BEEN dreaming of that getaway to Bali, or Thailand, or America? From tonight, it will be even easier to make it happen.
AUSTRALIA has been asking for it, and it’s finally been delivered.Passengers booking Jetstar flights to international destinations can now use Afterpay — the book now, pay later option previously only available when buying Jetstar’s domestic airfares.
In an Australian-first partnership, Jetstar teamed up with payments platform Afterpay in September to offer domestic passengers the option of paying off their airfares in small, regular payments.There were a few restrictions: customers had to spend a minimum of $200 — which funnily enough meant Afterpay didn’t apply to many of Jetstar’s dirt-cheap fares — as well as a maximum spend of $1000.
Now, as well as extending Afterpay to international flights, Jetstar has scrapped the $200 minimum spend and raised the transaction limit to $1200.And customers can book flights using Afterpay up to two weeks before their flights, rather than four weeks.
