  2. Don’t chase the destination, chase the fare! , I simply loved this line and the concept of selecting a destination to everywhere, I think that is a super great tip

  3. I too go through a lot of research while booking because of course you aren’t always traveling luxury! This one’s a really nice trick.

    This is a very useful hack before. Sadly, I don’t think this hack will work not in the near future. Travel will be expensive just like 20years ago.

  5. Although I use skyscanner but I had no prior knowledge of this. I’ll try it once when lockdown is lifted.

  6. cebu pac also notifies me ahead of time if they will be having promos. patience and good strategies are the key to booking cheap flights. haha tested and proven! i usually have chrome, firefox and my mobile open when I do bookings.

  7. This is really a great advantage for those who wants to travel. Will save this for my references. It will help me in the future.
