Hotel Quickly is Now in the Philippines!

By Monday, March 09, 2015 , ,

Being the busy folks that we are, The Memet and I usually have a hard time planning some of our trips way in advance.


Back when I was working and The Memet had a different boss, we always had ample time to plan our trips and book our accommodations. We're looking at 3-6 months of advance planning here. But since I started working from home, The Memet's schedule has become more hectic and we don't usually have the luxury of time to prepare for our trips anymore.

Remember my birthday post from last year? I only found out that he had time for a quick out of town trip late that afternoon. Haha!

Well, something perfect just came up for folks who are perpetually in need of last minute hotel bookings - and I attended their press launch last week.


On March 6, 2015, Hotel Quickly, the pioneering last minute hotel booking app, officially launched its operations in the Philippines during a press release that was held in A Space Manila


The company's CSO / Co-Founder, Raphael Cohen, gave us an overview of what the app was all about. 

In a nutshell, the Hotel Quickly app allows you to make last-minute hotel bookings through your mobile devices. All you need to do is download the app. Payment is convenient, because you can use your credit card. 

You know one of the downsides of booking a hotel room at the very last minute? Well, in my experience, I've had to pay more than the actual amount that was in my budget.

One of the great things about Hotel Quickly is that it actually gives you a decent discount. If I were to book a hotel room in Richmonde Hotel Ortigas for tonight (March 9), I can actually get a room for P3029 via Hotel Quickly versus P3422++ via the hotel's website. Yup, I checked just now. Hehe!

The thing, however, is that you can't choose what room you'll get. You do have the option to pay for an upgrade though if you find yourself in a room that's too small for your liking. 

Another thing you need to keep in mind is that bookings are non-refundable, because Hotel Quickly pays the hotel immediately after you book a hotel room.

All in all, I think Hotel Quickly is a great app for people like me who often go on last minute trips. 

If you'd like to give it a try too, please feel free to download the app and use this promo code to get P700 credit: DGUTI2.
