We were not charged at the beginning of our trip from Aukland to Nelson for over weight bags so it was a surprise. We were told at the counter if you declare your over 7kg bags when you first buy your ticket it is quite a bit less of a fee.

Pros: The airlines stewardess was very helpful and friendly; However I would not recommend that anyone choose to use Jetstar unless they only have an under 7 kg Carry on bag.

Cons: There was literally no where to check in our bags online. We even asked our hotel concierge to look into how we could claim our bags and they could not find anything either . Thankfully we went to the airport early, were told to look at our confirmation online from the check in folks and found absolutely nothing regarding baggage there . and ended up paying for our bags at a reasonable rate because it was prior to check in ; however , other travelers were not so fortunate and ended up paying $70 per check through bag because it was literally impossible to find any place to check them in and people were stuck in a difficult situation without a choice . additionally we were told that we were only allowed 7 kg poor person carry on Travelers beware of this - to our knowledge it happened to international travelers, May have been New Zealander as well but are not sure about that . additionally we were told that we were only allowed 7 kg per person for our carry-on total carry on. This also is nowhere to be found on the Jetstar website !!!! for every killer that you are over you are charged an additional $15! We did arrive safely and the flight was fine .

Pros: The crew members were very nice and easy going.

Cons: The flight took off 25 minutes late. The boarding started later than it should have and took way too long. The airport was understaffed from the security point to the boarding point. That was surprising how in smooth both of those processes were based on seamless experiences at the same airport

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

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.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
