Summer has officially started. Have you made your vacation plans yet? Here’s an important tip: you’ve waited for this trip for a pretty long time, and planning can put you on track to your dream summer getaway with your barkada. The trick to a perfect plan? DIY, or do it yourself, because it is only you, along with travel buddies, who know exactly what you want and what will make this season worthwhile.
While short, unplanned trips can be fun, who wants the headaches of mismatched schedules of your friends, seeing “No Vacancy” signs, and being unfamiliar with the locale? But how can you make sure that planning for the trip of a lifetime doesn’t become a headache too?
The answer is in your hands – rather your fingertips. Your mobile phone, that essential tool for connecting with friends, relatives, classmates and orgmates, as well as with your barkada whom you haven’t seen for ages, can be put to better use, thanks to another revolutionary service from innovation leader Globe Telecom.
Plan the perfect summer getaway and do it yourself with Globe Prepaid GoSakto, the world’s first-ever do-it-yourself prepaid promo.

With Globe Prepaid GoSakto, subscribers can choose the type and number of calls, texts and mobile surfing megabytes (MB), as well as the validity and price of their promo, making it exact and perfect for their needs.

- So you’ve sealed the venue and date of your trip and are counting the days before the big day. And just like any regular adventurer, you scout whether you’ve made the right choice when it comes to your destination. Use your mobile phone to surf the ‘Net for reviews, blogs, and forum discussions. Download a complete music playlist which can come in handy during the long roadtrip. To do this, get yourself a surfing service for an instant on-the-go internet connection. Your 20MB of data for mobile surfing should be enough to explore the World Wide Web at the comfort of your mobile phone.
