Webjet - Cheap Flights
How Webjet Evolved
Australian-owned Webjet has established itself within the travel industry by removing complex and interdependent booking arrangements, harnessing emerging technologies and putting consumers in the driving seat of their own travel bookings.
Leading the way in booking cheap flights online, Webjet.com.au has since grown to become Australia and New Zealand's leading online travel agency. Webjet Hotels also enables consumers to book suitable accommodation at the same time as transport, including car hire, or combine your flights and hotel in a single holiday package, creating a seamless travel booking experience. In 2014, Webjet introduced cruise bookings and Webjet Exclusives, again extending its online travel offering.
Webjet’s multi award winning online travel service includes being a licensed Travel Agent (no: 32282) and a member of the Travel Compensation Fund, operating and complying with the obligations set out in the Travel Agents Act 1986.
Webjet arranges ticketing for electronic bookings ( icense 023 5566) and for any paper tickets issued, which are processed by a ticketing operator (license 023 4391). For paper tickets, your credit card funds are transmitted direct to the ticketing agent under secure site encryption using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Webjet is a public company, (code: WEB), having been listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in March 2000.
Webjet has operations in Australia and New Zealand (operated as Webjet.co.nz) as well as North America, Singapore and Hong Kong. Webjet also has a franchise agreement in place with BidTravel in South Africa, as well as business-to-business solutions through Lots of Hotels and SunHotels.
In December 2012, Webjet entered agreements to acquire ZUJI in Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore to expand its presence in Asia. This acquisition was completed on March 22 2013.
