Jetstar and ZIP partnership takes off in time for the holiday season

29 November 2022 - Jetstar customers can now book domestic and international flights using Australia’s largest buy now, pay later platform, Zip. The collaboration is an expansion to the Qantas partnership announced earlier this year and provides more flexible payment options to Jetstar customers - just in time for the holiday season.

Both Zip Pay and Zip Money will be available for eligible Jetstar customers. Zip Pay allows customers to flexibly pay for purchases of up to $2,000, while Zip Money facilitates purchases of up to $10,000.

Jetstar Chief Customer and Commercial Officer, Alan McIntyre said, “Our research shows that after the pandemic customers are prioritising travel and travel experiences.

“We are seeing extremely strong bookings across our extensive network of domestic and international destinations, particularly as we head into the peak holiday season.

“Options like Zip help provide customers more choice in how they pay and plan their travel, and together  with our low fares, travel is now more affordable and convenient than ever.”

Zip’s Managing Director for ANZ Cynthia Scott said, “We know our customers are thinking about travel in their future plans, so we are delighted to be partnering with Jetstar to provide them with more flexible ways to pay for their fares.”

“Travellers will be able to sit back and enjoy their trip, knowing they will be in full control of their finances by giving customers access to our fair and transparent payment solutions.”

“Zip’s purpose is to help customers spend with confidence on things that matter the most to them. Our partnership with Jetstar is aligned with what our customers want, and having already partnered with Qantas in May, this was the obvious next step.” 

“With more travel destinations opening up and Christmas holidays on the horizon, we’re excited to see Jetstar customers pay with confidence using Zip.
