MANILA – A budget hotel chain is reducing the rates of its key properties following the eruption of the Taal Volcano, which has affected locals and travelers across the country.

In a statement sent to ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, ZEN Rooms said it is giving a 30% discount via the voucher code “ZENCARES,” which can be used on the hotel chain’s website to book accommodations.

With the discount, which is valid until January 16, rooms can be booked as low as P300 a night. 

Some of the locations covered by the promo include Tagaytay, Metro Manila, Vigan, Baguio, La Union, Baler, and Bacolod.

“We hope to help those who have been impacted by this natural calamity by providing budget accommodation at rates below our cost line on all our key hotels across the Philippines,” said Amit Shukla, regional director for marketing at ZEN Rooms.

“Our properties in affected areas are providing face masks to guests and assisting with relocations to safer areas in Metro Manila,” Shukla added. “We will continue to assess the situation in the Philippines and are prepared to offer additional assistance as appropriate.”

Taal Volcano erupted Sunday noon, spewing ash that reached Metro Manila and other parts of Luzon and disrupted hundreds of flights.
