More Pressure On Webjet's Booking Fee?

Webjet Down Under gets a booking fee for the majority of its bookings. Its counter part for long haul Jetabroad also charges a significant fee. However some of the other online players have been removing the fee. And now it seems the retail/conventional market groups are now doing this.

Qantas Holidays - part of the Jetset/Stella Group of companies has just abolished its $AU 60 fee for booking retail airfares.

How long can Webjet sustain the booking fee?

That is going to get harder and harder particularly as other markets around the world have largely abolished a consumer fee for online airline ticket bookings.

Time will tell...
