Cebu Pacific Air is undoubtedly the budget airline with the most extensive network in the Philippines. This air transport company is the preferred way to fly for many budget travellers since they regularly offers seat sales and promos all throughout the year, with the most coveted being the piso fare promo tickets.
Aside from one peso fares (PHP 1), travellers are also on the watch for airfare deals like 199 pesos, 299 pesos, 143 pesos, “Snap Sale”, 50% off, “anniversary promo”, and such. The promo rate can either be “base fare” or “all-in”.
The cheapest airfare that one can possibly book on Cebu Pac is the “piso fare”. This is offered usually 2 to 3 times a year. This is high in demand so if there is a newly launched piso fare promo from Cebu Pacific for 2019 or 2020, book the tickets asap.
The next P1 promo is maybe just around the corner, so we at 1Pisofare.com now shares these bookings tips and best practices to help you find and book those most coveted P1 seat sale offers as they come.

Are Piso Fare Real?!
Some of our readers have complained that piso fares are fake. We say, they are wrong! Piso Fare sale tickets are REAL. The airline secured the necessary DTI permits to hold seat sales. Without DTI approval, no airline is allowed to run deals and promos.
Personally, we have booked multiple Cebu Pacific piso fare tickets for years and years. In fact, the last one we got was just last December 25 wherein we booked a Cebu to Manila ticket for only P596.12 per person for a flight in November 2019.
For proof here is our confirmed eTicket, check-out the fare breakdown. It’s a piso fare!!!
How did we get it? What our preparations so we are ready every time there is a piso fare promo? That’s what we will reveal on this post. Follow us as we give out the tips that have helped us land these amazing peso deals.
But before that, we have to inform you that piso promo slots are VERY LIMITED. The best action is to search and book piso fare as soon as the airline announced that there is one.
Some more noteworthy deals to watch out for are Philippine Airlines anniversary promo 2019, PAL Piso Fare, hope there is one this year, and Air Asia Red Hot Piso Sale.
KELAN MAGKAKARON NG PISO FARE ANG CEBU PACIFIC?
The short answer is no one knows exactly when there is a piso fare except if you are working in Cebu Pacific and is in-charge for coming up with airfare deals. But based on our extensive experience in serving promo alerts to readers for years, we noticed that airlines like Cebu Pacific and PAL announces ultra-cheap seat sales during special occasions and celebrations.
Example of these ultra-cheap promos are the following:
Piso fare promo offered last December 24 to 25 in celebration of the Christmas holidays.
Cebu Pacific Anniversary Promo as low as 22 pesos base fare last March 2018. There might be an anniversary promo 2019 soon.
Ticket Sale P11.11 Base fare was offered last November 11. There might be another Cebu Pacific 11.11 promo this 2019.
PISO LANG BA TALAGA BABAYARAN?
Hindi po. The P1 is the base fare ticket price. There are other charges like admin processing fee which some airline refers to as ‘web ticketing fee’ or ‘ticketing service charge’. Another fee that will be added to get the total cost of ticket is the terminal fee and VAT. Sometimes, fuel charges will be added too.
Right now the admin ticketing fee or web admin fee of Cebu Pacific Air is P280 per person. The fuel surcharge varies depending on the distance.
As to the airport terminal fee, it’s P200 for Manila, Kalibo, Davao, Iloilo, Bohol, etc. For flights departing Cebu, it’s P300. Pinakamahal na terminal fee ay mga flights na galing Cebu – Mactan International Airport.
The last piso fare ng Cebu Pacific ay 1 peso lang ang ticket base fare plus web admin fee plus terminal fee (PH Service Charge) plus VAT. Walang fuel surcharge kaya ang total ticket price na binayaran namin is only P1,192.24 for two persons na, one-way, single-trip.
P1,192.24 / 2 = P596.12 total cost of the ticket bought during a piso fare sale of Cebu Pacific.
HOW TO PAY PISO FARE 2019 TICKETS
Normally, a promo booked online can be paid using credit card, debit card, Paypal, eWallets, and cash. But since piso fare promos are extra-special, usually the accepted way to pay is all method except cash.
Bakit hindi tinatanggap ang cash pag may piso fare? This is just our hunch kung ano ang reason why cash are not accepted to pay for P1 tickets – we think this is probably done para iwas sa joy-bookers.
What or who are joy bookers? These are the people or individuals who book lots of promo fares, reserve it, but have no intention of paying for it. Yung tipong, mag bo-book ng ticket, then they will choose cash payment, then mag-iisip pa if itutuloy ang booking or pabayaan nalang mag expire ang reservation. Sayang yung slot na nakuha nila tapos ma-wa-waste lang at the end. Kung di sana nila binook at nireserve baka yung ibang kailangan talaga ang ticket ay syang makakabook.
Madaming joy bookers dati, kaya siguro airlines have become strict and only offer piso fare tickets for immediate payment. Wala ng cash payment so those who are really and truly planning to fly will be able to book. Hindi na magiging ka-competensya pa ang mga joy-bookers, kung baga.
But if wala kayong credit or debit card, don’t be sad because there are instances wherein the promo is first offered for immediate payment on the first day (credit card and debit card) and then the following day, available na for cash payment.
A good example is the last piso fare of Cebu Pacific wherein only credit card/debit card/paypal are accepted for bookings made in December 24, then by December 25 the slots are open to those who wish to pay using cash in partner centers.
By the way, our team at 1 Piso Fare can’t book your ticket since we don’t accept and process booking request at this website but we will guide you so you can do it yourself. It’s easy once you get the hang of it.

