The capital city of the Philippines, Manila, is the economic and cultural home of the small, bustling island nation and the gateway to all its treasures. Home to civilization since at least the 10th century and located on picturesque Manila Bay, this city has tons of activities and attractions and is a great choice as a home base for any Southeast Asia adventure. And thanks to Travelocity, cheap flights to Manila via Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) are easy to procure and make exploring the Philippine Islands the perfect trip for adventurers of all kinds.
One of the first things you’ll want to do after your Manila flight’s arrival, is figure out how you’re going to get around this incredible city. Hotels near Ninoy Aquino International Airport are a great choice if you're looking for a high-class stay without any transportation hassle. That’s because many of these hotels offer complimentary 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport. And with daily flights to Manila, it's easy to get in and out of the city at your convenience. If you plan on staying in Manila's downtown area, which is usually a 30-minute drive away depending on traffic, several options for ground transportation are available. Taxis are common, but we'd recommend avoiding any drivers who try to solicit you and only taking prepaid, metered, or official cabs available inside the airport. Some of the bigger downtown hotels will book you a private car, which gives you more freedom of movement, but tends to be more expensive than a taxi. Alternately, you can ask for a private car yourself inside the terminal. Public transit is also available via the Manila Light Rail Transit System, the city's metropolitan rail system. The nearest station is Baclaran Station, which is a short taxi ride from the airport.

Airfares offered on Fridays tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2019. Purchasing your airfares on a Monday or Tuesday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Saturday. Our data shows, the start of the weekend has the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals on a weekend.
Frequent travellers may already know this, but earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Tuesday are the cheapest of the week. Since weekend flights tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise which is why on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2019 were most expensive for Saturday departures.
Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 1-2 weeks prior to their travel dates.
We'll let you in on a secret...You can save big on flights if you mix and match your airlines and fare types. In fact, travellers who booked flights on Travelocity.ca in 2019 saved close to 55% when their return flights consisted of two different airlines or fare types.
