How good are these Jetstar sale fares?

This Jetstar sale isn't the cheapest we've ever seen but prices are cheaper than what we've seen in the last few weeks.

Travelling from Sydney to Ballina Byron in November, these are the cheapest fares on offer beating competitor Virgin Australia's "Anywhere but here" sale price of $49 by 20%. Jetstar's offer is better again on the Brisbane to Mackay route in October. Virgin's prices start from $75 one way while Jetstar's fares start from $59 one way.

Normally travelling with Virgin Australia might be a better option due to checked baggage being included in your airfare. But from mid-August, Virgin re-structured its economy fares and its new "Lite" fare doesn't include luggage.

This means, at least in today's sale, that Jetstar comes out on top for saving you money.

The Jetstar sale is available until 8pm AEST 10 September 2021, unless sold out prior.

These fares at a glance

  • Good flexibility. For added security add Jetstar's FareCredit at the checkout. It's valid for 3 years from purchase. The FareCredit covers your ticket and any extras in case you need to cancel. All bookings with Jetstar vouchers will be returned if the flight is cancelled or affected by border restrictions.
  • Good airline. Jetstar is a budget airline with the aim to get you from A to B as cheaply as possible. Pay extra for refreshments, checked baggage and seat selection.
  • Great travel time. Enjoy direct flights with this Jetstar sale.
  • Great weather. We consider October to November to be the best time to visit Byron Bay. From things as exciting as skydiving to relaxing by the beach there's plenty to see and do in Byron.
