News Flash

Fast.

So if you want to get it, you gotta be quick about it.

Terms & Conditions:

  • This package consists of 7 RETURN FLIGHTS to 7 DESTINATIONS for 1 passenger only, INCLUSIVE of 20kg checked baggage allowance for all flights, for a NETT price of $2018.
  • A maximum of 4 packages can be booked per person.
  • There is NO child, family or group discount.
  • All flights sold as part of the Jetstar Long Weekend Flight Package are non-transferable and non-refundable. Any flight not travelled will be forfeited and no refund will be provided.
  • Flight changes are permitted, subject to change fees and fare difference.

Damn worth it?

After some quick calculations, it was deduced that…

The total you would pay with Jetstar, should you go for individual flights, would amount to $2,232.16. That’s roughly around $200 difference from the package fare ($2,018).

Not too bad. $200 could get you a lot of stuff.

So yeah, get it if you’re one who likes to scrimp and save on his leaves, enjoys short but routine trips year-round and appreciates the small savings here and there.

On the other hand, if you’re the kind that prefers 2 week-long vacations and not have your schedule tied down by pre-affixed dates, get the ala carte ones instead.
