Qantas tips & tricks

80-hour rule for seat selection

Because Qantas restricts access to sought-after seats to elite frequent flyers, you may not see those seats as available during the booking process. But these restrictions are lifted 80 hours before a flight. So, if you want to snap up your favorite seat, log in to Qantas Manage Booking 80 hours before departure, check for previously unavailable seats, and change your seat selection. Please note that some seats (as emergency seats with extra legroom) are available at an additional cost, with prices starting at 10 AUD (~7.5 USD).

Adjust your travel dates

Prices skyrocket during holidays – watch out for local holidays and adjust your travel dates to avoid expensive tickets. Cheap flights are non-existent during popular “red days” like Chinese New Year or Idul Fitri.  Prices can go as high as 5 times the price of the ticket for non-peak dates.

Get them early

To enjoy low price tickets, get them early – at least 3-4 weeks in advance. Near your travel date, Qantas prices will start skyrocketing and you will be paying a premium price targeted at latecomers. Use our Cheap Flight Center to find the dates with the lowest fares.

Watch for a good sale

Qantas publishes its web promotions frequently. To get a great bargain be sure to watch the sales on their website over the course of several weeks. Subscribe to their newsletter and follow Qantas accounts on social media. Or just use Promo Radar that collects promotions from all airlines in one place.

Best times to call Qantas

Qantas call centre wait times may be frustratingly long unless you have a high Qantas Frequent Flyer status (Platinum or Gold). Even if Qantas offers a call-back service, it doesn’t reduce the overall waiting time. To decrease lengthy periods on hold, try to call Qantas at off-peak times during the middle of the week. Experienced Qantas customers suggest that the best time to call is early in the morning (4 am – 7 am AEST). Also, late hours on weekends can increase the chance for your call to be answered promptly.

Fly around the world with the Qantas Oneworld Award

Oneworld is a multi-city award program on steroids that lets you fly around the world in exchange for your Qantas Points (as little as 130,000 Points in Economy or 300,000 Points in Business class). You can travel up to 35,000 miles with up to 16 flight sectors. A quick comparison with a return ticket from Australia to London which costs 110,000 Points, makes Oneworld probably the best way to redeem Qantas Points! There’s a small catch though – you will also need to pay a cash component to cover taxes and airline surcharges, most likely A$1,000 – A$2,000.

Find best Qantas economy seats

Contrary to the popular view, not all economy seats on a plane are created equal. Some seats have slight advantages over others. It all depends on the aircraft, so we recommend visiting the SeatGuru website, where after entering your flight number you will be presented with a detailed seat map. Hover over individual seats to compare quality, and check out other travelers’ reviews. Detailed seat maps on Qantas website may also be useful.

Tight airport connection?

Pick a set near the front of the plane if you booked connecting flights. Two or more flights on one ticket often have a tight airport connection, so being near the front exit door can shave 5–10 minutes off your deplaning time, especially on larger planes. Yes, Qantas charges extra fees for those seats, but it may be worth it.

Save 99.50 AUD on Qantas Frequent Flyer membership

Qantas Frequent Flyer program is free for citizens of countries other than Australia and New Zealand. Although, if you live in those two countries, you can take advantage of this promo code to also join the Qantas loyalty program without paying a 99.50 AUD membership fee.

Use SMS service for fast customer service feedback

Qantas recently introduced a convenient SMS service as a part of its Customer Support. It appears that SMS-es get replied much quicker than calls, live chat messages, e-mails, or even social media DMs. Reportedly, the Qantas staff that you can reach via SMS is much more knowledgeable and experienced than those who serve other support channels. To text Qantas via SMS, use 0477 QANTAS or 0477 726 827. Please note that Qantas SMS service is available to customers within Australia only.

Lost baggage prevention

Avoid lost luggage nightmare by removing old tags on your suitcases. Tags are printed with a barcode which is used for identification and tracking – so the old tags can really confuse baggage handlers and the conveyor belt scanners. They are one of the reasons so many bags miss their flight or get misrouted.

Book with a travel agent if your card is not accepted

If Qantas does not accept your credit or debit card, try to book your flight with one of our partners instead. Start with a flight search, then choose the partner offering the best deal for your ticket. Being independent OTA (Online Travel Agent) they focus on having the widest range of payment methods available – including most credit/debit cards, PayPal, Stripe, Google Pay, cryptocurrency, and more.
