DS and I are flying interstate with Jetstar on Thursday and we've booked for carry-on baggage only (7kg each).
Do they allow you to check in car seats free of charge if you have a young child, regardless of the fare you've booked?
I haven't been able to find a clear cut answer online, and I've heard it takes a long time to get through to Jetstar to ask the question on the phone.
Can anyone confirm what the deal is?

Car seat question - Jetstar

Hi we have flown with Jetstar numerous times and they have always let us check the car seat for free.. I also did a quick check as I don't remember anything official about it.. One Jetstar page was a bit vague but this one http://www.jetstar.com/au/en/plannin...hecked-baggage seems to say they allow it (bottom quarter of page) hope this helps

I haven't flown with my girls for a while but when I have, you could check in one child item like a car seat or pram as checked luggage regardless of having carry on luggage.

Call centre wait isn't that bad...but it's mainly overseas ones answering all the time after hours

99% sure you can take child car seats regardless of your fare. It's not a service you pay for. You can also take prams.

All airlines allow car seats/prams or a porta cot free of charge. Most airlines allow max 2 pieces. I do recommend getting a quality cover for it.
