can I trust bestjet.com?

Hi

Anyone had any experience with bestjet? I usually use skyscanner to look up flights then book through the airline directly but this time it is cheaper to book through bestjet (referred by skyscanner) than the actual airline (China Southern airlines)....

are the legit?

Don't know if they are legit but i's like to bet their prices are not live and you will end up paying more for no customer service whatsoever. If you need anything sorting out you will find you have multiplied your problems a thousand times over.

Have you read up about them? They are probably similar to any other Australian travel agent.

I'm looking at Bestjet for flights to London with Cathay Pacific (also sourced via Skyscanner), and they are nearly $300 cheaper than booking direct with the airline.

Hi Vicki

A friend and I have now booked that flight to Nepal (through Bestjet), as far as we heard no one had any problems with them..... so far so good for us, will definitely post if anything goes 'wrong'.

Most travel agents give their address. This mob quote only a PO Box in Fortitude Valley, which does not inspire much confidence.

For the fare I'm considering Bestjet is only $6 cheaper than Travel.com.au, a company I have used many times with success and will continue to use.

Something of a mixed message here.

They're an online travel agency so a physical address on there website is not really needed but a search reveals it is 5 22-26 Constance St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006.
