I will be visiting my folks back in Iloilo next week so while scouring the websites of several domestic airlines for a cheap airplane ticket, I got frustrated with the way they handled online booking and went back to the traditional way of ticket reservation.
I ended up taking a PAL flight as they got better departure times than Cebu Pacific or Air Philippines (though Air Phils is already under PAL right?)
Anyway, while waiting in line, I got a brochure for one of their PALakbayan promos. For as low as Php5,350, you can get a round trip from Manila to Iloilo with 2 nights twin accomodation at one fo the standard hotels in the city. The promo includes Manila-Iloilo-Manila route by Philippine Airlines (Fiesta Class airfare), airport-hotel-airport transfers, and daily breakfast. Extra nights are charged Php510 each for twin beds.
The regular round trip ticket that I got cost me Php4,920 so this PALakbayan promo is quite cheap, but I’m off to Guimaras the whole time so I wouldn’t need the hotel accomodations.
Promo ends March 31, 2006.
More stories about Iloilo and Guimaras when I get back from the trip.
