Have you ever seen a piso fare online only to think, “What a joke! That is so not true!” or “I never get those deals!” Well folks, it is true and contrary to popular belief, it’s NOT an urban legend. It really is possible to book a flight that has a ₱1 base fare, and I’m here to share some tips on HOW you can snag your next big travel deal!
- Sign up for the newsletters! Yeah, ok, so you’re probably not fond of getting “useless” emails every now and then from xyz company, but how else are you supposed to know about the deals before everyone else does? Remember, the early bird gets the worm so type that email address down and become that early bird!
TIP: Download airline apps. Sometimes the interface is actually more user-friendly and easier to browse. So make good use of that storage space on your smartphone and download that app. You’re welcome.
- Know your public holidays. Maximize your vacation leaves and book those long weekends! Take 2 days before or after the long weekend and voila! an automatic 5-day leave with only 2 days (VL) consumed. #winning
- Log on to the website 5 minutes before the sale and pre-load your passenger information. Because there’s nothing more annoying than a browser timing out or worse, crashing due to massive web traffic! Pre-loaded passenger information saves you from that hassle and makes the process faster. One click and bam! information locked and loaded.
TIP: BE PATIENT! Beggars can’t be choosers so sit tight, pour yourself a drink and get your piso fare game face on.
BONUS TIP: Maxed out your credit card? Don’t fret! You can easily “reserve” that booking and pay for it over the counter within 24 hours.
So there you have it, ka-ching! Piso fare in the bag!
