Getting to the Philippines is very easy thanks to the Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL). The Manila International Airport is one of the two international airports serving the Metro Manila Area and is the main international gateway to the Philippines. Please check online or with your travel agent for pricing and schedule information. After you make your reservation, please include your flight arrival/departure information in the booking template. Airport pickup and transfer service is arranged based on this. If you would like SingleDivers.com to research and/or book your airfare ticket for you, we will be happy to do so for a $30 research & booking fee.
No visa required for US Citizen's stay not exceeding thirty (30) days. Traveller must hold valid ticket for return journey to country of origin or next country of destination and a passport valid for a period of at least six (6) months beyond the stay in the Philippines. For other global citizens, please review Philippine visa requirements posted on the Internet.
*AIRPORT/HOTEL TRANSFERS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE PRICE:
* Transfers are based upon how many people are in a van. Each van can take up to 4-6 people. Therefore arriving a day early or departing a day later will be more expensive if you wish to proceed to the resort immediately unless you have several people sharing the same arrival and/or departure times. SD.com will help consolidate people based up when they sign up into shared vans for the transfers. We can ALSO help you arrange a private transfer if desired. (Please consider arriving in Manila a day or so early to ensure your bags arrive and/or you do not experience flight delays.)
ALSO...if your INBOUND flight arrives 10 or later you need to book a hotel in MNL as it is too late to do the 3 hr transfer even as a private.
Package does not include transfers to and from the resort because of the distance from the airport to the resort. HOWEVER most int'l flights arrive at similar times so we will help you see which flights others are on to book the transfers accordingly. The first people to sign up will be the ones to set the first transfer times. Transfer from Manila airport to the island of Anilao and then to the hotel or back will take approx 3 hrs. YOU MUST ALLOW 2 hrs AT THE AIRPORT FOR INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT CHECK IN + TRANSIT TIME of 3 hrs WHEN PLANNING YOUR RETURN FLIGHTS....in other words you will need to depart at least 5 hrs or more before your flight. The hotel will and SD will help to group people with similar return flights but TRY TO AVOID BOOKING ANY EARLY FLIGHTS since you have to leave the resort at least 5 hrs before your flight. Late afternoon and evening flights are BEST FOR THE RETURN TO THE US. We encourage you to STILL consider arriving early and stay a day or so in Manila to ensure your bags arrive and/or to avoid missing a scheduled transfer of your shuttle if your flight is delayed.
1 person $125.00 one way.
2-3 people $115.00 per person round trip.
4-6 people $85.00 per person round trip.
TRIP INSURANCE IS OPTIONAL BUT STRONGLY SUGGESTED
If you miss any Flights to (MNL) Manila you MAY be able to catch a flight the next day but MANY run full so you may have to wait several days on top of private transfers to get to the resort! If you choose to self-insure that is fine but you also choose to accept all losses accordingly as SD.com nor any vendors will be responsible for losses due to non-insurance.
We recommend: Dive Assure, please reference SingleDivers.com via the drop down menu under GLOBAL PARTNERS. See the INSURANCE TAB for more details.
