How to Get a Huge Discount on Airline Tickets?

(Updated 26.May.20)

Air travel has become the most convenient way of transport. But it is also the most expensive. However, would you believe that you can get as high as 90% discount on air tickets? Yes, you heard it right. You will pay only 10% of the fare plus the taxes. This is not the seasonal promotion of airlines. This ticket can be used anytime, subject to availability.

I have been in the airline industry for over a decade now. I worked for two airlines and two travel agencies. In the airline industry, there is a so-called ID (industry discount) Ticket. Here are the ways to obtain this discount.

Be an Airline Employee

Being an airline employee, you are given an unlimited 90% off on a subject to load tickets. This is the reason why you will see airline employees traveling every now & then. This is excluding some annual free tickets.

Be a Family of an Airline Employee

You are lucky enough if one of your immediate family members got a job as an airline. It means you will get an unlimited ticket for a 50-90% discount.

 Silly as it may sounds, you can get this benefit by marrying an airline employee. Your family will benefit, too. And by the way, I’m still single (kidding).

Befriend an Airline Employee

In many airlines, its employees can provide a limited number of discounted tickets to anyone not defined as a family member. Some airlines can give a 50% – 90% discount.

Be a Travel Agent

If airline employees have ID tickets, the travel agency employees have AD (agent discount) Tickets. This a discounted ticket given by the airlines to its valued travel agents. You need to be an employee of a travel agency to obtain this discount. When I was in Prudentialife Travel, I remember my manager issued an AD ticket with Philippine Airlines for my colleague.

So hurry up. Be one of the above, and let us all discover the world.

Traveling has played a significant part in my life. Since I started to work for an airline, my life had opened up to an exciting world of travel. One of the challenges of being a traveler is funding.

But what if I’m going to tell you that you can get for as low as 50% discount from your next hotel booking with Marriott and its vast number of affiliated 5-star hotel chains worldwide.

It is not available to everyone, though. This offer is for a travel agency and airline employees only. All you need is an IATA number to join. The primary purpose of this benefit is to reward the people who sell the products of Marriott.

The program is called Marriott’s Hotel Excellence! Members are required to finish an online course, and a certificate will be awarded. As a token of appreciation, five discount vouchers are issued. These you can use to book a room.

An annual re-certification is required to retain the membership and the benefits. All other details will be sent to you by Marriott.

To join, click this link, then click on register and fill out the form.

I hope this helps you plan a wonderful trip and have significant savings on your hotel bookings.

How to Earn in the Stock Market?

There are two ways to earn stock market:

1. Dividends

A dividend is a portion of the company’s profits given to stockholders. If the company has big profits, then dividends are high. Below are examples of dividends. This is an e-mail sent to me from my broker COL Financial.


2. Capital gains

When a company grows, the price of each share also increases.

The picture above is an actual screenshot of my COL Financial account. The total capital gain I earned from Megaworld has reached P3247.13. I bought my shares at a low price of P4.21 per share, and now the price is higher than P4.72 per share, so my profit is up to P3247.13.

It’s just as easy to earn in the stock market. In my three months in the stock market, I have received dividends, and my capital gains are high.
