Frequently Asked Questions about Cebu Pacific Baggage Fee

How much is excess kilo in Cebu Pacific?

In excess of the first 20 kilograms, which is paid either prepaid or at the airport, the Excess Baggage Rate (EBR) per kilogram is P250 for domestic flights and P550 or USD10-15 per kilogram for international flights except Australia and Dubai.
For travel to Dubai or Australia, the Excess Baggage Rate is P1200 or AUD$45 or AED100 per kilogram.

Can one pay at the airport for excess baggage for Cebu Pacific?

If the checked baggage exceeds the Prepaid Baggage Allowance purchased for the flight, the passenger will be charged an excess baggage fee. Excess baggage is priced according to weight (kilograms) when checking in at the airport.

How much baggage in kilograms is allowed by Cebu Pacific?

Cebu Pacific Prepaid Baggage offers 20 kg and 32 kg options to choose from when deciding how much luggage to bring. You’re allowed up to two pieces of baggage as long as the combined weight does not exceed 64kg.

How can I avoid excess Cebu Pacific baggage fees?

Below are a few tips to avoid excess baggage fees:
– Prepay for additional weight. You’ll save money, in the long run, this way.
– Combine your luggage with someone you’re traveling with.
– Opt for lightweight options when possible so that you can pack more without paying extra fees.
– Become familiar with the maximum size and weight limits for carry-on bags before packing.

Do they weigh carry-on or hand-carry luggage in Cebu Pacific?

Yes, occasionally. Sometimes, check-in agents will weigh your carry-on luggage if the flight is full. They’ll put a tag on it if they think it’s over the weight limit. Usually, though, they can tell by how you’re carrying it whether or not it weighs more than 7 kgs.

Which is cheaper – paying for extra baggage online or at the airport?

If you’re worried that your luggage will surpass the specified limit, order more weight ahead of time, usually during booking. Sure, it’s an additional expense, but it’s usually far less expensive to pay for it online than at the airport. This can assist you in check-in and reduce stress.
