Philippines Travel Mart Experience

PHILTOA has been promoting the Philippines tourism, culture and heritage for the last 26 years through Philippines Travel Mart. It is an expo participated by different companies, local government unit, travel agencies and Department of Tourism. 

Senior Citizens first

Last September 4-6, 2015 was the 26th Philippines Travel Mart with its theme Philippines “The Fun Capital of Asia”. We went in SMX last September 5 to look for exciting deals and promos. 

Entrance Fee is P50 each. 

There were so many affordable travel packages, seat sales and exciting deals from different companies and travel agencies but since our budget is limited, we just focused in our priority, buy luggage and book a trip or staycation for my son’s 7th birthday. 

What I like in Phillipines Travel Mart?

1. It is like a one stop shop where you can see different airline companies, travel agencies, hotels, resort and other booths that offer big discount for your travel needs. 

2. The airline seat sales are really affordable, there are P99++ per way to Batanes of SkyJet, P300 all in fare of Air Asia, P500 roundtrip domestic destinations of Cebu Pacific and cruising deals from 2GO. 

3. There are travel packages that includes roundtrip airfare, accommodations and tour at a very low price both domestic and international trip. 

4. Bags and luggages are on sale up to 50% and 70% discount. 

5. You will discover new resorts, hotels and places in the Philippines. 

6. There are so many fliers, brochures and freebies that you can take home. 

7. You can see different booths that showcase their tourist spots. SO parang nakalibot ka na rin sa Pinas. hehehe!

Visit Philippines Travel Mart if you really love to travel or if you are planning for a vacation or staycation so you can score exciting deals. We’re happy that we were able to reserve a hotel for my son’s 7th birthday. After booking, they gave us free 2 boxes of yummy chocolate and 2 free umbrella.


  1. It definitely looks like a fun event! And with the all discounts, I bet people who love to travel are overjoyed.

  2. To travel especially to other places is exploring and educational, not to mention the cultural influence a place, country or nation visited. I am a Filipino but I don't think that our place is fun. I couldn't say furthermore.

  3. The fair seems great for travel enthusiasts.
    Great offers for the airline companies which encourage national tourism.
    I want to visit Batanes.

  4. Wow, this is awesome! Our family loves traveling so we will definitely check this out. Thanks for spreading the news!

  5. I once joined a travel expo, also in SMX, that was 3 yrs back I guess and I'm happy I did, I was able to purchase PAL tickets for my siblings to Manila at a very affordable price.

  6. Good to know that there is an event like this. Hoping to attend next year.

  7. nice :) when's the next event? I want to attend :)

  8. Never been to travel expo but your experience makes me want to go and get some deals. I'm glad that you book hotel for you son, got really good deal and free chocolates and umbrella. Thanks for great review experience.

  9. Good to know there's such event like this. It will help you decide where to travel in the Philippines. Hopefully, we can visit and travel to our countries top tourist spots too.

  10. the airfare was a great deal! we booked via Airasia last May for our Dec trip but the rate was 1k each, roundtrip. there were also great packages during travel fairs like this but sometimes the hotel rates are still cheaper if you ask them directly thru their website :)

  11. hi I also visited the expo yes they really had a lot of good deals especially in hotels will definitely go back next year :-)
