On time. Early arrival.

Luggage policy needs work. READ THEIR WEBSITE FOR AN EXPLANATION OF THEIR BAGGAGE POLICY. It costs a lot more if you check baggage that exceeds their permitted allowances at the airport. 7kg limit for one bag. Special charges for a 2nd bag Older equipment. Functional but well used. No food unless paid for separately.

Was charged 50$ at check in at airport for luggage. It was a carry on size they said it was over weight had flown with same items on several different airlines, Quantas, American, and virgin no one else stop me. If this is how they get the ticket cheap, just state that upfront. So I know and am not surprised at airport.

Flight was cancelled at the last minute. Jetstar doesn't have a customer service line you can call so it was very difficult to re-book. The chat was clunky and not compatable with mobile phone. Then they couldn't refund the extra fees I had paid for assigned seats - that is a "different chat site" though I was reassigned a Quantas ticket and given tickets that had us split up on that flight. They couldn't give me a booking number or anything like that for the Quantas flight either. I will just save the hassle and fly with Quantas next time. Unimpressed with JetStar and their customer service was terrible. Still out the refund money and frankly it is worth it not to have to deal with them again.

Only that it got us there safely.

Awful customer service and ridiculous baggage costs. We were traveling internationally and didn't have internet access at the time. We didn't realize we needed to "pre-check" our bags. It cost us double the amount of our flight cost to check our bags. They also carefully checked carry on weight at the ticket counter but then never tagged the bags and we had to have them reweighed at the gate. They also were ridiculously strict on carryon weight per bag. Don't get their policy when my husband and I weigh a total of 300 pds together and they can't be flexible on 1kg of carry-on weight. They also said they took American express cards (which does not charge us an exchange fee) and their machines wouldn't accept it, so I was charged an extra 3% via my credit card. Staff were surly and not helpful. Will never use Jetstar again

The staff were fantastic, very professional, friendly and helpful. On board wine and food was surprising with some gluten and dairy free options and a sparkling Tempus Two.

I purchased MoveMe to allow me to change to an earlier flight if my schedule changed. It did, and I arrived at the airport over an hour before the earlier flight was due to depart. I attempted to use the MoveMe option at the check in Kiosk and discovered it is not available at the kiosk. On speaking to a ground staff member, she advised that I was in plenty of time to move to the earlier flight, she confirmed that on a recent print out there were quite a few seats available and I simply had to go to the Service Desk.... which had a queue of approx. 8 people. Unfortunately, it took approx 20 mins to get served and it was now too late to get on the flight. If Tigerair are not resourced to efficiently manage face to face service then the MoveMe option must be available through the kiosk. This was an incredible waste of my time with well over 2 hours spent at the airport.

No complaints, except that on a 2 hour flight from Adelaide, I forgot to pre order vegetarian food, and the selection on the flight was inadequate. There was no hot vego meal, and I had to make do with snacks. And I was looking forward to having a 'better' meal, not just crackers or nuts or chips. After a day of work, one looks forward to a flight with the enjoyment of eating. The vegetarian menu is good,with Tiger so long as you remember to pre order!

We booked through Kayak and weren't told that when you book a flight with Jetstar, you get NO BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE. ZERO, ZIP, NIL. We didn't know this and assumed like other Australian and New Zealand carriers, we would each get one free bag, so I went online and paid $25 for a third bag. When we checked in for a domestic flight, we were told that we would have to pay $400 to send our luggage with us. THAT WAS MORE THAN WE PAID FOR OUR SEATS! We were also told that had we paid for our luggage ahead of time, it would have only been $60. Be very careful if you fly this airline. Make sure you know what is and what is not included with your ticket, especially if you use a third party to purchase your tickets. PS - All drinks (including coffee, tea, soda, etc.)are extra. Frankly, I'm surprised they don't charge for using the toilet in flight

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
