How to travel without a credit card

by | Feature

Feb. 02, 20 | 3:00 pm

In a world where everything is cashless and paperless, it’s getting harder and harder for one to travel without a credit card. It’s not surprising then that a lot of people, even Filipinos, now have one (or sometimes more) which can come in handy with payments.

However, there is still a number of those that go without a credit card, and if you’re one of those, that does not mean you can no longer travel without a hitch! Check out how you can still pursue your dream adventure even there’s nothing for you to swipe:

See other payment offerings of airlines

There are many airlines offering the option to do over-the-counter payment—with a holding period of 12 up to 48 hours. In the UAE, for instance, carriers like Cebu Pacific have already partnered with exchange centers so travelers can pay with ease. Upon payment, booking gets confirmed after at a day, and they can just head to the nearest remittance center to settle their payments.

Check out hotel booking sites

Thanks to the growth of the digital world, we can now book our accommodation without hassle. Instead of the long process of booking directly with hotel (where more often than not, requires credit card for payment), we can now secure our temporary home with sites that offers the options “no pre-payment” or “pay at the hotel.” It’s perfect especially for travelers wary about their money. Otherwise, there’s still the good ol’ option of walk-in reservation.

Shop at souks and local markets

The best place to shop when traveling is still the local markets—which fortunately still prefer cash. The great thing about these souks and local markets is that you can haggle for the prices of your desired items. It’s not something you can do with malls and credit cards!

Eat at hawker centers and street stalls

Hawker centers, street food, and local eateries—they are your best bet if you want to go on a food trip without a credit card. They are not as expensive as those in the restaurants, but they are great options if you want to experience authentic local cuisine.
