VACAY.ph is a community of travelers and explorers looking for authentic and memorable experiences in exciting tourist destinations in the Philippines.
Booking through VACAY.ph gives you access to “advance purchase items” for popular or premier lodging and experiences in the Philippines at lower rates. This ensures a pre-booking for your stay or activity. Very soon, it will be the first and only booking platform available in a popular mobile SuperApp, to allow faster and simpler booking experiences.
VACAY.ph is for advance purchase only. This means that you’re purchasing a pre-booking, and actual stay dates are yet to be confirmed. You will need to re-book your actual stay with the establishment directly or through re-booking options provided by VACAY.ph. As this is for advance purchase only, you may only choose your stay dates 15 days after the purchase date unless otherwise different, as reflected on the establishment page.
All over the Philippines! And we plan to feature more than just stays but also event spaces, activities, and experiences.
