Queenie also mentioned that you may have the option to receive cash back on certain offers just by using the app.
It makes it easy to navigate, plan and book a range of activities when traveling in Australia or overseas, and users can save money on tourist attractions, events, hotels and transport.
Klook is the perfect app to use when planning weekend getaways or major international vacations. Queenie also mentioned that you may have the option to receive cash back on certain offers just by using the app.
Queenie and Pablo began their global journey in Singapore and will then travel to London, followed by Paris, New York, Vancouver and Las Vegas before returning to Sydney.
It only cost the pair $1,000 each for all flights, as they could use Qantas points earned by using a credit card for everyday purchases.
If they had paid for the flights, Queenie said it would have cost over $10,000.
On Instagram, the helpful video has since been viewed over 25,000 times and many have thanked Queenie for sharing the recommendation.

Marie Fe shared a video on Instagram and stuffed a pillowcase with excess clothes she couldn’t fit in her suitcase.
Marie and her Australian boyfriend Jake Snow have been known to share images of their travel adventures online and have developed a strong Instagram community of over 1.1 million people.
The ‘game-changing’ hack has been dubbed the ‘greatest thing ever’ by other online social media users.

In the short clip, Marie can be seen filling the empty pillowcase with clothes, then walking through the airport and onto the plane.
Although the pillowcase was filled with clothes, it seemed comfortable enough for Marie to rest her head on during the flight.
The smart hack can be used to save luggage space and would help avoid packing your suitcase beyond the maximum carrying limit.
