Put these airfares under the Christmas tree this year.

Your next trip is a no-brainer thanks to Cebu Pacific. Enjoy the crystal clear waters of Boracay or wander the streets of Manila with flights to the Philippines, starting from $282 return (yes, you read that right).

The budget carrier has dropped fares to an advertised $159 each way from Melbourne and $189 each way from Sydney, but we found even cheaper prices when booking return tickets.

You can fly direct from Melbourne to Manila starting from $282 and Sydney to Manila from $308 return.

Other flights to Manila include Perth starting from $403, Brisbane from $525 and Adelaide from $484 return. Do keep in mind some of these flights will fly with other low-cost airlines.

Enjoy the best of the Philippines with travel dates ranging from January to May 2020, which happens to be the country's dry season. Specific dates do apply depending on your chosen flight.

This one doesn't need a lot of convincing, so head to Skyscanner to lock in your next holiday.

You'll have to jump on these fares quickly as this sale ends midnight 12 December 2019 unless sold out prior.

How good are these fares?

  • Price: Great. These prices are saving you those extra dollars. You can expect to pay around $850 for a full-price fare and under $700 for a good deal. This Cebu Pacific offer means you could save up to a quarter off the typical price.
  • Airline: Good. Cebu Pacific is a low-cost airline. This means that your airfares don't include checked baggage, in-flight meals or entertainment, but these can be added for an extra fee.
  • Travel time: Great. Get to the Philippines faster with direct flights from Sydney and Melbourne.
  • Weather: Great. We recommend travelling between January and April as this is when the rain is minimal and temperatures are warm. Booking the Philippines during early May means you'll avoid the peak tourist season.
