Price Lock allows you to temporarily hold the price of a fare you have found on the Jetstar website.

Say you’ve found a ticket price that suits your budget, but you need to check if the dates are OK. Choose Price Lock and for a small fee, we will hold the ticket price for 96 hours. That’s four days! You’ll need to pay the full ticket price before the Price Lock expires.

Price Lock is not available for all fares. If it is available, you’ll see the Price Lock option at the bottom of the initial booking screen.

Price lock is available for bookings at least 30 days before the departure date on flights from Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Price lock is not available on Jetstar Pacific (BL) flights, sale fares, hot fares or price beat guarantee bookings.
