Cebu Pacific – How to Add Baggage Allowance or Upgrade Prepaid Baggage Service

There are instances when we book promo fares tickets but failed to book check-in baggage allowance, only to find out later on, that you need a few kilos for your big bags and luggage. Fortunately, adding a baggage allowance is easy to do. All you have to do is go to Cebu Pacific website and then click on “Manage Booking” tab then click on “Add Baggage”.

This is a guide to help you modify your confirmed Cebu Pacific booking to add check-in prepaid baggage service.

Note: Paid prepaid baggage can’t be refunded once your booking is confirmed so please be very sure.

Here are the steps to add or upgrade baggage allowance for your next flight on this budget airline:

First, you have to login to your Cebu Pacific account at www

Then once logged-in, hover over the “Manage Booking” tab.

Click on “Add Baggage” under the Purchase Add-Ons column.


Add Baggage Modify Cebu Pacific Booking

A new page loads, you need to scroll down the page until you get to the section that says “CURRENT BOOKINGS”

Then you need to click the confirmed booking that you want to add baggage to. If you only have one booking, the page will only show 1 option and you click the little “circle” button. If you have several confirmed bookings, all these will show. Choose the booking that you want to modify and add baggage to.

Baggage Booking Updated Guide as of APRIL 11,2017

Once certain that you have the correct booking, you then have to click the “Continue” button. Your current baggage status for the chosen Cebu Pacific booking will then show.

If this is your first time to buy baggage for this particular booking, the summary page will show no current baggage. But if you did buy previously, say 15 kgs, and now you want 20 kgs, you will pay the difference between your original baggage allowance and your new baggage allowance.

Price of 15 kilos baggage is P257.60 while price of 20 kilos baggage is P380.80.  In this example, you will only pay additional of P123.20.

AT THE AIRPORT CHECK-IN COUNTER, 1 kilo of check-in baggage (excess) is P200!!! So buy prepaid baggage if you need it so you can save.

Cebu Pacific’s Prepaid Baggage Options and Rate

As of today April 11, 2017 (there has been a baggage rate increase when we first published this guide so we are updating now). These are rates for Domestic Flights.

Small up to 15kgs = Php 257.60

Standard up to 20kgs = Php 380.80

Large up to 30kgs = Php 784.00

Extra Large up to 40kgs = Php 1,232.00

After you have chosen your preferred additional check-in baggage allowance, the page will show your new “TOTAL AMOUNT DUE”. This will correspond to the baggage package that you selected. You can now click “Continue” so you can confirm you are okay with the baggage charge and all other details.

Payment options will then load. You can pay the additional baggage via any of the Cebu Pacific payment channels:

Via Over the counter payment centers like LBC, SM Dept Store, Robinson Department Stores, Meralco Bayad Center etc

Via ATM: Bancnet Online or Megalink

Remember that Cebu Pacific Air only allows 7 kg of hand-carry bag with no charge. Any excess bags must be check-in. The fee for excess baggage per kilo once you are at the airport check-in counter is more expensive compared to if you avail of a prepaid baggage service from this airline company. It will be 200 pesos per kilo of excess baggage for Philippine flights. Short haul international flights excess baggage fee varies depending on route.

    • Nestle ann dagdag says

      Hi poh good evening..maam hand cary lng poh jng nasa ticket ko but gusto ko nlng mg add on baggage at least 15 it more expensive maam??thanks

  3. Hi, would I be able to purchase additional baggage even one day before my flight? Thanks.

  4. i already have an existing baggage allowance of 15 kilos for domestic flight from tacloban to iloilo via cebu and i want to add additional 15 kilos but the upgrade for baggage allowance only shows upgrade my 15 kilos to 20 kilos baggage allowance which is still lacking because i want to upgrade it to 30 kilos. how is it possible???

    • PisoFare Philippines says

      Hi Yan, When you upgrade your baggage allowance you are actually BUYING A NEW BAGGAGE package. Mawawala yung 15 kilos mo, and you will pay for a new 30 kilos baggage allowance. There is no upgrade option 15 + 15. It’s like buying fresh baggage allowance.

