    Answered Points earning on food and beverages

    We recently stayed at St Regis KL and I booked the accommodation via Qantas Hotels as the rate was significantly cheaper than direct with Marriott. I understand that the room charges, as not booked direct, will not earn any points. Does this mean that the food and beverage charges (eg...

    Bali and beyond

    Although not as exotic as some of the trip reports being written up at the moment, I thought I would add to the fray with a trip report on our impending Christmas break holiday. With all offices ‘closing’ for the Gentleman, MasterC and myself, I thought it was a good opportunity for us to...

    Qantas Gift Vouchers with child booking

    Hi Brains Trust I have done a quick search and couldn't find an answer to this question. Earlier in the year I bought a gift voucher for myself, the Gentleman and MasterC.

    Crown Towers Perth

    I thought I would post a quick review of my stay at Crown Towers Perth back in December 2017. I booked a base level room earlier in the year through Qantas Hotels when they had a 6 points per $1 promotion. Considering we arrived on Boxing Day, I was quite happy that I managed to grab a $300...
