I knew I was going to check a bag. Jetstar sent me a text instructing me to check in, which I did. No info about baggage with the check in. Got to the airport and they charged me almost $100 for luggage. If I had prepaid it would have been $30. Staff at checking counter were rude and unhelpful.

Children 12 and 10 booked online to fly to Melbourne for Easter. I rang the call centre to ensure they could travel together unaccompanied, as website was not clear. I was advised they could, and because I was concerned I asked this be noted on our booking so we wouldn't have any issues at the gate. I was reassured the children could travel and they made a note as requested. Turn up for our flight today and at the gate after saying goodbye to my children, they're stopped from entering the plane and I'm told they can't travel, despite the advice I received from the call centre and the note on our booking showing we were given this advice. We did everything right to make sure we could travel, just to be refused at the gate. Disgusting.

We were on the tarmak an additional 30 minutes, then in the air for an additional hour due to the weather. It would have been really nice if they had offered us bottled water or something. I was very surprised that even to get water it was a $4 charge. I likely will not be flying Jetstar again. I appreciate a company not nickle and diming with customers.

I had to pay over $200 for my baggage because Kayak didn't tell me that the flight I purchased didn't include at least one checked bag. There was nothing in any of my confirmations and Jetstar's fees are outrageous. Will not fly with this airline or book with Kayak again after this experience.

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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days.
