The national office advises the attendees to book their flights as early possible because prices increase as the date of the flight approaches. Ticket prices (one way) from ports across the country range from P2,200 to P3,800 (rounded figures), if flight is booked on April 7 and departure date is May 12. You can check out trips under AirPhil, but prices are generally lower in Cebu Pacific.

Sea travel
For those who prefer travelling by this mode of transportation, please take note that 2GO Travel Agency only offers trips from Manila to Puerto Princesa (no trips from other ports to Puerto Princesa). For instance, if you’re coming from Batangas port, there are no routes to Palawan. You will have to travel to Manila to board a vessel and trip schedules are not as regular as that of air travel agencies. In Manila, trips are scheduled in an interval of at least a week. Each trip lasts for two days.

However, ticket prices are much lower in sea travel, as each trip costs P1,201 (super value class) per head. Schedules for the month of May have yet to be posted in the 2GO website.
