Qantas and Uber have had a points-earning partnership since October 2017, making it possible to boost your Frequent Flyer total when using Uber's rideshare and delivery services.

To earn points, you'll need to link your Uber account with your Qantas Frequent Flyer account. You can do this through the Qantas app by tapping "book" and then "Uber".


How many Qantas Points can I earn with Uber?

There are two ways you can earn Qantas Points with Uber:

  • You can earn Qantas Points directly when you're travelling to and from selected larger Australian airports.
  • You can convert Uber Rewards points to Qantas Points. Uber Rewards will launch in Australia in early 2020. Once that happens, you'll be able to convert 750 Uber Rewards to 200 Qantas Points. You'll only be able to do that if you're a Gold, Platinum or Diamond Uber Rewards member. To reach Gold, you need to earn 1,200 Uber Rewards.

You'll earn 1 Qantas Point for every $1 spent on airport Uber trips, regardless of your tier.

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
