Whether you want to stay at a Hilton, a Travelodge or an independent hotel, there are 4 different ways you can earn Qantas Points on your accommodation. For starters, you can earn Qantas Points per $1 spent on bookings made through Qantas Hotels.
You can also transfer points from hotel loyalty programs including Hilton Honors, Marriott Rewards and IHG Rewards Club, or earn points directly with hotel partners. Learn more about these options so that you can earn more points towards your next frequent flyer reward.
Qantas Hotels is a booking service similar to sites like Hotels.com and Expedia. It has over 200,000 listings around the world and offers a standard earn rate of 3 Qantas Points per $1 spent on bookings.
Here are the steps you need to take to get points through Qantas Hotels:
Keep in mind that the name on the booking must match the name on your frequent flyer account. Also, you can’t split points between two or more people on the same booking. As long as you follow these steps, your points should show up on your account around 8 weeks after you check out (although it could be longer in some cases).
Sometimes Qantas Hotels may run a promotion offering additional points for bookings made through the service. For example, you could earn double points with a particular hotel or triple points on all bookings made during a promotional period. These offers come and go, so it’s worth checking the Qantas Frequent Flyer website for any current promotions you could take advantage of when you’re ready to book your next stay.
If you’re a member of a hotel loyalty program, you may be able to transfer points to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account or earn Qantas Points instead of hotel reward points. There are 6 major loyalty programs that give you this option, each with different earn rates and details that we’ve outlined below.

Each of these hotel rewards programs also has its own terms and conditions that you’ll need to follow as a member. Make sure you read through them when you sign up, before making a booking or before you transfer points to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account.
Many partner hotels let you earn Qantas Points directly when you provide your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership details, including Adina Apartment Hotels, select Crown hotels in Australia, Langham hotels and Travelodge.
To earn points with one of these partners, you need to ask about it at the time of your booking and then show your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership card when you check out. Depending on the hotel, you can get the following earn rates for your room price or stay:
In most cases, you’ll earn either 3 Qantas Points per $1 spent in Australia or 1,000 Qantas Points per qualifying stay overseas, with only a few hotel partners offering the other earn rates. You can check out the full list of partners based on location and earn rate below.
With 4 different ways to earn points and a wide range of hotel partnerships, you have plenty of opportunities to earn Qantas Points on accommodation when you travel. But keep in mind that points are only earned on “eligible” bookings or stays, which could exclude some bookings that offer a promotional rate.
In some cases, this could mean you have to choose between earning Qantas Points and saving on accommodation costs in some cases. So before you make a booking, check the fine print on earning Qantas Points and compare other options to decide if it’s worth it based on your goals.
The Qantas Hotels search portal also gives you a way to earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent on Airbnb bookings using the following steps:
As with hotel stays, the name on your Airbnb booking has to match the name on your Qantas membership. As long as you follow the booking process through Qantas Hotels, you'll be credited with points around eight weeks after you've completed your stay.
