Use Qantas Points to book your next Luxury Escapes getaway
Qantas Frequent Flyers can now earn and redeem points with Luxury Escapes.
Qantas Points chasers have more ways to use and collect their points on luxury hotel getaways from today.
In February, we announced that Qantas and Luxury Escapes had partnered to allow frequent flyers to earn points on accommodation bookings. But from today, you can also redeem your Qantas Points for accommodation booked through the luxury travel website.
Qantas Frequent Flyer members can cover the cost of their Luxury Escapes holiday by using 4,000 Qantas Points for $20 off their booking. You can opt to either pay for all of or part of the cost of your stay with points.
Plus, you’ll continue to earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent on the total amount of your booking, even when you use Qantas Points! There aren’t many instances where you can earn points on purchases you’ve covered with points, so this is a big win.
So when you book that beachfront stay in Bali for $2,299, not only can you cover the cost with around 460,000 points, you can also earn 2,299 Qantas Points.
THE POINTS FINDER TAKE
You're probably still better off using your points to redeem flights rather than book a hotel stay at Luxury Escapes, but it's one of the few opportunities that allows you to earn points on a purchase paid with points.
If you haven’t already, you’ll need to sign up to Luxury Escapes online and then follow the prompts to link it with your Qantas Frequent Flyer account.
Although the partnership has only been available for just over three months, Luxury Escapes has already seen a lot of interest from Qantas Frequent Flyers.
“In less than four months we’ve seen tens of thousands of Australians link their Qantas Frequent Flyer and Luxury Escapes accounts so they can start to earn Qantas Points when they travel with us,” said Luxury Escapes general manager Blake Hutchison. “Today’s announcement offers our customers an even more rewarding travel experience and we’re excited to see how our members respond.”
