MANILA, Philippines – 2GO Travel, the Philippines’ largest premier sea travel provider, released updated travel protocols to comply with the new directive set by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) Resolution No. 104, which states that only essential travel in and out of Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal, otherwise known as “NCR Plus” is allowed from March 22 to April 4, 2021.
Essential travelers permitted into and out of the NCR Plus bubble during the two-week period include health and emergency frontline services personnel, government officials and government frontline personnel, duly authorized humanitarian assistance actors, persons traveling for medical or humanitarian reasons, OFWs leaving for work abroad, and ROFs, and anyone crossing zones for work or business or going back home.
Though the nation’s capital is on a stricter General Community Quarantine, 2GO Travel remains operational, with several voyages a day. Passengers on non-essential travel may rebook or refund their tickets without penalties.
In addition, 2GO is offering free unlimited rebooking to all its passengers with bookings and travel from January 1 until June 30, 2021. Their tickets may be rebooked for an unlimited number of times, free-of-charge, and the new travel dates can be as far out as December 15, 2021, on the same accommodation, and maybe subject to fare difference. This move is to support the revival of the Tourism industry and to encourage domestic travel during this difficult time.
“In these changing times, our passengers’ safety remains our top priority as we continue with our business operations, while also doing our part in curbing the spread of the virus. We do this by complying with the travel protocols implemented by the government, placing health and safety measures onboard all vessels and ports of call. We also inform our passengers through SMS and social media regarding their trip status and travel requirements, not only from the place of departure but most especially, upon arrival at the destination,” 2GO Assistant Vice President Blessie Cruz said.
On top of the free unlimited rebooking offer, 2GO Travel is holding a three-day sale starting today until March 26, 2021, to sail from Batangas to Caticlan and Roxas for only PHP299 one-way.
Routes from Manila to Bacolod, Cebu, Coron, Iloilo, Dumaguete, and Puerto Princesa are at PHP399, while must-visit destinations in Mindanao such as Butuan, Iligan, Ozamiz, Zamboanga, and Cagayan De Oro are as low as PHP499 per ticket. Sailing is from May 1 through December 15, 2021.
All passengers are mandated to use personal protective equipment while traveling with 2GO as well practice social distancing from check-in, boarding, and disembarkation.
