6 Ways to Get the Most out of Your Travel Booking With ZUJI29 May, 2016
Planning for a free and easy holiday is busy enough with all the Googling for the best airfare and hotel deals and what to do each day at your destination. After which, you still have to book your hotel at one website and your airfare at another and you have to keep track of all the booking confirmation emails.
Thankfully for online travel agencies (OTAs) like zuji.com.sg, you can book your flights, hotels, car rental and travel insurance all in one place. You can also buy flight + hotel packages (where applicable) to enjoy more savings. But what makes ZUJI stands out from the rest of OTAs is the regular travel promotions or ZUJI Hot Deals that helps you to achieve even more savings in your travel budget!
Let me share with you six ways by which you can get the most out of your travel bookings with ZUJI, saving you not just money but also time!
1. Enjoy Even More Savings with ZUJI Hot Deals
For our recent trip to Perth, we booked our airfare and hotel with ZUJI and because it was a ZUJI FOURbulous month (offer no longer valid now), we enjoyed 5% rebates for our flight bookings and 12% hotel coupon code for our Perth apartment booking – saving us close to $220 in total ($170+ from our apartment booking alone – see the screenshot below)!
Besides monetary savings, we also enjoyed other travel perks like redemption of iShopChangi duty-free shopping vouchers with our flight bookings and even got a free American Tourister luggage just for booking our flights at ZUJI using a Maybank MasterCard credit card.
There are regular ZUJI Hot Deals available so first thing to do when planning your next holiday, check out the Hot Deals tab at zuji.com.sg!
2. Get Instant Help With Your Bookings Via ZUJI Live Chat
Booking a hotel at ZUJI is very easy and intuitive – you get to see lots of pictures of the accommodation you are booking and very clear pricing structure for each room type as well as Tripadvisor reviews of the accommodation.
However, sometimes you might need a little help in your booking e.g. when you suddenly couldn’t find an apartment you are looking for. That happened for me although I later found out it was because I mistyped the dates. All I did is click the blue box “Chat Online now” at the bottom right corner of the screen and within seconds, I was in contact with a ZUJI representative who was able to help me out by sending me the direct link to book the apartment I wanted.
This ZUJI live chat representative is not a robot providing automated replies – you can ask him to find you flights and accommodations for your trips and he will do it almost instantly. Almost like a personal travel concierge. Do note that the ZUJI representative can only help you out in the sales process but not customer support issues like cancellations.
3. Plan Your Travel Itinerary with ZUJI Destination Arrival Guides
Upon booking your flights/accommodation, you will receive a ZUJI destination arrival guides along with your booking confirmation. These are detailed and updated guides about what to do and see, where to find the best eating places and where to shop and essential information such as emergency phone numbers and electricity outlet type. City maps are also included in this guide. Our Perth guide was 15-page long and packed with lots of useful information.
4. Manage Your Booking and Flight Check-In All At ZUJI
You can manage your bookings, be it accommodation or flights, all at ZUJI – simply login with the ZUJI ID and password you signed up with during your booking and you will be able to manage your current bookings or view past bookings. You can even do flight check-ins at ZUJI for selected airlines.
5. Gather Travel Inspirations from ZUJI Passport Blog
Running out of ideas of where to go? Besides PassportChop.com, you can also gather some travel inspirations from ZUJI Passport Blog with suggested itineraries in various countries e.g. New Zealand, Korea as well as café recommendations for specific destinations.
6. Give Your Loved Ones ZUJI Travel Vouchers (Flexible and Useful)
If you are thinking about what to give your loved ones who are avid travellers, I strongly suggest ZUJI travel vouchers. I have seen my fair share of travel vouchers – they are usually very restrictive with travel black-out dates and one-time usage only i.e. if you have a $200 voucher and your purchase is only $150, you will have to forfeit the $50. Sometimes, using travel vouchers can be quite a stressful experience as you try to find the perfect flight/accommodation that allows you to make full use of the value of the voucher.
Thus, I was pleasantly surprised with the flexibility of the ZUJI travel voucher – it works almost like cash! If you are unable to spend the full value of the voucher in your booking, you can still the remaining value for as many bookings as you need to (as long as the voucher has not expired). You can even check the remaining value of your voucher online at ZUJI!
Do note that you can use the voucher to book flights and accommodation at ZUJI only. Vouchers are not redeemable on travel insurance and car hire bookings. For more info on the voucher terms and conditions, see here.
