You can now earn Qantas Points when you book a pet sitter
Plus, travel with peace of mind knowing that your furry friend is in good hands.
There are few downsides to travelling, but one of them is definitely leaving your beloved pets behind. Luckily for Qantas Frequent Flyers, there’s now another silver lining to leaving your furry best friend in the hands of a pet sitter while you’re away.
Thanks to a new partnership with Mad Paws, you can now earn Qantas Points for booking a local pet sitter while you’re away from home. You’ll earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent on Mad Paws bookings plus a flat rate of 500 Qantas Points if you’re a new Mad Paws customer. As well as overnight pet hosting (at the pet sitter’s house) and pet sitting (at your place), you can also earn points on pet day care, house visits, dog walking and grooming.
If you book through the Qantas site, you’ll just need to select your pet location, the dates you’ll be away and then include your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership number to earn points on your booking.
“Lots of people choose to take their pets with them when they fly somewhere on holiday, and we’re seeing a 10% increase in those bookings this Christmas compared to last,” said Qantas chief officer Olivia Wirth. "But when you need to leave a pet at home, our partnership with Mad Paws gives a new option to manage your trip planning with Qantas and earn points in the process.”
If you can’t stand being away from your pet, don’t forget you can book your pet to travel with you on the same flight. Or if you’re travelling overseas, you can also book your pet’s travel with Qantas Freight.
