Want to save money on your next flight to/from or in the Philippines.

This guide is going to show you know how to find cheap flights & promos on Cebu Pacific.

Including essential things to know, step-by-step guides on how to book, and helpful tips about flying with the airline.

Get started

Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ largest budget airline, offers affordable year-round airfares on flights in the Philippines. It is quite popular especially among budget travelers for selling cheap promo fares.

Book the cheapest flights during piso fare promos

The cheapest flights that you can book with the airline are called piso fares (P1 or one peso fare). These ultra-cheap flight sales only happen a few times a year, however.

During a piso fare promo, domestic roundtrip tickets can be bought for as low as P300 all-in! Consider yourself very lucky if you encounter one & book fast because seats get sold out quickly.

Promo fares are offered very frequently

Don’t worry, you can still find affordable Cebu Pacific flights on its more frequent promotions that are scheduled regularly and usually announced multiple times a week.

You can easily book one-way domestic tickets in the Philippines for less than PHP1,500. This is a huge money saver considering domestic flights typically get sold from PHP1,500 to PHP2,500 and upwards, depending on booking & travel dates.

Where to find Cebu Pacific promo fares?

Seat sales and discount fares are easy to find if you know where to look.

Before you book

Read promo details & conditions carefully — Be mindful of important details posted on the announcement, especially the sale period and travel period. 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, make sure to watch out for the next promo announcement.

Check fares 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 or mobile app. The process of booking promo flights should be the same as booking regular flights. Make sure to read conditions posted on the announcement to confirm the method of booking.

Book directly with Cebu Pacific — The biggest reason to book and check fares online is that most promo fares by Cebu Pacific are only available on their official website, mobile app, booking offices or call centers.

Third-party travel agencies, even if they are affiliated with Cebu Pacific, might not have access to promo fares. These agencies will likely tell you that they cannot find the discounted fares in their system, and offer regular fares instead.

Book as soon as possible — 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 people who are also on the hunt for cheap airfares.

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.

Where to find promo codes & coupons

Promo or coupon codes are not needed for most seat sales by Cebu Pacific. In case they are, these codes should be posted along with the announcement details.

What are all-in fares & base fares?

Cebu Pacific may advertise prices as “all-in” fares or “base fares” on their sale announcement.

An “all-in” fare is the lowest price charged upon checkout. This price includes the airline’s base fare, fuel surcharge, booking fees, 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.

On the other hand, if a price is advertised as a “base fare”, expect these additional fees added on top of the advertised base fare price: fuel surcharge, booking fees & mandatory airport/government taxes.

Also, both “all-in” and base fares may not include fees collected at the airport (during the pre-departure process). An example of this is the Philippine airport terminal fee and/or travel tax.

How to book Cebu Pacific flights & promo

Cebu Pacific has various booking channels. The most convenient way is to book online through on their website or mobile app. You can also buy flights by calling their booking hotline or by visiting their official ticketing offices and accredited travel agencies.

You may also click the dates displayed above the flight results to view airfares on previous or later dates. Prices shown under each date are the lowest fare that you can book on that day.

In case you found a promo fare announcement by Cebu Pacific and they are not listed on this page, seats allocated for the promo might already be sold out. Promo seats are limited per flight, especially during peak travel dates and popular promos like piso fares. Remember to check other dates for availability. Also, make sure that the selling period has not yet expired and that your flight dates match the travel period mentioned in the announcement.

Step 5 — Click the “Continue” button to proceed to the next page. Carefully read the fare rules & conditions posted before proceeding.

Step 6 — Continue as GetGo Member. Log-in using your GetGo account to save time filling up the forms (as a guest user). If you don’t a GetGo account yet, this is a good time to sign-up and create an account.

Step 7 — Enter guest details. Provide details of all persons that will be going on the flight. If you are one of the guests flying, you may select the “I’m traveling” checkbox to automatically pre-fill your details. In any case, here are passenger/guest information needed for each passenger:

Step 8 — Select add-ons

Select pre-ordered meals. When booking international flights, meals may be automatically added to the fare. If you do not want to purchase this now, make sure to remove it.

Travelsure travel insurance. This is added automatically by default. You need to manually remove this fee if you do not plan on purchasing. To remove the Travelsure cost, click on the “Change” link and then the “No insurance.” link. You may also remove it per guest.

Seat selector. This is added automatically by default. You need to manually remove this fee if you do not plan on pre-selecting a reserved seat. If you want to remove this option and buy a cheaper flight, you can do so by clicking “X” on the seat number text displayed next to the guest names. You can also do this by clicking on the “Remove seat selection” text.

Surfboard & sports equipment.

Step 9 — Review the booking summary. Carefully read the flight details, fare price, and fare conditions. If you want to make sure that you are purchasing the cheapest flight ticket, click the “VIET FARE BREAKDOWN”. Then review items under “Add-Ons”. Optional add-ons like baggage allowance, meals, travel insurance, and seat selector may be added to your fare if you do not manually remove them.

Here are some important details, conditions, and policies that you may want to review and double-check:

  • Flight dates, departure, and arrival times.
  • Airport terminals on departure, arrival, and connecting flights.
  • Fare breakdown.

  • Baggage allowance, meals, and other add-ons.
  • Check in guidelines.
  • Check-in and hand carry baggage allowance.

Step 10 — Pay for your flight. Enter your contact information and select a payment method. You can either pay online & enjoy instant flight confirmation or send your payment offline through Cebu Pacific‘s many payment centers (in case you prefer to pay in cash, for example).

Step 11 — Wait for the confirmation message, which will be sent to your email address.

Step 12 — Print the electronic ticket/itinerary sent to your email address upon confirmation of payment. Depending on the airport policy, you may instead show a digital copy of the electronic ticket that you saved on your mobile phone.
