Jetcost is a travel website, whose metasearch engine allows users to browse and compare rates and availability for flights, hotels and car hire.

Overview[edit]

The firm's products are available in more than 30 countries, with a strong position in Europe, South America and Asia.It has a particularly significant role in the French market[1]

Jetcost is a metasearch website, allowing customers to search and compare prices on flights, hotels and car hire. Jetcost provides a list of all available travel deals, after which users are automatically transferred to the airline or online travel agency’s website to complete their booking. The firm acts as an intermediary, and does not directly sell flights or travel products.

Since 2013 Jetcost has been a brand of the Bravofly Rumbo Group,[2] a company listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange.[3]

History[edit]

Jetcost was founded in 2006 in Paris, France, and was one of the first travel meta-search websites on the French market. Initially specialising only in the comparison of airline tickets, by the end of 2006 Jetcost added other new travel products: car hire, hotel, package holidays and other travel and leisure products and services. In 2007 the company started to expand to other European countries.

At the end of 2013 Jetcost [4] was acquired by Bravofly Rumbo Group.[5]
