Got in just in time to avail of Cebu Pacific’s Unfare! promo which ended yesterday. I have to admit that I booked on a whim but the One Peso fare to select destinations in the country was just too cheap to resist. Flights to Kalibo, Tagbilaran and Puerto Princesa were already fully booked so I chose Iloilo. I don’t know why I picked Iloilo (har! har!) but the main reason is that I haven’t been there. I do plan to go on a food trip there when I travel early October. Plus, it’s a good jump-off point to Guimaras Island and Boracay is only five hours away by land. Munchin’ in Iloilo then partyin’ in Boracay in a span of three days seems like a very good idea.
I booked for this promo by telephone only. The line was busy for a few minutes but when I got through, I just gave the agent my credit card number and some details. Total fare, including taxes and surcharges, amounted to P1,600++++
It’s a good thing that local airlines are doing their thing to promote domestic tourism. People would be well-advised to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to see their country. From Manila, travelling by air seems shorter than if you go two to three hours to Laguna or Batangas by land. For those interested, Air Philippines has a parallel P1 fare promo ongoing until April 15.
