Insight into the Jetstar Club program - part one

If you're like me you're probably wondering whether it's worth joining any of these budget airline clubs?

Tiger Airways, Jetstar, AirAsia all have a program that you can join, but is it worth joining?

So after ignoring the countless marketing, I decided to try one of the budget airline clubs.

The Jetstar Club membership will be the focus of this post, and I will look to cover the others in subsequent posts as well.



Anyway, the reason for this post, is if you were like me, you have been wondering:
  • Why should someone sign up for Jetstar Club?
  • What are the benefits?
  • What sort of club membership deals do they really have to offer? 
  • How often do they share Jetstar Club deals? 

Why should someone sign up for Jetstar Club?
It depends on how you fly and whether you're comfortable flying Jetstar. I will share why I signed up for Jetstar Club, and that is because I like Jetstar, having flown with them for years in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and into Asia to Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand. I also really like their flexible add-on plan though I buy this only when it makes sense (e.g., dates/time may change, I want food, etc.). 

I find myself in Singapore, so the perspective of these posts will be from Singapore.

So I signed up for $39 SGD especially since they were offering a $40 SGD Jetstar voucher and I was planning to fly with Jetstar anyway. As the economics made sense, as I think that is pretty good to give this offering a try. (Though, it is important to note that the voucher you receive is not immediate, so if you're joining for this voucher, please note that it takes 1-2 weeks to arrive and you will have six months to spend it).

It'll cost me $39.99 SGD as an annual membership fee (after first 12 months).


What are the Jetstar Club benefits?
  • At least 4 member only Club Jetstar sale events, including Take a friend for free each year (Club member must book and be part of the traveling party)
  • $40 sign up voucher
  • Discounts on travel insurance (10% off) and hotels (5% off) sold through the Jetstar portal. Though I find these prices very similar to Agoda, Hotels.com prices (as well as the possible discounts available - if you have the right credit card promotions around)
How often are the Jetstar Club deals? 
I have been a member since May 2014. So far I have received the following offers:

  • May 2014 - no Jetstar Club deals
  • June 2014 - no deals
  • July 2014 - Take a friend for free deal (three months after I joined - details below)
  • Aug 2014 - no deals
  • Sep 2014 - no deals
  • Oct 2014 - no deals
  • Nov 2014 - (four months later - details including screenshots on the next post)


What are the Jetstar Club deals like?
Deals can vary but they can be pretty good, as long as you know the right dates to travel.
