Perks we once took for granted, like meals, snacks, and luggage costs are no longer included in today's airfares. With JetBlue, baggage fees are a la carte and they can get expensive. Don't you wish you could save some money and waive your JetBlue baggage fees, whether you're traveling across the Atlantic or across the U.S.?

It's nearly impossible to get rid of JetBlue baggage fees on your own, but if you have DoNotPay on your side, you have a far better chance. Let's take a look at your options, and you can decide which route you want to take!

An Overview of JetBlue's Baggage Policies

JetBlue fares do not by default include carry-on baggage. You can add baggage to your flight up until check-in—if there's room on the plane—but JetBlue advises you to purchase your baggage reservation well in advance of your trip.

How to Get Your JetBlue Baggage Fees Waived On Your Own

You can try and get JetBlue to waive your baggage fees, but given that their pricing structure is designed to make money off extra services like check-in luggage, and most of their customer service channels are automated, it's highly unlikely you'll get anywhere. And it can hurt to try, if you find sitting on hold a painful experience.

Here are your best options for the DIY method of getting your fees waived:

1. Through a travel agent

While this isn't exactly getting your fees waived "on your own," travel agents often have some leverage with airlines. And if you are a favorite customer of your travel agency, you might have some leverage with them.

2. By phone from the United States

Call JetBlue customer service at 1-800-538-2583 (1-800-JETBLUE). This is their general customer support line, so you'll likely be passed up to a supervisor once you manage to connect to a live customer service agent. You can also use this number to book your flight, so if you're booking by phone this is an excellent time to try and negotiate a fee waiver.

3. By proving you're a veteran or active in the U.S. military

JetBlue offers veterans enrolled in the Veterans Advantage program a 5% discount on flights, with two free checked bags.

How to Let DoNotPay Get Your JetBlue Baggage Fees Waived

Do you want a shot at getting your baggage fees waived without jumping through hoops or joining the U.S. military? You'll likely have far greater success if you have DoNotPay on your side. Here's how it works:

  1. Search "appeal fees" on DoNotPay, choose the Fight and Waive Fees product, and select the type of fee you want to appeal.

     

  2. Select the merchant you want to appeal fees for and enter the details of your transaction, including an associated account if you have one.

     

  3. Submit your case! DoNotPay will generate the best argument for your case and make sure your fee waiver request gets sent to the merchant for processing.
