    EXCESS BAGGAGE CHARGES of Cebu Pacific

    Cebu Pacific have implemented their strict and overcharging rates of the passengers' excess baggage and at the same time reduced the baggage allowance from 20 to 15 kilograms per passenger last year.

    They are charging 100 pesos per kilo to any domestic destination and much much more on their international routes. I find it very very unreasonable. Based on my experience from PAL, their rates vary depending on the distance of your destination. It's somewhere between 25 to 50 pesos per kilo, which I think is fair enough. Alangan naman you'll be paying the same price if you travel from Manila to Cebu and Manila to Davao, di ba? It's for their convenience na madali lang ang computation at the passengers' expense!

    Being in the public transportation sector, I think the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), formerly the Air Transportation Office (ATO), must regulate the rates, similar to the LTFRB regulates the fares of the public utility vehicles.

    Nakakamura ka nga sa fare, pukpukin ka naman nila sa excess baggage mo.

    What are your sentiments on this matter guys?

    Pal and Cebu Pacific are not the same company.

    There is no known regulation about this matter and as a matter of fact, people like us have been complaining about the issue.

    This not only teach us to pack light but to have patience. I hope the fees will disappear as the worldwide economy picks up.

    I agree, the Cebu Pacific excess baggage charges (especially on international flights!) are OVERpriced! Obviously, most of the people flying with them are on a budget (or else they would've booked with other, better, full-service airlines, right?) and whatnot...why those ridiculous charges? While I find it reasonable that their free baggage allowance is now only 15kg/person, I completely disagree that one kilo of excess is worth P400/500. That's quite ridiculous.

    Yes the P100/kilo excess on local flight is ridiculous kasi kung magpadala ka ng package sa mga freight & handling companies they will charge only P40/kilo more or less and knowing na sa mga airlines din naman nila ipadala ang package hindi naman sa barko.

    I totally agree with this. iPaship ng nalang yung pinamili nyo

    mura nga titirahin ka naman nila sa taxes and excess charges. next time, mag PAL na lang ako.

    it;s for light travellers, no doubt. if light travelling is now your style, then it's best not to use cebu pacific.

    Did you know that you can purchase prepaid excess baggage when you book online for CebuPacific?

    For domestic trips, the charge is PhP400 (incl. VAT) for every 5kg increments per way.

    To save more, you can send your items through domestic couriers like 2Go, LBC, Air21. At 2Go, a 20kg box costs from PhP565.

    ^ Are there cheap options like this for international travel? I'm planning to go shopping in Bangkok and I'm not sure how I'll be able to bring everything back without having to spend TOO much for excess baggage...

    Probably you can look for Filipino "balikbayan box" companies in Bangkok.

    Sa Singapore maraming ganyan, nagamit ko na rin once at maraming mga sizes at mas mura sa excess baggage charges ng Singapore Airlines.

    Most balikbayan boxes are send via sea freight so expect probably one to two weeks for delivery.

    i guess the passenger airlines now are literally for passengers only with carry-on baggage.. if you have excess baggage which they define as cargo, you have to send it through cargo airliners.. ndi bah fair yun? lolz
