Home Cebu Pacific Promo: 14 Important Tips You Need to Know 174 shares How to book cheapest flights on Cebu Pacific? Read these must-know tips about promo fares, seat sales, and online booking. By Detourista.com Staff. Updated on April 10, 2016. Booking promo fares on Cebu Pacific is easy. Here are 14 important tips you should know about to get started on how to avail of these great discounts: 1. Promo fares are offered very frequently All sale alerts by Cebu Pacific are posted on cebupacificair.com, the airlines’ official website. Promo fares are announced regularly, at multiple times a week. These discounted prices are the cheapest flights that you can book with the airline. The airline’s most famous seat sales include their “piso” or “one peso” (PHP1) and “zero” (PHP0) fare promo that make it possible to book one-way flights for less than PHP500 all-in. These ultra-cheap flight sales only happen a few times a year, however. 2. The first step is to view the latest alerts To find active promos available today, click on any of the promo announcements displayed on the homepage at cebupacificair.com or navigate to the promos / seat sale page. Here, you will find a list of flights, prices, and other important details including the selling period and travel dates. 3. Carefully read conditions posted Seat sales are only available on specific selling and travel dates. Be mindful of these important details posted on the announcement. You should book your flights before the end of the selling period. In addition, promo fares are only available for dates on or within the travel period. If your travel plans do not match the travel period posted or if the promo had already expired, you may watch out for the next promo announcement by visiting the airline’s website again on a later date. 4. Check availability and book online When you’ve found a promo fare that you would like to book, the best way to check if they are available is to do a flight search online, directly on Cebu Pacific’s website. The process of booking promo flights should be the same as booking regular flights. Make sure you read special conditions on the announcement to confirm this. You can check the availability of promo fares online yourself by using the flight search box on the homepage. Enter your travel details and click “Find it” to view the search results. Prices listed on the results page are the cheapest prices at this moment, for your chosen dates and flight route. Select the promo fares if they are available and follow the on-screen instructions to book your flight. 5. Most promos are only available online The biggest reason to book and check fares online is that most promo fares by Cebu Pacific are only available on their official website or booking app. Third-party travel agencies, even if they are affiliated with Cebu Pacific, might not have access to the cheapest fares offered by the airline. These agencies will probably tell you that they cannot find the discounted fares in their system, and offer regular fares instead. 6. Promos are offered on a limited basis Before calling them “FAKE,” you should know that limited promo seats are available for any given flight route. If all promo seats are sold out on your chosen flight, you will only be able to view and book the next lowest regular fare. Cebu Pacific promo fares are quite popular and may get sold out very quickly. It’s important to book them as soon as possible to get ahead of other bookers. The airline also limits promo seats on certain dates and rarely offer them on “black-out dates,” which may include peak periods such as holidays, festival dates, and other busy dates for air travelers. In case you cannot find the promo prices advertised on the announcement, you may follow these tips to confirm whether a promo is fake or not: Make sure the promo has not yet expired. Confirm that your chosen travel dates match the travel period posted on the announcement. Check prices on other dates, perhaps days to months before or after your intended travel. Check prices on other flight routes and destinations mentioned on the promo announcement. 7. Check cheap flights on similar airlines You should also check cheap flights offered by other major airlines including Philippine Airlines, AirAsia, and TigerAir as well as Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Jetstar, other airlines that fly to/from the Philippines. 8.

Follow updates on social networking sites In addition to Cebu Pacific’s website, you may check seat sale updates by following their official channels on social networking sites. They maintain active channels on Facebook (fb.me/cebupacificair) and Twitter (twitter.com/cebupacificair). You may also follow Promo Fares on Facebook to follow updates from all airlines. 11. All-in fares VS base fares Cebu Pacific usually advertises “all-in” fares on their sale announcement. The all-in fare is the lowest fare that may be booked and already includes the base fare, airport fees, and government taxes. It does not include optional add-ons like check-in baggage, meals, travel insurance, seat selection and may not include fees and taxes charged on departure from certain airports. In March 2015, the airline removed the fuel surcharge from airfares. Also, prices listed are usually for one-way flights and may be available as “vice-versa,” sold at the same base fare. The all-in fare on the return flight may be different, depending on taxes and fees charged at the departure airport. 12. Flights may be booked without a credit card In addition to credit cards, Cebu Pacific also accepts payments through ATM cards, Paypal, and offline through over-the-counter payment centers at affiliated banks, LBC outlets, Robinsons malls, and SM malls. 13.
