  • New Calendar Search to find the cheapest days to fly
  • Hottest available fares from Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific Air, Air Philippines, Air Asia, Tiger Airways and Jetstar Asia along with hundreds of other carriers
  • New Popular Search to see the most favoured destinations and accommodation

Manila, February 7th, 2012 – Regional favourite Wego has launched the Philippines’ very own dedicated site, www.wego.com.ph, giving everyone the opportunity to travel more thanks to ground-breaking metasearch technology, providing users with a platform to compare all the country’s favourite low cost carriers’ airfares and over  350,000 hotels, including even the most remote boutique properties.

This free technology means that everyone can identify the cheapest flights and the best
accommodation from across the market with just a few clicks online; saving hundreds of Pesos, as well as time otherwise spent searching multiple travel sites. Users simply click through to their chosen suppliers’ sites – amongst them the online travel agents – to book.

Wego.com.ph includes the DateWise™ Fare Finder tool that allows users to select a destination, indicate flexibility in dates of travel, and see a graphic calendar displaying
the lowest fares over a month for all carriers.

Users of wego.com.ph looking for hotels will also appreciate the revolutionary Popular
Search feature, which ranks properties according to what is considered convenient, well-priced and well-placed by other users. First time travellers find the ‘Popular With Filipinos’ rankings hugely reassuring, while experienced users see the site as intuitive and content relevant.

Based on a complex algorithm that tracks the data trails of Filipino travellers, the Popular
Search results are accurate and real-time. To illustrate, Singapore is currently the most frequently searched route out of Manila. The five most popular hotels there are:

  1. Holiday Inn Atrium
  2. Marina Bay Sands
  3. Empire Hostel, Singapore
  4. Ibis Singapore On Bencoolen
  5. Concorde Hotel Singapore

As Craig Hewett, Chief Commercial Officer at Wego explained:

“Travellers in the Philippines need to be able to compare airfares and hotel rates quickly and easily online. We are therefore delighted to launch a local travel site that we know will help our Filipino users save time, pay less and travel more.”
