Top tips for finding cheap flights to the Philippines

  • Book at least 1 week before departure in order to get a below-average price for flights to the Philippines.
  • High season is considered to be January, November and December. The cheapest month to fly from the United Kingdom is May.
  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Philippines flight deals.
  • You can find cheap flights to the Philippines by using the filters on KAYAK. You can choose your departure airport and easily find the lower cost flights from there to the Philippines. You can then choose the most cost-effective airline on this route.
  • When you find cheap flights to the Philippines, consider hiring a car at the same time, so that you'll have the freedom to explore on your own, without having to rely on public transport locations and schedules. It's also likely to be more cost-effective than taking taxis, particularly to and from minor cities.
  • If you're looking for budget flights to the Philippines, Wizz Air is the best choice, leaving from a number of British airports. A good bet is the one that leaves from London Gatwick (LGW) bound for Manila Airport. You'll stop at Budapest Ferenc Liszt International (BUD) and then Dubai International (DBX), where you'll switch to Cebu Pacific.
  • The Philippines has a number of international airports that serve as hubs for onward connections to other islands. The main hub is Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) and from here you can explore the northern islands. Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB) is in the centre of the Philippines, which provides good connections for north and south, while Davao International Airport (DVO) in the south is a hub to fly into if you would like to explore the south of the country.
  • Visitors wanting to spend time at the beach or do some diving in the Philippines should consider flying from UK to Cebu, which is located in the centre of the archipelago and will give you access to various beach destinations, such as Mactan Island, where Cebu airport is situated, and Pangloa – a small island just a ferry ride or a short plane hop away from Cebu.
  • If you are looking at flights to Philippines so you can visit Puerto Princesa Subterranean River located on Palawan, you should consider flying to Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport and then booking an onward flight to Puerto Princesa International Airport (PPS). The flight takes around 1h 25min and the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River is approximately a 46 mi drive from the airport.
  • British passport holders are able to enter the Philippines for 30 days without a visa. For those staying as a visitor for longer than 30 days and up to 59 days, you will need to organise a visa from the Philippine Embassy. Your passport should be valid for the duration of the time you intend to spend in the Philippines.
  • Local currency can be purchased at foreign exchange counters in airports, hotels and some banks using cash in Pounds Sterling or US Dollars. Traveller’s cheques are rarely accepted and sometimes ATMs will accept international debit or credit cards. It should be noted that as you can only bring up to 50,000 PHP (approximately 736 GBP) into the Philippines in cash, you should arrange to buy your currency when you arrive at the airport.

Cons: "The seat pitch is getting tight."
Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"

Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing to like on that flight."
Cons: "Very poor customer service, Qatar Airways should be ashamed of providing worst than third world kind service in the Doha - Dhaka route."

Cons: "The check in at Denpasar is horrible. The airport services are very inefficient."
Cons: "DOHA to NY. I board the plane to find out that Qatar SWITCHED SEATS ON ME that I selected months ago without any notice at all! Got stuck in middle seat on the wing! I emailed Qatar you know what they said? "Seat assignments can never guarantee." No voucher or anything offered! Fly something else!!"
Pros: "The food was OK, but not really as good as what we had received on other airlines. Example, on one flight I had a fish dish which was overcooked very dry and there was no sauce of any kind to make it palatable. I do not like to throw food away but half way into the meal I had enough. Other than that Qatar Airlines was really first class. The flight attendants were the best we have ever experienced. Their dress was immaculate, they were very friendly and attentive and were there to make the flight as comfortable as possible plus cater to all requests."
Cons: "The food which was generally very bland and without any taste. Sauces with some of the dishes would be helpful."

Pros: "Very disappointed in the service provided"
Cons: "Contact the customer for flight changes instead of doing it automatically for the customer. I woke up to text messages letting me know my flight was changed from 0635 to 2135. I had major plans for the next few days and couldn’t afford to take that risk."
Pros: "The dinner was one of the top two I've ever had on a plane and I've flown business class around the world."
Cons: "I just don't fit comfortably into the pods and for a 14 hour flight that's a pain in the neck or lower. The seatbelts must be adjustable to allow a pod user to roll on his side."
Pros: "Lie-flat seat in usiness class in the most comfortable seat I have ever sat in—on or off a plane. Cathay service is remarkably good and caring, but not intrusive."
Cons: "Dinner entrees not as good as last Flights with Cathay, but dim sum for breakfast was excellent."
Pros: "The food was okay which is much better than the outbound flight."
Cons: "The seat is quite narrow but it's okay for me. However, I do think bigger people might have problems with it."
Cons: "Flight was suspended I was not notified before I went to the airport"
Cons: "The seat was a bit small for me, legroom a bit tight."

