(Inside Manila) Don't be skeptical, piso fares are real. They are low-cost and definitely genius promos created by local airlines. Before you make true those #travelgoals by yourself or with the squad, first be knowledgeable of these facts about piso fares. Check them out!

1. It's not exactly 'piso'

If you still haven't noticed, this totally affordable promo is both real and unreal in a way.

Piso fares apply only to the base fare cost of the ticket. This base fare can go as low as P1 or even at zero! However, other travel charges like government taxes will still be applied. Regardless, these promos could save you off the total fee.

2. You can't use it immediately

Unlike regular flights wherein a passenger can book and fly on their preferred time and day, piso fare flights differ. On these kinds of promo, the airline gives the travel date. Usually, it takes 10 months up to 1 year before any bought piso-fare seat can be used.

3. Expect a huge traffic on airlines' website every after piso-fare announcement

Airline websites can get very slow or worse, fall short after their announcement of seat sales.

Unfortunately, there's not much to be done about this but to patiently wait. The system can go back to normal after a few hours, however, many seats and promos are probably already sold.

4. The number of seats available is limited

Piso fare seats to popular destinations can be tricky to avail, as these locations usually have limited seats.

Don't be disheartened, some airlines don't announce all of their available seats immediately. Be patient. Frequently check their website as seats may suddenly be open.

5. Be patient but act fast when opportunity strikes!

Piso fare promos are effective customer-magnet strategy. With the airlines' slow system during this sale, and thousand other Filipinos who want to avail it as much as you do, you need to act quickly and precisely when you get the chance.
