Soak up the sun with $189 flights to the Philippines

Posted: 21 May 2018 10:21 am

Cebu Pacific is curing your winter blues with this cool happy hour sale, launching 5pm today.

Budget airline Cebu Pacific is helping ease your way into another working week (and into winter) by discounting fares to the sunny Philippines.

Fares start from $189 between Melbourne and Manila and $229 between Sydney and Manila, though you'll have to wait until 5pm tonight to catch them which is when the happy hour starts. It ends at 7pm but if you're busy and miss that window, don't despair as this happy hour sale is running every day from 5-7pm until 24 May.

Those travelling from Melbourne are in for a treat as eligible trips run from August all the way through to March, giving you the scope to hit the nation's beaches during the Aussie winter or to sun your way through the Christmas holidays.

Sydney-siders are a little more restricted with sale flights available from 16 June - 31 August 2018 only.

While these sale flights are for trips to Manila only, Cebu Pacific is well connected further into the Philippines and journeys to popular island destinations such as Palawan, Cebu (pictured), Siargao and more can be tacked onto these fares.

You can keep an eye on the sale and compare flights through Flight Finder here. It all starts at 5pm so set your alarm and keep your peepers peeled to nab the best dates at the very best prices.

How good is this sale?

Cebu is one of a handful of budget airlines that fly into the Philippines with Jetstar and AirAsia also taking Aussies to Manila. However, it is one of the most competitively priced airlines flying this route, at times sporting $119 flights each way.

While this sale doesn't reach such rock-bottom prices, it does offer a wide variety of travel dates including dates in May and November, which are some of the better months to travel. Just remember to avoid June-September travel as this is the wet season so you'll be sitting pretty and dry.
