Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.

Traveling home this Christmas Holidays (Sydney to Manila)

hello pinoyau forumers. i've been checking the fare costs for flying this Xmas season as most Australian companies have a holiday shutdown (usually Dec 22 - Jan 2). I'm thinking of going home.

so I tried using cebu pac website directly (Dec 22 - Jan 4) 2493.30 AuD / 94.567.03 PhP ahhh, hell no

then i tried one of the flight aggregators (ie. Momondo). and got 1086.18 AuD / 41192.34 PhP this is a gotogate.com link

parang di kapani-paniwala yung pricing. may nakagamit na ba sa kanila dito? watcha think peeps?

PS -- also used skyscanner 2076 AuD ang best offer nila.

    Google Flights reports around 2k for an economy roundtrip flight to Manila with Qantas.

    Do note that flights can be cheap but they have gotchas like 12-hour layovers in Cairns or something, so looking at pure price isn't everything.
