Need a change of scenery or want to take advantage of the long weekend? Then a getaway with family or friends is just what you need! But before you get too excited about taking a vacation, remember to assess and determine if it’s advisable to travel. Whether it’s an out of town trip that’s weeks in the making or just a quick, laid back staycation—safety should always be the number one priority.
Once you’ve ticked all the safety boxes, then it’s time to plan the perfect getaway. Here are some ideas on how to get the most out of your vacation when you use ShopeePay, Shopee’s all-in-one e-wallet:
1. Choose an accommodation that can give value for money
Are you missing the country’s wonderful beaches and dying to bask in the sun? Then head over to the white sands of Boracay or fly to the clear waters of Palawan. Complement your trip with a stay at a top-notch hotel to enjoy the full experience. Get 20% cashback when you make your hotel bookings, including Estacio Uno Boracay, Mithi Resort and Spa Bohol, and White Breeze Palawan on Shopee and pay with ShopeePay.
If you’re looking to stay somewhere close to home but don’t want to miss out on the rewarding feeling of an out of town trip, then a staycation is just what you need. With amenities like pools, spas, game rooms, restaurants and more, hotel staycations are a great way to unwind after a week of hard work. To check out more hotels in your preferred destination or around the metro, simply select ‘Hotel’ when you visit “Load, Bills, & Travel” on the Shopee app and get 20% cashback when you book with ShopeePay.
2. Save up as you plan wisely for your trip
Once you’ve settled on a destination, time to prepare your essentials. Stock up on your baon or shop for your beach (or poolside) OOTDs on Shopee, and get daily free shipping vouchers when you check out with ShopeePay. Don’t forget to pack personal items like travel documents, masks, sanitary kit, and, of course, your camera or phone to capture the moments. Some local government units or establishments may ask you to show proof of vaccination so bring your vaccine card with you.
Ahead of your trip, reload your SIM so you can stay updated and keep in touch with your friends and family. Get a 10% discount when you buy load across all networks with ShopeePay. Sending money to any Shopee user or bank account is free via ShopeePay so you and your travel buddies can conveniently use it when collecting payments for shared expenses. You can also maximize ShopeePay’s free transfers feature when making payments to merchants that only accept bank transfers as mode of payment.
3. Make the most out of your road trip by going cashless
On your way to your destination, you’ll need to make a few stopovers to eat, buy emergency items like medicine, or pick up some stuff you might have forgotten. Use ShopeePay to score deals when paying in stores. Simply use Scan to Pay with ShopeePay to receive 20% cashback for your food or merchandise purchases at partner merchants such as Potato Corner, Puregold, The Generics Pharmacy, National Bookstore, Gong Cha, Papa John’s, Army Navy, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
Did you know that you can also save on gas and toll fees? Simply purchase ₱1 Deals via “ShopeePay Near Me” on the Shopee app to get additional discounts and cashback. Redeem your vouchers when you pay for gas, motor products, and other services with ShopeePay at partner gasoline stations like Seaoil, Phoenix, and Metroil. You can also get 15% cashback when you load your Autosweep or Easytrip RFID with ShopeePay.
Make sure that everyone joining the trip is in good health and fully vaccinated. Familiarize yourself with the health & safety guidelines and take all the protective measures you can before, during, and after your vacation so the fun doesn’t stop!
