booking once we registered as their Traveloka member (Register as member is free of course). Georgetown City Hotel room price is now at RM143.05 instead of RM157.19, it save us RM14.40! Good deal.
Traveloka partners with quite a number of domestic and international hotel brands – Best Western, Novotel, Ibis, Tune Hotels, Pullman, Hotel Seri Malaysia, Mariott Hotels, Cititel Hotel, Sun Inns International, Royal Chulan Hotel, Berjaya Hotel, just to name a few.
