Since its launch last May 2016, thousands of Filipino travelers have been able to skip initial transactions and upfront payments in favor of just paying on the day of their check-in.
Most e-commerce outfits, including online travel agencies (OTAs), require their customers to make initial transactions through credit card payments or over-the-counter deposits in order to complete reservations. While such process is important and necessary, TravelBook.ph—the leading OTA dedicated to offering hotel accommodations in their best value, wants to make traveling easier right from the very beginning.
It has just been a year since Pay-At-Hotel, No Credit Card Needed was launched but TravelBook.ph has already encouraged more than 1,100 of their hotel partners nationwide to adopt this new type of payment option. Many of the popular and big chain hotels have also joined this program.

“In order to use Pay-At-Hotel, No Credit Card Needed, the customer must apply for a TravelBook.ph free membership first,” Mr. Nakazawa explained. “If the customer violates our terms and conditions by not showing up or not paying the cancellation fee, we will suspend this payment option from the member’s account for the time being.”
With this in mind, the company set terms and conditions to make sure that their members adhere to proper customer behavior so they can continuously enjoy the benefits of this hassle-free option.
Because of the convenience that comes with Pay-At-Hotel, No Credit Card Needed, Filipino travelers have already been using this payment method when booking their hotel accommodations.
In just a span of one year, TravelBook.ph has recorded an unprecedented growth in bookings made using Pay-At-Hotel, No Credit Card Needed. As of April 2017, Pay-At-Hotel bookings has an average YOY growth rate of 691%—an outstanding percentage recorded almost a year after its launch. That’s almost seven times higher in just eleven months (April 2017 vs. May 2016).
“The Pay-At-Hotel method of TravelBook.ph is one that is frequently selected by clients because of its convenience,” says Rio Tolentino, General Manager of Rio Suites in Mandaluyong City. He also added that some clients are not comfortable using their credit cards for online purchasing and that this payment method “made it easier for them to book an accommodation that best suits their budget.”
With an astounding growth like this, TravelBook.ph is determined to further expand this payment method to hotels and resorts in every region of the Philippines so that many Filipinos can see more of this lovely country and travel more. An innovation like Pay-At-Hotel, No Credit Card Needed is only as good as its reach and effectiveness, and by increasing its accessibility, Filipinos, no doubt, will be able to travel in the most convenient way possible.
Fearless and hassle-free payment method for everyone
Pay-At-Hotel, No Credit Card Needed is TravelBook.ph’s answer to online booking inconveniences that are usually faced by Filipino travelers who do not own credit cards.
Even during instances when customers do have credit cards, Filipinos are still hesitant to provide details online because of the threat of fraud and fear of identity theft that are commonly associated with online transactions.
Without a doubt, Pay-At-Hotel, No Credit Card Needed revolutionized the way customers pay for their online hotel bookings. It has proven to be the most beneficial payment option to date as it opens endless opportunities for Filipinos to travel and explore the Philippines.
