New from Jetstar a Price Beat Guarantee, good way to make sure you're getting the cheapest flights in Australia, worth checking all the other airlines and then telling Jetstar what the best price you've found is... I wonder if some of the other airlines will start offering tickets at cost price so that Jetstar have to go 10% below that, could create quite the competition in the Australian airline industry.

Price Beat Guarantee
As one of our valued customers, we think it’s important that you know exactly what you can expect from us, and the high level of customer satisfaction we strive for in everything that we do. That’s why we created our Customer Guarantee.
We are also committed to offering you competitive fares, which is why if you find a published internet airfare from another airline that is lower than the lowest available comparable Jetstar fare on Jetstar.com, on the same route for a comparable time, we will beat that fare by 10%.
If you find a published internet airfare on another airline that is lower than the lowest available comparable Jetstar fare on Jetstar.com, call us to book with Jetstar and we will beat the other airline’s fare by 10% (provided we can verify the lower fare when you call to book). The comparable fare must be for a one way direct flight on the same route at a comparable time.
If the other airline offers checked baggage allowance as an optional extra, or the fare includes up to 19kg checked baggage allowance, we will make a comparison against the price the other airline charges for a fare excluding checked baggage / up to 19kg checked baggage and our Starter fare excluding checked baggage allowance. Any Price Beat Guarantee Jetstar discounted fare will only be available for a Jetstar Starter fare excluding checked baggage allowance. You may then choose to add 15kg – 40kg checked baggage allowance at our usual rates – no discount will apply to any checked baggage allowance. If the other airline’s fare includes at least 20kg checked baggage allowance as a mandatory inclusion, we will make a comparison against the other airline’s price and our Starter fare plus 20kg checked baggage allowance. Any Price Beat Guarantee Jetstar discounter fare will only be available for a Jetstar Starter fare plus 20kg checked baggage allowance. You may then choose to increase your checked baggage allowance, up to 40kg, at our usual rates – no discount will apply to additional checked baggage allowance.
If you find the same or comparable available package (same or comparable flight plus the same of any of hotel, car or activity) on any another internet site that is lower than the lowest available Jetstar package and you book the package through our call centre, we will beat the price on the other site by 10%, provided we can verify the lower package price when you call to book. A "package" means at least one Jetstar (JQ) flight plus at least one of accommodation, car hire or activity component that is booked into the same booking reference as your flights.
