The Search for Cebu Pacific's JUAN FOR FUN 2018 EPIC TRIP has begun! Here's how to join!

Cebu Pacific Air brings back its one-of-a-kind backpacking trip, Juan for Fun, this time with more accessible mechanics to widen its reach for the next generation of travelers. 

This year's Juan for Fun 2018 Epic Trip brings 5 winners with two friends each, to any destination in the Philippines for 7 days for free, not just for fun and adventure, but also to learn.

"In the past six years, what we found the most fulfilling was how much the participants transformed after the trip. Whether it was their first time riding a plane, or first time to travel with friends, Juan for Fun opens up this new world of possibility, and makes them learn about themselves and the world." said Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing and Distribution of Cebu Pacific.

Stories like these are the focus of this year's Juan for Fun. The airline is veering away from the audition video requirements of the past, and is simply asking people to nominate someone they think deserves an Epic Trip through . Deadline for nomination is on March 31, 2018 .

Once chosen, five winners will have the chance to bring along two companion each on a week-long, all expenses paid trip around the Philippines in May 23-29, 2018.

A day before their adventure, the teams will be guided by Juan for Fun travel coaches - becoming Filipino's Kyle " Kulas" Jennerman: travel writer Jude Bacalso; celebrity and travel vlogger Bea Binene; celebrity and social medial personality, Baninay Bautista; as well as YouTube vloggers and personalities Wil Dasovich and Kimpoy Feliciano .

Bautista, one of Juan for Fun's new coaches, also recounts her first time riding a plane in her Juan for Fun recruitment video: " The was my most memorable travel of all time, kasi nandoon yung excitement ko; ' yung curiosity ko - kung anong feeling makasakay ngeroplano." 

Juan for Fun 2018 aims to inculcate in the youth that travelling is indeed possible and reachable.

Carl Calud, one of the Juan for Fun's alumni shared, "Juan for Fun was life-changing. Before, I thought traveling would just take so much time, effort, energy, and money. But after Juan for Fun, I realized that it's all worth it, because you get to grow as a person." 

Truly, an epic life-changing experience awaits five winners and their travel buddies in Juan for Fun 2018!
