Webjet's One Day Only WORLD SALE On Today! - Webjet.com.au

If you're travelling to Europe next year, our Early Bird specials
are on sale too!

Doesn't seem like much of a sale to me, but then maybe I'm not searching for the right destinations...

Webjet's One Day Only WORLD SALE On Today! - Webjet.com.au

I'm pretty iffy about this sale. Webjet have done it before and I wasn't impressed then either.

There is no mention on the site what fares are on sale. Just an invitation to go searching for the discount fares.

When you search, you are presented with fares that are marked as Sale fares.

Here is an example:

Brisbane - Singapore 15 March 2008, returning 22 March 2008.

I clicked on one of the 'sale' fares from Qantas ($941 base + 317 taxes = $1258). The fare code is mentioned as VKBB/V and I selected QF51 and QF52 as my flights.

Using Expertflyer to verify the discount, I plugged in the same dates and checked the fare. Expertflyer says the base fare is $970.00. and it was the cheapest published fare on that day.

Indeed it appears that there is a small $29 discount off the base fare. However, since I pay Webjet $28.75 to book the ticket (a Transaction fee and a seat guarantee fee which locks in the price I've been offered) , I don't see the benefit I get. (The total fare worked out to be $1,287.02)

The cheapest fare offered on the same flights via the Qantas was a red-e-deal $1275.37+ 12.00 Credit Card surcharge = $1287.37

Yep big saving.

Since then, I've done a couple of other searches using high priced tickets, and there are indeed savings, but not the huge savings you might expect.

I wasn't able to find any savings worthwhile on the trips I wanted. Sometimes I wonder whether the definition of sale is the same as mine....

JohnK,

You're missing the point and obviously aren't using female logic.
If they say it's a sale then it MUST be cheap. You need to spend more to save more :!:

I think you've hit the nail on the head, John.

I have similar sentiments toward Webjet, but I might express them more genteelly.

Webjet seems to be a little travel agency which is somewhere on St Kilda Rd.

The more you travel and buy fares the more you realise that the agents are all selling the same products. Some just add more commission.