Best to buy the tickets direct via the website of Cebu Pacific.
By the way, when we share that the promo is “as low as Php xxx.xx”, it means that may mga ticket for a particular route na ang base fare ay talagang Php 99.00, Php 199.00, Php 299.00 pesos lang, etc. But it doesn’t mean, one can find the lowest quoted one-way base fare on all dates. Selected dates lang ang merong promo, that’s why we always suggest to search as many travel dates as you can and then compare the different rates.
These are the flight add-ons available:
Prepaid Baggage (Standard, Large, Extra-Large)
Cebu Pacific Air is strictly implementing their check-in bag policy wherein a specific number of bags is allowed depending on the prepaid package availed by the passenger (in pieces and in weight).
Standard Baggage – maximum of 2 pieces of bags, total weigh max of 20 kilos

BEST PRACTICES and BOOKING TIPS
The promos and sales of Cebu Pacific are usually shared on the company’s social media account – facebook, twitter, instagram. The current promo will also appear on the homepage of the booking site www.cebupacificair.com.
As a summary, here’s the procedure in getting those high-in demand promo tickets:
First, BE READY WITH YOUR PREFERRED TRAVEL DATE but be flexible so you have a good chance of booking cheap flights. One may also consult the Philippine Holiday declaration by Malacanang for 2019.
Second, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL THE PASSENGER DETAILS like first name, last name, email, contact number, birthday, GETGO number (optional).
Third, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH FUNDS in your atm card, eWallets, credit card, Paypal, Alipay, cash to pay the ticket.
Fourth, GO TO THE BOOKING WEBSITE and INPUT YOUR ROUTE, TRAVEL DATE, NUMBER OF PAX. Some promos requires a promo code but we have observe that if the sale is a piso fare, walang Cebu Pacific promo code na kailangan para makabili ng ticket.
Fifth, CHECK OTHER TRAVEL DATES if you can’t find the promos on your first try and then COMPARE THE RATES.
Promos are first come, first serve basis until ticket lasts or until end of sale period, whichever comes first. SALE TICKETS ARE ALWAYS LIMITED!
BOOKING TIP NO. 1:
If gusto ng promo, booking months in advance is required. As a sample, the last piso fare sale of Cebu Pacific was last December 24/25, 2018 and the travel period covered by the promo is July, August, September, October, November 2019. Literal na months ang aantayin bago ang flight mo.
BOOKING TIP NO 2:
Usually during a piso fares promo, what we do is book first one-way ticket then find a return ticket on the next round of seat sale. So right now, we have a ticket for November 2019 from Cebu to Manila, wala pa kaming ticket pabalik. Mag-aantay kami ng next promo fare baka dun na kami makakita ng mura na ticket sa Cebu Pacific Air for the return flight.
BOOKING TIP NO. 3:
If you are a big group, we suggest that you book at most 4 passengers in a single itinerary. There is less chance of finding P1 base fare promos if you will book for 5 to 8 pax in one try. The fewer the passengers, the better chance of finding and securing piso sale tickets.
BOOKING TIP NO. 4:
Best to try booking at early dawn, like 3 to 5 AM, instead of waiting at 12 midnight. Bakit? Usually kasi sangkatutak ang nag-aantay sa midnight start of a promo that sometimes the booking site encounters hiccups, like slow to load, web page won’t load, won’t connect, you are put in a waiting room, or a long queue na parang di gumagalaw.
Ang ginagawa namin pag may Cebu Pacific piso fare, pinapahupa muna namin ang traffic, then around dawn dun kami mag ta-try mag book. Doing it this way isn’t a guarantee na makakuha ng promo, mind you, but if we based it on our experience, mas malaki ang chance pag di ka sasabay sa bugso sa hating-gabi.
BOOKING TIP NO. 5:
If the website won’t load, try booking using the Cebu Pacific Mobile App. Download it via Google Play or PlayStore.
If the website and app won’t connect, wait for an hour or so, then try again. Maybe the booking site is just experiencing out of this world traffic hits and can’t handle the traffic-surge temporarily.
BOOKING TIP NO. 6:
Is it possible to buy piso fare tickets in the branches of Cebu Pacific or online-booking is required? Based on our observation, piso fares are usually only available for online booking, but there have been sales in the past wherein the tickets are also available in other booking channels like ticketing offices, hotline reservations, accredited travel agencies.
Not to worry though, if you have subscribed to us on Facebook (facebook.com/pisofarepromo) or subscribe via email, we usually inform our readers if the promo is online only or if other ways of booking are available.
BOOKING TIP NO. 7:
Promo tickets are normally non-refundable so you have to be very sure of your flight date.
Promo ticket may be refunded for free on specific conditions, i.e. Cebu Pacific itself sent an advisory that the flight was cancelled or delayed. Affected passengers will be given options including putting the value in a travel fund, rebook for free, or refund the amount. But if there is no advisory, then refunding the payment is not possible.
Take note of the full terms and conditions of a Cebu Pacific ticket sale.
Usually when there is a peso offer, all or most domestic routes are part of the sale and only selected international routes. It is still best to know the list of destinations that’s included in the promo, so if you are interested, we recommend that you watch out for the post that we will publish in relation to a Cebu Pacific piso fare promo. We will be sharing the destinations and rates, plus accepted payment methods, and other pertinent info.
All quoted promo rates are one-way, single-journey but interested passengers may book round trip as well as multi-city.
