How Webjet Evolved

The travel industry in Australia has long been associated with a complex network of industry participants, airlines, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, computer reservation providers, all operating in an interdependent manner in delivering travel to Australia's holiday and business market.

At Webjet we felt it was time to remove this complexity, harness the emerging technologies and put consumers in the driving seat to enable you to book premier branded travel when you wish from the convenience of your home or office. Flight schedule and fare information previously only available to travel agents, is now also available to you.

Webjet is 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.

We arrange ticketing for electronic bookings ( license 023 5566) and for any paper tickets issued, these are processed by our ticketing operator ( license 023 4391). For paper tickets your credit card funds will be transmitted direct to the ticketing agent under secure site encryption using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

Webjet is an independent company operating under a marketing and distribution agreement with Qantas and is not otherwise affiliated with the Qantas group.

Webjet is a public company, (code: WEB), having been listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in March 2000.
