How many times have you missed the travel fair? How many times have you not bought a ticket because you were in doubt, and then regretted it in the end? Ha ha!
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. And you don’t have to worry, because the end of the year is getting closer, there will be many travel fairs popping up. Including Kompas Travel Fair held on 20-22 September at the upcoming Jakarta Convention Center.
Well, if you are one of the people who always wait for the travel fair to get the best price to your dream destination, it’s a good idea to prepare the following things so that the hunt for promo tickets goes smoothly.
1. Gather as much information as possible before coming
At least you know where to go. Don’t just come and keep looking for the cheapest! Also note your schedule, what dates you can go or can’t go.
Check social media, backpacker groups, and also banks that are partners in organizing the travel fair. Like in Kompas Travel Fair 2019 which will be held on 20-22 Septemberyou are advised to online registration used to be in bit.ly/DAFTAR-KTF so that you can get a QR code.
This QR code turns out to be a free entry and you get a chance to be exchanged for a cashback bracelet! The cashback bracelet queue is opened every day at 9 am at Lobby Hall B, JCC Senayan. Online registration is open until September 18thso don’t miss it guys!
You can also find information on the travel fair promo through the official websites of airlines and travel agents that participate in tourist exhibitions.
2. Prepare a partner bank credit and debit card travel fair
To get the best price at the travel fair, find out which bank is the partner travel fair the.
For those of you who have many ATM or credit cards, of course it’s an event travel fair will be very profitable. Because usually, the bank that cooperates with the organizer travel fair or airlines will provide additional discounts if you make a payment with the bank.
At the 2019 Kompas Travel Fair, the only partner bank is CIMB Niaga. So if you have registered your CIMB Niaga credit or debit card that will be used for transactions, there will be many opportunities to get cashback of up to 1.75 million or other benefits such as 0% installments for up to 12 months! Check the program details at bit.ly/INFO-KTF!
Make sure your credit card limit is still sufficient. It’s not funny when you arrive at the cashier and suddenly you can’t make transactions because the limit is not enough. Zon is out haha! Try to prepare everything thoroughly, yes!
3. Book in advance at a travel agent
Usually some travel agents open the opportunity to book in advance.
Of course, you must already know where and when you will go on vacation. With that, you don’t have to worry about traveling at the travel fair to queue too long.
So all you have to do is give proof of booking, come to the travel fair, and pay!
4. Come on the first day
In November, when you go to Japan, the leaves are colorful like this, guys
Try to come on the first day when the travel fair opens. Usually it’s Friday and it’s still very quiet. Try permission to go to the office for a while, or take some time off haha! And most importantly, the promo rations given are definitely still a lot.
Because usually, the popular and cheapest flight routes will be the most coveted. So it could be that the stock of promo seats runs out if we come on the last day.
Especially if your target is like Japan or Korea. Duh, just get ready to look for a backup date plan if the date you want is not available.
5. Come with friends or partner
Coming with friends, spouse, or ex (not recommended) can also be an option to visit tourist exhibitions. Because you can share tasks to find the required tourist information.
For example, you can assign tasks to find brochures, compare prices, compare travel agents, to speed up queues.
6. Determine the destination in advance
Don’t be hungry because you see tickets that are cheap but not what you want. For example, if you want to go to Japan, then see how come the tickets to Korea are cheaper. Do not be tempted! Moreover, sometimes the sales from this travel agent are very clever to tempt us~
You have to be determined to get to where you want to be. Yes, it’s possible if you want to buy both, as long as you don’t forget you still have another bill next month, haha!
7. Choose a travel agent
It’s good, first determine which travel agent you will visit and know the details of the travel agent’s track record. You can google on the internet and ask friends for recommendations.
Although usually the price is almost the same at all travel agents at this travel fair, there are several travel agents that offer some gimmicks or additional bonuses if you buy from them.
For example, once there was a travel agent who gave a discount for the JR pass if you bought a ticket to Japan at the travel agent.
8. Look for ‘insider’ acquaintances
Now, try to interact more than just consulting about purchases with travel agent staff, airlines, or partner banks. You can get acquainted and ask for the phone number of the seller or the email you are making a transaction with.
Save the contact and ask him to contact you if there are other exhibitions, of course, here are the leaked promotional prices sold at the upcoming tourist exhibition!
So, that’s really easy! See you at the Kompas Travel Fair 2019!