Nothing was good. Everything needs to improve. Everything was abysmal. Needs lots of improvement. The check-in and baggage drop at the New Delhi airport was manned by disrespectful people, horrible experience. We will never travel by Etihad ever again.

Pros: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19"
Cons: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19...still waiting for refund ??"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Food came in a paper bag but still was good and plenty. The plane was an Airbus-330, it's a smaller plane for shorter routes but the seats were actually more comfortable than the newest Boeing 787-9 they use for long hauls."
Cons: "Don't bus the passengers to the plane and make them climb the stairs. It's almost 2020."
Pros: "the headrests in the AUH-MAD leg"
Cons: "the touchscreen inflight system didn’t work very well in the MNL-AUH leg of the trip"
Pros: "Efficient airline, friendly staff."
Cons: "Can't blame the airline but getting through terminals is time consuming in Abu Dhabi. Seats are small and hard but I felt excellent value for money."
Cons: "More cabin staff only 3 attendants for a packed flight Long wait for another plane to land so people could get on Late landing Generally uncomfortable due to full plane and inconsiderate people May not use again"
Pros: "Cleanness + Friendly"
Cons: "Plane is little far way from terminals compare to Emirates flights"
Pros: "I liked my seat and the food"
Cons: "I did not like the cleanliness of the bathroom I did not like their entertainment I did not like that the flight attendants were bickering at each other not professional at all"
Pros: "Nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I requested for a aisle seat as I was travelling with 2 yrs old but they put me in the middle with other two people on th side . Very horrible ."
Pros: "Legroom Entertainment Airport onboarding exp"
Cons: "- horrible crew, many crew members were just rude to many passengers. Often rolling their eye and making overt gestures to passenger questions - one crew member just threw the food tray down and it all spilled over another passenger - they also struggle with english and so is hard understanding both ways - abslote the worst food selection and quality in my experience. Better pack your own food from home"
Pros: "I love having a legrest! Food was good, staff pleasant!"
Cons: "A little hard to hear the movie, music playing on the plane competed with the movie audio."
Pros: "Hi, We had experienced a huge delay (over 8hrs) from JFK & transit in Kuwait was horrible. Staffs in transit are horrific & not at all care takers. We stayed over 18hrs in airport due to poor flight management. Staff didn't even provided hotels for accommodation."
Cons: "Customer care & poor management"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was injured and unable to fly. I spent over an hour on hold trying to adjust my flight and never spoke to a rep. I emailed customer service in the US and at the airline’s point of origin. Yeh up have still not responded. Poor poor form."
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful. Plane was well taken care of, and food was a pleasent surprise."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour and a half waiting on passengers and baggage"
Pros: "I will give a second thought to travel again in such flight"
Cons: "There is no place of display of international time, transfer flights assistance is poor and rude behavior of attending staff"
Pros: "from Kuwait to Dhaka flight was not good enough overall..."
Cons: "we need better service..."
Pros: "Entertainment available as soon as you were seated and until you got up to leave. You did not have to wait to get to 10,000 feet and it did not stop prior to landing. Choice of meals on the flight was great. Seats were comfortable."
Pros: "We landed safely."
Cons: "Seat uncomfortable, very late departure, mediocre food, flight attendants need better training"
Pros: "The sitting arrangement was good."
Cons: "My son already mentioned that we are vegetarian people when he booked the ticket. Still during our flight the crew said we don't have veg food, only option is non-veg. When I clearly denied to have a non-veg food and some other people also explained them that most of Indian people food habit and culture, finally the staff ready for give the Veg food to me and my wife. We got the food but it took lots of time and cold, no test as well. Is it really good behaviour to customer?? We are senior citizen, we need water for our medicine, I have to asked 3 times then they give me only one time.. Such a annoying and awful experience during this journey. I won't recommend Kuwait airways to my family and friends. Thank you.."
Pros: "I liked everything boarding was a bit late but all other services were excellent"
Cons: "Food was excellent and all in board services were excellent and crew did their jobs with a smile and so friendly"
