The Philippines’ very own low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific yesterday revived its One Peso seat sale dubbed ” All for Juan, P1+++ for All” to celebrate the completion of its refleeting program and the delivery of a new AirBus (or is it AirBuses?) The sale is on from March 2 to 8 and the travel period is from June 1- Dec. 15 of this year.
What’s good about this is that the single peso promo is not just applicable to their domestic destinations but also to CebuPac’s international flights to Bangkok, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
The one peso offer on the international flights looks one-way though as I found when I tried to book online just for the fun of it. I may get P1 going to Bangkok but get the discounted fare of P2,999 going back (plus all the applicable fees). Still, a friend swears CebuPac may be better since you don’t have to travel all the way to Clark Pampanga, unlike existing airlines stationed there, like Tiger.
I would advise that you plan your trip carefully and read the fine print first before making the advanced bookings which are, like, six months ahead. Oftentimes, the fine print is that your ticket is non-refundable and non-transferable. I remember being enticed by Cebu Pacific’s One peso promo last year where I booked for a return trip to Iloilo. It just so happened that when I was due to travel, Supertyphoon Milenyo came and there went my $40 down the drain. Phewwww!
