    Oops, seems like I have been doing the wrong thing for 10 years. Anyway, for the flights, you can try www.zuji.com.hk. I got return ticket a few weeks ago from them HK Manila on Phillipine airline for $999.

    Hi, I just bought a ticket online on the CebuPacific website with my Hong Kong credit card without any problems.

    That's interesting and helpful. I'll try again next time. I don't know why CP customer service told me that HK credit cards weren't accepted and that I would have to fax info over. (CP's HK office were even worse - they told me I had to go to their ticketing office in TST.) Maybe it was a problem on the day and/or CP customer service don't know what they're talking about!

    Portia,

    Shri - Thanks. I'll try again next time. I think I just got a dud customer service rep who gave me the wrong info. I certainly would have preferred to book online than to trek over to the travel agent.

    My helper's hometown is Ozamiz City. I know both Air Philippines and Cebu Pacific fly there.

    Thanks Cara, I should be more straight next time!! She was telling me how long the waiting time from Manila to her hometown will be, and also she doesn't want to take the ship because too dangerous and it'll take 3 days to get there??, blah blah blah...giving me headache..what would you all do??

    Just an update in case this is of use to anyone. I've just managed to purchase a Cebu Pacific airticket using my Citibank credit card with no problem, but the transaction could not be processed using my HSBC credit card. Go figure!
