How can Jetstar justify charging $8.50 per person per sector on a booking for a debit/credit card processing fee..
from their site:
"A Booking and Service Fee of $8.50 per passenger, per domestic flight applies"
I know that POLI and Direct Deposit and god forbid a Jetstar Mastercard has no fees but :
Banks do not charge retailers for using a Debit Card and typically charge 1% of the amount for a Credit Card transaction.
$39 flight x 2 legs = $78 Credit Card fee $17, total $95 to pay. Disgusting when the bank will charge them less than a $1 or nothing at all for this transaction.
Jetstar may have low fares but any business can have low prices and then inconvenience you at time of payment with a whopping 20% add on thats entirely unjustified.
Id rather pay more with a better airline who charges fairly.
