Going on a trip to another country is exciting. But getting ready for it can be a lot of work. You need to pack your bags, learn about the airport, and do many other things before you can go to the place you want to go. 

The people at SM Store know how hard it can be to plan a trip. They want to make it easier for you to get everything ready. With SM Store’s services, you don’t need to run around or wait in long lines anymore. Now, you can quickly get everything you need for your trip.

Request PSA Certificates

Need to apply for or renew your passport? Get a copy of your PSA birth certificate and marriage certificate at SM Store!

Going through the process of obtaining these documents can sometimes be burdensome and time-consuming, especially when time is of the essence. SM Store can help process your PSA documents. Whether you need a birth certificate, marriage certificate, or any other document, head to SM Store Customer Service to start processing your document requests on time.

Pay for Airline Tickets

Buying plane tickets is an essential aspect of travel, but the process of paying for them can often be a stressful experience. Long queues, limited payment options, and the uncertainty of seat availability can easily mar an otherwise exciting time. Fortunately, SM Store’s Bills Payment service offers a convenient and hassle-free solution to this challenge.

You can conveniently pay for airline tickets at any SM Store branch! All you need to do is visit SM Store Customer Service area, go to the dedicated bills payment counter for travel payments, and settle your airfares. Make sure to bring your ticket booking reference number and the total amount due.

SM Store Bills payment list of merchants includes Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, and other major carriers. Just remember to check the payment deadline for tickets from the flight carrier you booked so you won’t miss it!

Settle Travel Tax

Traveling to other countries can be an exciting and memorable experience but before you take off, make sure to pay your travel tax first. If you don’t know where to pay travel tax in the Philippines, just go to the nearest SM Store!

Paying your travel tax in advance using SM Store’s Bills Payment service helps you avoid any last-minute hassles and ensures a smooth departure. Simply go to the Customer Service area inside SM Store and settle your travel tax on the counter.
