Travel Hacks: Quick Guide to an Affordable and Unforgettable Vacation

Seat Sales

Philippine Airlines (PAL) and Cebu Pacific are the top local airlines that offer promotional fares throughout the year. Usually, they announce this on their websites or Facebook pages a few days before they launch the promo, so you better sign-up on each site to get updated regularly!

One major reminder, though, for popular locations, it’s best if you wait at least 15 minutes before the promo event on their site starts as these fares usually sell out fast. This is especially the case if you’ve chosen to travel on the holidays or peak season dates.


These places are usually Siargao and Boracay locally, while popular destinations internationally include Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, and Korea! If you’re willing to travel during dates that aren’t in the peak season, however, you can surely find the perfect fare at the most affordable rate!

Just in time too, PAL is having their ultimate seat sale of the year right now. If you book your flight before September 3, you can get flights for as low as Php 599 to Kalibo, Php 959 to Cebu, or Bohol for Php 1,399. But you’ll need to hurry before seats run out!

Here are the websites where you can find specific promotional fares for your dream vacation:
