Cebu Pacific Promo Guide

Cebu Pacific Promo Guide

So, you’ve heard of Cebu Pacific’s infamous “piso” and “zero” fares and want to book them? Start by learning basic information about promo fares.

Promo fares are cheap fares offered during one of Cebu Pacific’s seat sale periods. They are regularly announced every week, often even multiple times in a single week. Grabbing these low fares  is an excellent way to save on travel costs in the Philippines.

For many travelers, booking with Cebu Pacific is a no-brainer since they are the largest airline and operates the widest flight network in the Philippines.

After both airlines entered into a partnership in 2014, Tiger Air flights and promo fares may also be booked with Cebu Pacific Air.

Latest promo fares

Seat sale announcements are prominently displayed on the front page of Cebu Pacific’s official website.

We regularly check Cebu Pacific promo announcements and post the cheap fares below for your convenience:

A promo fare includes these important details: selling period, travel period, and destinations included. The selling period lasts two to four days. Meanwhile, the travel period may start a few weeks to several months ahead of the selling period.

If you are planning to book promo fares, you should start subscribing to Cebu Pacific sale alerts at least three months before your planned departure.

Once you have decided on a promo fare that you want to book, you can check flight prices and availability using Cebu Pacific’s online flight search, which may be accessed at http://www.cebupacificair.com/

Cebu Pacific tends to post base fares on its promo announcements. However, you can already view the all-in or final fares once you have accessed their flight search results.

A base fare is a fee that Cebu Pacific uses as a basis for calculating the final or “all in” price of the plane ticket. Base fares are still subject to additional fees that may include Cebu Pacific’s fuel surcharge, booking fees, add-on fees the passenger decides to purchase, government taxes, and airport-specific fees.

Promo fares are listed under a similarly named column. If you see a “Sold Out” message, it means that all promo seats for that particular flight has already been taken.

You can try searching on other dates or wait for the next announcement.

Compare Flights on Wego

You can also check airfares on travel search engines like Wego, which displays not only Cebu Pacific flight results but also flights from other airlines in the Philippines. It’s a fast and easy way to compare flight prices and schedules on competing airlines operating in the same routes.

Prices shown on Wego are minimum all-in fares already. The only additional fees you might have to pay are extra airline add-ons you decide to purchase like check-in baggage, seat selector, travel insurance, in-flight meals, etc.
