Explore the Philippines’ 7,000 islands from $230 return

Posted: 3 July 2018 2:39 pm

Taking off from four Aussie cities with all flights under $470.

It’s true, the Philippines has over 7,000 islands for you to visit and there's more than just beautiful beaches for you to explore. On one trip you could easily climb a volcano, spot tarsiers in the Chocolate Hills, indulge in mangoes fit for a queen, eat at a restaurant in a waterfall and float through an underground river.

Put yourself in the middle of it all from just $230 return with these Cebu Pacific and Scoot flights.

The cheapest flights depart from Melbourne on Cebu Pacific but you can also find fares from around Australia for under $470 return.

Sample fares include flights to Manila from Perth for $367, from Sydney for $418 and from Gold Coast from $463.

Travel dates are from August to September for the Perth and Gold Coast departures and November to December for Sydney and Melbourne.

All flights are to Manila so to visit hotspots like Boracay, Palawan or Cebu, cheap domestic flights can be booked with Cebu Pacific or AirAsia.

Flights are on sale only until they are sold out. Catch yours now with Flights Finder.

How good are these fares?

  • Price: Great. The cheapest fares we found recently was for one-way flights between Sydney and Manila for $119 or $225 return from Melbourne so you’re paying some of the lowest fares we’ve seen.
  • Airline: Fair. Both Cebu Pacific and Scoot are budget airlines so checked bags and in-flight meals are extra.
  • Travel time: Good. Flights from Sydney and Melbourne are direct to and from Manila and flights from Perth and the Gold Coast involve layovers in Singapore.
  • Weather: OK. We’re not going to lie, if you’re flying from Perth or the Gold Coast then the travel dates are right smack in the middle of monsoon season. Sydney and Melbourne dates are certainly more attractive and if you can grab some November dates then you’ll be visiting during one of the best months for Philippine travel.
