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.
However when I browsed over the internet few days ago, I found a very lucrative promotion from Tiket.com on International air ticket purchase. When you book international air ticket from their channel, you can get discount up to IDR 700,000. Even better, the discount will be increase up to IDR 1,000,000 if you purchase the ticket with certain payment method!
In this post, I only cover the most lucrative promotion which is the IDR 1,000,000 discount. To take advantage of this promotion, there are some terms and conditions that you have to aware of:
- Booking must be made on/before 22 August 2018
- Your transaction must be minimum IDR 4,000,000 in amount.
- You must use promo code ‘TIKETEKSTRA’
- Payment must be done with BCA credit card, BNI credit card, CIMB Niaga credit card, HSBC credit card, UOB credit card, BCA klikpay, and BNI online debit.
One of the best air fare search tool is Google Flight, you can input up to 5 origins and up to 5 destinations in a single search. Also with Google Flight you can see the airfare in a fare calendar. For example I searched Jakarta (CGK) – Shanghai (PVG) round trip around October 2018.
I chose Malaysia Airlines in economy class, departing from Jakarta on 10 October 2018 and back from Shanghai on 17 October 2018. The price shown in Google Flight was IDR 4,308,700. I validate the price directly in Malaysia Airlines official website, indeed the price shown in Google Flight was correct.
I searched this itinerary using Tiket.com search engine with exactly same condition (date, time, flight number, class, etc). The price shown in Tiket.com was IDR 4,118,700, slightly cheaper than on Malaysia Airlines official website.
I input the promo code ‘TIKETEKSTRA’ on the payment page. With the promo code, the total price goes down to IDR 3,118,700 (reduction of IDR 1,000,000).
I tried many other itineraries and the promotion seems work just fine as long as the minimum transaction amount reached.
