It is now easier and more convenient for travelers to book their flights and pursue their dream vacation with more payment options offered by Scoot, the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines Group. With its recent partnership with Dragonpay, Scoot has announced the addition of more convenient channels for customers in the Philippines to pay for flight bookings and add-ons like baggage, meals, seat upgrades and in-flight Wi-Fi.
Apart from existing payment modes via credit card and PayPal, travelers can now pay through online banking with most major local commercial banks, physical ATM payments, over-the-counter cash at banks and retail establishments (supermarkets, groceries, department stores, courier centers, and remittance centers), and GCash credits.
As a global low-cost carrier, Scoot is passionate about making travel attainable for all and enabling customers to fulfill their “Wandermust.” According to Vinod Kannan, Scoot Chief Commercial Officer, “As a low-cost carrier with a global presence, it is crucial that we pay attention to the needs of the local market.”
In the Philippines, customers have voiced out their desire to enjoy more ways to make payments with Scoot. With Dragonpay’s range of services, affordable fares are now more accessible and travelling has become even more convenient. Travelers should keep an eye out for attractive promotional fares to amazing popular destinations such as Thailand, Australia, Saudi Arabia, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia and the Maldives.
Aside from giving fantastic value airfare, Scoot also provides a safe, reliable and contemporary travel experience with a unique attitude—”The Scootitude.” Scoot was voted 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018 Best Low-Cost Airline in Asia Pacific by AirlineRatings.com and ranked in the Top 10 of the World’s Best Low-Cost Airlines in 2015 and 2018 by Skytrax. Scoot’s network presently encompasses 66 destinations across 18 countries and territories, with more to join the network soon.
