Travel & flight hacking

10 most effective travel & flight hacks for Philippines

  1. Use local airlines instead of ferries. The Philippines is an archipelago so you may spend long hours (or days) moving between provinces by land and sea. Also, the Philippines’ inter-island ferry and passenger boat network is infamous for its poor safety record. It's wise to consider domestic air travel to avoid overcrowded boats and long journeys. Book your flights well in advance to secure some amazing deals.
  2. Fly early morning. Early morning domestic flights (6 am or earlier) are usually cheaper compared to other schedules of the day. It's because of lower demand – most people are not willing to go to the airport so early. Use it to your advantage.
  3. Avoid the last flight connection of the day. Even in the post-pandemic world sudden flight cancellations may still take place. When flying domestically, try not to book the last flight out of your connecting airport. In case of a cancellation, the airline will obviously put you on its next flight, but it will require an overnight stay and arrival a day later.
  4. Avoid Philippines' public holidays. Prices skyrocket during holidays – adjust your travel dates to avoid expensive tickets. Cheap flights to the Philippines are non-existent during popular “red days” such as New Years Day, Chinese New Year, Holy Week, and Christmas. If you really have to travel to the Philippines during these peak periods it's wise to book the flights well in advance.
  5. Find the best economy seats. Contrary to the popular view, not all economy seats on a plane are created equal. Some seats have slight advantages over others. It all depends on the aircraft, so we recommend visiting the SeatGuru website, where after entering your flight number you will be presented with a detailed seat map. Hover over individual seats to compare quality, and check out other travelers’ reviews.
  6. Book a seat in a quiet zone. Some airlines (for example AirAsia X) start to offer child-free "quiet zones" for a peaceful flight experience. Children below 10 years old are not allowed in this section. Those seats are usually located in front of the plane (bonus: less noise from the engines) with soft ambient lighting and early meal service.
  7. Watch for a good sale. Most airlines publish their web promotions frequently. To get a great bargain be sure to watch the airline sales over the course of several weeks.
  8. Join Air Traveler Club. A proven way to get great prices on flights to the Philippines is to become a member of Air Traveler Club. It is free to join, and deals that the members get every week are priced at least 40% below the average airfare for a given route. Some of these 'hacker fares' can save you up to 80% (!) on your next flight.
  9. Lost baggage prevention. Avoid lost luggage nightmares by removing old tags on your suitcases. Tags are printed with a barcode which is used for identification and tracking – so the old tags can really confuse baggage handlers and the conveyor belt scanners. They are one of the reasons so many bags miss their flight or get misrouted.
  10. DM instead of the call center. Use Twitter or Facebook Messenger to contact the airline customer service. If the problem arises, social media is usually a faster way to contact a real human that can answer your questions. Don't count too much on airline call centers, they are usually super busy.
