How to earn Qantas Points on Uber trips to the airport

Booking an Uber could get you closer to your next free flight.

You can earn Qantas Points on your next trip before you step on the plane with Uber. Qantas announced a partnership with Uber in October 2017, allowing frequent flyers to collect up to 3 Qantas Points per $1 per $1 spent to and from eligible airports in Australia.

When the partnership launched, you could earn Qantas Points when you booked your Uber through the Qantas app. However from July 2018, you can now earn Qantas Points when you book your ride directly through the Uber app. You’ll just need to link your Uber account with your Qantas Frequent Flyer account to start earning points.

How many Qantas Points can I earn with Uber?

The number of points you’ll collect will depend on your tier in the Qantas Frequent Flyer program. You can compare the different earn rates below:

Qantas tierUber earn rate
Bronze members1 Qantas Point per $1 spent
Silver members2 Qantas Points per $1 spent
Gold, Platinum and Platinum One members3 Qantas Points per $1 spent

You can earn points when travelling between these eligible airports:

  • Adelaide
  • Avalon
  • Brisbane
  • Byron Bay
  • Cairns
  • Canberra
  • Gold Coast
  • Hobart
  • Maroochydore
  • Melbourne
  • Newcastle
  • Perth
  • Sydney
  • Toowoomba
  • Townsville

Earn 2,000 bonus Qantas Points on your first Uber trip

If you haven’t signed up to Uber yet, you can score 2,000 bonus Qantas Points if you join and book your first Uber trip for anywhere in Australia (not just trips to the airport!).

This partnership is another way that Qantas Frequent Flyers can manage their entire travel experience, from booking flights and Ubers to checking in, through the Qantas app. Uber is an increasingly popular way for flyers to travel to and from the airport, so it was only natural for Qantas to form this union with the ridesharing service.

This partnership is now just one of two ways frequent flyers can earn Qantas Points on transport. You can also download the ingogo app and link it to your Qantas account to earn points on your next taxi trip.
