Flying Qantas and Partners

Redeeming your Qantas Points for award flights on Qantas and Oneworld Partners will typically give you the best value. Qantas has their own Qantas Points Calculator to help you calculate the distance and cost in Qantas Points flying between two cities. Just remember that you will still have to pay taxes, fees, and carrier charges when redeeming your points. You'll also want to watch out for airlines that have high surcharges like British Airways.

You can redeem your Qantas Points on flights with the following airlines:

  • Qantas
  • Air France
  • Air New Zealand
  • Air Niugini
  • Air Tahiti Nui
  • Air Vanuatu
  • Aircalin
  • Airnorth
  • Alaska Airlines
  • American Airlines
  • British Airways
  • Cathay Pacific
  • China Airlines
  • China Eastern
  • EL AL
  • Emirates
  • Fiji Airways
  • Finnair
  • Iberia
  • Japan Airlines
  • KLM
  • LATAM
  • Malaysia Airlines
  • Qatar Airways
  • Royal Air Maroc
  • Royal Jordanian
  • S7 Airlines
  • Solomon Airlines
  • SriLankan Airlines
  • WestJet

Classic Reward Flights

The absolute best value will come from redeeming your points for Classic Reward flights. This will give you a lot more value than you would get when booking a standard award flight. Take this trip from Sydney to Perth for example.

qantas points sydney to perth

This flight would cost you A$391 if you were to pay cash or 18,000 points plus pay $36 if you were to book an Economy Classic Reward. This redemption would give your Qantas Points a value of 1.97 cents per point which is great! Generally, short-haul flights in and around Australia and New Zealand will give you pretty good value when it comes to booking Classic Rewards.

Here's a round-trip flight that offers both Economy and Business Classic Reward space.

qantas points sydney to perth

The economy flight that costs A$526 would cost you 20,300 Qantas Points plus A$71 giving your points a value of 2.24 cents each while the business class flight that costs A$2,531 would cost you 57,000 Qantas Points plus A$71 giving you points an excellent value of 4.31 cents each.

Here's another example flying from Brisbane, Australia to Auckland, New Zealand.

qantas points brisbane to auckland

This booking would give you a value of 1.1 cents per point which isn't bad. This is probably the lowest I would recommend redeeming Qantas Points for if you're looking to get the best value out of your points.

Good value isn't just for short-haul trips. You can find good value in long distance trips as well. Here's a flight from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles, California, United States.

qantas points sydney to los angeles

When compared to the sale price of $757, redeeming 41,900 Qantas Points along with paying $147 in taxes/fees would give your points a value of 1.45 cents per point which is great.

Standard Redemptions

Standard redemptions will give your points a value of around 0.64 cents per point on average. This is a lot lower in value when compared to Classic Reward Flights. Here's the cost of standard redemptions for the flight from Brisbane to Dubai.

qantas points brisbane to dubai
You'll dish out more than double the points when it comes to standard redemptions.

This same flight that would cost you 50,300 Qantas Points plus A$181 as a Classic Reward would cost you a whopping 108,100 Qantas Points as a standard redemption. This would give your points a value of 0.65 cents per point (AUD).

I highly recommend sticking to Classic Reward redemptions whenever possible in order to maximize the value of your Qantas Points. When booking your flights and looking at the list of results, you can toggle the option to view Classic Rewards only.

Qantas Hotels

You can redeem your Qantas Points on the Qantas Hotels portal for stays at hotels around the world. This will give your points a value of around 0.75 cents (AUD) per point which comes out to being around 0.41p. There's a few hotels that have promotional pricing or are listed as a classic reward. These bookings can give your Qantas Points a little bit more value than the basic redemptions.

You'll get 0.75 cents (AUD) per point when booking through the Qantas Hotel portal.

Vacation/Holiday Packages

Qantas Points can be redeemed for holiday packages through both Luxury Escapes and APT Holidays. Redemptions for these both start at 4,000 points for a A$20 discount which gives your points a value of 0.5 cents (AUD) each which is around 0.28p.

Car Rentals

You can redeem Qantas Points for rentals with both Avis and Budget car rental. Booking car rentals using Qantas Points will give you around 0.64 cents in AUD which is around 0.35p in GBP.

Shopping & Merchandise

Redeeming your Qantas Points for merchandise will typically give you a pretty low value. The actual value you'll get depends on what you're redeeming your points for. You have a pretty large amount of redemption options to choose from including, but not limited to:

  • Apple
  • Bose
  • Dyson
  • FitBit
  • Garmin
  • LG
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • Tefal
  • Weber

Points can be redeemed through the Qantas Store.

Transfer Partners

You can transfer rewards earned with several programs directly to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account. This provides a good path to earning points on everyday spend and can earn you a nice amount of point thanks to sign up bonuses and good transfer ratios.

Transfer To Qantas Calculator

This Qantas Points Transfer Calculator will calculate the transfer of rewards earned in other programs to the Qantas Frequent Flyer program. Enter any amount of points in the calculator below and it will output how many rewards are needed in the partner program to equal the amount you specified.
