Flying via Cebu Pacific? Here are some helpful information for domestic and international flights regarding allowable baggage weight, excess baggage rates, prepaid excess baggage (PEB), baggage reinstatement fees (BRF), and rules for check-in and boarding times.

Before going on a trip, make sure to weigh your baggage as it really pays to know beforehand. Refer to the allowed weight for handcarry and checked baggage below. In case your checked baggage excess weight would be more than 5 kgs, then it’s better to avail of Cebu Pacific’s prepaid excess baggage (PEB) fees. Check out the fees below for every additional 5 kgs increment of excess weight.

Also, when purchasing tickets, don’t choose the GO Lite package (no check-in baggage at Php100 less) if you are not sure about bringing a checked baggage or not. Otherwise you’ll have to pay the baggage reinstatement fee (details below) should you show up at the counter with a baggage for check-in. This penalty fee when added to your GO Lite fare would you cost more than the regular GO Fare seats, so better decide wisely about checked baggage issues when buying tickets.
