Have you ever wanted to experience the convenience of booking tickets and paying online from the comfort of your home or office, but cannot simply because you don’t have a credit card? If that’s the case, then the Cebu Pacific’s (CEB) payment centers are your answer.

This latest CEB offering means you can now book a flight to any of the airline’s 32 domestic and 14 international destinations with just a click of the mouse and a little trip to any of CEB’s many payment centers.

The process is simple: First, book your preferred flight schedules to your chosen destinations online via www.cebupacificair.com.

When you reach the payment page, choose from any of the possible payment centers, which include Robinsons Bank, Banco de Oro, Metrobank and other Bancnet and Megalink members. You can also book by calling CEB’s reservation hotlines at (02) 7020-888 or (032) 230-888.

Next, the Web site or the call center agent will give you a 14-digit reference number and the total amount to be paid. You can then pay this at the payment center nearest you on the same day of your booking, present your 14-digit reference number, and get the transaction number issued by the payment center.

Your confirmed itinerary will then be sent to your e-mail address or mobile phone number the next day.

"Payment centers are very convenient and accessible since some of them are 24/7. Our passengers can now pay via ATM or through phone or Internet banking. Even without a bank account, they can also pay cash for their booking over the counter at Robinsons Bank, Metrobank or Banco de Oro," said CEB vice president for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog.

"The complete list of partner banks and payment centers are available on our Web site. Now that it’s a lot easier to book and pay for flights, we hope more passengers will be encouraged to travel more often, especially with our trademark low fares," she added.

CEB’s other products and services can also be paid for through the payment centers: Prepaid excess baggage, preferred seat selection, sports equipment luggage option, Go Lite fares, fun tours and TravelSure insurance. All these choices and more are featured in the airline’s Web site.

With all these options, the most number of domestic destinations and routes and the youngest fleet in the Philippines, CEB has certainly gone the extra mile to fulfill every Juan’s travel needs.
