Leaving on the 18th, need to know about ticket info and fees to be paid

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have my login on the Delta app, I have access to my itinerary. I'm not sure where/when exactly I can print the boarding pass yet. I've read that I'd need to have my fiance show the credit card he used to a Delta ticket counter or a Delta ticket office location and I've already asked him to do it as soon as he can.

I'm confused about what I'd need to pay when I go to NAIA. I've seen some mention a travel tax and another fee. What fees should I expect? I only see this as a Philippine fee on my receipt: Philippines - Passenger Service Charge (LI) -- $12.40 USD. I'd be grateful to know when and where I would be paying fees in NAIA, if there's any.

You will not be able to print the boarding passes at this point.

You can get them on check in at the airport.

If you check in on line 24 hours before your flight you may be able to print them at that time.

TRAVEL TAX AND AIRPORT FEES
Philippine Nationals are expected to pay for the Philippine Travel Tax upon departure from the Philippines.
It is usually paid at the airport upon departure or; oftentimes, already included in the cost of the ticket when purchased.
US Nationals and Permanent Residents (Green Card Holders) are exempt from the Philippine Travel Tax.
US Permanent Residents need to secure a Travel Tax Exemption Certificate from the Philippine Tourism Authority at the Department of Tourism Building at TM Kalaw Street, Ermita Manila.
The Philippine Travel Tax is PHP1,620.00 (approximately $35.00).

All passengers departing from the NAIA (Ninoy Aquino International Airport) are expected to pay the Airport Terminal Fee of PHP750.00 (approximately $17.00). No one is exempt from paying the Airport Terminal Fee.

When I left NAIA I was not asked to pay either fee.

I was exempt from the travel tax. I did not take the time to get the certificate.

The terminal fee was likely already collected when I booked the ticket.

My airline receipt did not have a specific line item for either fee.

From your post, I wasn't clear if you were asking about the travel tax for yourself or your fiance(e).

Which is why I included information on for the both of you.

Since your flying Delta you will be leaving via Terminal 1.

After you go through the front door, you will be in a large room.

There are lines for each airline to check in your luggage.

There is also a desk where you can pay the travel tax.

Another possible source of information would be to call Delta airlines and ask.

Hope this information helps.

Best of luck to you.

Oh, heh. Yeah, it's for me.

Your info is helpful since it shows the possible fees I might pay.

I'm just nervous since this will be my first flight ever and I'm alone. :D I forgot I can also email Delta for confirmation on the fees I will be paying for.

Travel taxes are to be collected by the airlines and are included in your ticket price. Since this is still in it's infancy, read your ticket closely for fees paid. If in doubt contact Delta by phone and determine if all fees have been collected or wait till you arrive at the airport at which time you can inquire at the check in counter. I believe you have already paid but double check to be safe.

Travel Fees:

Travel Tax/Exit Fee for all those immigrating: 1,620 Php (currently) Can be paid at the airport. Rules have changed recently so it's not included with the purchase of your airline ticket. Counter is staffed 24/7 at NAIA for all terminals.

Minors (from 2 years and one (1) day to 12th birthday on date of travel)

I bought my wife ticket online from united airlines, Since the ticket was paid for and purchase online in advance, I was told by the airlines, she did not need copy of credit card and the terminal fee is paid for. So I did not send copy of credit card. She arrived here June 9th no problems. She did have to pay the travel tax but not the terminal fee
