TRAVEL TIPS


Because of the variety of situations individuals are in, we can only provide basic understanding and expectation, as well as some general information that  we hope would be helpful to most members:

  • You are expected to secure your own airline reservations and travel documents as required by authorities.  
  • You are expected to secure your own hotel and lodging.  We have a list of hotels around the Central UMC area.  We do not guarantee any discount due to the fluctuation of rates according to the date of travel.  However, some have given us a possible corporate rate based on their relationship with the Philippine Central Conference Treasurer's Office.  As always the case, it pays to be early.
  • On the Hotel List Page you will find Hotel Contact Information.  A few have corporate discount offering, most don't because we are not in the position to commit to the minimum number of rooms.  It would be too much of a risk to undertake.  We appreciate your understanding.
  • Inquire from the hotel the transportation situation to/from the venue at the Central UMC.  A hotel shuttle service will be a huge amenity. 
  • Share with us any suggestions or good deals.  Email to:  ptumonong@att.net
