Economy Traveller has used the Jetstar Price Beat Guarantee option on numerous occasions to get the best fare available on preferred flights – see our story HERE.
However, we’re lately left wondering if there’s something in the wings as we’ve notice they’ve recently added a little rider to the bottom of the Price Beat Guarantee Page which says
“Holidays or flights must be booked before or on 02 August 2015.”
an UPDATE at the end of July: “Holidays or flights must be booked before or on 02 February 2016.”
We’re trying to get clarification from Jetstar and as soon as this is available, this page will be updated. The date is now (at time of writing) 02 August 2017. This suggests the programme is on-going, so check on the link below to find your best deal.
For now, do give them a try, if you have the time to wade through the long list of conditions and are able to match all the slightly differently worded comparisons – e.g. The competitor flight must be “A flight plus up to 19kg of baggage” and the matched Jetstar flight “Our flight with no checked baggage allowance”.
If you succeed in finding a flight that’s cheaper after matching everything up, Jetstar will reward you with a 10% discount on their flight, which must be booked there and then. If you are doing this in Japan, they will give you the difference and the 10% as a voucher.
