My 2019 #TravelGoals + Scoot Offers More Payment Options (Aside From Credit Card!)

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Good news to those who don't have or don't use credit cards, but have lots of awesome 2019 travel plans already!

I know the feeling of wanting to book flights online, but not owning a credit card by choice so I am putting off my dream destinations. I'm sure that what's stopping most of my young readers from booking the ticket to your next adventure, if not time or budget, is simply because of the limited modes of payment. Finally! Scoot, the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines Group, partners with payments platform Ayden to introduce more options to the Philippine market to cater different customer needs. This is super convenient!

With Dragonpay, you can now pay for your Scoot airfare via: 

1) Online Banking
2) Physical ATMs
3) Over-the-counter cash at banks 
4) Cash at retail establishments (supermarkets, groceries, department stores, courier centers, and remittance centers)
5) GCash

This is alongside existing credit card and PayPal options.

Not only with flight bookings, you can also purchase add-ons such as baggage, meals, seat upgrades and in-flight Wi-Fi using Dragonpay.

 This payment option is currently only available for bookings made on the FlyScoot website, the expanded options will be rolled out in the refreshed Scoot mobile app by second half of 2019.

"As a low-cost carrier with a global presence, it is crucial that we pay attention to the needs of the local market," said Vinod Kannan, Scoot Chief Commercial Officer. "In the Philippines, many of our customers have shared their wish to have more ways to make payment with Scoot. With Dragonpay’s range of services, our affordable fares are now more accessible, and travelling becomes more convenient."

Aside from Singapore, Scoot flies from Manila to a lot of my 2019 #TravelGoals!
