Knowing first hand of how hard it can be to contact Jetstar and also seeing how many people get to this site when searching for a way to contact Jetstar, I thought it might be a good idea to have a list of contact phone numbers and email addresses people could try. These contacts may or may not get your through to Jetstar, but they may be worth a try.
I will also add more contacts as I learn of them.

Booked a flight with Jetstar over the 2019 Christmas period? You may want to a have some sort of contingency plan as Jetstar ground crew, baggage handlers and pilots expected to strike in the weeks leading up to Christmas, specifically between 13th and 20th December according to the Jetstar travel alert on the strike.

Jetstar has been ordered by the Federal Court to pay fines totaling $545,000 for misleading it's online customers with it's 'price dripping' tactic when purchasing online.

Wait till you hear about the charges when he tried to use a $50 Jetstar voucher.
None of this will come as a surprise to regular visitors to DontFlyJetstar.

The Unofficial Jetstar Refund Policy

After my long battle with the Jetstar Customer Rep, I decided to post this online so that Jetstar users at least know what they are getting into before calling for a refund. Here is the Unofficial Jetstar Refund Policy Guidelines:
- Offer of a full refund is not a commitment that Jetstar will refund your fare.
- After receiving the offer a full refund, you may call customer service to ‘request’ a refund.
- There are no defined guidelines that determine a refund request’s success.
- Jetstar’s decision is final and will be made known 15 business days after you make your refund request....Read Complaint

Never try to change your booking..

My partner and I booked a flight from Sydney to Melbourne over the phone.something I will never do again..however we finally got sorted only to find that my partners name was spelt wrong . This was fixed quiclkly . Then a circumstance occured that meant we had to change our flight date. According to the Fare Rules included in the flight comfirmation it clearly states that changes can be made . Now all we wanted to do was change the date by one month.. same flight No ,same destination and same time. We found like so many others it seems that a $50 EACH non-refundable charge is applicable . There is absolutely NO mention of the amount of this charge and I guess like others we assuned that it may be like the $6 booking fee maybe a bit more.. but $50 is outrageous. I have been fobbed off......Read Complaint

Don't pay Jetstar by bank transfer!

I booked four tickets for my family on 16th January via Jetstar website. Fortunately, I saved a copy of the booking page and the booking number. I took Jetstar's advice from their web site and paid by bank transfer as I have an account in Australia. My bank completed the transfer the following day. I still don't have confirmed tickets and my booking has disappeared from their website. When I log in to my Jetstar account, there is also no record of my booking. When I phoned Jetstar it took twenty minutes before anyone answered (costly, even on Skype as I live outside Australia) The Jetstar representative took my booking number and said I should wait 7 days for my booking to be processed! I have booked scores of airline tickets over the years and have never had to wait 14 days to receive......Read Complaint

Refunds for Japan!!!!

how bloody annoying

I know of 3 people - one travelling to japan in april the others on may 10th and may 20th...ALL called jetstar and were given refunds...

im travelling on the 14th and after speaking to maybe 5 operators and one supervisor...they would not grant me a refund.

i was as vocal as i could be...doesn't make sense to give other people refunds (esp those travelling after the April 18th deadline as noted on their website) and not me?

are the operators simply telling these people that a refund will be given just to get them off the phone?...Read Complaint
