AirAsia Red Hot Sale: How I Booked a Flight for only Php 17!

Air-Asia-Red-Hot-Sale

Air Asia’s #RedHotSale has been the “talk of the town” among my family and relatives. 🙂 Even my friends are tagging me on Facebook to share this exciting news with me. And I’ve received private messages from at least 3 of my cousins asking me if I could book a flight for them for our Barangay Fiesta in the province next year (which I don’t mind, not at all! :))

Actually, I first saw the same Air Asia Promo yesterday while I was browsing through my news feeds on Facebook. In fact, I got so excited so I hurriedly checked it out to see if it was indeed a “Red Hot Sale”.

And well, yeah it is, but not as cheap as everyone thinks it would be for a flight to Tacloban on May of 2016.

Here’s why…

Air-Asia-Manila-Tacloban-Flight

If I book a return flight from Manila to Tacloban on May 12, 2016 and May 20, 2016, the lowest price that I will get is P1,299, inclusive of:

  • Fare (P1,144.82)
  • Aviation Security (P15)
  • VAT (P139.18)

This is the ALL-IN-fare for a one-way flight. For a return flight, the total fare would be P2,598. And this is assuming that I have NO checked baggage, NO Travel Insurance, and NO Add-ons.

ADD-ON RATES:

Checked Baggage

  • Up to 15kg – P170
  • Up to 20kg – P280
  • Up to 25kg – P580
  • Up to 30kg – P900
  • Up to 40kg – P1,700

Inflight Meal

  • From as low as P100

Pick A Seat

  • From as low as P126

Inflight Comfort

  • From as low as P430

AirAsia Insure Travel Protection

  • P200 (one way)
  • P300 (two-way)

 

The total payment due will depend on the Payment Method:

Internet Banking (Direct debit) using Dragonpay

  • Processing fee – P0
  • Total Amount due = P2,598.00

(Processing fee applies depending on the amount)

Credit Card / Debit Card

  • Processing fee – P268.80
  • Total Amount due = P2,866.80

(This fee is chargeable per guest for each way when payment is made ONLINE through credit card, debit card or charge card only.)

Payment Partners (Cebuana Lhuiller, Bayad Center, Robinsons Department Store, ecPay, and 7-Eleven)

  • Processing fee – P134.40
  • Total Amount due = P2,732.40

(This fee is chargeable per guest per booking for this payment method.)

 

And again, that’s if we chose these dates – May 12 for Manila to Tacloban flight and May 20 for Tacloban to Manila flight. Please note that these rates are available as of 11PM today, November 24, 2013.

By the way, our Fiesta is on May 14-15, but our vacation in the province usually takes 8-10 days. And those are the usual dates of our travel. 🙂

 

But wait, here’s more!!!

This is the most exciting part of this post! 🙂
