    Earning Points when shopping with Qantas Partners

    Did you use any voucher as part of your purchase? Normally you cannot earn points if you include a discount voucher. I've made purchases from Myer in the past and the points were allocated correctly.

    Earning Points when shopping with Qantas Partners

    Following one of the many previous instances when points were delayed by well over 3 months, I contacted Qantas about this and received a reply stating that points may take up to 2-3 months to be credited, completely ignoring the fact that it has already been well over 3 months. I'll try...

    Earning Points when shopping with Qantas Partners

    Some merchants take 6 months before points are allocated or Qantas bothers with following up on emails. I am still waiting on points from a purchase I made back in November 2020.

    Travel from Norfolk Island to Sydney requiring quarantine?

    The form was from the federal department of Home Affairs. There was a link to this form on my Qantas booking, implying that I need to fill this in.

    Travel from Norfolk Island to Sydney requiring quarantine?

    Happy to report that no quarantine was required, it's just a case of government department mis-managing quarantine forms. We were even given some covid-19 form to fill-in at passport control on the way in, only to be told later that there is actually no need to fill them in.

    Travel from Norfolk Island to Sydney requiring quarantine?

    Agreed - it should be considered domestic travel. The Qantas website probably added the link because the flight arrives at the international terminal. But when I filled in the form on the Home Affairs website I specifically entered the departure point as Norfolk Island - it was on their dropdown...

    Travel from Norfolk Island to Sydney requiring quarantine?

    I have a trip booked from Sydney to Norfolk Island next week, returning to Sydney on the following week. On the Qantas website I was asked to fill in a Department of Home Affairs form - I guess because Norfolk Island is a semi-international destination. After filling in the form I received an...

    Travel Pass - how to confirm option selected

    Hi all, Some time ago I opted for a Travel Pass with the Double Status Credits offer for some cancelled flights to South America. I received the email confirming this, but the email with the actual Travel Pass only arrived after several weeks and required a few phone calls to the Qantas Hotline...

    Qantas credit voucher validity for flights after 31 October 2020

    Managed to get through to Qantas at 1am last night after waiting on the line for "only" 40 minutes. They agreed to convert my useless credit voucher to a travel pass, with validity until the end of 2022. Although it does take some time to convert - hopefully they won't change their mind in the...

    Qantas credit voucher validity for flights after 31 October 2020

    Interesting. I specifically asked about the travel pass and was told that while I can apply for it, its validity will still be until 24 Feb 2021 only.

    Qantas credit voucher validity for flights after 31 October 2020

    After patiently waiting for Qantas to cancel my December flight to South America, I received an email over the weekend that my flights have been cancelled and converted to a credit voucher. To my disappointment though, as my flight was booked way back in February, and the departure date is in...

    General Discussion/Q&A on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    Completely agree with you. The Australian government seems to be waiting for the situation to get as bad as Europe before taking any serious action to bring it under control. It is far from under control now, so the current measure are obviously not working.
