The information on this website has been compiled by current and past JET's and some of it may not be relevant to your situation and/or outdated. Always use your own judgement and conduct your own research when organising your travel plans.
Always do your own research into flight carriers, both in terms of cost, fare inclusions/exclusions and most importantly airline safety. For some budget carriers once you pay for the exclusions you may not be saving as much money as you first thought. Some budget carriers will also weight carry on and you may have to pay the excess.
We recommend browsing prices for flights and accommodation in incognito/private browsing mode. This can prevent prices rising when researching and booking over multiple dates.
Book as early as possible when you plan to travel in peak periods such as Golden Week, public holidays and New Years. These dates can book out, and prices can be higher than expected. Expected popular destinations to be extremely crowded during peak times.
