3. *Baggage prices at the airport.
Assumption is you show up at the airport for your flight without prepaid bag allowance. Then the Cebu Pacific staff informs you that the bag or luggage you brought must be check-in. You will pay what is called the “AIRPORT BAGGAGE” fee of P1,000 for a maximum weight of 20 kilos.
RATES COMPARISON: 20 kilos package if bought during initial booking will only cost P380.80. 20 kilos package bought at the airport check-in counter is P1,000. The price difference is P619.20. Ouch. Ang mahal ng baggage pag nasa sa airport counter ka na!
If wala kang prepaid baggage allowance at may kailangan kang icheck-in kahit one kilo lang eto ay kailangan kang magbayad ng P1,000 sa airport counter staff ng Cebu Pacific airline. Kaya at Piso Sale we strongly advise to avail of prepaid baggage if you believe lalagpas ka sa 7 kilos of free handcarry bag allowance. Or if may bagahe ka na not allowed ilagay sa hand-carry, example: tools of the trade like bolt cutter, knife, long umbrella, etc.
Baggage can be added to the booking up until 4 hours before the flight schedule.

HOW MUCH IS THE EXCESS BAGGAGE AT CEBU PACIFIC?
This 2019, the excess baggage rate per kilo is P250 for domestic and short-haul flights. So if you availed of prepaid baggage but sumobra pa din sa timbang, P250 per kilo agad-agad ang charge.
Example natin ay ganito – you already have prepaid baggage allowance of 20 kilos. Nung nag check-in ka abay ang timbang ng bagahe mo ay 23 kilos pala. Magbabayad ka ngayon ng additional na P750. 3 kilos x P250/kilo = P750
If there are changes to the prices of the prepaid baggage-packages for domestic and short-haul flights, we will try our best to update this post as soon as possible.
*Long haul flights like going to Dubai, Melbourne, Sydney has a different pricing.
All passengers are given free hand-carry bag allowance set at 7 kilos. Any excess hand carry will be subjected to a fee if intercepted at the boarding gate.
Totoo po eto, we have seen passengers na hinarang pasakay na ng eroplano para kilohin ang dala-dalang bagahe. Pag napatunayan na mas mabigat sa 7 kilos ang hand-carry, pinagbabayad ang pasahero. Strikto na po ngayon ang mga airlines.
Allowed handcarry is a backpack or small suitcase plus additional one small bag like a lady’s shoulder bag, belt-bag, shopping bag, etc. Laptop bags with laptop inside are usually exempted from weigh-check and must be brought inside the cabin. Bawal ang laptop na ilagay sa check-in baggage.
A passenger who already availed of a prepaid baggage is allowed to UPGRADE the package to a higher level. This way if you originally bought a 20 kilos prepaid-baggage but you realize that you need 40 kilos, you can upgrade via Manage Booking and pay the price difference.
We will be publishing an article to show our readers how to add baggage to an existing booking via the Manage Booking feature. Add baggage may also be done via any of Cebu Pac’s ticketing office or by calling their hotline.
It’s best to weigh your baggage at the free weighing station in the airport before you proceed to the check-in counter so you know where you stand.
