Afterpay flights and travel guide

How to lay-by your holiday and take eight weeks to pay it off interest-free.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

Travel sales pop up sporadically, and when a hot one appears, you can still advantage even if you're short on cash, this is where Afterpay comes in.

It's like lay-by for online (and in-store) purchases, only you get to take your item home before you finish paying it off. You'll have eight weeks from the time of purchase to pay it off before you'll start being charged late fees and have your account paused.

Which sites offer Afterpay flights?

Afterpay is currently available with Jetstar for flights and related products including checked luggage, seat selection and in-flight meals. Purchases can be up to $1,200 excluding any booking or payment fees and made at least four weeks before departure.

All Afterpay bookings with Jetstar incur a 1.5% service charge fee of the total booking price. This is something new for Afterpay, as its retail merchants don't charge its customers fees for opting to use this payment method.

Afterpay is also available with Webjet for flights, holiday packages and select hotel bookings. Purchaes can be up to $2,000 and can be made through mobile, desktop or the Webjet app.

How does Afterpay work for flights?

Initially available for fashion, beauty and homewares purchases, it entered the travel space in September 2017 by partnering with budget airline Jetstar.

Just like you would opt to pay with a credit card or paypal when making a purchase online, you can opt to pay via Afterpay and the item will be instantly yours.

Repayments will be automatically taken from your account in interest-free installments every fortnight for eight weeks. You'll be sent a text message reminder before the deduction is taken, which is an easy reminder to make sure the funds are in your account.

Are there other companies like Afterpay to book flights?
