ABOUT CEBU PACIFIC’S GO LITE FARES:
1. What is Go Lite?
– This is the discounted fare offered to Cebu Pacific guests that have no check-in luggage at time of booking.
2. Why is Cebu Pacific offering a different fare that is, Go Lite for guests with no check-in luggage?
Cebu Pacific believes that you should only pay for the services that you need. Before, the cost of check-in luggage was included in every fare. Guests with no checked luggage were paying for guests with checked luggage. Now, guests with no check-in luggage can save on fares.vThe fewer the luggage, the lighter the plane, the lesser fuel to burn. And that means, more savings for you.
3. How much is the discount for Go Lite?
– Go Lite is PhP100 lower than Go fare per sector.
4. When did this policy take effect?
– Bookings starting August 12, 2009.
5. How does this work?
– At time of booking, guests without checked baggage may avail of Go Lite instead of Go Fare. What this means is that guests will not be bringing checked baggage along on the flight. They may, however, have a carry-on (hand carry) bag – just make sure it weighs 7kgs or less.
7. How come only Cebu Pacific has this kind of policy?
– Actually low cost airlines in the US and Europe already offer something similar. This is Cebu Pacific’s way of making you save more by paying only for the service you use.
8. What if I avail of Go Lite and later decide to have checked luggage on the day of the flight?
