I woke up late last Friday so when I saw the PHP1 Sale of Cebu Pacific I knew that I have a slim chance of getting a seat sale but it did not stop me from trying. So I checked the possible dates that we can travel, it is not easy to book because I have to consider my hubby’s vacation leave and my son’s school activities.
I was having a hard time checking the available date for Piso Sale because of the slow connection and slow Cebu Pacific site. It seems that the whole Philippines are trying to book their own flight so I stopped trying.
After dinner, I tried again and book Manila to Macau but I was getting an error via credit card payment so I chose BDO payment but I was shocked when I read this.
"You have until tonight, 23:59H PH Time to pay for your booking through various payment centers."
It’s past 8PM so all BDO branches are already closed so how can I pay? I’ve sent FB message to my sister-in-law informing her that she needs to pay their booking within the day, not within 24hrs.
I have no idea when Cebu Pacific changed the procedure but last year I chose BDO payment too and they gave me 24hrs to pay my due. Before 12AM, I checked my message and my sister-in-law replied that my brother was able to pay through BDO Online Payment.
I thought I need to enroll Cebu Pacific first before I can pay it online. I texted and called my brother but no answer so I searched the net for some information. Finally, I was able to get some answer but it was past 12AM, my booking is still on hold status, I called Cebu Pacific if I can still pay my booking even it is past 23:59H but the customer service rep told me that my booking is already forfeited.
I was really sad because our Manila to Macau flight is only PHP1548 for 3 pax so it is really a steal. Anyway, at least I learned something new, just in case my credit card failed me again. If you have no credit card, you can still book a flight using other options and one of these options is internet banking.
