Last updated: MAY 13, 2020

UPDATE: In line with the government’s extension of the enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila and other parts of the Philippines, Cebu Pacific has also canceled flights scheduled on May 16-31, 2020.

Cebu Pacific has canceled ALL domestic and international flights until May 31, 2020. This is in addition to the cancellation of flights from March 19 to May 15. The move is in line with the government’s extension of Enhanced Community Quarantine covering Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon in an effort to stop the further spread of Covid-19 (coronavirus disease).

To double check, you can see your flight’s status on this page.

If you’re one of the passengers affected, you have three options, all of which can be easily done ONLINE.

  • Rebook the flight for FREE. You can book the flight on another date (outside the affected period). You can only rebook once.
  • Transfer the amount to Travel Fund. Travel Fund is Cebu Pacific’s virtual wallet, where you can temporarily store the amount you paid so you can easily use it again to book another flight. Refund may be requested if unused after one year.
  • Request a refund. You can get a full refund of the amount you paid for. The refund process is easy, but it takes longer for the refund to reflect on your account.

We’ll discuss each in detail below.

One-Time Free Rebooking

If you already have a new target travel date in mind, you can rebook your flight for free. Cebu Pacific has waived the change fees and fare difference for affected passengers. You can only rebook once.

  1. Visit the Cebu Pacific website: www.cebupacificair.com. Click on MANAGE BOOKING.
  2. Enter your flight details: booking code and last name of any passenger. If you have a GetGo account, you can also simply sign in.
  3. On the dashboard, find the flight that you want to change. Click the MANAGE button next to it.
  4. On the next page, you will find four icons. Choose CHANGE FLIGHT.
  5. Choose your preferred new date or flight schedule.
  6. Confirm the changes.

If you have a GetGo account, you can also use the mobile app. Simply log in and see your bookings under MY BOOKINGS.

This infographic summarizes the rebooking process.


Travel Fund

Travel Fund is Cebu Pacific’s virtual wallet, where you can temporarily store the cost of the ticket. By choosing the travel fund, you can easily use the amount when you decide to book another flight with Cebu Pacific.

For example, if my Manila-Hong Kong flight was canceled, I can transfer that amount to my virtual Travel Fund. That means I have virtual “money” kept by the airline. In the future, if I want to book another flight with Cebu Pacific, I could use it to settle the payment for that flight.

Note that the travel tax will not be included in the converted amount at first, but it will be added within 15 days after completing your booking conversion to Travel Fund. Travel taxes are processed separately and entail coordination with other agencies, but it will be added eventually. However, the amount to be transferred excludes insurance add-ons and other service fees, if any.

You can only keep that amount for 180 days, which starts on the day of conversion. But you can use it to pay bookings up to 12 months out. Here’s an example from the CEB website:

Here’s how to use the Travel Fund.

  1. Visit the Cebu Pacific website: www.cebupacificair.com. Click on MANAGE BOOKING.
  2. Enter your flight details: booking code and last name of any passenger. If you have a GetGo account, you can also simply sign in.
  3. On the dashboard, find your flight. Click the MANAGE button next to it.
  4. On the next page, you will find icons. If your flight has been canceled by Cebu Pacific, you will find a TRAVEL FUND option. If your flight isn’t canceled, choose CANCEL FLIGHT.
  5. Enter the information asked on the next page.
  6. Confirm transfer to Travel Fund.

When it’s done, you should receive an email from Cebu Pacific stating that the price of the ticket has been converted into Travel Fund credits.

Here’s a quick infographic summing up the process:

When you decide to use Travel Fund credits to purchase another ticket, simply book a flight on the website or app as you normally would. The difference is: on the PAYMENT page, when asked how you want to pay, choose the TRAVEL FUND option.


Full Refund

The third option is to get a refund of the full cost of the ticket. If you don’t have a new date yet or you don’t think you’d be booking another flight within the next 180 days, then this might be the right choice for you. Here’s how to do it.

  1. Visit the Cebu Pacific website: www.cebupacificair.com. Click on MANAGE BOOKING.
  2. Enter your flight details: booking code and last name of any passenger. If you have a GetGo account, you can also simply sign in.
  3. On the dashboard, find the flight that you want a refund for. Click the MANAGE button next to it.
  4. On the next page, you will find four icons. Choose the one label REQUEST REFUND / CHECK REFUND STATUS.
  5. Choose the passengers for whom you want a refund. You may be asked to enter some details for confirmation.
  6. Confirm the refund request.

Once done, you will see the status of your refund on the dashboard. Initially, it will display RECEIVED. But it can change over time.

If you booked via credit card, the amount will be credited back to your account. It can take weeks for the amount to reflect on your account because a lot of factors are at play here, including your bank’s policies and billing cycle.

IMPORTANT! Processing of refunds will start only after the quarantine period is over and regular work schedules are back to normal. However, due to the unprecedented volume of requests for refunds, the process will take as long as 3-4 billing cycles.

When using the Travel Fund during normal booking, there is no option of TRAVEL FUND on the Payment page…I think the only options are to call CebPac hotline or go to CebPac Ticketing office…

Hello Cebu Pac, when can I receive my refund if I processed the refund request In February 2020?

Nino V.

My refund has not yet reflected on my Debit Account. The refund was process and approved last March 14, this was 2 months ago. I cancelled my flight due to COVID-19 last April. Same situation on Air Asia, refund not yet received.

Anyone there have the same issue?

Warwick Martin

Yes, my flight was cancelled & I requested a refund on March 14th. Still waiting for my debit card to be credited. They said it could take 1 to 2 billing cycles & now they are saying maybe 3 to 4! What I can’t find out is how long is one of their billing cycles. I’ve tried calling them but get no answer. Do you or anyone reading this know the answer?

My March 31 flight was canceled and until now I am waiting for the refund. There is no option to request inside getgo account anymore. I spend more Ethan P500 in load trying to call the support with no luck at all.

Hi! We had a booking for return flights from Bacolod to Davao last April. The lockdown was extended and Cebu Pacific cancelled the flights. We were not able to cancel these using their manage booking site because we could not access the site at the time. And now it is no longer possible to do that. We have tried going to the local Cebu Pacific sales office in Bacolod but they are still closed until now. Is there any other way to get a refund for our bookings?
