Great news! Qantas has released reward seats to London and Rome for the 2024 peak travel season – in economy and business class.
We’ve also noticed reward seats released on other international routes to Asia and USA.
This is a great opportunity to use your points for a vacation next year.
The Europe seats are available from June to August only. Qantas flies Sydney to London via Singapore with A380s, and from Perth to London with a 787 Dreamliner. The seasonal Perth-Rome flights, also on a Dreamliner, operate from 15 June to 3 October 2024 on select days of the week.
A one-way trip from Australia’s east coast to Europe costs 55,200 points in economy and 144,600 in business class, plus taxes and fees. From Perth, this drops to 51,200 and 126,500 points respectively.
These seats will surely be snapped up quickly.
Be aware that when we tried to add connecting flights from other cities in Australia, we received an error message – so you may only be able to book departures from Perth or Sydney (hopefully Qantas fixes this glitch soon).
In addition, Qantas has reduced the cost of “Points Plus Pay” bookings by 50 per cent. This applies to Qantas, Jetstar and partner airline international flights in premium economy, business and first class.
Points Plus Pay is different to reward seats: it lets you purchase any available cash fare using points. For example, with the 50% discount, you can cover $1000 of the cost of an airfare with around 82,000 points. That’s more expensive than a reward seat, but availability isn’t an issue.
These offers end on 27 October.
And don’t forget, until 31 October, you can pick up a huge 75,000 bonus Qantas Points plus a $450 travel credit, lounge passes and complimentary travel insurance with our favourite Qantas credit card, the Qantas Amex Ultimate Card. Don’t miss out!
