If you choose to use Afterpay for your Jetstar flights booked online at Jetstar.com, a non-refundable payment fee (link to our fees and charges page) will apply at the time of making the booking, but repayments are interest-free. Afterpay is only available on purchases with a minimum spend of $200 excluding payment fee and a maximum spend of $1000 excluding payment fee.

Repayments are made directly to Afterpay, not Jetstar. Late payment fees will apply if your card has insufficient funds. Refunds for Afterpay follow the same terms and conditions as bookings made with any other payment method. Please refer to Afterpay Terms and Conditions for late payment fee details.

If you fail to pay any amounts according to the Payment Schedule, late payment fees will apply on each payment that is due but not received.
