As backpackers we are always in the search for the best priced accommodation without compromising value for our hard earned money. Each one of us may have downloaded every travel app there is on the planet comparing prices to save on every cent that we can. Then comes this killer travel app, Traveloka!
Things I love about this App
What I like about the Traveloka App itself is that the controls that matter most – Filter, Sort and Map- are easily accessible all the time at the bottom of app while searching. It allows me to customize the results of my hotel search result allowing me to set my budget range, type of accommodation, services available (because wifi is now a basic right ^_^ ) and a lot more!
It also features reviews from Tripadvisor, a reputable travel review site and not just an app subscriber review. What this means for you is that you get an accurate review as they come from a broader range of people and not limited to those who have booked from the app.
The best thing about this app is when I compared prices from other booking apps for hotels it just goes to show that Traveloka has the most competitive prices for Hotel searches! It also offers special discounts for people who sign up

Step 1: Download the Traveloka App on your mobile phone.
Step 2: Open the app and tap on the Hotel Button
Step 3: Fill in the details of your trip
Step 4: At this point you can sort and filter the search results to what customization you like.

It is that easy! Traveloka is slowly replacing some of my travel apps on my phone and looks like by the rate that they are going, adding more and more properties on the list it is not impossible that I may not need other booking apps in the future. I highly suggest that you sign up so you can enjoy members exclusive deals that they email every week straight to you inbox!
