Hard to say no to cheap flights... especially if you can slash a bit more off the top with a little research and a phone call. By taking advantage of Jetstar's Price Beat Guarantee, it's possible to not only shave 10 per cent off your trip, but the booking and credit card fees as well.
The OzBargain blog has all the details, be here's how it works:
Jetstar's price beat guarantee means that it will match the price of any competitor's price plus give you a further 10% off of your price. So if Tiger offers a $10 fare one way between Sydney and Melbourne you will receive the airfare for $9 each way from Jetstar. In addition, you won't pay Jetstar's credit card or booking fees. The same flight booked with Tiger would cost $10 each way + $7.50 cc/booking fee. So a $10 flight ends up costing $17.50 each way.
All you have to do is make sure you're prepared before you contact Jetstar. Pay Tiger Airways' website a visit first, track down the flights you want and jot down the relevant details. Then find the equivalent flights on Jetstar's system.
Saving on the booking and processing fees is a great bonus not mentioned on Jetstar's Price Beat Guarantee page and can make a big difference on cheaper jaunts.
