Jetstar Birthday Sale FREE Return - Travel in Oct-Dec and Jan-Mar + MEL-Honolulu $339 Return + Further extended to Asian cities

3960

This is their birthday sale, details in the link.

Some sample ones are
+ Melb - Bali $199 - $219 return
+ Melb - SIN $199 - $249 return
+ Melb/Syd - Honolulu - $339 return (despite the sale fare advertised at $359, I found many dates in Mar with lower price)

** Jetstar website has been ozbargained now. You can use mobile site to search and book ticket **
http://m.jetstar.com

EXTENDED TO ASIAN cities on return sale fare:
- This is NOT a price error, this is how Jetstar system pricing works.

The basis of this sale is that return ticket is FREE and one of the sales route is MEL/SYD/… - SIN and because return leg of SIN - MEL/SYD/… is $0 so if you search ANY destination from Australia which has connecting flight in Singapore, the return leg is just the cost of flight from that destination (mostly Asia) to Singapore which is really cheap. All you need to do is find the cheap departure date and make sure the return flight is within the sale period of Singapore sale period.

This will also apply to HKG, SGN, KUL (~$16AUD return to Mel for example) or ANY destination that is connecting via SIN. For future reference, if the sales includes Bangkok then the same concept will apply for any destination with connecting flight via Bangkok.

Your departure flight DO NOT need to be within the sale period as long as your RETURN flight is within the sale period, you will see $0 fare for return flight

Note:

  • If you book more than 1 tickets, SEPARATE the booking if possible because you will receive $25 Jetstar hotel voucher for EVERY Itinerary booked. So if you book 2 tickets on 1 itinerary you will only receive 1x $25 Jetstar voucher. Voucher expires in 2 weeks. So that’s $25 “cashback“ of your cheap flight. You can use that to book hotels.
  • Just for future reference voucher only issued for flights depart from Australia. Remember to pay using PoLi because Direct Deposit sometimes doesn't get you voucher like it happened to me last time I booked.

  • Since last year, Jetstar/ Airasia has changed the rule and it cost more to add luggage later. So if you need check in luggage, you'd better add it when book your ticket. The cons is if you forfeit your ticket you will lose this as well.

  • This may be for useful for someone, Jetstar also has 30kg check-in luggage for the price of 25kg together with this sale. I just checked and it only applies to some routes even though the email states that it applies to JQ flight.
    i.e Mel-DPS has the same price for 25kg and 30kg but MEL-SIN doesn't.

  • You DO NOT need Club Jetstar Membership to book these fares, so do NOT waste your money. Just book from the link in this post !!!

  • Use PoLi / Direct Deposit payment method to avoid credit card fee.

Thanks to GearUp
You can book Melbourne Airport Parking with 10% off coupon JETSTAR, make sure you check and compare the price. Melbourne Airport Parking is actually cheaper than those parking company around the airport so check and compare the price first before you book.

    Beat me to it. Great deal. At the moment you need Jetstar Club membership for early access: http://www.jetstar.com/au/en/club-jetstar
    The fee of $39.99 is waived for the first year. Scored a couple of return flights to Bali from Brisbane for $199 each.

    •  

      Free membership for a year sounds nice!

      great find mate! can you cancel before 1 year expires? :)

      •  

        Thanks. That I'm not sure sorry. Maybe someone can answer that. I would assume you could but it's only a guess.

      • +2 votes

        I'm guessing you won't be refunded as per T&C'S

        2.1 Upon enrolment, each Member will be charged a joining fee. An annual membership fee also applies. The annual membership fee will be waived for the first year of Membership.

        2.2 The joining and annual membership fees are non-refundable, notwithstanding Member’s cancellation of membership in the Club.

        •  

          Thanks for the clarification.

      I think there is joining fee for $39 and annual fee of $39.99 from the sound of it, and only annual fee is waived?
      So you still need paying the joining fee.

    •  

      I was surprised no one posted this deal yet :)

    •  

      I booked mine without any membership..

    •  

      First-timer so go easy. Are they special offers that amazing to sign up?

      •  

        Not worth to sign up, there is barely any offers anyway. I signed up because of the promo Jetstar had last time which I will get $39 Jetstar voucher. I still haven't received my voucher yet. I have to email them to follow up.

  •  

    Sorry, didn't scroll down the page far enough

    •  

      Doesn't look like Japans in this deal. Singapore, NZ, Bali, Hawaii and Thailand seem to be all the international flights on sale from select destinations.

      •  

        Bummer, thanks

        First thing I checked. Unfortunate…

    Domestic flights are included, i.e MEL-SYD $55 return is great.

    PER - DPS for $160/pp but $65/pp each way for baggage. Turns it into $290 return which is less appealing.

    Need to factor in for longer haul flights, Jetstar's extra charges for seat+luggage+c/card+meal both ways which is much higher than other budget carriers.

    Gosh.. This is cheap

  •  

    are there ways to avoid booking / credit card fees etc?

    • +4 votes

      Pay with PoLi or Direct Deposit.

    •  

      Also, you can buy jetstar gift vouchers but it has to match the price exactly because you don't get a refund and you can only use them in one transaction.

    •  

      pay from your savings account using POLi … if you have the dosh

    •  

      Book using Direct Deposit.

      That way, there are no additional fees, plus you get to reserve your flight for up to 48 hours whilst you decide whether to proceed or not.

    I'm so confused. Do i need to pay for the Jetstar Club membership to get access to these deals? I can currently see Melbourne to Myanmar for $336 up and $66 return Oct 19 to Nov 4. This isn't free return is it?

    •  

      You need to pay return ticket tax.

    •  

      Only the Singapore to Melbourne leg is free. Yangon is not advertised as being free. You are paying $66 for the Yangon to Singapore leg.

    •  

      Yes you need to be a Jetstar Club member. That fares not free. The return fare will be $0, plus Myanmar isn't on the list anyway. Singapore and Thailand are though from Melbourne so you could probably get a cheap flight from there.

          @alwayseric: No, seats are only required from 2 years. They do require a ticket though, hence booking them as an infant.

        •  

          @carlenet: really appreciate it. we will have a baby in 3 months. have no idea how to fly with a baby :)

  •  

    just bought to bali next march. cheaper than going to Goldcoast. but I didn't get the 30kg for the luggage…

    But I'm happy as larry and the kids are stoked..

    Now for accommodation, any kid friendly resorts in nusa dua??

    mixo

    •  

      Grand mirage Nusa Dua! Loved it!!

    •  

      Same booked for next march

    •  

      Nusa dua isn't the best place to go in my opinion. Too segregated. Doesn't really feel like Bali

  •  

    OK I'm not really up to speed with Jetstar pricing. Is it worth joining the Jetstar Club just to get a foot in the door early?

    When does the sale start for the general public?

      Sale has started already, I booked my flight without any Jetstar club membership

    I don't understand, I am not with Jetstar club but I booked Bris to Mel with free return still anyway???

    Doesn't seem to be any restriction for me. Mind you it wasn't super cheap, but was ok price. Ended up being about $85 1 way

    Guys
    You don't need to pay for the Jetstar Club membership, don't waste your money.

    The OP has provided the 'secret' club link, that is not targeted. That's the whole point of this deal being here, free for all!

    Book via the link, no club membership.

  •  

    Thanks people.
    11 of us booked to Gold Coast during summer holidays

    combined with the themepark VIP pass (buy 3 get 1 free)

      If you are going to wet n wild the fast pass is well worth it
