Sorry for the down-time kanina, I've sorted it out, everything should be back to normal.
Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.

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 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.
