Air Philippines’ Threesome Promo

That title got you didn’t it? Unfortunately, this promo from Air Philippines doesn’t offer a weekend of debauchery, but a 4 days 3 nights (the 3rd night is “free” hence threesome) stay at the tides in Boracay with airfare included for 10,200 ++ pesos per person for twin sharing. From all accounts, The Tides is a beautiful place to stay in Boracay, so this promo might attract a few of you tempted to go there.

However, this is a case where you might not exactly be getting as big of a discount as you thought. I checked the rates of The Tides, which are set at 140 ++ dollars a night. Multiplied by 3(nights) that equals 420, multiplied by the current exchange rate of 40 pesos that equals 16,800 pesos. Divided by 2 (two people), that equals 8,400. 10,200 minus 8,400 equals 1,800 which is the difference between the package and booking with The Tides separately for 3 nights. So technically, 1800 is the amount you’re paying for the flight. 1800 divided by two (for a return ticket) equals 900. Considering that Air Philippines’ cheapest flight out to Boracay at that time period is 888 Pesos, this means that you’d actually be paying more than what you might if you book a flight with Air Philippines and check in with The Tides separately.

It’s not a huge difference mind you, and considering that Air Philippines’ flights to Boracay can be as expensive as 3,000 pesos for a one way trip, this may be a good idea if you can’t get any of the cheaper flights. Asian Spirit has some 99 peso ongoing promos so it might be worth it to see if you can get a ticket there and just book at the tides separately.
