Tigerair Offers Zero Fare

Looking for cheap fares these upcoming months of September to December? If so, check this out.

Low-cost airline Tigerair announces a Zero Fare promo on all domestic and selected international destinations. The travel period is from September 1 to December 15, 2013. Promo period is from August 14 to 16 subject to seat availability.

For more details about specific destinations as well as number of available seats, please check this link.

How Much is the Total Cost?

Zero fare doesn't mean that you will pay zero. Zero Fare refers to the base fare only. Aside from that there are other items that needs to be paid like Fuel Surcharge.

Fuel surcharge varies depending on the route. For example, Manila - Cebu flights' surcharge is 300 Pesos. Fuel surcharges were allowed by the Civil Aviation Board (CAB) to help airlines recover their losses from the increase of jet fuel price in the world market.

In addition to fuel surcharge, Tigerair and other airlines also collects booking fee (including taxes) which amounts to 120 pesos.

Lastly, depending on the airport terminal, Tigerair and other airlines collects the terminal fee. For Cebu, Davao, Clark and NAIA airport terminals, the fee for domestic flight is 200 Pesos per outbound flight. For international flights, it is 550 Pesos.

If you decide to check-in some baggage, you also need to pay that based on the total weight and size.

As an example, my flight, Manila to Cebu costs only 620 Pesos, without baggage. The breakdown is shown below:

Base Fare: 0 Peso
Fuel Surcharge: 300 Pesos
Booking Fee (incl. taxes): 120 Pesos
Terminal Fee (one-way): 200 Pesos
Total: 620 Pesos

Fair enough? I think so.

About Tigerair?

Tigerair is the rebranded Tiger Airways.  Tigerair is a Singapore-based low-cost airline company.  In the Philippines, their official launch was last month, July. But their local presence was already felt more than a year ago when they bought 40% stake of Southeast Asian Airlines (SEAIR). After the deal, all SEAIR local flights can already be booked via Tigerair.

As a common strategy for low-cost airlines, Tigerair is always announcing low-fare promotions. The latest one is today's Zero Fare.

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos . Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some la

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real! So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911 Congratulations!

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store and I would like to share the steps I took in order to secure my account and get a new passbook. The steps outlined here is for a BPI savings account but generally the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and the most crucial step you need to immediately do is to contact your bank either through phone or personally reporting it to the branch where you opened the account. This will ensure that no funds will get out. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 89-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the lost. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for Replacement of Passbook This can be a simple replacement of the lost passbook but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes.
