Cebu announces Sky High Seat Sale
End of Financial Year Sales (EOFYS) are so last season, it is now all about Cebu Pacific’s First of Financial Year Seat Sale (FOFYSS), to see Aussies’ tax returns fly further to exotic Philippine island destinations.
No matter the size of your return this financial year, there has never been a better time to swap Bali for Boracay and explore the wonders of the Philippines. Cebu’s latest seat sale allows Aussies to fly from Sydney or Melbourne to Manila from just $169, for travel between 1 September and 30 November 2019.
What better way for Aussies to score more bang for buck this financial year, than securing a great low-cost airfare thanks to Cebu Pacific’s FOFYSS. To help with your holiday travel planning, here are Cebu’s top money saving tips to see your next adventure reach new heights:
1. Stay for less
Philippine accommodation offers something for everyone. You can score an affordable night’s sleep by sticking to the islands and beaches that are less frequented by tourists. The islands of Siargao and Bohol offer a variety of great value accommodation. Travellers can choose to stay in local forest guest houses, where Filipino families offer separate rooms for travellers to stay. Alternatively shacks can be found along the beach, where a bargain can always be found and the truly authentic Philippine experience thrown in for free!
2. Eat street
Food is at the heart of Philippine culture and a range of delights can be found at local food market stalls – pick up a plate of seafood cooked in various ways, enough for two people, for under $5! Make sure to try the local favourite Lechon (suckling pig), Halo Halo (a Filipino cold dessert) and Chicken Adobo (marinated meats). Alternatively, make some time to experience a Boodle Fight – a military practice of eating a meal by getting your hands dirty and sampling Filipino favourites including barbequed meats, rice, marinated milk fish, salted eggs, mangoes and more.
3. Happy Hour
Happy Hour in the Philippines is beyond wallet friendly – beers cost less than $2 and rum is cheaper than most soft drinks. You can also pick up a fresh coconut for less than $1 to ensure you stay hydrated on your Filipino adventures.
4. Cheap thrills
Known for its pristine beaches (island hopping is a must) and amazing foods, the Philippines has so much more to offer. Find yourself zig zagging through Bohol’s Chocolate Hills in a buggy starting at just $30, or fly through the extraordinary green forests on Asia’s longest zip-line in the Dahilayan Adventure Park for only $14. Don’t settle for the first price you get, be sure to look around and use your best haggling skills by politely asking for a discount.
5. Prep, Prep, Prep
There’s so many picturesque islands and adventures to have in the Philippines that you’ll be spoilt for choice. The biggest challenge will be fitting everything into to an itinerary and sticking to a budget. Although, thanks to the Cebu Pacific extensive network within the Philippines—the widest in the country, reaching all the island destinations once landing in Manila from Sydney or Melbourne is stress-free and great value.
Adventure can be found anywhere when you have over 7,000 islands to explore, make sure you don’t miss out and book your flights by Sunday (4 August).
