We were told that if we had paid in advance it would be cheaper, but we didn't know what the weight of our bags would be so I just figured I'd pay at the airport. They didn't say that they charge so much more at the airport - which is a total rip off. We were also harassed by not having the email that showed we purchased an Australian Visa which is digitally tied to our passport. If they need to verify our Visa, then they should have the electronic means to verify it. Also, we were traveling from Sydney to Auckland so since we were leaving the country I'm not sure why they had to see our Australian Visa in the first place. We were already in the country!

The agent informed me that I needed to pay baggage fees based on weight at the time I booked. How in the hell am I supposed to know 2 months in advance how much my luggage weighs? The baggage fees were 4 times the price of the ticket! And then they weigh your carry on to try to collect even more fees if the total weight of your carry on exceeds 7kg. No food or water on board and VERY rude head flight attendant. NEVER AGAIN and I will think twice about booking through Kayak given I was never informed of these fees in advance.

Okay 4.0

Cons: We were shocked to be charged $275 for two checked bags. At the point that you are checking in you are trapped and don't have a choice but to pay it. We were told that if we had paid in advance it would be cheaper, but we didn't know what the weight of our bags would be so I just figured I'd pay at the airport. They didn't say that they charge so much more at the airport - which is a total rip off. We were also harassed by not having the email that showed we purchased an Australian Visa which is digitally tied to our passport. If they need to verify our Visa, then they should have the electronic means to verify it. Also, we were traveling from Sydney to Auckland so since we were leaving the country I'm not sure why they had to see our Australian Visa in the first place. We were already in the country!

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: They cancelled our flight with no warning, we had to scramble to find an alternative connection to our international flight. The voucher they gave to compensate was more of an insult than anything. They also have ridiculously low maximum weight limits for carry on and then charged absurd rates for checked luggage.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: This is a budget Airlines. I had to call to assign seat and pay for seat. The phone representative was horrible. Also, at the airport they told us to check in baby stroller which we did and they gave us a tag for stroller. The stroller never arrived in Auckland. We had to buy a new stroller. The food we paid for in advance was not cheap at all but they gave us egg sandwich.

Cons: They wanted $1000 to checked 2 bags because 2 boxes were not checked. Absurd charge for what is usually free. We will never fly them again. This is their cheap way to make money.

Pros: The price

Cons: The tight quarters, and the fact that I had to pay for a cup of tea. I also thought that the 160$ fee for a bag was completely ridiculous. I was traveling from another country and would not have known to pre buy baggage.

Okay 5.3

Cons: I booked an international flight between Syndey, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand on Jetstar. About a two weeks prior to our trip I received an email that, among other things, asked if I needed to Pay for "extra baggage". Naive me! I assumed that on an international flight that one bag was at no charge. But NO! When I got to the counter to check in for the flight I was told that since I hadn't paid for our one bag per person prior to now, that they would be charging us $100 US per bag. If we had purchased it prior to checking in the cost would have been $20 per bag. After paying $200 for our two bags I felt totally taken advantage of. Beware. "Extra Baggage" means ANY baggage!

Cons: I will never fly Jetstar again!! ONLY AFTER I BOOKED AND PAID, the system allowed me to book my baggage. Imagine my disgust when I was charged over $100 per bag!! If I had known the outrageous baggage charge, I would not have used this airline, and I never will again.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

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 prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons 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 don'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.
