Introducing BlackBook Travels, the only travel platform that rewards you with points you can convert into cashback with every stay.

With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, travel is on the upswing once again, and myriad places are beckoning and enticing the travel-starved.

Putting together a trip, though, can be time-consuming, requiring planning and research. Helping to facilitate this process is BlackBook Travels, a homegrown travel booking platform with a flexible rewards programme and a built-in itinerary planner.

BlackBook was set up to reduce the hassle of having to deal with multiple open tabs when planning a trip. The app does this by packing the research and booking capabilities into a single platform for a seamless, one-stop suite experience. The app features a global inventory of more than 2.5 million hotels, so that you get to choose from a widest range of hotels available today. Thanks to their advanced price benchmarking system, these rooms can be snagged at the most competitive rates.

When you book through BlackBook, you are awarded points, which can be used to offset future bookings. The amazing part is that unused reward points can be converted into cashback in your credit card, putting them back in your pocket!

The app also makes planning a trip a lot more convenient with its digital itinerary planner. Dubbed MyBlackBook, it connects travellers to a database of more than 32 million places of interest. With landmarks, dining options, and best-kept local secrets all in one place, planning your itinerary is a cinch. You no longer need to toggle between tabs — simply create an itinerary, explore places of interest available, and add them to your schedule.

Planning a quick getaway but don’t know where to go? Check out some suggestions from BlackBook Travels:

Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok is popular for its heritage and vibrant street life. While there, check out the ornate shrines at the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Temple of the Golden Buddha, and Wat Pho. Then hop over to the Grand Palace, where you could catch a glimpse of Thai royalty! Foodies and shopaholics cannot afford to miss Siam Paragon, Chatuchak Weekend Market, and Chinatown for a spot of shopping and feasting.

Bali, Indonesia

Adventure lovers may wish to visit Nusa Dua or Kuta, where they can surf or indulge in other forms of water sports, such as white-water rafting, scuba diving, and paddleboarding. At sundown, they can visit the night safari, where Bali’s nocturnal animals come alive; alternatively, they can choose to relax and get rejuvenated with a traditional Balinese massage.

Wishing for adventures a little further out? BlackBook suggests the following destinations:

Melbourne, Australia

Appreciate the creativity of this city’s residents by wandering down Melbourne’s graffiti-adorned laneways, tour the Aboriginal Heritage Walk at the Royal Botanic Gardens, and explore the cultural hub of Fitzroy, known for its live music venues, eclectic dining spots, and alternative fashion shops. In the evening, go on a pub crawl on Brunswick Street, where you can enjoy different genres of music.

Auckland, New Zealand

Organise shopping sprees along Queen Street, where you will find all the major retailers and options for any budget. Explore the variety of walking trails, resting points, and beautiful photo-ops at Auckland Domain.
