A few days ago I wrote about Garudamiles Independence Day promotion, where you can enjoy 73% discount on Garuda Indonesia ticket redemption (the promotion was ended by now). I took advantage of that promotion to get tickets for my parent birthday gift. I secured 2 round trip Garuda Indonesia economy class award tickets on Jakarta …
It’s not something uncommon for Indonesian online travel agency (OTA) such as Traveloka, Pegipegi, and Panorama to offer some discount when you buy airlines ticket (or any other travel services) through their channel. The discount somewhat perpetually offered all year by various OTA, that’s why until now I never covered any promotion from any OTA in my blog.
I visit my parents in Bandung regularly, almost once a month. Due to heavy traffic in the highway over the weekend, train is the most reliable transportation between Jakarta and Bandung. This time I tried Argo Parahyangan with brand new coach when I get back from Bandung to Jakarta.
Garudamiles is the frequent flyer program of Garuda Indonesia. To celebrate Indonesia Independence Day, Garudamiles offer 73% discount for miles redemption.
Another accommodation that I aimed to book is Tsurunoyu Onsen. Japanese categorized this accommodation as ‘minshuku’, family operated Japanese-style bed and breakfast. I would say that Tsurunoyu Onsen isn’t a luxurious property, but there are something rustic and traditional which you can’t find if you stay in luxury hotels.
