Qantas Frequent Flyer members can now use their Qantas Points on exclusive discounts at up to 144,000 hotels around the world through Classic Hotel Rewards. The addition of 144,000 international hotels including Accor, Marriott. Hyatt and Shangri-La, follows the launch of Classic Hotel Rewards in Australia in February 2017. It gave Qantas Frequent Flyer members the opportunity to use their Qantas Points at more than 180 hotels and resorts in Australia.
Classic Hotel Rewards give members access to member-only rates and another way to get value from their points balance, following the popularity of the Points Plus Pay option on qantas.com/hotels. Qantas Frequent Flyers can search for Classic Hotel Rewards on qantas.com/hotels by selecting the ‘Pay with points’ option and check availability using the Classic Reward ribbon icon.
The number of points required varies depending on the type of room and destination, with members able to select their property type and minimum rating preference, as well as their maximum average points rate per night. Like Classic Flight Rewards, the availability of Classic Hotel Reward deals is limited, so members are encouraged to book as early as possible. If a Classic Hotel Reward is not available, members can opt to book with Points Plus Pay or cash and earn Qantas Points on eligible bookings.
Cancellation and refund policies are dependent on the individual hotel’s policy and members will not earn Qantas Points on Classic Hotel Reward bookings. While there are no additional costs payable via qantas.com/hotels, there may be resort fees and other fees that need to be paid directly to the hotel.
