We assure you that your current tickets are safe and remain valid. We have enhanced some of our polices to give you more flexibility due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, and uncertainties of travel.


For your safety including those around you, travelers who test positive for COVID-19 are not allowed to board in any Philippine Airlines flight or visit any of its offices (PAL Ticket Offices, Cargo Offices, etc.). For your convenience, you can make changes to your bookings through our Reservations Hotline or myPAL Request Hub, with more details found under this page.


What are your options for changes to your booking?

If your flight is affected by cancellations or travel ban (from February 2 to June 30, 2021), you can:





Convert to a Travel Voucher and get more value for your ticket.

Equivalent to the unused net value and unused taxes of your ticket PLUS 10% of the unused net value. The unused net value refers to the unused base fare net of commission and other charges/fees. This benefit is available only among passengers who have not made previous changes to their booking. Initially valid for 1 year and can be extended for another year. Travel is subject to fare rules of the redeemed ticket. Requests must be made until June 30, 2021. Click here for the complete terms and conditions of the Travel Voucher.






Rebook or Reroute your ticket.

Unlimited (No rebooking fee)
  • No rebooking fee and no fare difference for completed travels within the same booking class on or before September 30, 2021 or ticket validity, whichever comes first. Applicable government taxes may be collected. Requests must be made until June 30, 2021. 
  • No rebooking fee for completed travels within the same cabin class from October 1 - December 31, 2021 and within ticket validity. Fare difference and taxes may be collected. Cancel at least 24 hours before your flight to avoid no show fee. 
  • Passengers holding Philippines to Australia (SYD, MEL, BNE) and Philippines to New Zealand (AKL) tickets who opt to take special PAL flights on December 01, 2020 to April 30, 2021 shall have penalties waived and fare difference/taxes collected, if applicable. 

For rerouting, fare difference, taxes, and no show fee may be collected.






Refund your ticket without penalties, excluding Ticketing Service Charge (TSC).


Note: For domestic tickets issued starting March 01, 2021, the Ticketing Service Charge (TSC) is refundable for unused tickets and non-refundable for used (partial or full) tickets.

Passengers affected on flight cancellations for  Manila-London Heathrow and London Heathrow-Manila routes until May 31, 2021 may either convert their ticket to a travel voucher  (until June 30, 2021 only), or opt for a refund with waived penalties, including Ticketing Service Charge (TSC).

If your flight is not affected by cancellations or travel ban, you can make voluntary changes to your flight following the new No-Worry Flight Fare Brand. All changes shall be made within ticket validity and applicable change fees shall be assessed on the fare conditions of the route.

How can I refund my ticket?

If your flight is affected by cancellations or travel ban (from February 2 to June 30, 2021), you are eligible for a refund without penalties. If your flight is not affected by cancellations or travel ban, we’re also offering you the option to refund your ticket subject to fare rules. The refund may be subject to applicable penalties depending on the schedule, status, and issuance date of your ticket.

Due to the high volume of requests and limitations from the Enhanced Community Quarantine in the Philippines, there may be some delays in processing of refunds. We ask for your patience and understanding during this busy period.

REFUND OF CASH PAYMENTS
  • For cash payments made through PAL Ticket Offices, your refund can be processed at any of our Ticket Offices once operations resume, after the Enhanced Community Quarantine is lifted. Please refer to the list of PAL Ticket Offices.
  • For cash payments made through Payment Centers, your refund can be processed at any of our Ticket Offices once operations resume or our PAL Reservations Hotline.
  • Please be advised that cash refunds may take 3-5 months, depending on the lifting date of the community quarantine period.

REFUND OF DEBIT AND CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS
  • For Mastercard, Visa, American Express, JCB Credit or Debit Card payments, your refund can be processed through our myPAL Request Hub or our PAL Reservations Hotline. The refund shall be credited back to the card account used.
  • If the credit card used is not under the passenger’s account name, the passenger and credit card holder both agree that:
    • Either the passenger OR credit card holder may apply for a refund, provided that the credit card holder must present a copy of the passenger’s government-issued ID and passenger’s duly signed authorization letter for the said purpose.
    • PAL shall not be held liable to the passenger and/or credit card holder for any and all damages that may result from the ticket cancellation.


REFUND OF OTHER PAYMENTS 
  • For Alipay, PayPal, GCash, or WeChat payments, your refund can be processed through our myPAL Request Hub or our PAL Reservations Hotline. The refund shall be credited back to your Alipay, PayPal, Gcash, WeChat account used.
  • For Alternative Payment Options via 2C2P for Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore, you can also request through myPAL Request Hub or our PAL Reservations Hotline. PAL may contact you to request for additional information (e.g. Bank Account number) to process the refund.


How long can I expect my refund to be credited back to my account?

For tickets purchased using credit card, Alipay, Gcash, Paypal, and Wechat Pay, the amount will be credited back to the account used at around 5 months or 5 billing cycles from the date of processing, depending on the bank’s turnaround times.
