Cebu Pacific is one of the leading low-cost airlines in the Philippines, with its famous tagline “Now, every Juan can fly.” It offers a variety of promo fares throughout the year. By booking Cebu Pacific promo fare, you can potentially save thousands of pesos compared to regular fare for local and international tickets. However, we know how booking these promo fares can be challenging due to high demand and limited available. As such, here’s a guide on how you can successfully book Cebu Pacific promo seats.
Cebu Pacific Promos
Cebu Pacific offers different promos throughout the years, which can take you to the most popular destinations in the Philippines including Coron, El Nido, Cebu, Bohol, Iloilo, and more. The best promos that you should look out for are the Cebu Pacific Piso Fare and Cebu Pacific Super Pass.
Cebu Pacific Piso Fare
Cebu Pacific Piso Fare offers seats with a P1 base charge. Other fees still apply, including service charge, taxes, insurance, and other optional fees such as baggage allowance. With a piso fare ticket, you can travel cheaply around the Philippines for as low as P1000, as well as other countries.
Cebu Pacific Super Pass
Cebu Pacific Super Pass is one of the most recent promos by Cebu Pacific to accommodate the flight changes caused by the recent COVID-19 pandemic. A super pass is a one-way ticket that costs a base fare of P99 and can be used to any locations in the Philippines, with a few exceptions. It is basically a blank ticket — you decide when and where to go after purchasing it.
So, what’s the catch? You can only use the super pass voucher within a month of your expected travel date. However, it is still a good deal since you can travel to different local destinations for around P1500 per way.
Other Cebu Pacific Promos
Aside from the Cebu Pacific Piso Fare and Cebu Pacific Super Pass, Cebu Pacific also has other promos with P25, P88, P99, and P199 base fare.
What to know about Cebu Pacific promos
When to expect Cebu Pacific promos?
Cebu Pacific offers these promos throughout the year. However, no one knows when the promos are scheduled. Your best bet is to keep updated with promos and seat sales by subscribing in the airline’s newsletter and social media pages. You can also expect promos on special holidays, such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Independence Day, All Saints’ Day, and other important dates.
As a reminder, oftentimes the promo travel period does not cover peak holidays including Christmas and New Year.
Is there a limit to how many seat sales you can book?
You can book as many promo fares as you can. But remember that these sold out fast, so prepare your details and cash (or digital payment) in advance.
Is it better to book by yourself or through a travel agent?
Most passengers prefer booking by themselves to save money. However, if you are unsure or unfamiliar with the process, it doesn’t hurt to get a travel agent to do it for you (for an additional cost, of course).
Can you reschedule a flight booked during a seat sale?
Unfortunately, no. Most seat sales have a no rescheduling/no refund restriction. If you need to reschedule your flight, you need to book a new ticket. However, if Cebu Pacific initiated the change in your flight, then you have the option to choose a new schedule/time slot.
Sometimes, the new changes to your flight may be undesirable and this is where it gets tricky. Your best course of action is to get in touch ASAP with the airline’s customer service through their website chat service or social media pages.
Can you modify details for flights booked during a seat sale?
It’s not uncommon for a passenger to accidently type in the wrong name, in which case all you have to do is contact Cebu Pacific’s customer service for correction.
How can you settle disputes with Cebu Pacific?
If you have a payment dispute, such as when you are credited for multiple bookings through a technical error, you can reach out to Cebu Pacific’s customer service and they will resolve the issue. In case of other issues and especially if you find the airline unhelpful, you can file a complaint to the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB). Cebu Pacific is usually more responsive once CAB is involved in the issue.
How to book a Cebu Pacific promo
Are you unfamiliar with how to book Cebu Pacific promos? It’s simple and we have listed the steps for you.
1. Go to Cebu Pacific’s official website: cebupacificair. Or download its mobile application and book there.
2. Enter your details. Input your preferred travel date, your origin and destination, and the number of travelers you are booking for.
3. Choose your flights. Your preferred date may not have a seat sale, so it’s best to be flexible in your plans. It is easier to book late-afternoon and evening flights compared to morning to early-afternoon flights. There are also more availabilities for weekday flights compared to weekends.
4. Choose your add-ons. Do you want to add in-flight meals, choose a seat, or add baggage allowance to your flight? If you’re going on a local trip for a few days only, most likely you won’t need any of these so feel free to skip them.
5. Enter passenger details. Enter your details and your companions’ as well, including full name and birth date.
6. Review your booking details. Make sure that the total cost is correct and there are no accidental add-ons left on your receipt.
7. Pay for your booking. Select a payment method, including debit card, credit card, or different payment centers.
And there you have it! After completing the payment, wait for the email from Cebu Pacific containing your flight confirmation and itinerary. Sometimes, it takes about 24 hours for the email to arrive, so be patient. If after that period, you still haven’t received an email, contact Cebu Pacific’s customer service immediately.
Tips and Tricks on Booking Cebu Pacific Seat Sale Promos
Here are some tried-and-tested methods so you can successfully book Cebu Pacific promos.
Follow Cebu Pacific’s official pages. Subscribe to Cebu Pacific’s newsletter to receive emails about upcoming promos and follow their Facebook for announcements. If you aren’t always online, ask your family or friends to inform you when a new promo is announced.
Plan ahead. As said above, no one knows when a Cebu Pacific seat sale will be announced so it’s best to prepare ahead of time. List down your desired travel date and destination, as well as a Plan B in case your first options are not available. Remember: being flexible is key! If you’re booking for other people as well , have their details (full name, birth date, and passport details for international flights) in advance so you can immediately go ahead with the booking.
Secure a fast internet connection. Cebu Pacific seat sales sold out fast, particularly for popular tourist attractions so you better make sure that your internet connection can match up.
Book small groups only. Okay, this is not fully substantiated but there are personal testimonies that Cebu Pacific promo fares do not appear when you are booking in bulk. So to be safe, book for 1-3 people at a time only. It’s also reasonable to assign the booking to more than one person if you’re a large group because entering each passenger’s details can take up time.
Pro Tip: Use Skyscanner or Google Flights. Airline websites are known to crash or to download slowly during seat sales, and sometimes it takes hours for the website to get back up. So you can use third-party websites such as Skyscanner and Google Flights to check the prices for your preferred dates instead. Then when the website becomes available, you already know which travel destination and date to book.
Stay updated and check for changes. Cebu Pacific promo flights are known for rescheduling and cancellations. So monitor your email and Cebu Pacific’s website for any notifications regarding rescheduling, cancellations, or modifications to your booking.
Other things to keep in mind: Make sure that you are typing in the correct website and social media pages for Cebu Pacific. There are a lot of online scams nowadays, including phishing sites that will target your credit card details or fake Facebook pages that pretend to be the airline’s customer service to scam you out of your money.
Cebu Pacific versus other airlines
Another low-cost airline that you should look out for is AirAsia. AirAsia also offers promos at various points throughout the year. However, in comparison with Cebu Pacific, AirAsia’s ticket costs are usually more expensive even with seat sales. There is also additional fee for using online payments like credit cards, which can be cost-prohibitive if you’re looking for a budget-friendly flight.
There is also Philippine Airlines (or PAL), which is the flag carrier of the Philippines. PAL offers high-cost flight tickets and usually cater to middle-class or business passengers. Although PAL also offers promos, the prices are still more expensive compared to AirAsia and Cebu Pacific promo fares.
At the end of the day, Cebu Pacific still offers the best prices for local and international flights, especially with their frequent promos and seat sales.
