CLEO (Malaysia) - - YOUR LIFE, YOUR RULES! -

Keep an eye out for travel deals and pro­mo­tions to land some re­ally cheap flights. Bud­get air­lines like AirA­sia – who al­ready of­fer cheap fares – al­ways have pro­mo­tions that of­fer even cheaper flights. Just re­mem­ber the first point – plan early! An­other way to save on air­fare is to claim the lat­est pro­mo­tion of­fered by Stan­dard Char­tered WorldMiles Card, where you can get the sec­ond ticket for 50 per cent – with Fire­Fly, Malindo Air and Qatar Air­ways (lim­ited time only). You can also col­lect WorldMiles to ex­change for flight tick­ets. Ev­ery RM2 that you spend over­seas will get you three WorldMiles, while ev­ery RM3 spent lo­cally will earn one WorldMile. Th­ese WorldMiles can be con­verted into air miles of your fre­quent flyer pro­gramme of choice at the rate of two WorldMiles for ev­ery air mile. You can use th­ese bonus points to pay for your tick­ets with­out ac­tu­ally hav­ing to fork out a sin­gle cent. home­s­tays, you have so much po­ten­tial to save more money.

An av­er­age four-star ho­tel lo­cated in Sukhumvit can cost about RM453 per night. If you’re trav­el­ling in a group, this amount might dou­ble or triple. In com­par­i­son, for RM464 a night, you can book a two-bed­room apart­ment in Sukhumvit which ac­com­mo­dates up to six peo­ple. Split that six ways and it’s RM77 a per­son!
