PISO FARE or the 1PHP base fare is by far the most popular seat sale in the country. Here, passengers get to book budget-friendly tickets to local and international destinations.
So if you’re itching to see more of our 7,107 islands or experience another country’s culture, read the tips on how to snag a piso fare seat :
BE FLEXIBLE ON YOUR TRAVEL DATE
Best to avoid dates that fall on a holiday, weekend or peak date departure. These days tend to get sold-out faster than other days.
BOOK IN ADVANCE, at least 1 year before your travel date. Book per way. This way, it won’t be a hassle if we can’t book the return date immediately. We can do it on the next promo fare or seat sale announcement since we still have lots of time.
Make sure you are free on your travel dates as you don’t want to end up canceling it when your boss doesn’t approve your vacation leave. Promo fare tickets can’t be refunded and don’t allow a name change. REBOOKING is allowed but there are corresponding fees
REMOVE THE ADD-ONS
Remove the seat selector, baggage allowance, meals and travel insurance. These add-ons are pre-selected by default, they come with ADDITIONAL FEES, so remove them.
In case you were not able to purchase the prepaid baggage during initial booking, you can still add baggage allowance via ” Manage Booking ” tab of Cebu Pacific online booking or call their hotlines at least 4 hours before departure.
DON’T DO BULK BOOKING
Book for just one or two people, for you to have that same flight (same plane, same day, same time).If you plan to travel as a group, there’s always a chance you’ll end up taking different flights since there are only 3-4 seats allotted per airplane during Piso Fare promos.
BOOK DURING WEE HOURS
The sale usually activates at 12 midnight. During the sale, airline websites can’t seem to handle the volume of users trying to book at the same time, slowing down the system. So book while the rest of the world is in slumber or busy. Try during 2am-4am , 10am-11am , 2pm-4pm, 5pm-7pm .
Online booking is not exclusive to credit card users only. You have the option to use your ATM card or pay it at payment centers. Pay within 24 hours after booking your flight, and get your confirmed ticket the next day at 7-11 Convenience Stores, Cebuana Lhuillier, LBC, SM Payment Center, EC Pay, and Robinsons Department Store.
Promo updates are posted frequently on the airlines’ official website and social media accounts. Make sure to check and follow them.
