REFUNDING TICKET GUIDE
Our 1 Piso Fare team made a video guide this morning aiming to teach our loyal readers on the refunding process. These are the steps:
- Login to Cebu Pacific Manage Booking page, input your username and password.
- Select the booking that you want to request refund for.
- On the tabs above the flight itinerary, find and click “Request for Refund / Check Refund Status”.
- Click on the passenger name who wants a refund, and then input again the passenger name and email.
- The refund reasons will display, choose one.
Note: In our sample, passenger was not able to fly on the designated flight date due to personal reasons, so passenger was a “NO SHOW”. The ticket was purchased during a piso fare promo 2019 therefore the fare itself it not refundable BUT the “terminal fee and government taxes” portion of the cost of ticket is refundable.
The total price of the piso fare round trip ticket Cebu to Pagadian to Cebu with 20 kilos each way was P1,803.60. The base fare is 1 peso only so the cost of round trip tickets is x 2 = P2.00!!!
The terminal fee is labeled “PH Passenger Service Charge” on the ticket breakdown. For our sample, the airport terminal fee was P450, we expect this amount to be refunded by Cebu Pacific to the credit card used in purchasing the ticket.
Cebu Airport Fee – P300
Pagadian Airport fee – P150
Total Terminal Fees – P450
*We are still unsure if the Value Added Tax on the add-on like prepaid baggage is refundable. We will update this post once we get the credited amount back on the credit card.
6. After choosing the refund reason, a pop-up will appear Confirming the refund request. Click “Close” to go to the next page.
7. You will then get to the Refund Status wherein you can see the refund request reason, the date of request, the guest or passenger name, status, and notes.
