How to Book Online Thru PAL ( Philippine Airlines ) and My Experience
Here are some information on how to make online booking using Philippine Airlines , It is easy to book online in Philippine Airlines you just to get the following information before starting. I am sharing this information just in case there are readers of this blog who have not yet tried doing an Online Booking using PAL. And to those people who are afraid to use their credit cards online.
What Do I need to Book Online
Here are the needed information in Booking Online thru PAL.
- Complete information of the passenger ( Email, Phone number, etc, age, birthday )
- Credit Card
- Mabuhay Miles Number
- Internet Connection
If you have the above information you may proceed to Philippine Airline Home Page and fill up the below shown details
And then you can get the details by pressing Search, You may choose the lowest fare which depends on time of departure and time of arrival. Usually if you will take the earliest time it will be the cheapest fare.
You better choose Econolight Fares if you are on Budget. but you better do the online booking / reservation months before the flight in order to get the Econolight Fares
Warning in Booking Online Thru PAL ( Philippine Airlines )
You need to check your e-mail just after you make your online booking, sometimes it shows error in their system after paying but when you check your email they have already sent you the booking confirmation. It happens to me , I thought the transaction was not successful and it is late to know that my card has been charged and booking has been confirmed. It will be next to impossible to refund the money that was charged to your credit card their system is slow when checking this kind of claim specially when you are out of Philippines. So better be very careful so not to be double charge.
Observation and Suggestion
Great that i was informed about 2 weeks before my flight that the booking has been adjusted. So better put the e-mail that you frequently use to be informed in any changes that PAL may implement. if you are using Citibank , You could also choose to make the Paylite Option of Citibank for Travelers. The best thing is we don’t need to have a booking agent fee in doing online booking.
Other suggestion if you want to save on your travel is to check first the Hotel Booking Rate and compare different options on how you could save. This is a tech blog but usually i am converting this blog as a Travel Blog while on Vacation. By the way it is also a way of doing SEO for places that i visited just for information.
