Hello fellow travellers!!

I am hoping to become a more and more frequent traveller and am debating the merits of joining the QC.

I have been told that as my father is a member I can apply and join under his membership as an additional card holder for about $250 per year. Is this accurate does anyone know, as before I hassle my father I would like to know for sure!

Also as an additional cardholder on his membership does this mean that when I am travelling I am entitled to use the lounge myself and also have a guest along as well?

I have been lurking in here all day and there are some great tips and advice! I think there is a forum for everything under the sun nowadays!:p

TIA
Leigh :D

http://www.frequentflyer.com.au/community/airport-lounges/need-find-qantas-9333.html



For QC:
Flying with Us - Qantas Club - Membership Types




Individual membership

A standard one-year individual membership and options for two year, four year, Life and Senior Life memberships are available.
Partner membership

As a Partner member, your spouse or partner can also enjoy the exclusive privileges of The Qantas Club at reduced rates, whether you travel together or separately.
To be eligible for Partner membership, the Primary member must have a current membership and you must both reside at the same address.
Partner members must have their own membership card.
Life membership

There are substantial savings to be gained from Life membership and you won't have to worry about renewing. Life Partner Membership is also available.
Senior Life membership

For members aged 60 or over, Senior Life membership allows you to take advantage of lounge privileges at even greater savings. Senior Life Partner membership is also available.
Corporate membership

If your organisation has 10 or more staff who fly regularly Corporate membership offers great savings.
Annual Guest Cards

If you would like someone to accompany you to a Qantas Club lounge on a regular basis, you may purchase an Annual Guest Card.* Annual Guest Cards are available for purchase by contacting The Qantas Club Service Centre. Valid for 12 months, your Annual Guest Card allows one additional guest to enter the lounge if accompanied by you. Annual Guest Cards are governed by the terms and conditions of The Qantas Club Program.
* The Annual Guest Card is only accepted in Qantas operated lounges branded as The Qantas Club and joint Qantas/British Airways, Qantas/American Airlines® or Qantas/Air Pacific lounges. It is not accepted in associated and partner airline lounges (British Airways, American Airlines®) and oneworld® airlines lounges.
Qantas Club Renewal Rates

The table shows the renewal rates for Qantas Club Individual and Partner memberships as at 15 February 2006. The rate varies based on your country of residency for tax purposes.
Qantas Club individual Corporate members will need a Corporate Scheme Number to renew online. If you have forgotten your Corporate Scheme Number, you need to contact your company Corporate scheme coordinator to obtain the number.

Thanks LoTrOz!!

I had a feeling that this person's information might not be accurate.

I have checked at at work and they don't have a corporate membership so that it out.

Oh well, for now it may be outta my reach, but I will get there.

Off to Bali for a week at the beginning of September and would have loved to have relaxed in the lounge first. But I think that hubby would kill me if I joined just for the sake of using the lounge! :) After all he has not batted an eyelid at me going to Bali and staying in a private 5* villa. (While he the por bugger is too busy building his business into a success so we can both benefit!) How can I justify it to him?? Any good suggestions!

Does anyone know if there is a Qantas lounge in Bali?

LeapyLeigh..

As Simongr said..you can get it cheap via this forum...or other corporate deals.

have a read of this string for options:
http://www.frequentflyer.com.au/comm...ntas-9333.html (Need to find a Qantas Club corp. program)



For Bali...(and ALL other lounge locations)

have a look at

Flying with Us - Qantas Club - Lounge Locations - Asia


and you will see there is an Associated Lounge and nota QC.






Also for 2 FREE QC passes consider about getting an AMEX..preferably witha sign on points bonus. Read the Credit Card section for American Express on this site..


http://www.frequentflyer.com.au/community/american-express-rewards/

Havea read through..

There is current offer for 40,000 pints for an ultimate..BUT witha Yearly fee.

Other deals are fee free for the first 12 months.

The QP T&C's in this regard state:
3. Types of membership
...
3.3 Partner memberships are available under the following conditions:
...
c) The Partner must reside at the same address as the Primary Member.
There is no requirement of the Partner member other than same address.

So If you live at your father's home and he has no other partner member and he is currently a Qantas club Member (whether by paid QP membership or status), then you are quite free to join the QP as a partner member.

The cost (including Joining Fee) for an Australian resident is $385 for one year. Once joined, the annual renewal is around the $250 quoted.

Actually, the requirements are pretty clear IMHO:

"'Partner' means the spouse, or domestic partner, who resides at the same address as the Primary Member;"
"Domestic partner" is normally used to cover same-sex/non married but partnered relationships. You could probably get away with this type of membership for a sibling/parent-child membership, but not really according to the rules.

The reality seems to be for these cases is that Qantas appear to be
  • more than happy to get the $$, and
  • not wish to investigate the domestic affairs of over 18yo's.
(Not saying it's right or wrong)

Thanks Serfty,

But alas....We are returning home with Jet* *Class. The rules say we can use the QC lounges on the *Class Fare but thats it. :(

Still I might just ring up and see what I can find out!

Gosh you are all so helpful.

Thanks one and all ! :D
