Budget flights to destinations like New Zealand, Hawaii, Japan and Thailand are offered for notoriously low prices in Jetstar's frequent sales.

    I wish to pay via Afterpay, but would like to book a flight due to great price but cannot make first payment for a few days. Can you do my booking?

      JhezFebruary 26, 2019Staff

      Hello Jane,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Unfortunately, we can’t do the booking for you however you can definitely use Afterpay to pay your Jetstar flights. Please note that the flights have to be booked at least eight weeks prior to travel to ensure that you pay off your purchase prior to boarding as repayments are taken fortnightly.

      If you don’t make your fortnightly repayments with Afterpay, you will be charged with a late-payment fee and your account will be locked until you settle it.

      You can visit this page for more details and also visit Jetstar’s website to book a flight.

    Perth to Bangkok depart between Xmas day & new years eve returning 17/1/18, when is the cheapest time to book economy?

      LiezlJuly 17, 2017

      Hi Simon,

      Thanks for your question. Just to confirm, you have reached finder, not actually Jetstar.

      Generally, the earlier you book the more you’ll save though booking approximately 17 weeks prior to departure can save you up to 5% off flights on many international departures. Mostly around a holiday time (Christmas, Thanksgiving etc) fares generally just keep going higher and higher. You may refer to our guide here on when to book for cheap flights for more tips. Additionally, you might also find our Bangkok travel guide on this page helpful.
