Earn and Burn Qantas Points on TripADeal holiday packages

0

Qantas Frequent Flyers can now earn and burn points on a huge range of holiday packages through TripADeal. The new offer comes as Qantas takes a majority shareholding in the Australian-made travel business.

TripADeal is a company that curates and sells package holidays. There are a large range of packages available. They include

  • African safaris,
  • Japanese ski trips
  • exploring Antarctica,
  • South Australian wine tasting tours and
  • Bali beach holidays.

All of these ready-made holidays can now be booked using Qantas Points, regardless of which airline is part of the package. Frequent Flyers will also earn three points for every $1 they spend with TripADeal and can also use ‘points plus pay’ to make their holiday happen sooner.

Earning and Burning Points with TripADeal

Earning Points

Under the partnership with TripADeal, Qantas Frequent Flyers can earn 3 points per dollar spent on package holidays. Earning points is fairly straightforward. Once you have selected your holiday, proceed to the payment page, where you will have the opportunity to enter your Frequent Flyer number.

Burning Points

On the flip side, you can use your points as part payment on packages at TripADeal. Using the calculators attached to their packages, it looks as though they are offering 1c per Qantas Points ass payment toward packages.

For example, a 22 Day Mexico, USA & Canada retails for $5,999. However, you could put 300,000 Qantas Points toward this and save yourself $3,000.

You will still earn 3 Qantas Points per dollar on the cash component. In this case, the additional $2,999 will get you 8,997 Qantas Points.

Thoughts

This partnership gives Qantas Frequent Flyers new opportunities to earn and burn Qantas Points. The earn rate, at 3 Qantas Points per dollar spent is quite respectable. On the other hand, when you are using points, you are basically exchanging points at the rate of 1c per point. While this is better than some options (such as the famous toaster), you can get better value through an Award flight.