      • Hi! I’m confused, in your example above, you have existing 15kilos then you add 20kilos so have a total of 35kilos? And your response here is there is no upgrade option of 15 + 15. Does it mean, that you can upgrade your baggage but it should be higher than your previous? like 15 + 20 or 20 + 30? Thanks!

      • I am confuse as well. Already had 15K but want to purchase another 15K via the manage booking section so that my total baggage would become 15+15=30. If the option is buying a new one, then I have to purchase the 30K and my previous 15K will be lost/ not acknowledge anymore?

        • PisoFare Philippines says

          Hi Obert, if you have already purchased 15 kilos baggage, the 15 kilos baggage option will not show up for you (unless Cebu Pacific have updated their system and change this set-up). What we recommend you do is to call the airline’s hotline so you can talk to their CSRs. They will be able to answer any queries you may have about adding more baggage allowance or upgrading your current pre-paid baggage. The Cebu Pacific Manila hotline number is (02)702 0888.

  5. Is it okay if I’m going to process the payment today around 6pm at the nearest LBC however my flight is tomorrow at 4am. Will it appear on te system or records automatically?

  6. where can i find the control number that i’ll be using in paying? thanks

  7. is it possible to add more baggage? I already purchased 40kg and now Iwant to add more 40kg, total of 80kg?

  8. shyn laranja says

    • PisoFare Philippines says

  9. Hi, I bougth an option “fly+bag” so I can take 20kg baggage. When I made a reservation I couldn’t add any baggage except that. My question is – is there any option to add 15 kg baggage more at this fare?

  19. LigayA cahilig says

    Hi I tried to upgrade my pre paid checked in luggage from 20 kgs to 40 kgs. Flight from manila to kalibo on july but it seems the system just allow 20 kgs only. Can you help me what to do?

    • PisoFare Philippines says

      There is a chance that you plane can carry a certain total weight, thus they are not allowing passengers to bring in bulky luggage.

  20. Hi I’m flying on Sunday July 3 connecting flight from KL to Manila then Manila to tuguegarao.My boss has just book me 20 kg and I want to add additional 20kg ,is it possible for me to do it online?and how?hope to here from you soon!thanks and have a good day!

  21. hi! can.I use box instead of luggage for my check in baggage?

  22. So I can check two bags as long as they don’t weigh more the 45 kilos combined?

  23. Norris romano says

    Hi, i already purchase 40kg, in regular booking, and im hoping to purchase another 20kg, how much weight is the limit per person?

  24. Norris romano says

    If, book a flight fly+bag 20kg+ food, then we upgrade the baggage for 40kg, is it possible to add on more baggage, using the prepaid baggage?

    • PisoFare Philippines says

      There are limits per passenger… if you are travelling in a group it is best to distribute the baggage allowance to all of your group members.

  25. if i am not the one who book the ticket can i add baggage using my own account in cebu pacific?

  26. Hi Pisofare Philippines,
    Thanks so much for your guideline, it helped me a LOT. 🙂
    I just have upgraded baggage allowance on a Cebu Pacific flight and first was not able to understand their philosophy as I was looking for adding a bag instead of increasing the total weight… 😛
    I have been very confused by your little weight computation though and finally found out that this is not correct (confirmed by the new confirmation):
    When you upgrade, you do not buy a totally new luggage allowance which is added to your already booked allowance, so: if you had 15 kg and you chose 20 kg, you do NOT get 15 kg + 20 kg = 35 kg but effectively just 20 kg.
    – In my case I had 20 kg that I payed PHP 358.40 at the time of the booking.
    – I then chose 40 kg and it was indicated “add PHP 761.60” which is simply the difference between PHP 1’120 for 40 kg and PHP 358.40 for 20 kg.
    – At the end I got my new confirmation which effectively shows 40 kg baggage allowance and NOT 20 kg + 40 kg = 60 kg.
    CONCLUSION: You just pay the difference between the former and the new baggage allowances and get what you have chosen in kg.
    This should be corrected in your guideline.
    But never mind, your explanations really helped me to understand how it works. 🙂

  27. Jana del rosario says

    Good day! Ask ko po pno mgadd baggage pg hindi ung ngbook ang mgaadd? Need po ng booking number at fullname kung group po pwede po b ung isa s name ng nkbook ang mgadd baggage? Binibigay lng po kc ng company s amin ung ticket gusto ko po sna mgadd ng baggage…thanks

  28. what if I wanted to change or cancel selected baggage allowance, is it possible?

