(This is not a sponsored post. I'm not sure why we bloggers always disclose when posts aren't sponsored...seeing as the law only says that you have to disclose when posts ARE sponsored. However, I am using my referral link for Klook in this post. It's the usual deal: you get a few dollars off your first purchase when you sign up through my link, and I get a few dollars off my next purchase.)
I first discovered Klook last summer when my sister and I were going off on a short trip to explore Singapore for a few days. Like every other trip I've ever taken, one of my big priorities was saving money. We wanted to go to Universal Studios, so as I was looking up options for the best ticket deals for Universal Studios, I stumbled across Klook. Their ticket price was about $10 USD less than the standard price. On a ticket that's normally around $50 USD, that's a pretty steep discount! They had the best ticket deal, by far. They also had the best ticket price for a number of other places throughout Singapore, including the famously awesome Singapore Zoo.
I had never ever heard of Klook, though, and didn't know how legit or legal it was, so I started doing some background research. From what I could find, which wasn't a whole lot back then, they seemed rather new, but those who had used the site had found it reliable. I didn't know anyone in real life who had used it. We decided to take a risk and buy our tickets from there, although I will admit, I was very nervous walking up to Universal Studios on that day with our Klook tickets--hoping they wouldn't be rejected!
Best Travel Buddy ever. Unless Angel's in the competition. Can I have both? I can't decide.
Our vouchers again worked very smoothly at the Singapore Zoo, and by then I was convinced--Klook was awesome! The next month, we used them to buy tickets for an experience in Kuala Lumpur.
Sentosa is rather awesome.
The company started out in Hong Kong, and last summer, when I stumbled across them, most of the deals they offered were very much limited to Southeast Asia. But, in the last year, they have expanded their offerings quickly! Now, I notice that they are offering a lot more deals throughout countries beyond SE Asia, including China, Japan, Korea, and Australia! There's even just a few deals sprouting up in Europe and North America...which makes me think that in the future, there will probably be more.
Keep an eye on Klook, and sign up through my referral link if you like to pay less for tickets than the price at the gate!
What's the best strategy you use for saving money when traveling? Does $10 off of $50 sound like a pretty worthwhile discount to you?
