Most travel agencies nowadays allow you to book low-cost accommodation. These hotels look very nice in pictures, but upon arrival you realize that you get just what you paid for. Imagine getting a room in a noisy hotel, with a squeaky bed and an all over unsafe feeling that’s going to make you wish you paid a few more dollars to make this nightmare stop.
On the other hand, you might find a very affordable resort that fits your budget, just to find it’s too secluded and you are going to spend your vacation by yourself. We only work with a variety of handpicked hotels and resorts, that provide the best experience without being expensive.
Does a dream destination must be expensive?The Philippines is a very diverse place, not only in scenery and activities, but also when it comes to costs. Checking out some less known spots is an advisable thing to do if saving money is one of your objectives.
We are sure you’ve heard of Boracay and El-Nido if you’re planning to visit the Philippines, but have you ever heard of Siargao or Mindoro and considered them as a viable option for your perfect vacation? We can guarantee you’ll have just as much fun over there.
Despite the fact some destinations are less popular, it doesn’t mean they are any less beautiful or exotic. It only means they haven’t been discovered yet by the masses. Consequently, these islands are much more affordable, less spoiled and more genuine. We work hard to always extend our operation to those yet unknown spots, so we can present you with a wide selection of locations that are going to be the next hot spots.
Can a premade package provide value for money? Sure it can!

From our experience, tourists who come to the Philippines, find it very difficult to find the best way to spend their time.

Another thing is, we only work with establishments who give a fair price to their services. Therefore, the deals you close with us are the best you can find. You won’t be able to find a better price for the quality and standards we maintain.
What to do once you’re already there? What about a short day-trip?
A cool tour is a very good way to spend your time while on vacation. We can arrange for you to enjoy all a place has to offer, be it Manila, Cebu, or any island getaway. A lot of tourists find themselves lost sometimes on their vacation. Not knowing what to do in Manila for instance is quite common, even for the frequent visitors to the Philippines.

Living costs for the budget traveler
So how much will it cost you wonder. There are a lot of ways to minimize spending in the Philippines. While eating in the resort’s restaurant is expensive, we suggest to be adventurous and try the local places when possible. The Philippines are known for their unique cuisine, which is diverse as the number of their islands and comes at affordable prices even the locals can handle.
Transportation doesn’t have to always be expensive. Some moments do call for a taxi, but why not give jeepney rides a try, or take the light train in Manila. Doing so might even lead you to cool, off the map places where many of the locals shop for grade A knock offs of your favorite brands, and you can come back home with a million dollar look.
We’d say that you could minimize your daily spending to roughly 20 USD, and you’ll still be able to have a good time. For extreme cases, you can easily go lower than that. Check our guides on how to travel in the Philippines for more detailed advice.
