Qantas Frequent Flyer and Luxury Escapes have partnered to give Qantas Frequent Flyer members the opportunity to earn and use Qantas Points when booking an eligible holiday through Luxury Escapes.
From today, Qantas Frequent Flyer members will earn one Qantas Point for every dollar they spend on eligible Luxury Escapes holidays in Australia and around the world.
With an average Luxury Escapes booking costing $2,000, a member would earn 2,000 Qantas Points, in addition to points earned on other travel expenses like eligible Qantas or partner airline flights, using Qantas Cash (a prepaid travel money card) and car hire.
In the coming weeks, members will also be able to use their Qantas Points towards the cost of their Luxury Escapes holiday and earn Qantas Points on the total value of the booking at the same time.
Luxury Escapes General Manager Blake Hutchison said he saw immense potential in the partnership and expected customers to be delighted with the opportunity to ‘upgrade’ their room choice or travel experience using points.
“Creating five-star holiday experiences, whether it’s through the journey or the destination, is something that Qantas Frequent Flyer and Luxury Escapes are both passionate about so this partnership makes perfect sense,” Mr Hutchison said.
“Hundreds of thousands of Australians each year are booking their holidays with Luxury Escapes and we’re thrilled to partner with Qantas Frequent Flyer to offer our customers an even more rewarding travel experience through the ability to earn and soon redeem Qantas Points.
“Our two million Australian members already turn to Luxury Escapes to discover great deals to amazing places and now they can enjoy the extra benefit of being rewarded with Qantas Points if they’re a Frequent Flyer member too.”
Qantas Loyalty Executive Manager Commercial David Young said Frequent Flyer members love to travel so giving them a new option to earn and soon use their points on a holiday will be well-received and make their whole travel experience more rewarding.
“It’s a great way for our members to build up their points balance to use towards their next holiday before they’ve even set off and earn points on the bulk of their holiday expenses,” Mr Young said.
“And having the option to use points when booking a trip with Luxury Escapes will make indulging even more appealing and more affordable, especially if they’re combining it with points used for a reward flight or upgrade to one of our premium cabins.”
