Make sure to follow our announcement and sharing on Facebook at Facebook.com/pisofarepromo if you want to get alert when piso fare and red hot sale are available.

We also provide sample tickets to show as evidence that the advertised fare is really available for online booking.

Take note: Our website will not process booking for you or anyone. You must be the one to book via AirAsia website itself. Do not entertain anyone you don’t know on Facebook who will say you will send the money to them and they can book for you. Please take care, and avoid scams.

STRATEGIES: Book Air Asia Red Hot Sale Tickets

  1. Do online booking at the AirAsia website airasia.com.ph. Do not go to travel agency or ticket booking outlet. Why? Because available red hot sale 2017 will be gone in a flash due to the hundreds, thousands of passengers booking online. Trust us on this, our website has been covering piso fares and promos since 2013!

2. If you have access to internet banking, we recommend that as early as today you will enroll DragonPay to your online banking account. Why? Because AirAsia allows atm and debit card payments processed via DragonPay.

Plus, based on past experience, there is NO SERVICE CHARGE if you will use DragonPay to pay for your Air Asia promo tickets 2017 to 2018.

Update March 11: We just did a trial booking a few minutes ago and have chosen DragonPay, this payment option now has a service charge of P150! We will be testing again during the Red Hot Promo period if this is confirmed.

Credit card payment has a transaction fee of about P130 plus. We will be checking if transaction fee has increase this 2017.

3. Based on past red hot sale promotions, BIG members can book a day early but BIG members using points to pay for tickets is not allowed to use DragonPay to pay or payment centers. Only Credit Card option is allowed for the early access booking. If this has changed this 2017, we will alert you and all readers.

So meaning no escape but pay the credit card transaction fee for online booking of tickets from Air Asia website.

4. No promo code needed to book this March 2017 red hot sale. Just go to the booking site, search and choose the flight with the cheapest fare or best schedule, enter guests details, then pay!

5. If you want to save, buy prepaid baggage during booking. Check-in baggage allowance price increases after you successfully booked and confirmed your ticket.

Example: You book a piso fare from Air Asia for December 2017 but you did not buy prepaid baggage, come November you decided to buy one. The baggage rate of 15, 20, 25, 30, 40 kilos will increase.

See this sample domestic flight Manila to Cebu, different baggage fee if you buy DURING initial booking and AFTER initial booking.

Excess baggage is more expensive if you will be charged one at the airport counter when you check-in. How much is the Air Asia excess baggage rate for domestic flights? It’s P360 per kilo!!! So if you know you will be bringing large bag, book prepaid baggage!

  1. Although the official travel date for this promo is not revealed yet, 1Pisofare recommends you plot your vacation dates for second half of 2017 and first half of 2018. Plan your flight dates for
  • June, July, August, September, October, November, December 2017
  • January, February, March, April, May, June 2018

If you have ready travel dates, you can book straight away, beating other passengers who wants to book red hot promo tickets.

UPDATE: Booking and Travel Period for Red Hot Sale 2017 is now confirmed! Book from March 13 to 19 only. Travel on September 1, 2017 to June 5, 2018!!!

7. In previous promotions, some routes especially from Malaysia are offered at 0 fare. So it is a good time to think about where to travel especially in South East Asia under the AirAsia Network. So in case routes are offered at zero fare, you are ready!

8. Know where you want to fly. Refer to this list of destinations covered by direct non-stop flights of AirAsia from the Philippines – domestic and international routes.
