don’t you just love cebu pacific and their discounted air fares? i know i do!
last year, ♥ and i were able to avail of the discounted fares to singapore from the 10-10-10 promo. ♥ really stayed until the wee hours of the morning looking for discounted fares. luckily he was really persistent and patient. we were able to book a flight to sg in march. there’s actually another story on that but that would be for a different post.
anyway, i guess because he was already sleepy and tired, he booked me using his surname. hopefully, that would happen in the future but right now, we don’t have the license to do that yet. thus,the reason for this post.
i would like to share with everyone how easy it is to correct your name once you have booked a ticket online. initially, we were quite worried that my incorrect name might forfeit our booking because we availed of the promo. good thing that isn’t the case. cebu pac allows name correction even if your booking was booked under a promo.
maybe there have been numerous cases calling for name corrections so cebu pac already has their own pro-forma affidavit that you just have to fill-up. the affidavit can be downloaded here. next, the affidavit needs to be notarized. i had mine notarized for 100pesos. there might be cheaper notary services in your area so just scout for the cheapest. together with the affidavit, i scanned my passport and 2 IDs and emailed these to firstname.lastname@example.org. after only 23minutes, i got email confirmation that my name has been corrected. fast right? in my book, that is efficient customer service. they also emailed us the updated booking with my correct name.
so for those of you out there, who need to correct their names in their online booking, don’t fret. just follow the steps i shared and you’re good to go.
