Hi all. I've been actively lurking on AFF forums for a while now, but I couldn't find a definitive answer to this question. So I decided to create an account and ask.

Has anyone had any luck getting a TRS refund when traveling to N.I. ? I found lots of conflicting information with some blogs saying yes and others saying no.

Have recently booked an award ticket flying QF BNE-NLK this November and I am interested to hear if anyone has had any personal experience with this.


Cheers, Jackaranda.

Welcome to AFF!

The ATO still lists NI as TRS eligible:

Some of the recent discussion on other threads being denied TRS is possibly confusion during COVID times. Hopefully someone with recent experience ex-BNE can provide an update?

When I went ex-SYD in May, I didn’t try because the NZ bubble had no long started and prior to that, there reports of TRS not operating. But DF was up and running for both departure and arrivals (including pre-orders).

Hi, SYD. My apologies for such a belated response. Thanks for getting back to me. I'll check out the link listed below. It's surprisingly hard to find information on this topic so I really appreciate it!

No worries. Actually, I’m surprised others haven’t jumped in to confirm or not their recent experience with TRS ex-BNE to NLK.

I'm surprised there are no trip reports either. Or that there is still ample award availability on these flights it's a great redemption rate considering the cost of the fare.

Quite an extensive TR here (pre-QF getting the temp gig):

QF was supposed to finish in August but with NZ in lockdown and a bunch of us in the SEast not able to fly, there’s probably a rare oversupply v demand for redemption seats.

I stand corrected. Thank you.

When I flew from BNE-NLK in November last year I was told no in Brisbane.

Being the only intl flight at the time I asked at the passport desk and was questioned if I was a Norfolk resident. When I said no they told me I wasn't eligible and to be honest I couldn't be bothered pushing it any further but I suspect I was indeed eiglbe provided I remained under the limit upon return.
