Qantas has further extended its flexible booking policy until 31 March 2021: a great incentive for customers to book flights given the potential for more travel restrictions and border closures if Covid-19 cases pop up.
For paid fares, Qantas customers can change the date of their flight one time prior to departure without incurring a change fee (which is not as generous as Virgin Australia’s policy, which permits unlimited changes). It applies to domestic Qantas and trans-Tasman flights booked by 31 March 2021 for travel until the same date.
If you want to change your flight dates, you’ll need to do so before your scheduled date of departure, and also cover any fare increase for the new flights.
For reward seats booked with Qantas Points, Qantas has also extended free changes and cancellations until 31 March 2021. If you choose to cancel, the total Qantas Points used and any taxes, fees and carrier charges paid will be refunded in full with no cancellation fee.
Before booking, make sure to check the latest Government travel requirements, which may include mandatory health declarations, use of face masks, entry permits, pre-approval and quarantine (possibly at your own expense), or you could be denied entry.
