The popular Qantas Restaurants table booking platform, which was shut down unexpectedly late last year, has been rebooted thanks to a new partnership between Qantas and Quandoo. It launches tomorrow 15 August 2019.
The collaboration with Quandoo, a worldwide booking platform that connects diners to restaurants, will enable frequent flyers to earn Qantas Points when they make reservations through the Qantas Restaurants portal on Qantas.com and the Qantas app.
Qantas Frequent Flyers will be able to earn 100 points per person, per booking across 18,000 restaurant partners in over 12 countries. It is the first-time members have been able to earn Qantas Points on international restaurant bookings.
Quandoo is one of the largest online restaurant booking platforms in the world with listings ranging from independent restaurants to much loved chains and Michelin starred establishments. As well as Australia, it also operates in Austria, Germany, Finland, Italy, Switzerland, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Singapore, United Kingdom, Turkey and Hong Kong.
Qantas Loyalty, Chief Executive Officer, Olivia Wirth said the opportunity to earn Qantas Points on restaurant bookings would be welcomed by frequent flyers.
“We know how much our frequent flyers like to dine out, so rewarding them with Qantas Points for eating at their favourite local restaurant or somewhere special while they’re on holiday is going to be a real drawcard.
“Food and wine constantly rank as some of the top interests for our members, so we have been looking carefully at how we can offer a rewarding experience that is easy-to-use. The ability to now earn points for booking restaurants overseas is a great addition to people’s travel experience and helps get them closer to their dream trip.
“Members can also maximise their points earn when dining out by paying the bill on their Qantas Points earning credit card,” she added.
The Qantas Restaurants portal will be live on Qantas’ website here from tomorrow.
