If you’re trying to stretch your travel budget as much as possible, here’s my secret to finding the cheapest flights in Australia.
It’s really simple and in this video, I’ll demonstrate step by step how you can both find and virtually book your flight in less than 5 minutes.
The secret? Jetstar’s Price Beat Guarantee. If you find a lower comparable fare online and it satisfies their Terms & Conditions, they will not only match the price, they’ll beat it by 10%. I’ve been using this little trick for years and it’s saved me quite a bit of money.
At the time I shot this video, the Price Beat applies to domestic flights within Australia and also international flights leaving from selected Australian cities. Check out Jetstar’s website to get the latest T&C’s and the Price Beat Guarantee here:
The T&C’s I look at the most are to make sure the two flights are within one hour of each other (for domestic flights in Australia) and that you apply for the Price Beat more than 7 days from when you plan to fly.
Simple steps on how it’s done:
1. Find your flight on
2. Find a similar and cheaper flight with a competitor
(Usually but check to be sure)
3. Check the flight satisfies the Price Beat Terms & Conditions
4. Apply for the Price Beat
5. Answer a few simple questions
6. Wait for the confirmation email & Pay
And you’re pretty much done.