  29. Hi..example i have already booked 20kg for my check in luggage but i want to upgrade more like 40kg so that i will have 60kg in total…is this allowed?( 60kg for 1 passenger only.)

    • PisoFare Philippines says

      No, you can upgrade to 40 Kgs, but you will forfeit your previous 20 kg allowance…. Max of 40 kilos per passenger.

  30. So if i upgrade to 40kg… can i check in 2 luggage 20kg each under my name?thanks

  35. Hi, I booked a flight and paid for it already. Now, I thought I might need an additional baggage allowance so I went to “Manage Booking>Add Baggage” now I have a payment Due of P224 for choosing 15 kilos baggage allowance, I haven’t paid for my additional baggage allowance yet and now I no longer have any intention of doing so since I think I don’t need it anymore, my question, If I don’t pay for it will they cancel it or will they still let me pay for that P224 (15 kilos) baggage allowance fee?

  36. Hi, My Husband booked a flight for me departing from cebu at 5:10am to butuan. He purchased flight+bag allowance which is included 20kg. Now i wanted to upgrade my baggage allowance to 40kg but it wont give me a choices. What i need to do now? I really need to upgrade my baggage allowance as im coming from USA.

    • PisoFare Philippines says

      Some flights doesn’t allow more than 20 kg due to plane capacity… best if you can contact the airline company.

  37. Hello,
    I just booked 4 roundtrip tickets for Bacolod – Cebu -Bacolod; I did not choose prepaid baggage since we don’t need it but after paying it and getting the confirmation number, that’s when I noticed that I was charged 4 prepaid baggages from Cebu to Bacolod. Immediately, I called their US hotline number for them to correct the charges but the staff said it could not be cancelled anymore. This was less than 2 minutes of me booking it and I did not even purchase that baggage allowance. Any advice who I can contact to have this issue corrected? I was charged about P1,500 for something that I do not need and did not even purchase. Thank you so much for your help.

  42. A Trveller says

    Hey guys i have a small confusion. I bought a ticket but it just includes 20 kg and i want to turn it into 30 kg how do i solve this problem.

    • Pisofare.PH says

      Go to cebupacific website, then click on “Manage Booking”, then click “Add Baggage”. It will require you to login to cebu pacific. You can then choose 30kilos, you will pay the PRICE DIFFERENCE between 20 kilos and 30 kilos baggage. If you do not have an account with Cebu Pacific, call up their hotline and request a customer service rep to add the 10 kilos more to your baggage. Again, you will only pay the price difference of your prepaid baggage upgrade.

  43. what if I already had the upgrade of baggage allowance like 3oKg na.. allowed ba na 2 bags yan na ang total ay 30kg?

  44. Sarah alajar says

    Good day po Ma’am/Sir,
    Ano po ba dapat kong gawin.. magbook po ako ng ticket yung FLY+BAG which is 20kls lang allowed. Pero yung bagahe ko po isa nasa 35-40kls.. paano po ba mag add? Pwede po ba yung ibook ay FLY lang muna then bago ka magpurchase ng baggage? Kindly advice po. Salamat.

  45. Hi! So, ok lang po ba na ganito ang gawin ko. Magbook po ako ticket (FLY ONLY na 7kgs allowed lang) and then 4 hours prior to our flight, I can upgrade the prepaid baggage allowance na 20kgs? Please advise po. Thank you!

  46. Edwin dela luna says

    Hi there,
    Gusto ko sana mag add on upto 45 kgs kasi 45 kgs yung baggage allowed sa international flight ko from Doha next month. However, max 40 kgs lang ang mai-add on sa CebuPac online. Please advise.

  47. Good pm po. May ticket na po ako Manila to Puerto Princesa. Meron pong 20 kilos baggage allowance. Paano po kapag gusto kong gawing 40 kilos? At magkano naman po ang babayaran ko? Thanks po.
