There was an unmentioned rule about those vouchers. The vouchers were valid 3 months longer than the expiry date. That changed in May 2018 when JetPrivilege wanted to move to Evouchers. Now, old vouchers aren’t automatically accepted after they expire.

The problem with the physical voucher was that they always needed to be handy. I specifically carried them around for 3 months so that I could use them on my return flight from Europe. 

Tier and Amount of Vouchers

Silver – 1 Voucher

Gold – 3 Vouchers

Platinum -5 Vouchers

etPrivilege is going live with a new do-it-yourself upgrade process on October 12, 2018. This means you no longer need to speak to an agent to process an upgrade. You can do the miles or voucher-based upgrade yourself.

Jet Airways Upgrade Vouchers

Introducing Jet Airways eVouchers

Effective October 12, 2018, upgrade vouchers will cease to exist as physical documents and will be replaced by eVouchers. On October 12, 2018, all unutilized upgrade vouchers will be credited with eVouchers in the ‘My JP Wallet’ section of their JetPrivilege account, along with the expiry date of the original physical vouchers. Thereon, upon tier review, members will be issued a new set of eVouchers depending upon their tier attainment criteria.

If you or your family members have passed around those vouchers. They would not be valid anymore. They would require to electronically transfer them to you. I see this as a positive move as there have been countless times when I felt if I had the voucher, I would have upgraded myself. There have been countless times, those vouchers expired before I could make a right use of it.
