Cheap flights to Manila

The ultimate megacity, Manila is a chaotic mix of towering skyscrapers and expansive shanty towns. The roads hum with constant traffic and activity but, somehow, this giant city not only survives, it thrives. It truly is the ‘Pearl of the Orient’.

When to book flights to Manila

The Philippines are most popular during the dry season, between April and November. This is a great time to visit if you want to try and see some of the more remote areas of the country. But if you’re just sticking to Manila and the vicinity, you can travel at any time of year.

The cooler months are perhaps more comfortable in a city of Manila’s size. These fall between December to February. And the wet season is between May and October. Although you’ll still enjoy hot sunny days at this time of year, as well as smaller crowds and lush green scenery.

As always, flights tend to be more expensive during the high tourism season, so go off peak for the best chance of finding cheap tickets to Manila.

But even if you’re going at short notice, there are still some tricks you can use to find great deals.

Using Expedia, you can choose to see flexible dates for flights and this will broaden your chances. Some days of the week are more popular for travel than others, so even an adjustment of 24 hours could save you money.

How to survive the flight to Manila?
Wherever you’re coming from, flying can be an enjoyable experience if you’ve prepared well. We’ve put together a list of handy travel tips that will get your Manila holiday started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • First and foremost, pack your passport, travel docs, wallet and vital medications. Next, you’ll need some entertainment to help pass the time. A thrilling novel and a tablet crammed with your favourite movies are some fantastic options. If you plan to take a short snooze, a neck pillow and a pair of noise-cancelling headphones will also come in handy. Finally, squeeze in a toothbrush and some cleansing wipes to ensure you hop off the plane feeling fresh and raring to go.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Put all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner in your checked luggage. Any gels or liquids in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated. Sharp or pointed objects, like a pocket knife, and products which are flammable or explosive, such as spray paint, flares and matches, are also prohibited.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The long, narrow aisles of a plane are not the place for a fashion parade. Layer up with comfy clothing and remember to take a sweater as it tends to get cool inside the cabin during long-haul flights. Closed-toed, flat shoes are also recommended.
  • The result of sustained periods of inactivity, DVT (deep vein thrombosis) is a serious condition that can affect some passengers during long flights. The great news is there are proven ways to reduce your risk of developing it. Stay well hydrated, get up and walk around the cabin as often as possible and wear compression socks to help improve your circulation.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Manila?
The secret is to be well organised before you reach the security gate. That way, you’ll be boarding that plane to Manila in the blink of an eye. Follow these helpful tips and get your trip off to a spectacular start:

  • Security personnel first need to see that you have a valid ID and travel documents before you can proceed any further. Have them ready to show.
  • Your jacket, belt, keys and other small items, like your headphones, will need to go on a tray through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process faster by removing them before your turn arrives.
  • All your electronic gadgets, including your phone and laptop, are also required to be scanned.
  • Remove all liquids and gels from your carry-on bag. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray separately. Each item should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a quart-size (one litre), clear zip-close bag.
  • Lightweight sneakers are a sensible footwear choice as you’re less likely to be asked to remove them when passing through security. Boots and other bulky shoes are usually subjected to extra screening.
  • Airlines won’t allow any pocket knives or other sharp items in your hand luggage. If you must bring these kinds of items, pack them safely in your checked luggage.
